    Buddy List questions

    I love the way we have our buddy list here and how it can be a little window that you carry around with you.

    I just have one question. Sometimes my buddy's name turns red. I was wondering what that means. It's been bugging the heck out of me and I thought I would just finally ask. Thanks!

    Apparently, the user's name in red means they've just come on-line. I'm not sure how long it stays red once they arrive...

    Hmmm that's weird because I'll have a buddy online and then all of a sudden they'll turn red.

    I know it's all silly, but I'm just so curious about it.

    I think I figured it out. A buddy of mine just posted in a thread and right as she did that, her name turned red.

    But then again, I could be completely wrong.

    Maybe it means your buddy just got annoyed by something she read?

    Oh, then I must be red all the time if I'm on someone's buddy list.

    Anyway. . . yea I think your buddy turns red when there has been activity like logging on/out or posting.

    Thanks for the help all!

    Wait! We still need to test the matter - scientifically, of course.

    I've been trying to figure it out for a long time as well. I think you're right Hazy. If the name turns 'red', 'm pretty sure it means that a 'buddy' has just posted. I'm pretty sure it is NOT that they have just come online.

    Hmm. On the vBulletin support site, where I searched for the answer, they weren't real clear. They seem to have forgotten exactly who or why they coded the buddy list names to turn red.

    Well that's very reassuring, John. Hopefully they didn't forget about more significant things.
