    Paranoia

    Ever have the feeling you're being followed?

    Okay, so I'm sort of kidding. But I do actually have a question. Say I go into the premium forum. When I link to it from the main forums page, it'll say that there's nobody in there. But when I go in, it'll give me a list of users who are supposedly in there too. I come out, and again it'll say that nobody is in there. Then I'll go into some other forum, CE or something, and those same names are in there too. So then I'll look at the "Who's Online" thing, and the people who were supposedly where I was are in some other forum altogether. It's not a bad thing, just... weird. And it's always the same people.

    So is it just me?

    I don't know why you feel paranoid, Amanda. It sounds like *we're* the ones being stalked.

    Ha! It's funny, because YOU are one of the names I see wherever I go.

    Hmm. I've experienced the same thing and you *both* are some of the people I see. Weird.

    I think the names and number of users stay that way for X minutes, even it they are no longer there. I thought I read somewhere that it was 15 minutes but, I could be wrong.

    I've noticed this too, especially with you, Lucy. I thought maybe it is because some people have multiple windows open and are browsing a couple of forums simultaneously...?

    I have noticed this same thing with Unklescott, and thought it was more than one window open.

    that is weird. I'm on the other side and think *Hmm, looks like I'm following _____ around again*

    So, is it better for your self esteem to think of yourself as the follower or the one being followed? Hmmmmmm....
