Can you explain how the online/offline indicator works?

I like it.

I do not feel any need or reason to disable it, but is that possible if desired?

Thanks!

I have just put it in, so at the moment there's no way to disable it.

User is online (activity in the last five minutes)

User is idle (last activity was between five and ten minutes)

User is away (last activity was between ten and twenty minutes)

User is offline (away for longer than 20 minutes, session logged out) 

I think this can give you a general idea if you should expect a reply sooner or later. Note this is also shown in the user's profile page.

Also note this does not reflect activities in the mobile site. I will update that later.

I have now added an option to the user profile that will allow users to toggle between actual status or show always offline.

Great feature. Let's hope the boss doesn't realise I am on line a lot during work time! Well, as I am my own boss, it should not matter so much.

I think it is broken. It shows BOTH freitasm and Johnr offline at the same time. That can't be right! ;-)

Always a nice feature. Personally I'd like the icons to be slightly smaller or for there to be more space between the icon and the Stalk icon. I'm a bit funny about things being evenly spaced :D
