You know, where the avatar pic goes a rounded shape with a glow?

Im guessing it means someone is online, but I am not sure.

It most certainly does mean they are online, since if you hover your cursor over their icon as well, it will say either 'Online' or 'Offline' which respectively goes with the Halo being on or off.

I assume a new feature of the site :ghost:

The rounded edges and the red 'glow' designate that the user is online.

I worked that out myself! xD

It no longer works... I am online RIGHT NOW and I do not glow. Neither does DoN and he's online right now as well. (Of course when I log off in a second I will no longer be online, but clearly at time of posting I must've been online...!)

This looks like a very strange amalgamation of posts already made in this thread, mainly mine, but as if it's been once through google translate or something... what is going on?

That's a bot. Sadly, it cannot be banned yet since the path to a required plugin is faulty, so its profile page can't be loaded at the moment.

Hi everyone its Carl Jackson here.
Thanks for telling me what is an avatar, I did not understand its meaning first. Actually the reason behind this is the generation gap I was almost 55 years old and living in supported living community. The reason for joining this forum is to stay up to date with these kinds of things and I have so much spare time which I don't have anything to do.

Hi there,

This is quite an old thread, concerning new features that came with a forum upgrade a while ago. If you'd like to introduce yourself and/or ask questions about avatars or any other forum feature, please head here:

Introduction forum - Fresh Blood

In the meantime, I will lock this rather old thread!
