    What happened to the list of users online?
    I thought it was nice to be able to see if my friends where online or not.

    Miss it.

    Is it gone or have I just missed some ajustment or something??

    Hey it's there again

    but not in alphabetical order like it used to.
     
  7. If nothin' else if you have everyone already loaded in your buddy list you can open that to see who's online.

    So this feature is VERY server intensive. It takes a lot of dough to keep it up... I had three options:

    1. Keep the feature entirely - makes the HAMB slow and costs me dough
    2. Remove the feature - pisses you guys off
    3. Keep the feature, but minimize its impace - this is what I am going with right now... Amazingly, keeping the list in random order instead of alpha is much cheaper on the server.

    Thanks for your answer, boss.
    Everything has it's natural explanation I guess.

    Get your point.
    Important, but not THAT important.
    Do what ever you need to do to keep the HAMB allive and running.
    I'm so ever thankfull for it beeing around.


    I'll look into the buddy-list feature ELKY. HAve no experience with it but I'll try iy out.
    Thanks
    Paul
