I was checking out who all was on-line today and I see HConn has a * after his name and Mac has a +.


???

What the ...? Anyone got an explanation?

I believe the + means they are on your buddy list.
I don't know what the * means.

I think * means invisible. When I'm on the forum and invisible, I see my name with a * in the list. Moderators can see through invisibility.

So + * are invisible buddies huh?!

I want a special signal for those lurking behind a PA ISP account. :cricket

There are just some times technology is not ahead enough. :pout

I could probably say something to go along with that, but it would probably just get me in trouble. lol.

And where are you people seeing these special characters anyway? Not seeing even the + after anyone's names.

you have to put peeps ON your buddy list, first, Jen--then when they're logged on, they'll show up for you with the + symbol... :D

I have about 4 or 5 people on my buddy list, so I guess they're just not on when I am, then. lol
