May not be the right place to post this but was no better place.


Hi like the title says, this may belong else where. This is just a question about the forum. i noticed the three icons when members post, showing the os icon that, that user was using when they post the message. Then there's Tux and a white thing.
My question is what does the question mark on the tux icon mean and what's that white thing too?

Hi,

The question mark on the Tux's belly means that user is online. You can hide your status from your profile page.

Kind regards,

Eric

Hi,

Question mark: Online (hover over it with the mouse), no question mark: off-line (or invisible).

The white thing is part of the reputation system. You can "award" people reputation when an answer is given that solves your problem and/or gives info that is valuable.

Hope this helps.

Reading this thread reminds me of something... Sometimes, when I look at the "currently active users viewing this thread," some users have a plus sign next to their user name. What is that for?

Users with a plus sign are those ones in your friends list.
