Lightbulb Any chance of changing the online/offline icons ...


... to make the "offline" the first image in the Linuxquestions.org logo(faded white question above Tux) and the online the last image in the logo(yellow-orange lightbulb-question thingy above Tux) ?


I have a hard time recognizing whether that little question mark is there but the faded white and the yellow bulb are easy to recognize. I cannot be here that much so I prefer to answer when questioner(questioneer?) is online.
Also tend to forget which is which ...

Good idea? Not good...?

It would really help identifying forums that do|do-not contain new posts too, as the same icons are used for 'contains new posts' -vs- 'contains no new posts'.

Thanks for the feedback. We have no plans to change the online/offline indicator at this time, but may do so as part of a larger redesign in the future.

OK. Thanks for letting me know. I hope you write it down on the list to consider when other work has to get done.
