Who's Online function?
« on: May 23, 2018, 12:39:43 AM »
Does anyone else use the "Who's Online" function at the bottom of the home APF page?  It's been pretty handy for me to see what some guest users are viewing in old threads.  I've read several interesting older threads by seeing what guests are viewing. For instance, I would not have discovered the thread on the Ghibli movie poster exhibit in the Japanese train station without looking at "Who's Online".  It's kind of a weird combo of spying and poster enlightenment all rolled into one!  Okie

Never knew about it.

Never used it.

Having just looked for it, can't find it.

The link I have saved for this site is the 'Show unread posts since last visit' link.  Goes straight to where I want.

I don't use it myself very often, but it's located at the very bottom of the main forum page.  Here is a link:

This used to be a source of great hilarity - back in the beginning you would quite often see "Guest is printing" - Insert one of the nudity threads  ;D

Ah, inside 'All Poster Forum - Info Center'

I hadn't expanded this section.

Thank you.
