What?
« on: May 29, 2010, 06:25:17 PM »

Sometimes when I check the "Who's Online" option (that's right, I love monitoring the status of forum-goers), it says "Nothing, or nothing you can see..." What does that mean, and be serious, please.

that means the forum user is doing a null-action, or something that the system doesn't have a name for. "nothing, or nothing you can see" is a flag value. Not sure what it could possibly be, but I've seen my own status say that.
Another possibility is that it's an admin thing, to block nosy users like you from knowing what they're doing. ^^

That would be Unknown Action. I've seen it as well and I'm sure it's different than Nothing, or nothing you can see...

I think Unkown action is just a filler for an unnamed action, and nothing, or nothing you can see is an idle setting. The nothing you can see was probably a joke.

Well, "Unknown Action" is when someone is editing, not modifying, for that still counts as "posting," but editing.

I think that it's when moderators dontwant people to see them spying they can decide to show up as guests. When you see that they are doing something moderator-y

Like none of us have heard that before maybe we should accept the fact that no one will tell us or will they.
