Hi, can anyone explain the little red and green dots next to your user name.  Also have you offended the God's when your title passenger, brakeman etc. vanishes. /DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/sick.gif

Someone said that the red and green dots represented if the person was logged on (green) or not (red), but I noted that mine was red when I was logged on. Maybe its the other way around?
Nope, I'm red GREEN now. 

EDITED to fix the mistake my fingers made!

I'm logged in and I'm green. Hmmmm. Dwight, Shad any answers?
That is correct.. Green = currently logged in and online
red = not online
Veddy INterrrrestink!! Lots of bells and whistles here. It's gonna be a while before I have it all down. I really appreciate topics like these.
Hey Dwight, the new site is a hoot isn't it "pun intended". Thanks Shad for the dot answer.
I'm logged in sometime my dot is green and sometimes it's red?
I've got the same issues--I've seen me as both red and green. Strange.


Just be happy the dot is not purple... That can be bad....
Or pink even. That could raise some eyebrows! 8D

Very useful tool. Thank you for clearing that up. Actually, I hadn't even noticed it until someone else pointed the dot out to all of us.
But that still doesn't answer the question of why some of us have lost our passenger/brakeman/etc. status. 
My dot was just red, and I'm obviously logged in as I just made a post in another thread. I hit "Refresh" and wah-lah... I'm now green.
Cheezz, I never even noticed the dots!!! Just posting so I can look at mine heh heh heh................
Hmm  checking to see if I am red or green,,,

Sweet! Green!

And when I am not here, I don't care if I am red....
