  What is the little Red and/or Green dot above the Avitar photo for? Is that to let everyone know who is on line?

I believe it is there to show who is offline or online. Makes senses to me.:D

is it green when your on line, red when off line...I guess not.....when I check some other post of mine they were green so I figured if I posted this message it would be green, nope it was red so it must be something else..../DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/blink.gif

As far as I know it's supposed to represent whether the user is currently on-line or off-line (i.e. based on what  the Too Tip says when you point at the icon with your mouse), however, I find that it doesn't do a really good job of accurately tracking the state of the user.

Steve, The dot on my post above that was red right after I posted it, is green now, looks like it might only update when you've quit the MLS and come back later....?

Yep, that's what it is it doesn't update the status dot for any new post until you exit and come back....

Thanks Becky. I figured that's what it was but just wanted to be sure.
