    Do you guys suppose moderators/admins could have their names made a different color in the lists? It was always nice to be able to know when a mod was online.

    Yes, or listed in a separate section away from the rest of the online users.

    I know, but isn't that the only way to find out who's online right now?

    We probably won't have a list like we had before, but I'm working on something that will list all the moderators, etc.

    Please note, it is rare that someone needs to find a specific moderator whom they don't know the name of and need immediate attention. For example:

    "There is a problem! I need a moderator's help IMMEDIATELY!" - In these cases a member should ALWAYS use the report feature. Even if the system shows a moderator online, they might not be. We also don't want members to spam PM 10 of us with the same note. The report flag lets the staff who happen to be online give something attention.

    or

    "Wow, I really gotta share this with <moderator name>, they will LOVE it!" - In this case, just put their username in the search bar, and then on the results page click "users" and send the staff member a PM.


    If there are cases where a list of all moderators online would be helpful and are not addressed by those two situations, please let me know.
