There's also an option for you to add people to a "watched" list. I don't know what kind of notification you get when somebody you choose to "watch" is posting/online, but it's a creepy option.
It's the third option down under the Watched categories. And it's also available if you simply click on a user's name, above their avatar in any thread.
No, carp, this isn't the same thing as "Who's online," or "email me because I have no life and need to know every word that gets typed into this thread." And it's not the Buddy thing. That feature I like, it makes it easier to PM my favorite peeps. But it's not the same thing.
It's not a deal breaker, but it is the only thing I don't like about this place. And, obviously, I seriously don't like it.
I'm over and totally out on this. LL
