View Full Version : * after my name. What does it mean?

20-02-2006, 11:35 PM
I have noticed that there is a * after my name in the box that tells you who is on line. Can any one tell me what it means.

Also I believe there is a chat room here but i cant find it. When i first registered, an instant message popped up and someone helpfully guided me into the chat room but i cant find it now!!!

The asterisk means you do not show in the online lists - you can change that in the UserCP under Edit Options :)
No idea about a chat room though!

The asterisk means you are invisible - signed in but without anybody else knowing that you are signed in.

The Chat Room is here:

http://www.british-genealogy.com/chat.html (http://www.british-genealogy.com/chat.html)

It may take a few moments to load.

It was introduced back in Nov 05, see this link for info:

I don't know how many members use it though!


PS, just checked and I don't think that link is active anymore, sorry folks

It worked for me but there was no-one in there - we'll have to pick a specific time to go in and chat I think

Ladkyis and I enjoyed a conversation or two, with two or three other members, usually on Sunday evening, but then Christmas got in the way. Same with the Derbyshire Chat Line. It would be good if they could be resumed.

Not sure that the stealth feature works

I have been showing an * for months but my location is always visible irrespective of whether the feature is on or off
