not sure if it's built in to the software, but is there any chance of making the little man bright green when you are ONLINE and greyed out when offline?

the color scheme right now, at least on my monitor is very hard to distinguish.

as you can see in the pic below, I am online (light blue symbol) and frerddy is ofline (grey symbol)

just wondering if you can make it "pop" a bit more so it's a bit more obvious....if not, no biggie it was just a thought. Smile

i have to say, Andrew, the green on-line is more prominent than the blue.

i've switched themes to "ACE NAVY", but i can't get used to it.

it wasn't worth it just for the on/off logo color. Sad

Oh, that change wasn't for every theme? I like the green and gray dots, Andrew, but agree with Bruce. I really like the Luxure theme so it's not worth switching. Is there a way of making the wee person in Luxure go from gray to green?

I'll change the on/off icons either tonight or tomorrow.

I can change just the on/off icons without anyone having to switch themes.

I made the change and confirmed that the new online/offline images are live on the luxure theme.

if you don't see them, clear your cache/cookies for your browser.

Thanks a million, Andrew. I did just what you suggested about clearing the cache/cookies and it worked perfectly. While I liked the little man, the green dot is just so much more practical. I notice it right away.

Thanks, again, for another job well done. Thumbsup

Excellent job, Andrew. Much more distinguishable with the green colour indicating on-line and the darker grey for off-line. It sure makes it easier to see. You are doing fantastic work, Andrew, and, i for one, really appreciate it, my friend, as you are helping make this the best on-line shaving forum! Aaaaa

as long as it's something that makes sense and is worthwhile, without causing a lot of load on the server, I usually try to make it work.

we definitely listen to what you guys say, without a doubt.

Cool
