Is there a way to identify whether users are online or not?

Can i see persons are online or offline? Like someone put comments in my request, is it possible to check the person is online or went offline or was online for X amount of time?

This inspire me and many others, as a user to come stackoverflow.com more and more, as experts are around.

Thank you

Click on their name, there's a field on the profile called seen, which let's you see when it was the last time they were online.

Hell no. How is it my business whether another user is "online" or not? People answer when they have the time and inclination; they don't if they don't.

For what it's worth, the "seen" field in each user's profile already works in a similar fashion.

  • Yeah, next they'd want a Delay posting this question until the following user [textfield] appears on-line gizmo.
