It might not show up, one of the servers is missing the file, so it'll be fixed soon.

Will the dot disappear or change color when one is offline?

Please do a full refresh to view the new one (CTRL+F5) it's less obtrusive and we can thank Timan for that so rep him :p

Very good. Thank you Timan.

I'll join you. The dot looks so out of place and the whole space, looks strangely wider.

As long as there's something, it's nice to know.

But for the record I had no issue with the banner at all.

The other one was more bright and showing.. This is just a dot, a plain old green dot.

Anyway, everyone has their own opinions :)

Could we move up next to the name? (on the left of course) Its better than the old icon, but feels out of place. :\

What we have now is how its gonna remain on atlas. We can't keep changing things to please everyone.

It won't go next to the user names since some users have extremely long names.

After seeing the change i think it's the location of the image what's not good. Not to nit pick or anything:rofl: but i think it would look better in the strip above, in the same box as the username.

Good work though, the new theme is ace.

Ooh. that looks even better. The current one does look a bit out of place, especially compared to what you posted there :yes: Oh well, if Timan is leaving it as it is now, it should still please most members who complained about the red banner.

Better than the banner, but I would have preferred a "Status: Online/Offline" where Group, Posts, Joined date and Location live.

Personally I like

Status: Online / Offline

But that's just personal preference, I like the current one ( and the idea above ).. both are nice, out of the way, and most importantly don't draw attention to themselves which the old banner did :)

Very Nice.

Banner was annoying so thanks. simple text under the avatar that says online would be sufficient if it is planned to bring this back.
