    Is this feature completely gone?... I want the "members list" back please....

    What I mean by this is, the list that... well.... lists all the members of this board.

    Thanks in advance.

    I think it is handy when you need to find a moderator quick to tell them about a certain thread getting outta hand or if someone is spamming, just click on their name in the Member list then PM them...

    Thank you for being more useful than the administrator himself.


    Edit:
    By the way, bgizzle, I simply wanted to know where I stand in terms of how many posts I have. That was all. Just something that came to interest.

    actually, what we could use is the "whos online" feature that used to list all the members who were currently on iPTF; something that appears to be removed. i am curious as to why?

    I don't want people having access to the member list for that very reason. Posts don't matter!

    Secondly, there have been reports of PM spam, and with the members list, it is really easy to do that.



    The "whos online" query is very heavy because it does several JOINs (including on the huge user table). Also the generated HTML is huge since it has to include the names, usergroup (mod or not), and link to profile for over 1,000 users, making the page slow.

    Yea, I never said post count meant anything...

    I just wanted to see where I stood in the list.

    Anyway, thanks for the explanation.
