    Howdy,

    Is there an @CODE that tells you the number of currently active users are logged in?

    I don't think so. There's the "WHO" @-code which lists the active nodes. Were you wanting just a count of active nodes?

    Does active mean there is a live connection (whether logged in or not) - then yes, that would be OK.

    It might be nice to also know how many logged in users are also on.

    I was wanting to change my main menu, to essentially show "the count of other people currently online". Not that I expect there to be many, but it saves me from going /L to see if somebody is still on.

    IE: I would have:

    Users Online: 1

    Got any good ideas for the @-code itself?

    Here are my ideas (but none that I like that much):

    UNODES (nodes in-use)
    NINUSE (nodes in-use)
    ANODES (active nodes)
    TINUSE (total nodes in-use)

    Trying to keep it short (cause it is going to expand typically to a 1-2 digit number), but not too cryptic.

    And it would be trivial to add another @-code which just reported the number of
    *other* nodes in-use (excluding yourself):

    ONODES (other nodes in-use) ?

    Yeah, I like "short" too - since it makes it easier with the editing of the ANSI screens.

    How about NA which is Nodes Active (with a current live connection right?)

    You could then also have a UA which is users "active", or LI users logged in...
    (if you delineate a node with a connection vs a node with a logged in user). ...*

    "NA" could mean so many thing things though, I try to use at least *somewhat* descriptive @-codes these days. I could also have a 2-char alias for those that
    need/want to use it.

    You could then also have a UA which is users "active", or LI users logged in... (if you delineate a node with a connection vs a node with a logged in user). ...*

    I'm thinking that only nodes with logged-in users are counted. So, not counting
    nodes that are offline or have users registering as new or in the process of logging-in, etc. And web / other server logged-in users would not be counted.
