in reply to Other Users List


The idle time to drop off the other users list is set to 3 minutes. But the fact that you do not show immediately after you log in is that when the page is being 'compiled' your "last here" time is the one from the, well, last time you were here, so on the next page hit, that time will reflect the time of your log-in, if it is within the 3 minutes limit, you will show on the Other Users nodelet, if it's not, you will on the next page hit within a 3 minutes time.

He who asks will be a fool for five minutes, but he who doesn't ask will remain a fool for life.

    There's a little more to it then that: the Other Users list is cached -- it's expensive to create (you have to query the entire users table to find those who have done somthing lately), and gets loaded a lot (because it's a default nodelet). Because of this, it's only updated every 5 (?) minutes.
