Default What does this + before a name mean?

I've seen this sign (+) before a person's name in the list of active users. For instance Moin's name will sometimes show up as mjabbasi+ or just mjabbasi. Always wondered what the + sign indicated.

I think it just means the user is active/online but idle. I think it happens if you just leave a DAC open in another window or tab, or if you close that tab or window without logging out or leaving to another site.

Hmmm...I thought that the + meant that they are in your friends list.

If it meant they were on my friends list, then why would it appear sometimes, and then not another time? .

They're only your friends on certain days. You need more loyal friends.

I guess so, but compare the + with your friend's list. Is it the same or at least similar?

Okay next time I see the + sign missing from my friends showing up, I'll make sure to paste a screen print of it here. Well at least for now the friends theory works

Did you only just see this

Okay this could go down as DAC's official laugh, but I have to explain what happened above.

When I was looking at the online users and noticed just mjabbasi or B773ER I was not signed in And then when I happened to look at the names again I would see mjabbasi+ or B773ER+ it was after I had signed in . So yes the + sign indicates the person is on your friends list, only visible after signing in

Sorry for the confusion with this!!

Same, I also had this discussion with Carlos when I was new. BTW, what happened to Carlos, he isn't on SAF anymore, even!
