Huli, with the forum’s software update, there’s a bug that shows everyone logged in anonymously. That’s what the asterisk means. Currently I see 3 anonymous users, so I’m guessing it’s me, you, and someone else. Alex has been notified of the bug (among others) and has checked into it, but it seems to be a problem with Expression Engine (the server for the forum) and so far there doesn’t seem to be any fix for it. Alex says other people (from other groups) have complained about the same thing, so he says it looks like we’ll just have to bear with it until it gets fixed in a future software update.
I agree, though, it does seem very lonely in here.
