    Just noticed this today. Box in privacy settings for "Show your online status" is unchecked but my avatar has a green triangle showing that I'm online.
    Not a big deal yet might be for some people. Figured you'd want to know. :)

    I noted that also but I wondered if I would always see myself as online but others maybe would not?

    Let me look into this today. That online status checkbox may not control the green triangle. I'll report back later today with an update. Sorry for any confusion this may have caused.

    That appears to be the case. When I'm logged in as me, I can see by the
    green thing that I'm online. When I'm logged off, I can't.

    I was wondering if this might be the issue. Not a big deal to me but if it was my site I'd want someone to let me know. Love MP. :)

    If you do not want the green triangle to show then uncheck "show online status". You can get there by hovering over your username in the upper right corner of your browser. I just wanted to run another test to make sure it was working as designed. If you have the online status unchecked you will still see the green triangle but others will not.

    I've edited the thread to show "Resolved" but also made it a bit more vague in the title so that if people can read through here once they notice the change.

    Thanks all!

    Note however that the UI for the app has a different view. While I will see myself as green when using my laptop, I see a red dot on the app when my privacy settings are set for no visibility.
