You can tell a user’s status by the colour of the ring around their avatar. Yack.net will display one of three status indicators for every user.
- A green ring indicates that the user is online, logged into Yack.net and ready to chat.
- An orange ring indicates that the user has set their own status to “busy” and may choose not to respond to posts and nudges.
- A red ring indicates that the user is not online or is logged out of Yack.net. This status can also be selected by the user so that they appear as offline to other users.
All three are global statuses and will be shown for all the yacks to which the user belongs.
