    The text in the statistics section of the Lounge Lobby still says "... active in the past 10 minutes", but I get the impression that both the "last click" and "member name" links now display users active within the last minute only:

    I'm seeing the last 4-5 minutes - perhaps something was flushed?

    So am I.

    Perhaps this is connected with a potential overload if we have >500 online.

    Whether this will be (remembered to be) reviewed now that we've moved to a virtual server cluster is a separate question.

    It looks like the list gets flushed periodically. It was growing again, then a few minutes ago I got this:

    This of course reduces the usefullnes of the online users lists.

    Getting rid of the 'guests' from showing might alleviate that - I can't really see the point in trying to see who is the 501st person online anyway, and when you scroll from page to page, the list appears to be updated in real time. (A user can appear in more than one page as their 'timed status' has changed in the time it takes to change pages.)

    Yep - the list does get flushed from time to time. At one point we had 218 online, and a few seconds later 6. It seems unlikely that 212 people leave the Lounge simultaneously.

    And a few minutes ago, equally unlikely, we seemed to have over a hundred guests, all viewing the 'Lounge Lobby'...

    The current display has become pretty useless: the numbers and names vary wildly from second to second.

    I'd prefer the old functionality to be restored (but it would be fine with me if guests were omitted, as suggested by Leif).
    If that is not possible because of the enhanced performance of the new servers, the online list might as well be removed entirely.

    Just now the Lounge was deserted:

    Tapping the F5 function key, refresh, in Firefox seems to add 1 to the count every second-F5 tap.
    At 5:40a.m. EST I watched the numbers rise from 60 to 128 in about 60 seconds.
