Total Time Spent Online

A few weeks back I posted about our 'posting activity by time' and got some interesting replies...
But now I am wondering how the 'Total Time Spent Online' is calculated.
Currently my stats show that I have been online for 58 days, 19 hours and 20 minutes.
As I have the option to remain logged in set and almost always have at least one page opened most of the time I am surprised that the figure isn''t much higher than 58 days.

Re: Total Time Spent Online

mav, someone explained this to me.  the time relates to the active interaction you have with the forum, not to the time logged in.

Re: Total Time Spent Online

If you look at the foot of the main index page it shows users who have been active in the last 15 minutes - I suspect the same idea is used when calculating your time online.

I wonder what is meant by active interaction?

My profile shows I've been on line 43 days, 13 hours and 12 minutes.  Don't know what this figure relates to as I've been away for 34 days of that time with the PC off Undecided Undecided

Re: Total Time Spent Online

It's the cumulative time online since Sun 12-08-2007, 15:31:57 (when you registered).
