Im number2? I play that much(approx.)?

what a weird stat...but informative!

Yeah. I'm number 10, it's because I leave CB on my laptop at all times.

i leave my tab open on cb 24 hours a day and haven't logged out since the facebook integration took my logout button away. i am always pretty much on the last page of this stat so i think it measures activity in a different way then we think of activity.

It's not accurate. I have CB up ALL the time, and I don't get credit for the majority of it. Seriously... it's up all day at work and I pull it up and leave it up when I get home as well.

My assumption is that you get credited with a 15 minute session each time you do something on the site within a 15-minute span. If you left the site open, and didn't click it every 15 minutes, you wouldn't be considered active. Same if you were logged in.

No... I burn BA all day long (between clients and calls). I think it requires Java, which I don't have running on my work PC.

It either logs access only when you log out (or leave the browser) at which it tracks either every 15 minute interval you were active during that time, or it counts that as 1 interval. I am pretty sure it only counts on that page when you log in or log out be that opening the page or just closing it not actually logging out. There was a time when I had CB up with no disconnects for over a week and so I wasn't tracked as being active at all over the past week.

yeah, but you are a ninja!

I've always wondered about this stat as well. I never log out from home, but I do usually close my laptop (putting it into standby) when I'm not home. I log in at work during the day, but log out whenever I leave my desk for more than a few minutes. Then there's my phone, another place where I'm always logged on.
