A while ago the function Special:Contributions/newbies was aded and I think its
a realy great function. And the same mecanism I think can be used for users to
fins admins that are active/online at the moment. So maybe add
Well, this would use a different approach, since listing online admins is more
dynamical than a plain newbie list.

I did mean that that should be determied by if they had edited.

> Define "online".
As I think, this function shows resent edits made by admins in the same way as
Special:Contributions/newbies shows edits newly made by newbies. When taking
part of this information a user can use that information to decised wich admin
to contact in maybe a sertain hasty matter.
Ok, I would've written the explanation but the damn midair collision... Anyway,
I think that it would be better to see people who are online and browsing the
site at the moment and not just a static list of admins that have edited
recently. This can be seen on most forums, including phpBB.
Then we would need a new option on preferences: 'Hide my online status.'
Users don't *have* a per-session online status that we can pull up like that.

I just want to make clear that I wasnt interested in
such a thing. I did want to find active admins, not
logged in ones.
