Is it possible to make a tag on like the "admin" tag that says online or offline depending if the user is online on one of the wikis in Wikia or not? -- Sam Wang (talk) 12:21, July 16, 2012 (UTC)

They are called User rights icons. You can import them into your js, and make them say whatever you want them to. there is a code, you can copy it and fill it out with your own info. Don't forget to import this into your Js too.- Sonya says, stay fabulous!!! 13:07, July 16, 2012 (UTC)
That's not what I want! -- Sam Wang (talk) 13:13, July 16, 2012 (UTC)
Sorry then, i don't know what to tell you.- Sonya says, stay fabulous!!! 13:21, July 16, 2012 (UTC)
Chat shows if you're online, so, if you Javascript your userpage, can you check it against the Chat module? The Chat module lists the usernames of everyone, so if your username appears there, then it should say ONLINE, if it isn't, it should say OFFLINE. -- 05:17, July 17, 2012 (UTC)
Sam: Do you mean something like this? --Dser (wall | email) 05:46, 7/17/2012
Kind of like that, except using a tag (and perhaps not needing to change it every time when you are online and offline) -- Sam Wang (talk) 20:58, July 17, 2012 (UTC)
I'm not sure if Wikia's servers can tell if someone is online or offline at any given moment. Therefore, creating a tag similar to what you suggest may be a rather difficult, or even impossible task. However, you might be able to use parser functions to make a partially automatic online/offline feature based on times you typically are and aren't online, but it wouldn't be completely accurate and would need to be adjusted during certain parts of the year.
