A seller recently had posted that he doesn´t show as online and that only few sellers in his category did.
Same for me, I don´t show as online (never; not sometimes yes, sometimes no but never, every time I checked) when I definitely am, since I started checking because of that post,
and in my subcategory I now can see often just 1, 2 or 3, a maximum of 5-8 gigs showing (often, some of these belong to the same sellers too, so it´s even fewer sellers than gigs) with the “Show Online Sellers” filter.
Right now, only 1 gig/seller (from 746) shows online for my language pair, that seems very improbable, also, well, here I am, online and logged in, and don´t show, so it´s not just improbable but definitely not correct.
If I´d show when I´m online, okay, I´d say maybe there actually, for whatever weird reason are only so few sellers online from the many who exist, but since I´m not and it is really very few compared to some time ago, to me it looks rather possible that others, like me, aren´t showing online either, even though they are.
I´ve sent a ticket to CS already (and yes, I did lots of cache clearings etc. and I checked with anonymous not logged in and different browsers) but thought I´d post here in case some of you want to check for yourselves. Don´t forget that it may take a while after logging in to show as online, so give it half an hour or so before you check and good luck, hope you are showing fine.
Note that I´m talking about the “Show Online Sellers” filter, not about the new “Available Now” beta feature.
