Question: if someone has been online for only day or a single month will it display "day/month" instead of "days/months"?

It will display "the sum of all member's time online" on the forumhome and/or leaderboard.

what about an addon where it shows real time of login time say a user logs in today since 6 pm and still is on while the time is 7:30pm and it will say on his profile user is online 1 hour 30 min 20 sec

i dont want a mod that guesses the average time online spent perday i want a mod that tells me about an online user of how long have they been online for today once they log off the time is 0..

any mod like this?

Suggestions:
1. I think you miss in template: iwt_timespentonline_leaderboard the footer: $footer
Works much better with this addition.
In rest is working great, just as it was said before I wish I have it 3 years ago

2. I have also modified phrase Cumulative User Time Online from July 2010 as the calculation begins when you install it.

3. You could add a math script and approximate form user posts an average previous time (before installation of this mod) because it is obvious that many have already forums and users for some time.
Like posts X 2 min or also evaluate form total number of posts (if many) to add additional time as more posts are more you need to read. Just an approximation but can be something.
Good job

4. I don't know if this hides the statistical data of being online if the users is hidden? I suggest to have it hidden (all information) as is obvious that a hidden user don't want other to know how much and when he is online.

It seems statistics in first day is not so accurate but after next day it comes much closer to reality. Average will become real in some days...

Did anyone think a user seeing how much time he spend online he might decide to come not so often?

The stats the first day are spot on accurate, the reason they don't look accurate is that most people expect the numbers to get smaller when divided out, but because you are dividing by less than a whole day, your are actually multiplying.

EX. If I spend 6 hours of the 12 hours its been installed online, then mathematically, you would get that I spend an average of 12 ( (6/12)*24 ) hours online per day. However, after a couple of days, if I have only spent 12 hours online, then you would see that I only spend 6 ( (12/48)*24) hours online each day.

As far as making the users come less often, I haven't heard any cases of that, but I have heard cases of users competing for most time online.

I have already addiction problem on forum. I even created a Detox ban where user is banned for 10 days only upon request so he can take a break
Many thanks, counter is counting and I new the mathematical calculation, just
I think I have a bug affecting calculations on forum. I had users banned on 15 points where automatic ban goes on at 20. Also total time at begging seems a bit off, but this is because of my bug not because of your mod.

Great one, damn if I had this 3 years ago now I had total time more than a century

It would have been great if there is an option for an user to hide he-s time online...
Thanks again for the mod.
