    User count off?

    It's because some users prefer to be invisible (a control panel option). They're counted in the total, but they won't show up as being online.

    I knew it. I swear I thought it was a legitimate charity!!

    thanks for the explanation Negative... I suppose if I had explored it further I could have found the answer myself.
