Profile / Buddy List Problem (?)

    As everyone here would know, RealJock has a Buddy List feature that lets you add guys, who you consider friends, to a list. Now, in this list, you can see if a person is online, and even allows you to send a mail or IM direct from the list (opening their profile with the 'Send Mail' box or an IM window).

    This is usually accurate, and lets me know if a mutual buddy is online, so I can say hi via IM and have a chat.

    However, for one person, this seems to be broken, and his profile doesn't match what the Buddy List reflects.

    My Buddy List shows him as offline, but his profile shows that he's online, and that I can even send him an IM (an option that isn't there if someone is offline). Refreshing both doesn't change anything.

    This seems to be a glitch, and it's weird that it only ever happens with one person on my list. And it's been this way since I added him to my Buddy List, a long time ago.

    Has anyone besides me had the same issue with anyone else before?

    No.
    Say, send a copy of this to admin.

    Why not delete him from your buddy list, add him again, then see if anything changes.

    I don't think he blocked me. We still chat and get along fine. Also, I don't think blocking on here works that way.

    I suppose I'll bring up the issue with the admin when I have time. I mentioned it here instead, just to see if it was a common problem or not. It's not a big deal, just something curious.

    Also, I think the problem is with his profile, not my Buddy List, since the Buddy List is usually the correct representation of his actual status. His profile is the misrepresentation.

    I see how this seems like I'm reporting a Buddy List error, but it's more about how his profile seems incorrect.

    His 'Last active' status is also displays a date that isn't today, when it says he's actually online.

    That's strange. I haven't seen this particular problem, but I don't check that often. I'd send a message to the admin.

    I have noticed it..!

    And it works opposite also.. it will say someone is online when they aren't..

    If we uncheck 'stay signed in' and log in and then out after we are done..
    it will notify the servers directly of your online status... i do this so people won't send me an im when i'm not logged in.

    Give it time i'm sure they'll fix it soon..

    This is kind of different, if I understand what you're talking about.

    When you close RealJock without signing out, you will remain 'online' for about 4 hours.

    However, in this case, the Buddy List says the guy is offline, but the profile says he's online. Also, if you close RJ and are still 'online' your IM will be switched off, regardless. In this case, it's still on, but only available from the profile, not Buddy List.
