Why do the names in the "Users Online" box in the chat change order all the time even if all users listed stay on?

Oh, that's cos they are just displayed in whatever order the database returns them as. I think it may change depending on who posted last or whatever.

But I'm gonna change it to show them alphabetically.

Not who posted last. We disproved that.
Yeah don't ask me how the database decides to order things, they tend to change the order based on what data it's returning. I thought it might be the user ID, but that wouldn't explain why the order keeps changing, and I would be at the top (or bottom) since I am user #1 in the database.

Anyway, it's all ordered by name now.
