Yawn! Happy new year and stuff
So once a year Rupi wakes from slumber and does something.
A while ago Tofu added a lil api to the server to get online user info. I just implemented it on the forum using a very old concept for another thing. You can hover over a character and see all his info (level, room and stuff like that).
Those character gifs were commisioned by me a few years ago, so thats why you haven't seen them anywhere else yet.
If you want to do yourselves a lil app/widget or something there's a json endpoint that gets the info (not realtime, cached around every 20-30secs) /get_online.php
so feel free to use it
