    Look over his shoulder as he surfs the internet.

    There's no real way to know. RHP has a green dot by your name if you've been on within the last ten minutes, but it's a general indication, it's not up to the minute. On top of that, users can turn it off, too, so really, there's no real way to know for sure.

    if the last name is between A - G or P - X

    and if the second letter is a vowel

    and if the last letter is an H, T, S, or W

    and if the total number of letters is less than 6 or more than 12

    and if the letter count in the name is divisible by 2, 3 or 5 with an interger as the result

    then (and this is absolutely true and not a joke)

    here it is

    the truth

    you cannot tell

    Ask them, if they don't answer, chances are they are online. If they do answer they are crazy.

    Three choices, cash: online or offline or out of line.

    Actually the dot also comes on if a conditional move was triggered, so you can't even say with the dot on...

    bigerjim, other than the "Green Dot" how does Chess.com compare overall with Red Hot Pawn game features and forums?

    GrampyBobby , somehow I see visions in my mind that you are holding a microphone in your hand like a news reporter working for fox news and trying to get a scoop. Then i see people running away trying to hide their face from the camera. Is that intentional?

    I sometimes have an overactive imagination.

    Fox news reporters rarely get it right the first time Bob. In fact it's rare they ever get it right at all. Hang in there and polish up your mic.
