    Is there a way in Adium to check/log when your contacts sign on and off, without having to have a chat window open?

    Trillian has a feature like this as a service status window for each IM service and it's useful. :o

    They don't, as far as I can tell. Hmmm, wonder how hard it would be to create one. :o

    leave the IM window open and timestamps on, and it should tell you when they sign on and off :dunno:

    maybe you can post it on their forums and someone could do it or teach you how to do it.

    Yea, but that's really annoying, because then I have to enable "Show Offline contacts" then open an IM window for those contacts, then disable "Show offline contacts" and to do that all the time is cumbersome.

    Trillian has a great connection status window for each IM service, don't see why Adium can't have a similar one.

    Their chat conversation logs are already worlds better than Trillian.

    And I have good reason for wanting to keep track. :o

    you can probably also set up custom growl notifications on a per-user basis.
