    No, the online marker is the green on the top left side of your avatar. :)

    Well, honestly there is this little thingy called a mouse pointer. Lots of times when you place it over an icon like that it shows these amazing things called letters, that when combined together make words. ;)

    Uhhh.. doesn't the phrase " little thingy called a mouse pointer" lead one to believe that one would have to have an attached mouse (or trackpad) to generate said mouse pointer? :p
    AFAIK I've never seen a mouse pointer on a mobile device - of course, it's been a while since I've fired up any of my Android devices since they are several years old.

    Fair enough :p

    But assuming the user is on a computer with a mouse is probably going to be more and more rare.

    (User could pay someone to do all the uploading and installing....)

    Then odds are they wouldn't be here asking XenForo specific stuff. ;)
    That would be the people that do the uploading/installing as frequently those that pay others to do that type of activity (uploading/installing) also don't want to administer the forum itself but have others do it since uploading/installing is by far one of the easiest things of XenForo "administration" there is.

    Not likely, chances of anyone dying from distracted driving using their desk top are few and far. LOL

    Are there now any visual benefits to verifying my license?

    You will have a blue dot telling others you are verified.

    Especially on the dark theme where it appears to be so subtle it looks invisible ;)

    You only see it when you have verified your license.

    So you have to verify your licence before you can see anyone else that has verified theirs?
