Postcrossers offline more than a month


Hi,
I have cards travelling to postcrossers, that are offline for more than a month. I'm not quite sure, if my card already arrived at their places or if other problems troubles these postcrossers. But I thought of having a "sign", which shows me a postcrosser in my sent (or receive) list, who is absent for more than a month. Maybe writing this person's nickname in red color instead of blue, or maybe creating a little icon next to the name. Like an angel for those, who are participating frequently and no angel for those who are not participating frequently. What do you think?

I don't know how that would help anything. You have to send a card anyway, and after that you can only wait and maybe send the receiver a message after a while. Icons wouldn't change that, would they? You still wouldn't know if your card has actually arrived or not. And you can easily check if a user has logged in lately just by clicking on their username. I'd rather not have too much unnecessary information, it only clutters up the lists.

I know from another thread and from my brother (a new postcrosser) that postcrossing sends out e-mails to people who are new and don't show up on the site for a long time.

I don't think an icon matters. Some postcrossers are barely visible on the official site but visit the forum quite often. They don't send or receive many officials but do we need to "center them out" with a special icon?
