GAOA alerts the user to when a guild applicant is online through status messages posted in chat. The "Requests" tab in the default GuildUI is also updated to reflect the number of online applicants and status icons are added next to each applicant to show their online status. For consistency, the status icons are the same used by the default Friend List. A grey dot means offline, a green dot means online, and the away mark (orange timeclock) means their status is being checked.
-There have been reports of "player not currently playing" messages randomly sneaking past the error trap meant to detect and use these messages for determining online status.
