Comment (by boonebgorges):

 tomlandon_author - Thanks for the suggestions. The limiting factor here is
 that we don't really have any reliable indicator that tells us whether
 someone is *actually* online. The only thing we have is their last_active
 value, which is updated every 5 minutes.

 One consequence is that if you switch the "who's online" query to look for
 users whose last_active is less than 5 minutes ago, you'll miss a lot of
 members who are legitimately active. Take the following situation:

 10:15 - Boone logs in. Last activity set to 10:15. Boone keeps browsing,
 but last_active is not bumped
 10:17 - Tom logs in and sees the Who's Online widget. If it's set to look
 at users who have been recorded as active within the last 5 seconds, Boone
 will *not* show up.
 10:20 - Boone continues browsing, and last_active is bumped

 > Question: Where can i change the time value (5 minutes = 300000
 milliseconds) for the reload? Will it do the reload "inside" the widget
 (example: AJAX/JS or equal) or do i have to reload the page?

 Filter 'bp_user_query_online_interval', line 250
