How many people are running nodes 24/7 ? Is there a way to tell the uptime of other nodes?

BM is decentralized and distributed. Uptime does not matter. Try this service: https://uptimerobot.com/

I can't keep mine up 24/7 as it eventually fills all RAM overnight and crashes

Version 0.6 treats memory way better.

I run one node. Uualy i need to restart it like every 14-20days I'm not sure with v0.6 cause it looks like treating memory way better.

I had been running a 24/7 hidden service node before the asyncore mods. Asyncore caused some problems but I was able to resolve those recently. It was just a borked keys.dat file. BTW I ran onionscan on my .onion address and found some security holes. I advise using onionscan for hidden services just to be sure.

Let me know what problems you're having (or had), I want to fix all the critical issues before 0.6.3. Regarding the onion addresses, I tested it previously on my ubuntu systems and only the port listed in the tor config was reachable. So just make sure you only list the PyBitmessage port and you should be fine. But making an extra check with onionscan can't hurt. Peter Surda Bitmessage core developer

I was running an apache web server on the same address just for lulz which I know is a security problem. I had mod_status enabled (apparently by default) which is really bad. I turned that off. I think there's a problem in the wiki about running as a hidden service: https://bitmessage.org/wiki/FAQ#How_do_I_setup_Bitmessage_as_a_hidden_service_on_Tor In the cell for "Incoming connections only through Tor"/"Outgoing connections over Tor" I believe sockslisten should be true, not false as stated in the wiki. I tried it both ways but could only connect outgoing with sockslisten = true. Anyway it's set to true now and everything is working as expected. All incoming connections are through my .onion address, all outgoing connections are via Tor.

Thanks for the report, I opened a ticket and will review it. Peter Surda Bitmessage core developer
