whosonline would be a great feature so you could see at a glance who was around
I think this is a great idea. It would just be all around helpful.
It is a cool feature but sometimes you don’t want people to know you are online either? As long as you could turn it off?
Who you hiding from @Maureeenie!
The government silly… (Ba ha ha ha)
I like the way you think!
I also agree if we do implement a online indicator please make sure we can disable it.
Following me around would be very boring
Sure , that’s why you want to be incognito!

[/quote] Yikes, I would feel stalked I want lurker mode included
yeah okay it was a creepy request that wasnt thought out very well…
No, not creepy at all. If you read the definition each of these internet behaviors has a purpose. Some people are just shy, other people want to know who is reading their stuff. My only point is each user should have a choice in how they are seen and understand the consequences of turning on and turning off such features.
I think it’s a great idea, it’s nice to see familiar people online that you have spoken to before, you may have a specific question and you know the specific person who will have that specific answer sometimes.
It’s been discussed a lot on the forum software’s site… It doesn’t seem like they would find a presence indicator useful…
The term “lurk” can be traced back to when it was first used during the 14th century. The word referred to someone that would hide in concealment, often for an evil purpose.
That’s me 100%
I also go by about 100 different names on this forum, who’d you think won the last 4 giveaways from heavengifts?
Ha! I love that.
