Its cool this site lets you know who's online, but some forums let you see who's on each forum, reading a particular thread, and even who's typing up a post or reply.

Would it be possible to do that here?

But then everybody could avoid me quite easily.  Just kidding.(?)  Sounds like a good idea, but I don't know how much work would be required to pull that off.

Re: member activity

I do, and I personally think it's more trouble than it's worth. But, it's not my forum.

Re: member activity

I know nothing about this kind of thing, so this is just guesswork, but I think that whether or not it can be done depends on the type of forum you are on. This is a PunBB forum, and I'd guess that the forum that mikau was talking about is an Invision Power Board or something.

But if it is possible to do, it would be a cool thing to have.

Re: member activity

I can search for any "mod"s like that, and tell you what I find.

Re: member activity

I found these "mod"s:

"PunOnline 1.2.1" - Adds a list of where the users are on your site. (people reported bugs with this mod)
"Users online today 1.0.1" - allow you to display a list of the registered users who was online during the day.
"Activity Barometer 2.0" - Shows the "flux" of posts per hour or number of posts during a day or a week.
"Easy Poll" - Adds polls to PunBB
"Reputation System 1.0.1" - Allows users to give reputation points to other users.

Opinions, please, everyone!

Re: member activity

"Easy Poll" and "Reputation System 1.0.1" should be fun!

"PunOnline 1.2.1" (without bugs), "Users online today 1.0.1", and
"Activity Barometer 2.0" seem good too. smile

You mean, where we rate other users? Hmm... that is interesting. I wonder whether that one would be helpful and useful or fight-provoking here? smile

Other than that, they all sound good, I don't really mind which ones.

Re: member activity

As justlooking says, if everyone is allowed to rate other users, then that could cause fights. Plus it would essentially just be a popularity contest. Some forums have that feature, but the points are only able to be rewarded by admins, and that might work better, although it could just as easily mean that people would go "HaY RoD GiVe MeH pnts plz lol thx roflol dizzy swear."

Polls would be a great addition, though. I'm not sure how useful the 'users online today' would be, but the activity barometer would be quite interesting.

And as I said before, the PunOnline thing would be very useful. So would PM's, but we've had that conversation before.
