How about knowing who browsed which threads?

Because big brother is watching.

Well, there's no specific reason. I personally like to know who viewed each thread, I find it as a way to know who's active and who could possible have interest in the topic of the thread.

If we are going for who why not also list the where & when
list their ip address if they're not a user could be interesting to know what locations they're comin from :p
I'm working on an lf2 story that will incorporate my dad's secret legacy ... stay tuned.

Well, actually I believe that Piwik/Matomo is installed on this site and does just that (but for the whole site not each thread—I think), so the admin knows where most traffic comes from already.

I don't know of any plugin that does that for each thread, so BP would have to implement it and I doubt he has time for that. Also it would need some kind of prune system because the database would grow a lot storing all those IP's. But it is a nice idea. :)

"Know" is such a big word, the last time I visited the database I just saw a clunk of additional tables and remembered there was something like that around. Probably broken. Or inaccessible. Or both.


At present activity rates, it's safe to assume that all who have visited the forums at all have at least had a glimpse on the thread (-title, at least). If they read it or not is a different story but the list wouldn't differ significantly from "Who was online in the past week" (or memberlist sort by last visited).


Either way, looks like some unnecessary clutter. For gauging interest in selected threads, you might want to rely on the views-counters instead...

That is not very reassuring. You know what happens with outdated software.

All right.
