Who's online image

I see a lot of us seem to be interested in what the others are doing...

Re: Who's online image

Made me wonder... could curiosity in what the other guy is doing be the cause of civilization to be where it is today?

What if no one is interested in what the other guy is doing? Would be still be where we are? Won't we still be running around naked plucking fruits of the trees? Oh, how wonderful that would have been I definitely would love to see some of today's people run around naked plucking fruits of trees... wow, what a sight... but... but... but that would be the cause of civilization... and I would be right where I am today

just random thoughts on seeing who's online...

Hence, I thought I will look for such users and weed them out. We dont need users who are consistently here for just taking the contributions of our regular members and not returning anything.

Re: Who's online image

Another thing regarding guests.....lot of ppl don't sign in due to the fact that 'who's online' thread shows exactly what that person is doing....is there no way of giving the user a choice whether or not to show their activity on forum? Perhaps that would encourage more people to start signing in and hence start writing in too? Perhaps deactivate this evil like it was discussed in another thread

Infact many folks who run boards had asked for this feature on vBulletin forums and hence its implemented. I dont know why people are afraid to let others know what they are doing here. They readily give up their IP address to be recorded here, but are afraid of letting others see them viewing what they are viewing??

Re: Who's online image

This thread is going entirely the wrong way than what I had started it for

Is curiosity the father of civilization? If yes, then you guys/gals against who's online's public access are wrong It should be public so that we all know what the other is doing. In fact, it is one way that I get to read some interesting old threads

If no, then we need to discuss

Re: Who's online image

charchu the reason I am saying so which some members might be afraid to speak up abt is that everyone has their online image, seeing who's doing what adds to this mental picture of each person like db gangsta, tantu the sadhu and something for everyone!! samajh rahe ho main kya keh raha hoon? Anyways just a thought

Re: Who's online image

yes, i too think that this feature is unduly intrusive. the ip address is one thing. it does not go to the public domain but to let everyone, including guests, see what one is upto on the board at any given time is intrusive. if possible that feature should be disabled.

the admin can keep it on for himself if it is strictly necessary but it should not be open to all.

Re: Who's online image

People stop being so goddamn touchy feely and worked up. Even before version 3.x of vBulletin we had this feature. Just that no one cared to look who was doing what. The feature was definitely there! Now you want me to disable this. What next? Dont show that you are logged in on the first page or the forum homepage???

Or how about all of you changing yoru settings to always log in as invisible! Then you dont have to worry to let anyone know you are here! Also no need to communciate with each other as no one can see anyone logged in. So we dont need the PM system. Great.. I can save on server disk space!!

Great going... Okay .. what should I disable or remove next??? Hmm... How about I remove the user profile page also.. so registered users cannot see your profle??? Wow.. sounds so good..

Hmm. next??... I think I should even disable Search because imagine you search for a thread by some username and then you will see that the user has commented on so many topics... What an invasion of privacy that would be!!!


Please let me know and I will start with the cuts and disabling!!

Re: Who's online image

I agree with you cha pai, on this one... I use the who's online window very often, not to spy on somebody but just to see whether there is any popular or odd site that people are currently browsing.

Well, here's what happens... I open up echarcha... and guess what? no new posts... what do I do?... no echarcha... no life... I feel depressed ... see some people are logged on... not really friends with anybody to start pm ... feeling very lonely ... next option, go to who's online... find this interesting sounding thread someone is reading... go to it myself... suddenly life does not seem to bad

See, it is a very important link of echarcha... brightens up the day on lonely boring days... please do not remove it under any pressure...

This feature was always there even in versions 2.x of the vBulletin software and enabled for registered users and no one complained. Now all of a sudden people complain???
