I was thinking about it, there really wasn't a need for it.
If you're not invisible, somebody can go right to your profile and see if you're online, and if you are, it shows what thread you're viewing, so I don't really see what the purpose was of them adding that anyways...
this is more of a generalized thing... like "oh so x people are viewing my thread"
what you're talking about is more of a specific thing, like "oh... so username is looking at x thread..."
maybe they added it because people want to see who is viewing what
maybe their ulterior motive is to use it as an intimidation factor. "oh no mod123 is looking at this thread, let's stop being bad" lol.
but... it might cause problems because like stated before, multi-taskers will be called creepy if they accidentally stay on a thread so it seems like they are constantly watching x thread.
and people might get angry and yell at someone for looking @ their thread but not posting.
again... invisibility is an option but just not something people have considered before because it is sometimes helpful being online (friends would know, mods to be on for questions and stuff....)
there are too many things to consider on both ends.
while its cool to see who is looking at your thread or ge or whatnot...
it might force everyone/ a lot more people into invisible because some people like looking at threads but they don't want to be named for whatever reason.
if one does stay online (^), it shows who is viewing a thread.
for example monkeecj was at the gedct just reading posts i guess
yet he was online so everyone there saw he was online
someone is bound to be creepy and say HI THERE!
(i did xD but i was proving the point of...) people might not want to be addressed while viewing a thread.
go invisible you say? its sometimes nice to see who is online... for mods/staff members especially because then you can PM them a question/problem. or if you want to see if your friends are online to talk, being online would be good.
also, i am sure everyone is aware that if one is online you can see what they are doing by going to their profile, which is the same. not really, because if you go on their profile, that's creepy because you are like... singling out one person to see what they are doing. this, everyone there is out there in the open, so you can find out easier, which is weird.
