I was thinking like a ticker down by the area where the members online and joined are displayed at the bottom of home. Is that a stupid idea? Sorry if that is.

IMO that would increase spam posting since people would see the number and want to make it bigger... cool idea though

Probably the person to ask about servers, workstations, old Latitudes, or hard drives

Something like this?:

It's something i did with my own forum system,which is running on Invision Power Board - The predecessor to the Invision community that is being used on the LTT forums.

There is also a counter that counts how many users are online but it's not in the screenshot.

Why?

 

Besides that, the problem with per-day things is that either we show a different value to each person depending on their time zone (which makes it even less useful I think, depending on what use you are imagining from it), or we have to arbitrarily choose a time zone (in which case it's just kinda weird).

Or you can do it like how i did and just display the current number of people online (including guests) and their user names (the number is not in the screenshot but i implemented it).

It's nice to have,nothing necessary.

You can get a grasp of how active are the forums right now,and with the list of active users you can see who is online - Maybe you are looking for someone to talk with and pick a random person from the people online or someone you already know who is online.

 

But i have to note that from my testing the list is as long as the amount of users online so it's recommended to have the option to expand/minimize the list.

What's the harm in showing what's going on? I've seen other large forums have some live data and it's always interesting to see the statistics. User post count and reputation are already public, anyway.

That used to be a thing 😉 

Like 5 years ago, there used to be just a giant list of active users at the bottom then it became a counter at the bottom showing newest user, and number of active users, which there was also a page that lists active users. Allowed you to just straight up filter by mods and then snitch report spam/issues directly to an active mod 😛 

 

Oh wait, the online users page is back? :OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Hmmmmm 🤔

Looking at my signature are we now? Well too bad there's nothing here...

It is preferred that you use the report function.

The time zone problem could be solved by using UTC. sorry this was a dumb idea, I just thought it would be interesting to see that statistic.

That wouldn't really solve it. Instead you could do number of topics in past 24 hours period. But would there be much benefit in knowing how many topics are posted each day?

 

A list of new topics posted in the last day would arguably more useful as you could maybe then find new topics you might be interested in. You can check new topics that have been posted each day by using the activity stream. My Activity Streams - Recent Topics. Then refine by time period to Specified time period - 1 day

I set it up for you for new topics posted in the last day: https://linustechtips.com/discover/678/ Click the "Add to my Streams" button at the top to save it to your activity streams, or you can customise your own activity stream and save it.
