I know it's a useless suggestion and serves no actual purpose other than amusement, but it would still be amusing.


I'd love for there to be a log of each user's active time on the forum as a stat on that person's profile. If someone has some free time, it'd be a fun feature to include!

Doesn't really show much about the user... I have the site open in the background almost all the time. It doesn't mean I'm posting, reading, or doing anything on it at all.

It also might be slightly embarrassing. For example, if I logged something like 100 days worth of time. (Which I probably have.) I don't think I'd want a stat like that out in the open.

1) It would have to stop the log after five minutes or so of inactivity, and subtract five minutes.

2) It could be either personal or public. Your choice.



Again, not very feasible, but something to think about.

I think post count, posts-per-day, last active, joined date, etc. are good enough to determine how many times a user has posted. But, then there are those members like me who have been posting much less then before but still reading much of the information that gets posted.

But, by measuring activity/inactivity, does that mean I suddenly become inactive if I take awhile to read a post or if I click a link to somewhere else? I'm still on topic and can potentially contribute to the topic, but by mathematical means of measurement, I become invisible under these conditions.

It's a suggestion. It could be implemented however. It doesn't need to be accurate to the second.

If it's implemented, it's implemented, and Sandy will do it however he wants to do it. If it's not, who cares? It's just a fun idea. No need to nitpick at all the little details of its mechanic.


Wouldn't it be nice? Not for public use, but for personal use.



And yes, there's a simple mechanic by which it could accurately measure to the millisecond how much time you've spent viewing the forum. A very simple one.
