Is there (could there be) a way to find out which Jellys are on an fluther at a particular moment?

Asked by Dr_Lawrence (19651points) July 11th, 2010

It would be nice to be able to check to see who is on fluther when I am. This is after all a sociable, friendly place!

In the chat page, we can see who’s there.

Other than PMing each of our friends to see if they respond, it is currently hard to know who is active on fluther.

Would anyone like such a feature?
Would anybody strongly object to it?

This is technically pretty easy. I have it on my site.

Although, it can never be accurate. I leave the browser open and just leave the room for hours at a time, or have it in the background while working on other things.

It’s been brought up in the past, and most members were against the idea. I don’t think there are any plans to install such a feature any time soon.

I am disappointed. I will get over it, if I have to.

What?? No way.

Fluther is great for the people who choose to be anonymous.
Fluther should also be great for the people who just want to browse and be left alone. Which makes me feel that adding a way to see online users would be an invasion of privacy.

Even though you may use Fluther as a social site, it’s still not.
It’s a question and answer site.
Questions that can solve problems. Part of the reason I’m not a huge fan of the social section. The site became too social.
