Hey. I have no idea if this has been discussed before, but wouldn’t it be better if there would be a “Who’s Online” section somewhere in the forums? Or at least couldn’t there be placed, next to the number of replies, the number of views for every topic. This way we could see how many people have viewed a certain topic.

With over 2 million marketplace members, a ‘who’s online’ is practically infeasible, I’m afraid.. Even when limited to a subsection of the site, like the forums

the who’s online thing with a online badge has been discussed several times… and as far as I can remember it, a lot were against it, including myself. don’t know about others here, but I wouldn’t like people to know when I’m online or not. don’t see the need for it either!

that’s the same as the Gender Badge someone once suggested, it’s just unnecessary!

I wouldn’t want anyone to see when I’m online nor offline, and I don’t think this should be implemented at all, don’t see any advantages here, better focus on improving/adding useful new features the marketplace.

it could be optional, so you could choose you use our status or not. Actually the site should give more possibility to giving support to the buyers.

I hear these things all the time and I always wonder about it, because support is not mandatory, yet everybody is making such a big fuss about it and the tools that should be provided for it… It’s like from all Envato marketplaces, ThemeForest is the only one that matters… On the other hand, we still have a prehistoric version of search interface (apart from 3dOcean, which got it’s search tool upgraded)

(Please don’t get me wrong, it’s not that I’m against the requested support features. I’m always supporting requests to provide useful tools to both authors and buyers, but still, some other things should be prioritized, shouldn’t they?)

On topic: I also wouldn’t like people to know whether I’m online or not. Plus I don’t see why would that be of any relevance.

I’m not agree urbazon. Not only Themeforest where people need support. For example, i have an item where time by time people asking me because of a bug. And now, its became 100% sure the bug is not in the action, but with few version of the Photoshop. Unfortunately i can not post there the solution because it’s weird. But i recognized that, many buyers post there, then i answering to them, but i never see them again. I offering them skype, but maybe they dont have. So how can i help them? Something else, they can only send email through our profile, why they can not send an email right away from the item’s page? If you dont want to give support, thats your choice, problem is i would like to but its not clean-cut for them how to get this support. We should be rated by support as well, for example.

I wish you guys would think outside the box.

Whos online is a great idea, but obiously you dont want to know every bugger thats online…

So limit it to those that you FOLLOW or authors you have purchased from, oh or BOTH

Simple huh, then maybe envato could bleeding fix the who i follow and who follows me code too, which sucks.
