I was wondering whether adding a "number of members viewing" count to a forum title involves alot of trouble...

(for example, such as found on these forums -

General Science & Technology (5 Viewing)

Science & Society (2 Viewing)
scientific ethics, social responsibility

Earth Science (4 Viewing)
environment, climate, geology


I'd like to see that on ATS but im not sure if there is a reason why this is not already included?
What do you lot think?

i think it is better llike the way it is now...

for exaple:

if i wanted to post in the Earth Science forum i would not be limited to enviroment, climate,geology, etc...

I think the idea is that you can see how many people are veiwing a particular forum or thread, not to change the subjects themselves.

Could help gage which threads are worth going to, although the number of views does the same but it's historic rather than real time.

Would be a nice addition, but don't think it would add any great improvement to the site, might be a load of work not worth doing?

Although this is defintily SO's area I know he simplified the who's online stats because they were putting too much of a load on the server.

So now intstead of seeing guests and members, we only see members.

I would imagine that showing the viewers on each forum would further increase the load on the server again.
