Now, I know I just made a TTT suggestion, but this one just came to mind, as I've seen it on other forums.

Basically, you should make it so the people who are currently viewing a thread show up at the bottom of any thread.
Ill share an example.

This would be a great feature for the forums!
Thank you for viewing.

Feel free to share your opinions. :)

I've seen this on a lot of other forums I use or have used. Both actual names and just the number of people viewing the thread.
I don't really know what benefit there is to having that feature, could you explain for the idiots among us?

Mostly, I want this because I genuinely just like seeing who is viewing my threads, it makes me more confident in the well being of the thread itself. Like, There is no benefit, but it would be very nice to see what people are interested in at the time.

I could see this being a neat feature. Not sure if it would be worth taking development time away from other areas though. If it were as simple as changing a setting in Xenforo then I'd be all for it.

I don't know about that one. It requires adding at least one or two more database queries to thread views, and for no real benefit other than a "good feeling". Doesn't seem like a worthy trade-off.
