We appreciate your concern.
It is noted and stupid.

Most of it is pretty self explanitory.

If you want to be invisible while browsing the forums, enter your profile (the My Profile link above)... at the bottom of the update screen is an option with wording similar to "Hide from Recent Visitors?"

Just hit yes rather than no. You'll be logged as a guest.

You should also notice that the thing is *NOT* real-time... The list may take around five minutes to update itself. Pounding on it won't make it update any faster.

You can view where a certain person has been in the past time period (currently set to one hour) by viewing their profile. Admins will get a few more goodies.

Holy Pughkeepsie Journal! There are names listed on the front page that I've never seen post here before! It's the Haunting of Flare by the Lurkers!

Seriously, though, this is kinda cool. It's gonna take a while for me to get used to it, however.

Ooh... I had no idea that so many people stopped by Flare in the space of only an hour. Very nice.

That's what I asked when I first started coding the thing. I didn't really see the point in the feature... Everyone else does it in such a way that you can only see who's been online recently, which in itself isn't really all that important.

We threw in a twist - visit the details page. You see a breakdown of where people visited, not just who was there.

That's the point.

After having looked at the details page, I must repeat myself: Ooh...

Charles, I have a request... is it possible to put the "just visted" list underneath the body of the page... cause, when I come here - the first thing I want to see is posts not who has dragged their muddy foot-prints through the forum. Then it's still there if I'm interested - it's just that it's not sticking in your eye at the top of every page. Plus It's more I have to scroll past to get to the meat and potatoes of the board.

Andrew

P.S. I think cable here in Australia might have finally got Trek right - before I go to bed I sit down to relax and catch Deep Space Nine. I get up and have breakfast infront of the Teev and get to watch Voyager! SUBLIME! Saturday evenings is TOS -> TNG -> Voyager -> DS9 -> Babylon 5 -> Starhunter (never really watched it).
