Not sure if this has been suggested before, but here goes.
What about feature letting Hubbers know if Hubbers that they follow are currently online?
There could be the option to take part in the "Edit Profile" area. I would certainly sign up for it, and would hope that many others would to.
I'd be against that. I like the anonymity of being online here, unlike many other applications where as soon as you log on, someone pops up to say hello.
I come here to work, and pop my head in the forums in quiet or inspirational times. I couldn't concentrate to write if others were 'watching' me.
I agree with Izzy.
I like the fact that no one knows I'm online unless I actually interact with the site (this is shown on the person's profile page, hubtivity.)
Sometimes I come on, look through the forums, write a few hubs and leave them unpublished then disappear again - without worrying that anyone will be upset for not replying to a comment or forum post aimed at me.
Another good point. Thanks WryLit. Um, it is only Sunday night. Did you get your laptop back early? Welcome home!
1. I don't have a laptop I have a desktop. Coz I'm old fashioned like that!
2. I'm a hub nerd. I'm always on here unless I'm asleep or at work. What made you think I wouldn't be here? LoL
I have been haunting the forums, and read about your Hub ban. Did not expect to find you here until tomorrow.
Good to see you, as always.
I'm against it. If you could turn it off like you can on Facebook maybe I would agree with your suggestion.
Several site users here have had issues with online stalking. We don't need more of that.

So I was just wondering how do you do it? I am fairly new...

I am such a champ at procrastination. I am well aware that this online thing takes time, effort, and lots of work. Yet for the past couple of days, I have not been able to get motivated to do anything constructive online. Of course, I've had time to post on the forum's 'last post contest' thread...

We have the option to blacklist certain hubbers from appearing on our hubs as "Others You May Like." Is there a possibility that a similar feature can be added to the forum? There are often contentious exchanges between forum posters that can be distracting for those...

..which has been an interesting discovery for me. They have interesting content and perspectives. But they seldom come upfront. What are your thoughts. No, not yours. I'm asking the interesting people!

For the second time in less than a week, I just spent time opening "questions" that aren't questions, but nonsensical "garbage"--bits of a paragraph copies from somewhere and dumped into HP. In each case, I flagged them for HP, and they will likely disappear soon. But they harm...
