Online People Counter on myLot

One feature that I am missing at myLot is a people counter. I would love to have a little counter that could tell me how many people are online at the moment. And, if not much, saying where people are from. This would help us to see how many people we have here to interact with and to see when we have dead hours. Also, it would be lovely to find out where people are from easier. I mean, I have seen a lot of people from different countries, but I haven't seen anyone from Portugal. It would be interesting to know if there is anyone here on myLot from my country. Would you like to see how many people are on myLot at the moment?

We had something like this in the old interface. Not a counter telling how many people were online, but a repartition of members by country. A few French were members, but I never saw more than 2 or 3 active. And never a Portuguese, except you : you are unique, we don't want you to spend the day at exchanging PMs in your language.

@fufurinha @topffer Yeah, I was getting ready to mention the old user link. topffer knows, but you don't that it not only used to show users from countries, but would also break down and tell you if there were other users in your own town as well. It was rather handy.

You know you are right. You are the only friend i have from Portugal...I never realizes that till now...There are many people here from USA and Texas alone but i know the hours most are here and away...Time changes from Countries hours ahead and who might be night owls. yes it would be nice to have an idea of when but maybe it would also show when we are looking at someone's page to see stuff they are doing and they might think we are spying on them??

The posts will wait for you irrespective of when you will access them. It is difficult to be there at the time when your connections are there. Atleast for me it is difficult as the time zone factor plays a big role.

That's what I thought too, I log on and off at my convenience. Having the counter would be nice but I don't think that would change my activity pattern on the site.

I like this idea, but as Anja says, it could be misleading. And why does it say on everyone's profile 'last seen 0 hours ago'?

It doesn't say that on every profile. It just shows that when you are online.

It might be nice if it showed next to our names if we were online or not, but since I leave all my sites open even when I am not on them, the count would be off. I imagine others do that sometimes, too.

Yep, mine would show me online from noon to 8 PM since the computer is on and logged in here, but I am only actually here part of the time

It shows on your profile when was the last time you logged in. That can help.

I think it would show I am here but I could be on FB or another site. It would just show who is logged in here. I like the numbers at the right that show when the post went up. I like that. I see the country most are from on their profile page.

Maybe you should invite your family or friends that are from Portugal here in this site. All of you will enjoy your time here while you earn extra money. knowing who are online is a good feature that way we will know who are inactive and will interact more. That would be a great feature that will greatly help us

It would be nice and helpful to have that feature on the website. But I probably wouldn't depend too much on the counter anyway since I'd still post/respond/comment whenever I'm on regardless of who and how many people are online.

The idea is quite good, no doubt about that. Unfortunately, I will not be interested in that feature, though. It will kill all much of fun. I mean come to think of it - if I know, I you are not online, I know, my response to this discussion will not be done right now. That may well become a reason for me to skip responding to this discussion and move on to another that has people online. And you know, how forgetful we all are, quite likely, I will forget all about this discussion by the time you appear online. Edit: Reading the other responses, I realized - I think almost weird.
