Some forum sites show how may members are online (With their names). Why not TP?

I LIKE this idea, very much! Sam, Pete, Sander? Is this possible?

Actually, our stats program that tracks this hasn't been put over to the new server by the host yet so I can't currently see users online.... but on average it's over 300, and I have seen it over 600 at times. It's probably wise to note that when you look at a forum and it shows the 'most ever online', that this usually includes search engine bots. If you have a big site and google comes along, it can add several hundred 'users' in one go. Different sites track this differently but I've seen it on other sites done this way and it's a bit dodgy if you ask me...

One thing to keep in mind though is that the forums are just a 'small' part of Travellerspoint. Although they are clearly actively used, if this was a forum only site, the 5% rule would probably hold up. There are a ton of users though that sign up for unrelated reasons (lost friends, diaries, travel help etc.) and never post so that will mean the percentage will be different on TP since it's not just another travel forum site.

This also means that if there are 600 members online, only 100 might actually be on a forum page... although it is more likely to be along the lines of half the current visitors at any time!
