    On GTA forums there's a nice list on the bottom of each thread, that shows what specific users are currently reading the thread.

    I really like this feature, but maybe it would be too cluttered looking for MacRumors.

    Any thoughts?

    You can't get that per thread here, but you can get it per forum at the bottom. If you want to see who's reading what, you can click on a member's profile and it will show you.

    That could potentially cause several speed issues trying to load a list of users on every thread view.

    I feel like this information is fairly pointless. Do we need to know where everyone is at every moment on this site? I don't. What purpose has it served you on the GTA forums other than just knowing?

    I would like this only in the code sharing section. :D For naming and shaming purposes.
