    Waste of space or something you love?

    If you don't think it's useful, what would you like to see it replaced with?

    I like it. It's just one of those subtle things that adds to the website.

    I think it's very useful from a Support Team member's point of view!

    I also like how my name sticks out in purple on it haha.

    I know it gets used a lot in some areas of the site - especially Study Help where people use it to coordinate helping people with their questions. :holmes:

    Puddles the Monkey I like the member's online box but I would like a feature that allows an individual to see who has viewed the forum that day.

    I'm with rayquaza17 in finding it useful as ST, it helps to know who's in a particular forum especially with spam attacks

    And agree with Puddles too, useful in Study Help

    Nooo don't change it! I absolutely love it, it's such a useful tool. For example when I'm in one of the forums specifically and I need to grab hold of someone, I'd check for their username in that little box as a first step to finding out if they're online or at least in that forum.

    No way, it's one of the little details I love about TSR :yep:

    It helped us discover spies in private sub-forums. Definitely like it.

    It's a useful feature and I would prefer that it remains.

    Absolutely useless to 99% of the population. I'd recommend replacing it with a "See who's browsing this forum" link to maintain the functionality for those that give a ****.

    It's at the bottom of every forum page (eg http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/forumdisplay.php?f=5 for this forum) or there's a link to the overall site on in the blue footer of every page: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/users_online.php
