    I have a problem with "currently viewing". You can see everyone's name. Can you choose to view a thread anonymously? Some may want to watch a thread for inappropriate content, or view an auction incognito.

    I think being "invidible" is a benefit for GFM or maybe only for Platinums. However, I can no longer find the page/information that describes the various member levels, the benefits, costs, and payment methods. Did that page get hidden or lost, or am I just overlooking the link?

    We're working on re-creating the GFM / PPM benefits page. For now, going "invisible" is a feature just for PPM's.

    I agree. I think it's "wasted space". How does the currently viewing feature benefit everyone? I don't get it.

    Please, as Kathy said. Remove about 100 things and it will be good.

    Look at whats happening. Members that have been here for years are leaving, just because we 'needed' a new look. :/

    The old BYC had the currently viewing feature as well. It was at the bottom of the index page.

    I think the current one is a little off.

    Right now it says only Imp and MockingJay are viewing.

    A few minutes ago I had 37 people view, but no Imp.
