Would it be possible in the individual forums to show somewhere how many users are viewing? So for example in the installation and upgrades forum, where it says

Installation & Upgrades For questions about upgrading and installation of your new Ubuntu OS.at the top of the page could it just have a small bracketed note to say how many users are viewing that forum?

I think that often certain problems could be posted in more than one forum, and whilst dealing with zero reply threads is a way of dealing with this from one side, 'tactical placing' of threads can also help. For me anyway!!

This feature already exist however it has been disabled several month ago i guess for bandwidth save purpose.
Maybe it may be enabled again now, lets see what Ubuntu-Geek thinks about it.

Thanks for the quick reply. And all good, I didn't realise it would be such a hog, so no drama.
