Could we see how many people are forum members, and maybe how many are currently online?

I think it would enhance the sense of community. Possible?

You can see the user count buried in the menus: currently 4316.

It doesn’t show who is online though.

Wow! We have shot up to 5,408 members! Must be that invite tucked into the backer survey.

Update: 7,403 now! I love it!

Discourse has a “who’s online” plugin that would address this; depending on how you have the forum hosted, it could be anywhere from trivial to impossible to add it to this instance.

But to see how many users there are, just go to:

I run a couple of Discourse forums myself, so know a few of the tricks.

If we have proven anything during the KS campaign, it is that MSTies love watching numbers go up! :grin:

Almost 2k new members in about a day… We don’t just need a counter, we need a separate website with analytics. A count-traq of some sort.

It can’t keep going at that pace, can it?

There were what? 38,000 KS pledgers? I’d say we’d be good with about half of those joining the forum.

19,000 would be quite a community!
