I just thought of an idea to see how many people have read your post. It wouldn't include usernames, just a number. For example, let's say you made a post on the Creative Writing board. I'm sure you would want to see how many people read your story, and same goes for Site Suggestions.You would want to know how many people took the time to read it. It would be something that kind of looks like a [R: 10] i the corner of the post box. R stands for Read, and 10 is an example of how many people read it. It doesn't have to look like that at all, it's just from my perspective.

In consideration of this idea, maybe it would be wise to consider first that perhaps some people would have their feelings hurt in some way or another.. Ultimately though I don't think it would be too big a deal. ACC already has its own delivered/read system in private threads, after all.

Are you imagining this would work for the first post of a thread and not individual posts? With my limited knowledge of coding, it seems to me like programming a thread to recognize when a user has read/scrolled past a post would be tad difficult and potentially inaccurate. Let me know if I'm wrong, though.

Good idea, though, and I definitely see its use on boards such as the Creative Writing board!

Okay. I didn't realize that some users feelings would be hurt . And what do you mean that there's already a system like this in PT's? I've never seen it.

That was what I was thinking about, to see it on the first post or on the thread overall. I hope it wouldn't be too hard to program, although I have no knowledge of programming whatsoever so I don't know what's impossible and what's not.

"I've never seen it."
When you hover over usernames in private threads, you can see the date and time they read the last post. It only applies for when they see new/unseen posts, though, not if they're revisiting the thread. I realize now that might not be too obvious nor have I seen it publicized anywhere.

Oh. I guess I've never seen it because I'm always using my tablet.

Thanks for pointing that out, actually - something to bring up to the Devs regarding ACC 2.0.
