I would’ve asked for this in ATMB, but I’m pretty sure all I would get is a “No. End of discussion.” So I’m putting this here so I can bitch and complain when I do get that response.
This message board is huge. Not the biggest on the internet, but it’s up there. Tens of thousands of members. Used to be pay-to-post. Yet it’s one of the least customizable boards I’ve ever used.
Over the past few months, Jerry and TPTB have been trying new features. Some have stuck (like edit windows and multi-reply), and others have not (like seeing who has viewed your profile). The Administration has basically made decisions for every single user across the board whether we want something or not. Why can’t we decide for ourselves?
I really liked being able to see who was viewing my profile. Others might not have (I’ve heard that people thought it was creepy*… I can’t for the life of me understand why), but I did. So why not allow every user the ability to toggle it on their CP? This all-or-none mentality really handicaps the board. If a feature is available, let US be the ones who decide for ourselves whether we want it or not.
- Some Dopers seem to have an overly inflated sense of self-importance. No offense, but nobody on this board really cares about you enough to want to stalk you. Have you really felt threatened at any point here? Really? Please get over yourselves.
