My Little Pony: show the date that a user last stopped by on their userpage, right underneath the "Member Since" line. This should be visible only to logged-in Mefites.

Monkeyfilter implements something like this, and I think it'd be a minimally-invasive way to indicate whether a user is still an active participant in the community.

Unless you're an active participant who doesn't check her userpage much. Isn't it just as easy to look at the last time a user made a comment/post?

Oh, NOW I see what you're saying. Disregard the above.

I think it's the last time the user stopped by the site as a whole, indicated on their userpage, not the last time they stopped by their userpage that killdevil is looking for.

Yep, jacquilynne, I'm a little slow on the uptake today. :)

I dunno, some people probably wouldn't want the attention of others following them around.

Just the other day out of curiosity, I checked the database entry for an old big personality here and it turns out they still lurk, checking the site everyday even though they haven't left a comment in years. I could see someone like that no wanting this type of feature. Why not let them lurk in peace?

Date of last comment?
posted by cillit bang at 10:49 AM on January 29, 2006

s'okay, amro, I read it the same way.

And yeah, what cillit bang said -- date of last comment/post seems more reasonably and less stalkerly. Of course, at that point, you could just visit their recent comments and figure it out with a minute's work.

Date of last comment/post would be perfect, and would address the privacy concerns mentioned here.
posted by killdevil at 11:19 AM on January 29, 2006

killdevil, the date is already revealed when clicking on their comment history, I'm not going to add it to the page.

I really don't want anyone to know when I left this comment, mmmkay?

That sounds a litte 1984ish. Don't do that. Let us lurk in peace please.
