What would be great is to jazz up the activity stream widget where your tech script writer make it possible to configure that module to show all visitor activity on the site (even those of bots). There should be a functionality to limit the activity stream to just what members do when logged in, or also include visitors hanging out on the site & what they do on the site, (even if it's a bot) showing the page the visitor is on whether there's a click or impression. An external widget like Feedjit does this already only showing actual live persons on the site, IP & location & geo map, but we should have our own built in hoop.la version, one especially that would pick up bots as well. So when a prospect views a particular community, he or she will see how active it is.
P.S. - I just saw this old 2011 convo - https://hey.crowdstack.com/s...9#193392314111576609
What I also suggest is another functionality enabling an Admin to turn on or off comments/replies on the activity stream. A particular community that is small or slow may need to make their site look busy> I can see a much larger community turning off the feature though.
