Hello,

I was wondering if a feature or timer, to see whether a BrickLink
member is active or has been active (like on FB messenger or WhatsApp), would
be a great idea.

The reason why I'm wondering:
I'm sure there are members who logs in daily to see if another
member has reacted to their order('s invoice)/message, and are nervously
waiting until he/she/they react(s).

It will also be handy to see if a member (who placed an order on your store)
is active on BL and isn't responding to your multiple messages (or just ignoring),
and easier to decide to cancel an order.

For example (my example):
There is a member (USA) who has placed an order on my store (Belgium) a few days
ago. I instantly filled in and sent the invoice to serve him and be able to send
the parcel (after payment) as quickly as possible. But until now, two days later,
he hasn't read the message nor has paid for the order. Now I'm just wondering
if he was active or not lately... cause the hole situation is making me nervous.
I know I should be patient... but I find it kind of weird he responded very quickly
to my last call for buying, and afterwards not responding anymore.

So if you recognize yourself in such a situation, maybe vote 'YES' and
perhaps selling on BL will be more pleasant and more serious. I'm sure there
is a lot of members thinking this way, isn't it?

Kindly greetings,

Yapke

Yes, we used to have the ability to see when a buyer had last logged on. This
feature was just removed last month due to 'privacy' issues. It's
unfortunate as it was a valuable tool for sellers. Hopefully, they find a way
to restore it soon.

What exactly can be considered as active, logged in or not?

Be patient.

If the buyer doesn't respond you should start the NPB-process and complete
it before canceling the order.
