Thoughts on a new feature? [Mar. 29th, 2002|06:51 pm]
Paid Members
We've had this idea we've been kicking around for a while, and we thought we'd get some feedback from this community, because if/when we do add it, it will be a paid feature.

Basically we want to introduce individual journal statistics, complete with referral stats and unique page views. This could also include statistics that would show you how many people have linked to a specific journal entry of yours, or who have linked to you in one of their journal entries.

Keeping in mind that we won't:

  • Show you logged in viewers, because of privacy issues that could incur;

  • Show you IP addresses, because they don't reveal any useful information;

What features would you like to see in a LiveJournal stats tracker?

I agree. I have a free stat tracker on my journal now that I use primarily to scan for any 134.173.x.x's (people at the colleges I work for). It's very useful information to me, especially since I can tell by the IP whether they're a student (okay to read my journal), faculty (okay to read my journal) or staff/coworker (stay the fuck away from my journal). So, yeah, not having IP's displayed for privacy reasons is one thing, but I disagree with the statement that they don't reveal any useful information.

I don't get the privacy issue. Like you said you have, there are websites and programs that provide the IP for you, and if you have IP logging enabled in your comments on LJ you can get IP numbers, so what's the difference?

Exactly. Since there's already an IP logging option for comments, I don't see why not to include it in stats.
