This question already has an answer here:
- Show OPs if someone is answering, live 2 answers
Will Stack Overflow ever implement a feature that allows users to see if someone is actively answering their question? I feel like this feature would help make the site feel more active and give users a reason to wait for an answer longer if they see someone is in the middle of composing a long response.
Quora has this feature, and when I see someone is in the middle of answering my question I tend to stay on the site longer to wait for their response.
