Eh, not quite the same thing. If part of the point is to gain insight into thread interest, knowing who's visited the thread and chosen not to engage is also useful, as it clues you in on things you might want to try in order to increase user engagement. Anyway, not a big deal for me personally, since I'm already using another addon for it that I'm satisfied with, but I don't know why you wouldn't just go ahead and include both options while you were at it.
Are you going to fix this bug? We need an add-on that will work the way you said it works by the time we bought it."Members watching" shows only one member per page. You have to hit "More" continually in order to see them all, one by one.
