Maybe we could update the function that the lesson page shows that youre practising it, by adding a button. Because it now says I'm practising about 70 % of all the Gmc lessons, just because I watched the video! biggrin.gif

Maybe I am wrong but there are two reasons for someone to be visible in the "practicing members":
1. when You are watching the lesson, You are in the Practicing Members, something like members viewing the topic on the forum. So You will always see Yourself as "practicing now".

2. when someone bookmarks a lesson, he will be in the "practicing members" no matter if he is watching the lesson now or not.

I don`t get what`s wrong with that. Just don`t run around lessons, stop and learn.
But bookmarking issue IS kinda strange.

This is a good system I think. It could be improved perhaps to some small degree by having a 'practice' button, but really only in the case of when you finish practicing a lesson, and then can press the button to actually remove yourself from the list. But I think a better way of doing this would be to post the lesson in the REC forum when you complete it, then remove it from your bookmarks. If you're worried about your name showing up under practicing members after you've completed it tongue.gif Personally I have a 'completed' sub folder in my bookmarks that I put lessons into when I finish them.

However, to solve the original issue, could be as simple as renaming the 'practicing members' list to 'watching/practicing members' or something.

I think that "watching/bookmarking members" would be easiest way of solving "the problem". Any practice button would need people to actually think about it and remember to remove themselves from it, and I don't see a reason good enough to organize such thing.

Agreed, it would just complicate things. I think I confused myself just writing my last post.

I think this feature is working well as it is smile.gif Though some statistics as time watching individual lesson or something would be cool smile.gif
