Curious if SP has a plugin for fake users or members logged in(active)?

Been reading up on ideas to help get more members and noticed many advise fake users to look active..

 

Good practice? Bad idea? Does SP even have a plugin or custom code for this ?

 

Thanks

I hear others have plugin that shows certain number of users are online/active but nobody is on....it's suppose to show visitors forum is active... hence fake/made up users or whatever we label it...

No we don't offer any such facility.
