- 0 means all users (default)

• LIVENESS (noun)
- the property of being animated; having animal life as distinguished from plant life
I wasn't sure "liveness" was a real word until I looked it up. :)
Pieter's 3rd rule of design: if it does not rapidly make sense to the typical target user, the design is wrong.
I don't think the design is wrong, I just don't like using syntax that's hard to remember. I'd propose calling this something more memorable like lastactivity or activeminutes or activitywithin. And to clarify, a zero value means all users who have had at least some kind of activity on this site like creating/editing a page or making a forum post. A zero value does not simply mean any site member, correct?
I can see where this would be a nice feature for things like a list of contributors (especially when applied to specific pages) or recent contributors to the site in general.
