    I haven't been here in a while and remember some many months ago being able to see who was looking at any given thread(provided they weren't in stealth mode). Is this still possible or has there been a site change? Thanks in advance!

    Nope, ever since the temp was hacked, that feature went byebye when we started using XenForo, we don't have that anymore. But we can find out the views on the thread, which can keep our hopes up saying that someone viewed the thread.

    Yeah the feature was dropped when the switch happened.

    It is far cruder but http://gbatemp.net/online/ might get you somewhere.

    For the most part though it is fairly pointless and though I know you would not do such a thing it seems only marginally more useful than those that would ask an obscure/highly technical question and then double post to say "60 views and no answer".
