    The "Recent Visitors"

    Hey there,

    Is the "Recent Visitors" thing in the profile broke? I just noticed it seems this way :)

    What is wrong about it?

    Well it looks like it doesn't update the visitors. I've been noticing that while the amount of visitors go up, the names doesn't change.

    PS: And I'm always curious about who visits ^^

    This is a simple brain teaser that you should be able to solve on your own :tongue:

    Could be that stats are not updated in the real time, but it doesn't mean what you see is wrong.

    If it's the same people visiting your page over and over your view count will go up, but it only shows each visitor's name once.

    Got stalkers? :eek:

    I prefer to see them as fans :biggrin:

    However I just realized that it actually works! What about "guests", people with no account. Do they count also?

    Yes they are your fans :)

    Guest impressions do not count.

    Invisible visitors are another possibility.

    Just tested it, and they do count (unless 4 members visited my profile exactly in sync with my page reloads :p).

    Interesting, thanks for the test
