    Before when Smogon went down in 2011 for pruning/cleaning up/whatever, you can view the people that were viewing a forum, and who viewed your profile last. However, afterwards, all one can view is who's on the Smogon forums, but not which specific forum unless one goes to their profile. I also liked the ability to see who has been stalking my profile.

    Please consider bringing this back if possible.

    The profile stalking thing was cool when it was back for around 3 hours (?) a few weeks ago. Always liked that feature.

    I also thought the feature was kind of cool. If it isn't too hard to implement again, I'm all for this.

    i've heard that the feature is incredibly server-intensive, which is probably why it's disabled.

    How would it work with people who have hidden/private browsing on? I know some people here have that i think.

    No idea, but it's worked for several years on here (I presume), and it's still working on many other forums.

    The reason it was taken down was because it sped up the forum when we were lagged down so much with the release of BW in Japan and then the U.S.

    IDK if the function is really all that useful except for being a cool extra feature. I'm locking this topic for now since there's no discussion to take place, I or someone else will bring it up with one of the admins, probably mingot or Articuno64.

    It was recently brought back temporarily, and, I assumed, disabled for the same reason it was before.
