    Since the inception of the new format, I have been intrigued by the people who show up under my profile as Recent Visitors. I have no idea who many of them are and often wonder why they decided to explore my profile. Sometimes it is a pleasant surprise, sometimes, not. I'm not comfortable leaving my name in someone else's Recent Visitor list so I will go offline to look.

    Anyone else have thoughts on Recent Visitors to their profile and/or leaving their name in another member's Recent Visitor list?

    Has social anxiety managed to extend to the online realm?
    Personally, I do not give a shit, which is why I do not use stealth or other privacy features, but I'm not that curious about other posters either.

    Its on most sites these days were people have "profiles" personally its one thing i am not paranoid about. You'll get use to it.

    Not like they can see you sitting in your room on the computer now is it!? :tongue:

    It doesn't really bother me. I normally only get profile views after having been in the chat room anyway. I don't know most of the people, and that's okay too. :tongue:

    It doesn't bother me at all although I do wonder what sparked their interest.

    I can certainly understand why you would hold that view.

    I don't think it's any big deal. They could have been interested in a post you made. They could have wanted to a thread you started. They might have wanted to see if you had any friends in common. They might even want to know why a person was banned and why they came back.

    Ditto that for me. I check mine everyday out of curiosity of who's dropped by.

    I do find it kinda cool that I just recently went over 1,000 visits. Of course, then I saw then Mademoiselle had over 10K and got a complex. :laugh2:

    I think that a lot of people gets into profiles by mistake. Instead of clicking on the blue arrow (to go to the last post), they do it on the name.

    I do it many times :tongue:

    As a rule I look at a profile page if someone has written something in a thread that I have found funny, interesting etc...I assume the same for visits to my page...

    Exactly,

    It is almost like finding a fabulous book and then looking to see if you can find any other gems the author has penned that you havent devoured already. Yes it does seem somewhat voyeuristic but in truth it is usually pretty benign...

    Yes. I have some definitive thoughts on Recent Visitors.

    But I think, all things considered, it would be politic that l remain mum about them for the time being.

    Qu'est-ce que tu en penses?

    Don't be so sure there bucko...:cool::wink:

    I like the new format with the visitor page, friends list and the blogs. I find many members very interesting on here. So i often visit many on my friends list and people i am interested in getting to know better. There are some very bright people on here. I look at my recent visitor page as a reminder to keep in touch with the many wonderful people i've become friends with on here.
