    Was looking at someone's profile and notified they were viewing some PM's.. and that it will actually display the name of the person who sent them a PM.

    Not really sure how I feel about it. I suppose I don't really care that someone knows I sent this person a PM, but.. meh..

    I can see how that would bother some people, if you were reading your mail (real mail) and your nosey neighbor knew who it was from, would that not bother you a little bit?

    Not really a huge deal, but I can see how that would bother some.

    But the shady voyeurism isn't all that nice. Who has this authority? Mods? If it was just admins, I could understand (but still blatant voyerism nonetheless).

    Hard to tell if you can see this stuff because you have slightly elevated rights.

    Anyway, slightly newer version of vBulletin now, but I am pretty sure its working as intended.

    I remember back as a legacy mod you'd get the IP addresses also, not now tho.

    Edit, I get it also.

    Don't think legacy mods exist anymore, think you have to be a mod+ now :D

    admins, and sometimes moderators, can see search queries, error pages, ip addresses, user agent (browser and browser version, operating system and version) and the exact url a member is viewing.

    that's on current vbulletin. not sure about other software :)

    hmmm it could just be the person is viewing his/her inbox though, and not creating/viewing a message yet :)
