This one was an essential feature in the old vB forums. It was nice to see and to know who was watching right now a thread. People who are used to this in vB forums will miss it in XF forums. But not anymore, thanks to Xon. Thank you.
Thank you for this free XF2 version, I used the RainDD version for XF1 before. Xon is one of the most trustworthy XF developers, all his addons can be installed blindly, as everyone knows: it will work and it is safe.
Additionally, thread/forum views are tracked in 15 minute windows and do not live-update as these values change. Any view counts should be considered an estimate.
