[FEATURE] Allow us to see who visited our Profile page

Recommended Posts

Allow cachers to see who is visiting our Profile page, specifically who is clicking on the "All Geocache Finds" link. It would be similar to PM caches where the CO gets an audited list of who visited the cache listing.

 

This request is tied to the requests for more privacy features:

Currently to get a detailed chronological list of caches that a cacher has visited one just needs to click on the "All Geocache Finds" link:

Privacy is already allowed wrt Statistics - you may opt out of having your detailed statistics displayed publically. But you may not opt out of having your chronological list of cache finds displayed. If the option to suppress the "All Geocache Finds" link is not on the table, then provide an audit list of visitors to our Profile page.

If this is implemented, two requests.

 

1. make the feature optional for the users. I don't care to have an audit file.

 

2. Implement a by user ignore feature. Then if some one wants to be anonymous with their cache finds I don't want to see the caches they own lest I be accused of stalking them. The ignore should be applied to any and all maps, PQ's and API cache down loads. It should also make the cache page completely unviewable, much like a PM cache page if your regular member. Any and all attempts to log the cache should also be blocked, again I don't want to be accused of stalking this person. The best way to implement this is if the user choose to hide their finds, any and all owned caches are also automatically hidden so I don't accidently stumble accross the person with a hidden profile and be accused of stalking before I ignore their cache.

 

Edit:

Actually to day you can suppress the list of finds on your profile. Simply add all your finds to your ignore list and all your finds disappear from view. Then it does not matter how often I visit your empty profile page.

In addition, since there will be angry spats generated by people who dare to look at someone's profile:

Produce a warning dialog that indicated this action request will be visible to the profile owner in their log. Give the individual the option to back out without viewing the profile before the audit log entry is generated

 

I don't want to be the guy accused of muggling a CO's caches because I decided to look at a few of their logs the same day.

Seems like it would make it to easy to stalk someone.

An interesting work-around. It's even filterable in PQs. A bit muddled though but definitely a work-around.

So you want the ability to track others usage of the site in real time so that you know when they looked at your non-real time history of places you're not going to visit again (and if you do, not predictably) for "privacy" reasons. Sounds a little hypocritical to me.
