    I have had it setup for years now that it does not show what thread I am viewing or currently viewing and it seems to still be showing me view a thread when it's not supposed to?

    Why is that? Did the new update mess with other features?

    It is only showing to you what you are viewing. Other users aren't able to view that. Your settings are still the same and working
    If that is what you mean :hm

    No what he is referring to is when you have in your preference show your current activity unchecked it hasnt been showing your name in threads that you view. Now with the new update it shows your name in threads without it still checked. Thats what he is talking about.

    @Mbxx was the one who did the update, he most probably is the person who better know how to address this.

    Alright, let me basically boil down what the "update" has done:

    So Xon (the creator) released a new update and Mbxx updated to it. This is unavoidable and unlikely to ever be reverted so to sum it up.

    He (Xon)
    - Removed the "ALL readers list" which is something that was a staple part of the addon, but he felt it unneeded.
    - Changed around the time frame of the viewing so sometimes it looks bigger than necessary (I imagine it's within 10-15 minutes, can't say with 100% accuracy)

    Your preferences aren't changed; you simply see yourself online, others cannot.

    For most people you'll see

    "Users Who Are Viewing This Thread (Users #, Guests: #)
    [Your Name] ---- name of users who have their activity showing fully, [and # more...]

    What you see is irrelevant to what others see.

    Example from the current thread you're viewing with a non-staff account:

    What should matter here is that the concern got resolved and your question(s) have been answered
