    We removed a lot of "data" for each user (number of posts, rank, sign up date, etc...) to try to make the site cleaner and more enjoyable to read. Some members understood the change but expressed wanting to see this information more easily. We've since adjusted the thread view so that whenever you hover over a user's name it automatically pops up their user profile stats.

    Let us know if this works for you!

    Works for me. Nice to able to easily see the info if I care to, but it's otherwise hidden.

    I like the quick access. In a perfect world I wouldn't have to click the information away once viewed.

    Maybe in the future allow us to see the user(s) recent post or thread they posted?

    "hover over a user's name"? How does that work?

    Because at the moment I want to see any user details, I have to tap on their name, that opens another page in my browser.

    Mm, certainly a desktop only feature. I don't mind the cleaner look.

    If you hover over the username and don't click you should see stats. Desktop only

    That said, I like the feature, but think there needs to a bit of a delay. I keep getting it popping up just sliding mouse across screen.

    Way too sensitive. Whenever I'm just moving my mouse a user profile pops up. I have to click X or hit escape, but damn ed if there isn't another username link between where my mouse pointer is and what I actually want to click. I'd stick with clicking to see a profile.

    Hmmm... ...your right. It was driving me nuts on my work computer, but on my Chromebook it doesn't work. I was using Chrome at work too. Odd.

    They replaced it with Play, so, that's a huge win in my book.

    That is odd: needing a desktop browser, sure, even a particular browser, but depending on the operating system is a bit weird.

    But I can confirm that it doesn't work on my Macbook (I've tried 2 different browsers, though not Chrome as I don't use that).
