    How is that even possible?

    I think "Guest" just means "hasn't logged in yet." I guess that the guest selected "Priv. Msgs" from Navigation, and when the site checked who was doing what the guest was in the process of logging in.

      I'll log out of my account for a while and browse as a guest. Could you check if you get the same info as well? (And I don't know, that Guest was viewing his private messages for more than ten minutes.)

        No, that guest is still checking PMs; perhaps when you just go to your Inbox, you're not considered actually on the board (since you're not reading it nor are you posting).

        Let a guy/girl read their PMs in peace sutrix!

        GUEST WHO WAS READING PMs UPDATE: They are now in the HoL forum. Bored? Moi?

        LOGIC OF ARGUMENT UPDATE: That means that my theory has a considerable HoLe in it.

          Actually when you go to your inbox you're Who is Online shows you as reading private messages on your membername.

          And also, while I was a guest and checking who was online, I was shown being on that Who is Online page as well.

          Perhaps the Guest was... ahem, uh, Forum Ghost.

              No guests are reading PM's... it is a fluke in the way phpBB reports what people are doing... BTW, these are likely google spiders anyway and they can not get to PM's without login info. Look what I just saw when I went to the admin panel, notice the IP of 66.249.66.234? Now click the link below and see who it belongs to

                Google!

                You know, I find the idea of the googlebot spidering our posts spookier than a guest viewing private messages.

                      I wish googlebots really were spiders. Tiny robot spiders. That would be ace.

                            I know what nikh said, I was just testing my imageshack out. Also note the difference in 's color in nikh's and my image.
