Why I cannot see the names of the viewers of MY posted questions ?

Why I cannot see the names of the viewers of MY posted questions ?

 

Is this an issue or it is not going to be implemented here ?

I don't believe we can see the actual viewers of questions or posts in the community, just the number of visitors that viewed or liked the post/comment/question. I would imagine there would be some major privacy issues that the forums would have to get around to show that level of detail.

Hope this helps @Nicolas Grossi.

It helps but this community is authenticated using sever authentication providers as most of all Atlassian products where you can see votes, participants comments, likes to a page... and so many other operations where the "authenticated" user appears.

If that "authenticated user" does not "behave properly" Atlassian has the ability to ban him/her/generic user.

 

Also bear in mind that i'm only requesting to see my posts viewers names not others. Others I might see the qty but on MY posts  why i cannot see names ?

That would be a direct breach of privacy laws in a lot of countries.

Plus you can't do it in most cases - people can read most of the questions without authentication, so you wouldn't know who they are anyway.

An additional comment is if we can see name of Kudos (given to you/and the one you give) why not names on views (with less importance/priority).

This metric is based purely on pageviews, whether logged in our logged out. If we tried to capture the data on who viewed content, it would likely dramatically impact our site speed (which as you may know, is not the fastest website on the internet to start with...)  (although we're constantly trying to improve it!) 

My suggestion is to keep an eye on who took the time to Like your post. You can actually see that, and it's a more meaningful action.
