Is The Forum Profile System Working Properly?

When I view my profile, I see that people have been viewing it in the past. This has raised a question for me:

Why can't I view other peoples profiles? I want to be able to view one or two, but it doesn't seem to be working right for me. The help documentation says;

 

"Profiles

You can access a member's profile by clicking their name anywhere in the community."

 

But it isn't exactly working right for me. When I try clicking a name, it just highlights it, no profile viewing.

Is it a problem with my account? Computer? Browser?

When you view your own profile, it counts as somebody viewing your profile.  Nobody other than the dev team can view your profile.

 

It was setup that way because on the old forums there was a very bad problem with trolls (link).

Wow, that really sucks...

Maybe it'd be best if they removed the friends, messaging, communication features in general for the forums then, so that new members, like me, do not get confused with it. Anyway, thanks for clearing this up for me. Guess its radio or nothing now.
