How would one find the forks of their repl?

Profile icon

I want to see how many people forked my repl, but when I open it it doesn't show the traditional "guest view" like you would if you viewed someone else's repl.

Speaking of that, does anyone know why sometimes it shows their repl in the normal view and sometimes in the "guest view"?

I got a "guest view" of my repl once, but I don't know how to do it again?
Every time I open my repl it opens it in the traditional view. How would I find the "guest view" that views how many people forked your repl and when?

Is there another way to view the forks?

It is possible! add ?c=100 to the end of ur repl link

wdym? so wut happens is that c is the comment id ig. when someone sends a message to your repl, you get a notification, at the end of the link in that notification, you get a ?c={comment id}. if u add the ?c=100 to the end, it tries to go to the non-owner view. from the non-owner view, u can view all forks

that is not possible. You can give it to feedback though. Only you can see other people's , and others can see yours. You can't see your repl forks.

I mean, technically you could get people to comment on it then view the comment to go into guest view

log out/get an alt, and view your repls.

if you want to be able to see your forks on your account, feedback is your friend.

Speaking of that, does anyone know why sometimes it shows their repl in the normal view and sometimes in the "guest view"?

I think it's in beta, it's still a new feature the repl.it team is experimenting with. They're probably still tinkering with it so don't expect it to be definite now! :D

Make an alt, go to your account and have a look at one of your repls:
