If anyone wanted to get board readers/posters IP addresses on any phpBB
(and most other bulletin boards), another easy way would be to simply set
up your profile with an off-site avatar. I.e. in the “Link to off-site
Avatar:” box on the profile page, type in the URL to a server where you
able to read the log files. Then post a message, which will get read,
and then note the time of any replies, correlating them to the time you
got a hit on your avatar.

(This could also be done by inserting images/using html iframes etc)
