I use XChat. How do I find out when a user last logged into the channel or was last there?

/!seen [user-nick] didn't work. It said !seen isn't a command. I don't want my query to be visible to others.

How do I do it then?

I don't know of any commands for specific channels, but only of 'last seen' in the server. Otherwise, you could have a bot and ask it directly, depending on what commands are available on the bot. – Jerry May 11 '13 at 13:35

On networks with NickServ, you can use INFO command. So, if you want to find out when a user 'Jerry' was last online, you can do:

/msg nickserv info Jerry

If they're online, you can whois them, like:

/whois NickName

Hope this helps :)

If you don't want to write !seen in the channel you can usually pm the bot with something like:

!seen #channel nickname
