So who is hiding

Often Rumored to be the Staff.  Wink
I know that Moderators (and presumably staff) access hidden boards (not accessible to ordinary mortals), there may also be hidden trial boards accessible only to those on the particular trial (where trial confidentiality is required).

Re: Who is hiding ?

using a hidden board doesn't hide the user name. none of the staff or moderators are hidden, it's an option in the profile though.
only one user on at the moment with that flag set.. and it's XXXX Wink

Re: Who is hiding ?

Ah, I misunderstood then.
I may try hiding for a while.  Wink

[Edit] You can't see me - right?
Unticking 'Show others your online status?' in 'Profile - Account Related Settings' appears to make you appear 'offline' even if you're 'online'.

But can 'they'?  You know, the 'ordinary ones' (without superpowers).

Re: Who is hiding ?

I never hide, always logged in permanently.
I suspect a few search engines will be included in those numbers.
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

Re: Who is hiding ?

On another forum I now moderate (but used to post a lot on), if a member saw me online I'd usually get asked a few questions about something by PM as they knew I'd respond quickly. By appearing offline you can pop on and check the latest posts without being annoyed by others.
The same with Staff - if I spot an issue that needs addressing quickly, I'll sometimes see who is online and pop a PM over but if they are on for other reasons, they may hide their statuses.

Re: Who is hiding ?

At present there are 7 hidden. Surely they can't all be staff. Maybe some of the hiders can explain this to us Undecided
