Do you use Stratics' Invisible Mode?

    I noticed something about Stratics' Invisible Mode.

    When you go to your control panel > Settings & Options > Edit Options, you are given the option to use Invisible Mode. It says, "Invisible mode allows you to browse the forums without appearing in the 'Currently Active Users' lists."

    I use Invisible Mode most of the time and they are right, my name doesn't show up in the currently active users' lists.

    I copied and pasted a post into WordPad, because I wanted to be able to refer back to it. In looking over what I had pasted, I noticed it gives the current status of the user who made the post. I shows either online, offline or invisible.

    Pfft. I guess I may as well go uncheck that box.

    This is the information it displays about me -

    I thought someone else out there might like to know that anyone's status can be check on. Come to think of it, maybe most of you already knew this and I was the only one in the dark. =)

    You can see that you're invisible, but other posters can't.

    Thanks for your reply, Kiminality.

    So, I take it that if I leave the little box checked and remain invisible, no one besides Stratics officials and I will see "BlissMarie is invisible" when viewing the source. That's the way I thought it was originally. That's encouraging. I will remain in stealth mode. =)

    Pardon my ignorance, folks. :eek:

    There is nothing wrong with me that a nice serving of humble pie and a good night's sleep won't fix. :p

    I suspect you'd be hidden to some staff - content editors and reporters, for sure. Not sure about mods. Admins will be able to see you.

    Not trolling, but just curious, why go invis? Being pestered or something?

    This has always been my question. I certainly don't care either way, but never understood the desire/need. I guess I have never been so popular or sought after for any reason to need to go invisible.

    To each their own!

    My husband and I are separated. I have filed for divorce. I like the fact that he cannot see if I am on Stratics.
