Invisible Members?

I've noticed that when looking at the "currently active" and "active within the past 24 hours" stats, there are a lot of members whose names don't show. It just says "invisible". I'm curious as to how do they do that, and why?

Go into user CP, then on the left hand side there is the option for 'Edit options' and then 'Use Invisible Mode'

Okay, that answers one part of my question. There is still the "why", though. Also, if the make a post, does it have thier username on it? I don't think I've ever seen any posts by "invisible", so I'm assuming it does show their name on posts.

Yup, it still shows your name. I'm an invisible user

As for why, I just prefer it. No real reason and if a forum doesn't have that option I don't fret but if it does I take advantage of it.

OK now I'm wondering... Who does it make you invisible to if your name still shows up on posts?

I've always used invisible mode on forums. Otherwise you'd all go......jezus murphy, is she STILL on here.......

Actually it originated with a guy on a hobby forum, he had my phone number and everytime he saw I was online he'd be phoning me.....it was creepy.

I do this on other sites for the same reason.

I might have to start using invisible mode if my DW starts logging in from home and sees me logged into DT 24/7 while I'm away at work! She already thinks "we" are all addicted to the forum..... ("Dobies, dobies, dobies....")

Maybe, then, all the other DT members who are logged in 24/7 won't think I'm obsessed?......

Psh it's no good trying to hide the addiction through invisible mode if you're still posting comments throughout the day

Hmmm, considering I've been known to get up to do something, then get distracted, and forget I'm still on DT until I come back three hours later, only to discover that I'm still signed on, and the last page I was reading is still up..... The real question would be: am I actually here, or did I just forget I was here?
