    if you are hidden can you post? if so does it come up with your username? and if so what is the point of hiding and why do people want to hide from us? we are such a lovely bunch!.... :cheer:

    I've always wondered what the point of being hidden is. I understand how it works - you can post and it still comes up with your name, as usual - but I don't know what the point is.

    Yes you can post, I am usually hidden.

    I put myself onto hidden because some spammers and advertisers won't post when there's a mod online... and also when people cause trouble (;)) they will generally do it when there's no mods about.

    Then I just forget to put myself back to visible.

    I'll do it now for you though :lol:

    I didn't know you could be hidden. On my dads laptop I'm not logged in all the time like I am at home so sometimes I come on the forum and read without logging on but as soon as I want to post I have to log in. Is that what you mean by hidden? Just not logged on? or is that a guest?

    :?

    No, in your profile there is a "hide online status" bit. You can browse and post on the forum but no one will see your name in the list.
    I can see hidden people though. ;)

    I see hidden people, they browse around like normal people, they don't even know that they're hidden.

    I'm hidden for the same reason, I leave the page up for hours sometimes but I'm not always at the puter. I come backwards and forwards between chores, it's a bit like setting yourself to busy or away on msn I guess
