Invisible Mode
 
Purely out of genuine curiosity and as a break from politics, I'd be interested to know why someone would choose to log in for hours every day but use " Invisibility Mode". Often, we seem to have 1 less members name shown than the "active users" figure indicates.

Frankly, I fail to see the usefulness of such a facility. If you don't wish others to know your're visiting the forum, why log on in the first place ? Is there some advantage to using "Invisibility mode" ? Am I missing something here ?

You’re assuming it’s deliberate, where does one go to turn that on or off?

"User Control Panel" - "Edit Options" first item on the page. I'm assuming nothing, merely asking a question *chr

If science and technology ever invent an invisible mode for use in reality it could have a multitude of uses and advantages *yes

My comment about assumption was because at that point I genuinely wondered if it was me, in which case I can assure you it wasnít deliberate! Is wasnít so everything is right with the world! (If only that was all it took)

T'aint me neither. I assume the default setting for a new user is "off", and if somebody deliberately turned it on they're not likely to tell us are they!

I've never seen a use for it and it doesn't hide the user from the mods, we can clearly see when someone has logged on invisibly!

Not me, although I often get the feeling that I am sometimes.
