Default Profile Question

Is there a way to hide the "Currently Viewing" on our profiles so that people can't see or follow around what we're looking at while online? It's kind of disturbing that other members can look at your profile and follow your activity in such a way.

Thanks,
Seesaw

Agreed. We've gone ahead and removed that information from members' profiles.

Thank you for this.

It always bugged me a little, but not enough to go into hidden/invisible mode because I thought it was nice to let people see when I was around. So, I'm glad to see this.

It already appears to be in effect. That was fast.

Default Re: Profile Question

Thanks doc john I love this new way where members cant click on profile and know what that person is doing. used to be even those of us that were marked as invisible our activities were still being monitored (as proof there is the who visits your profile section on your profile) by those who have us on ignore and those we have on ignore. now our activities cant so readily be available to those stalking our activities.

now we get to know who visits our page without giving away our own activities. I like it that I can come in here for a quick read and not have to worry about the fact that I dont have time to post even though the op of a thread may be watching who is visiting that thread.

my point i really like this being able to read and not worry about hurting others feelings because they may know that Im reading their thread but I may not have time to reply.

Thanks.

Actually, I just noticed something.

The current activity is still visible on people's profile pages under the "Statistics" tab down in the "General information" section.

Would it be possible to remove that occurrence as well?

Default Re: Profile Question

nice idea, only thing I don't like about it is that when I've messaged a member who is online, I can't see now if they are viewing the private messages or not

not a big thing, when they reply, they reply. it was just really neat to see that

my friend who comes on here has trouble using the forum, so it was really useful for me to help her
