'hide my online status' NOT WORKING!!!

Unread post by arks » Sat Jan 23, 2016 12:28 pm

Although I have "hide my online status" set permanently AND altho I have also ticked it just now when I logged in to see whether that would work, apparently nothing is working and I am listed as being online. This is something that I do NOT want and I hope that this will be corrected IMMEDIATELY. My privacy is important to me and it is NO ONE'S business whether I am on the forum of not :twisted: :roll: :twisted: :roll: :twisted:

What's the excuse for this latest problem?!? :roll:

Tr-Trrp you are showing hidden to me. Is your name in italics when it shows when you have chosen to be 'hidden'.

Can I ask you to please ask Philip of he can see you showing online? As a mod I can see you but a member might not. If he can, then there is a problem.

Thanks! We are having a fabulous time.

Hopefully that issue has been resolved and now we can see ourselves when we are hidden.

WHY should I want to see myself listed when I have chosen to be hidden?!? That seems simply stupid to me ... but if that's what the italics mean, then that explains it. But IMO having such a feature is totally UNnecessary :roll:

And I'm STILL having to log in at least once a day :wall: even tho I have ALWAYS ticked "remember me". Rather they might fix that issue than provide a way for me to see myself when I'm hidden. Weird priorities IMO :roll: :wall: :roll:

arks.. the remember me function does not lie on the server side but on your own computer under the cookies and password lists that windows / macs save.
I would suggest deleting your cookies and that might solve the issue for you being remembered :)
At the end of it all you don't want to go into the grave peacefully and quietly in well preserved body... You want to go sort off skidding in sideways, full of bruises and scratches saying: "Man what a ride!!!"
