Nuther Numb Murkin Query::::::::

Postby Dan4th » Sun Jul 12, 2009 6:45 pm

To our Omnipotent and All-Knowing Admin::::::::::::::::

Just Wondering concerning the "hidden member" feature
on here. First of all, I wonder why it is that a forumeer
would want to be "hidden" in the first place.

Second of all, just recently it seems there have been LOTS
of hidden members. At times there have been more hidden
members than ordinary out-in-the-open ones. Not to seem
paranoid, but are we BEING WATCHED????????????????????????

I dunno, Wedge, iffin EYE were the Bull-Goose Looney
running this place, I would give serious thought to losing
that function permanently.

Really.

I was thinking the same thing as our Colonial Cousin. I don't see the point of it, and why would you want to be hidden? I think it's Aliens.

Edit. There are 3 hidden ones now - their eyes are everywhere :(

i think it's just when someone is on the front page but not logged in. not sure if the forum 'knows' one's IP address or not

I thought that hidden member had something to do with the cold or tight underpants. :ymblushing: :ymblushing:

I was thinking the very same thing - there were 12 hidden members the other day, & when I was messing around I couldn't hide myself, even when I logged out & logged in again anomalously it was still showing me on line.

haha but that was the point I couldn't - unless I needed to wait for an hour before logging in again.......I think I waited about 20mins before trying, what I was actually trying to do was to see if it still showed you on line when you weren't because it only updates the online users every so often
