Where are they?!

I don't mind forums which show users who is browing in each section, but showing users browsing each thread is over the top. So where are the privacy options to go anon on the forums?

There won't be much privacy with a stupidly long sig like that anyway :D

I level up far too many characters. :( Nearly got my 7th level 50 character, will have to move them out of the sig soon as its getting a bit too long. :p

But I still dislike being tracked to each individual thread anyway!

The invisible setting keeps resetting itself. I've had to reselect it twice so far today.

Any chance of enabling it? I'd rather logout and browse anonymously instead of being watched in every single thread. Only need to login to post.

It helps to protect the privacy of users.

I wouldn't mind it so much if it was just forum based, but tracking down to "Currently Active Users Viewing this Thread" is over the top.

I didn't think people actually cared, but I like know where you are so I can prepare myself for a stupid sig to appear.

Feck me, slightly paranoid about who sees you or what?

Why do you feel the need to put all this crap in your sig? Its totally meaningless. At least put something readable in there.

What sig ? Oh yeah, I turned them off the moment someone said some DAoC'ers were on their way.

Have to agree with Tom, there needs to be some rules on length of sigs, not byte length but pysical screen space length. 5/6 lines is more than enough. imho.

There was a function coded in to the old forums by the ever wonderful DBs that limited the number of lines in a sig. I expect it would need to be changed for this forum though.

I dont doubt that once the forum code is no longer pre-release code Deebs will endow us with toys, including the ability to filter out sigs.
I personally like having the DAOC crowd here, I think they add something overall, but I have to agree, the long sigs that seem to be de rigeur there are tedious outside the daoc context. ooooh BIG words! mummy!
Sigs have a place, but I want to limit them to 3 or 4 lines personally.

The privacy issue is quite interesting. I've always set myself as invisible but thats disabled here as explained by Deebs and I actually think it adds something seeing who's here. Although a "sub-admin" I've left myself visible, just to see how it all works out.

The option to disable sigs should be in the user CP, i haven't checked on this board but its there on my VB3Gammer :) I'm not sure if its admin toggable option or not either.

The ability to be invisable should be avalible to everyone as it simply shuts them up :)
