    How Do I Use 'Invisible Mode'?

    What's the point of activating my Tarnmantel - cloak of invisibility - when all someone has to do is look in your post bit to see when you have last been active or scroll down to the currently active users legend at the bottom of the screen where your name will be visible?

    Is this a flaw in the software? because other sites using vBulletin have the same issue.

    I have noticed however that certain moderators are always completely undetectable when on-line, so it must be possible to be completely invisible to other users.

    Re: Invisible Mode???

    Go into your UserCP => Edit Options

    First point you see "Use Invisible Mode" klick it and save your changes.

    After you done it you will be invisible, you can see it in posts and on your profile at this pic:

    Does mine work? I never think it does.

    Thanks for the hint, well observed. We suppressed the "Last Seen:" and "Time Online:" entries for members who use invisible mode.

    or scroll down to the currently active users legend at the bottom of the screen where your name will be visible?
    Nope. There you can only see yourself, but others can't see you. Your username will be followed by an asterix (*) when you are invisble.

    Is this a flaw in the software? because other sites using vBulletin have the same issue.
    Partly. The "Last Seen:" and "Time Online:" entries are not an integrated part of the vBulletin software, but third-party modifications we installed. In such cases it's frequent that not everything is well-pondered.

    I have noticed however that certain moderators are always completely undetectable when on-line, so it must be possible to be completely invisible to other users.
    But they flirted with Fjörgyn and Aeternitas.

    I'm sure they are both germanic Godesses but i'd be much too frightened!...lol


    My thanks and sincerest appreciation to
    Fjörgyn and Thorburn for descending from Valhalla and the rarified company of the Aesir to answer my question with such expediency.


    Is the big T hovering about? I'm out of here.

    Best wishes,
    _GM.

    Comrades,

    New question.


    Why isn't my HTML activated? My current Avitar is animated and going to waste.




    Best wishes,
    _GM.

    As a funding member you are supposed to be able to use an animated avatar, but are you sure you saved your image into the right format? I see it as a jpeg, and you have to use a gif f.e. for animated avatars.

    HTML can be used in your posts or usertitle - you can choose a different colour, font, etc. for it, but a helper or admin has to set this option for you first, if it hasn't been done yet.

    Re: Invisible Mode?

    Comrades,


    Some additional questions:
    -What is a pgp Key?
    -And how long do warnings remain in your profile?


    * Aeternitas: I do not remember your specifying the time frame for which my warnings would endure in my profile. Could you Shoot me over a quick PM?
    Thanx.

    Thanks and best wishes,
    _GM.

    For as long as was written in the warning PMs you received.
