Off line publication of member names.
« on: August 11, 2016, 09:43 PM »
I have recently noted that when not logged on a user sees the names of members who are reading a particular post. I believe this function should be removed for non members and others not logged on. This should be an exclusive and private feature for members.

What do others think?
If you don't like Signatures, just go to Look and Layout and tick No Signatures.

If someone really wanted to know, they'd simply setup up an account and log in anyway.

I agree that is probably not any business of a guest to know when members are reading a post.

I checked the settings and there doesn't appear to be a way to accomplish what is being asked unless we allow all Members to hide their online presence.  All that a non member can see is your screen name.  They can not access your profile to get any other info on you.
