Do you hide your online status?

Postby Cheese » Sun Oct 07, 2007 5:14 pm UTC

Simple question. (Hopefully) simple options. Remember, people don't know what you voted for!*
I never do, because if I don't want to be seen as online, I'll log off and lurk.


*Can anyone see who's voted for what, or is it truly anonymous?

I don't see the problem with people knowing whether or not I am online and therefore always am visible. I also can't be bothered to select the "login as hidden" check box

Nope. Don't care if people see me online, I'm not trying to hide from anyone.

I don't, but I can see anyone who has theirs hidden. Which is fun.

How so?

I'm selecting usually not. It's only when I want to talk to somebody but I don't care to converse with anyone else.
However, this leads to some confusion when the other person is thinking the same.

No, it's because he has mystical psychic powers. The other mods can't see your online status, unless Jesster lets them.

Nah. I do on the other forum I visit a lot, but not here. Mainly because I encourage people from here to randomly IM me, which seems more likely if they can see generally that I'm online. I don't really want people there IMing me, aside from those I already talk to regularly...

As the others have said, I don't see the point in hiding your online status, it does nothing, people will still PM you anyways if they wish to, and if it says you're online and they do, just act as if you didn't see it or went afk.

Now I know all your foruming habits!

I never hide my status, I think it's kind of pointless :)

I hide my status, though I forgot I did and voted Rabbit.

I don't, mainly because I don't care.

Also because I don't really post that often, but I do read often. So if people think I'm just some random guy without any fora cred, maybe they'll see me in the online list.

I'm probably overanalyzing.

Nope. Not like I'm avoiding anyone here anyway. I have to do it on other forums though, mostly because of people who would rather PM me than pick up the damn phone.

Never hide it. Have no reason to. I'm suspicious of those that do. What could they possibly be doing that requires hidden status?!

It makes me feel like a ninja. Also, I spend a shameful amount of time on here, so it sort of hides the fact that I don't have anything better to do.

If I don't want people to realize I'm online I don't go online.

MSN, right?

Uhm if I'm avoiding someone, or my family member comes on the computer I will, or am busy - as it's quicker.
