Thread: The Veil Has Been Lifted

  1. #1

    Default The Veil Has Been Lifted

    In a move that I've been meaning to do for a while now, I have removed the ability of all non-staff to turn invisible on the forums. I've gotten several requests to do this, and I personally can't think of any reasons why any normal user would need to be invisible.

    If you have a problem with this, let me know why here.

    Also, you've lost the ability to delete your posts. Muahahaha!

    Hmmm.

    I don't see why removing the ability to become invisible does anything?

    Some people just don't like advertising what thread they are reading. It's a little stalkerish sometimes.

    Why the deleting posts thing? Some posts could become incriminating/embarrassing over time.

    You can still edit them out. It just takes out the Anonymous bump factor. It shouldn't change too much except letting people know that "Yes, there was a post here."

    if you wanna put a useful feature in, rainbow genki had a thing where if you posted and someone posted a response before you, you were able to review the new post beforehand, thus avoiding double postings.

    Something like that might be useful (if made optional)

    Excellent suggestion, I'll look into it now.

    You know what would be a useless albeit awesome feature?

    Graphic representations of our post counts, charted out. It'd be interesting to see spikes/lulls in our posting here.

    lol I was talking to Houk, but I get what you're saying. This could actually be possible. I'm having a bit of a slow day, so I'll look into it

    Why would anyone request that you disable invisiblity? I don't get it.

    Yeah that Rainbow Genki place was awesome. Why can't you make this place more like that?

    I liked the invisibility option and would like it back, to be honest. Who the hell has a bug up their ass about other people not appearing as online? Get off my case, Big Brother.

    Boo, I was a big fan of invisibility. I don't see what removing it gains, it's easy enough to stalk people's activity here. Some of us didn't like that.

    I never used invisibility, but I also don't really see how it's anyone's business who may or may not be lurking. What am I missing other than people wanting to be nosy?
