First off, THIS JUST FUCKING BOILS MY BLOOD.

Either people want to be members around here, OR THEY DO NOT.

I vote that the ability to HIDE ONLINE STATUS be disabled once and for all.

That is all.

With regards,
Bitlane

Technically he should be dead.

I do agree with him though. We had this argument on an old social network of mine too, where people were complaining about the feature to "hide" your online status. It seems like a shit thing to do but there is an honest use for it as well as a dishonest use for it, the honest reason obviously being for people who have limited time and don't want to invite the bombardment of discussions. The dishonest reason being to avoid creditors.

Why would I want people to know I'm online? People will PM, I'll realize they know I'm on, then suddenly log out and pretend I'm not there while I read the PM via email to see if I feel like responding to it immediately or continue pretending I'm napping/in town/on vacation/deathly ill/etc.

i didn't even realise you could hide your status... but thanks to the OP, i've now noticed the option in my profile settings.

who wants to bet there's a large correlation between showing your online status and being a member of facebook.

Let me be subtle....

IF YOU CHOOSE TO PARTAKE IN TRADE OR UNDERTAKE BUSINESS OR TRANSACTIONS IN ANY WAY, SHAPE OR FORM ON THIS FORUM OR RELY ON IT TO SERVE SAID INTENTIONS IN ANY WAY, SHAPE OR FORM, YOU SHOULD BE DENIED THE ABILITY TO HIDE YOUR ONLINE STATUS.

SELLERS/INVESTORS/LENDERS/BORROWERS/BUSINESS OPERATORS/SERVICE SUPPLIERS.

No more excuses.....from anyone.

If you click on someone's name, there is a handy "last active" function.  This is a non-issue.

I do business with people on the forums, and my online status changes nothing about that.

Let me suggest you seek another forum that will support your fascist leanings and control disorder to disable individual privacy.

Also, this:

Why would I want people to know I'm online? People will PM, I'll realize they know I'm on, then suddenly log out and pretend I'm not there while I read the PM via email to see if I feel like responding to it immediately or continue pretending I'm napping/in town/on vacation/deathly ill/etc.

I always hide my online status. But the forum also always gives you the time that I was last active.
What's the fucking problem?
Would it be wise for me to appear to be online 24/7/365 just because I leave 200 tabs open in my browser?

Look at the person's last online time and you'll know the last time they opened a page.

You're shouting dude... STFU or swallow it. It doesn't taste as bad as you might think...

I don't see any reason to prevent that. Most scammers aren't going to care that people know they're online.

But the forum also always gives you the time that I was last active.

Only you can see that stat when your online status is hidden.

Good to know. No longer need to log out, cowering in fear of "live" human contact.

Are you sure about that?  I can see the last active stat of every member on this thread...  I assume some are hidden (like myself).

Call Display/VoiceMail....Online Status/PMs....all stemming originally from simply leaving the 'porch light' on or off (while peering out of a dark window) to ward off evil personal interactions and screen without obligation (also works to screw kids out of halloween candy).

Who would have known that humanity could have made it SO FAR in such a short period of time.

Humanity didn't progress due to a bunch of undesired interruptions.

So.. let's get this straight: You sayin' that other users see my last active status as being from 5 months ago when i turned on the "Hide my online status" thingy?

Nope.  Your "last active" is showing as being today.  My online status is also hidden but I'm pretty sure that my profile shows me as last being active today.

In my opinion, showing online status doesn't make people any more likely to respond to either PMs or posts directed at them in the forums.  Last activity makes it clear whether or not they still visit the boards so I don't really see how removing the ability to hide online status is beneficial.  If they're going to ignore you, they're going to do so no matter what.

All I can say is that this is Bitcoin. I don't believe it until I see six confirmations.

Ah, you're right. Whoops. I somehow missed that when I checked it...
