Within your User Control Panel, under “Board preferences”, you will find the option Hide your online status. Enable this option with Yes and you will only appear to the administrators, moderators and yourself. You will be counted as a hidden user.


Is not there.

Why do you feel the need to hide yourself? ;-)

The option seems to be gone now.

Indeed, there are several reasons in which some people would like to hide themselves. It's not like they're doing a very good job of it though.

I am an electronic Phantom...
It is assumed that I'm invisible...

What kind of Phantom is not invisible?

Given that the administration can see online status (and IP etc) regardless, I'm not sure of the importance to hiding your online status.

It's a stock PHPBB FAQ I believe, but I'll see whether we can update it.

The functionality should be there. Not sure why it's not. Not important though and will have to wait.
