When you log on you have the choice to log in as "anonymous." I am guessing that when you check that box it will show "anonymous" and not your username in the list of currently active members.

They are the ones who own the "Anonymous" tractors built in a secret place during a secret time. They blend in with the rest of us but don't admit to their addiction.

I'm with you on that one.  I wonder why anyone would want to log in anonymously.  I'm sure there is a good explanation for it.  I've never looked to see if anonymous members are on.

I think we might have some members that owe other members money?



I'm kidding.

I don't remember if it is forum runner, or tapa talk; one of them causes the member's profile to show their last active time as "private." I am not sure if that also causes them to count as anonymous.

I had to sign out to see what members see as far as the anonymous members.  Mods can see who is flying under the radar.  I can see it being useful to use when you're simply too tired to want to get caught in a conversation & just wanna read at your leisure.

Maybe, they are just trying to hide from their wives, who have their

own laptops.

If they post under the wire does it show their real name the next time around on that post?  Seems kinda shady to me if they can post like that...

I'm pretty sure their name displays as normal immediately once they make a post.
