Incognito Button

Post by That Admin Person on December 26th 2012, 7:37 am

Hi all! I have a suggestion because, as a forum owner, I would really like an incog button because in some posts on my site, users might have things to say but don't want people knowing it's them.

My suggestions for an incog button:

-The ability to turn the incog feature off/on for all or certain forums, topics, or even members.
-Only members could use it.
-Only Admin/Mods can track the IP
-Members could select the incog feature in a check box when replying/starting a new topic.
-Allow Admin/Mods to display who the person is if they abused the incog feature

If anyone has any more suggestions of what to add to the features of incog, please quote me and tell me. I honestly really need this for myself, and as there is no tutorial on how to do this for FM, I brought myself to ask.

Please vote yes Exclamation

I personally like the idea with this one. I've seen some sites with the sign in anonymously feature so it'd be nice for FM to have it too.

I like how you suggested that you can turn it off for certain users - That way if someone abuses the ability, you can just "delete" it for them, and them only.

You got my vote.

So I guess you're voting "yes", Kaizer?


And @ThatAdminPerson, I don't really have any suggestions for it - The idea is very simple for perfect in a way. Lol

Yeah, although, since FM forums won't be able to stand websites like FB which have the notification and stuff, it would be nice if FM were to generate an automatic pm to the members who's post who have been quoted in the topic too Smile.

I'm going to vote no because I'd never use it and the people who post needs to be known, even if you can track there IP Address.

Not to be rude:

But it's just you and I really need this. Plus, as I stated above, you can CHOOSE to disable/enable the feature for all forums, topics, and/or members, or you can choose which forums/topics/members will enable the ft.

I'm just sayin'

Forumotion should have had this a long time ago. :p It's sad how nobody rushed to get this feature in before. Do we really have to vote for this? TAP suggested good ideas/suggestions for the feature, so there's no reason not to. Just do it as I need it on my forum as well.
