Forum stealth mode?

May be the thread title is inconclusive. Just a trivial question.
Look at the attached print screen capture. Interesting mathematics: two members viewing, however, one is visible only. Is there a stealth mode for privileged members available?

Isn't this the User CP, edit options "invisible mode?"

What I have wondered about are the "guests." Are they real? For example, when few members are on here (say late New Years Eve for example) I have been on a few old threads (no new posts in months or even years). When I enter the thread no one is on it, as I read through the pages "guests" will arrive (sometimes 4 or more). Some of these must be bots? Kinda weird...

Thanks for your answer. Now I found this checkbox. Supposed it relates to"Profile Privacy" not "Edit Options" settings.

I'm glad your question has been answered.
As far as the visible guests, more than likely they could be bots.
There is not a way to tell, at least not that I am familiar with.

There is an invisible mode that you be used:
https://www.clubtouareg.com/forums/pr...do=editoptions

But to my knowledge it is truly invisible. What are are seeing is mostly like what was mentioned above: bots!

The link above is used to keep yourself invisible from the Currently Active Users list.
No way to see the "ghost" members as mentioned previously.

You should be able to see time stamped sessions in the sql db from all users and bots. Fun for nerdy admins... Gobblydegook to norms
