    Invisible Mode: where did it go? [SOLVED]


    I've been meaning to ask this for several weeks now, but just wondering why invisible mode is apparently disabled?

    I don't want to use that option at this time but have done so before and might want to use it again in the future. That said, I'm sure there are some users that would like to use it now.

    Is there some good reason for not having it activated?

    Again, just curious. Thanks in advance...

    I was able to enable it by going to my "User CP" at the top left of this page, then "Edit Options" from the links on the left menu. At the top was a section called "Login & Privacy" with a check box for Invisible mode.

    Thanks for the reply, techieMoe. When I go there, all I get is:

    Code:
     Login & Privacy
    Allow vCard Download
    You may choose to allow other users to download a vCard containing your email address and username.
    
    If you want to keep your email address private, do not allow vCard downloads.
    Allow vCard Download
    No "invisible mode" option... that's why it appears to be disabled from here.

    Hmm.. Beats me. Perhaps it's disabled by default for users other than mods?

    Nevermind... it's working now

    Hmm... after the trusted penquin thingy, I'm seeing it now so either it's been enabled, or only certain members can see the option.
