    Only the mods & W1zzard can see me... "I.M. THE GHOST IN THE MACHINE!!!"... lol!

    :)

    * Actually/seriously, you have options for this too, & they are in your user profile control page!

    (I.E. - you can post invisibly here, & not show up in the "users online" portions of this forum, just so you know!)

    APK

    P.S.=> I can also see my name in users online list below the forums index list, but it has a little "*" (asterisk) next to it, but I am not sure if this does this for everyone, visible OR invisible... apk

    It's not you guys, but it is others from forums where I have well, made some enemies over time... & it's to stop them from 'tracking me' here.

    (Sounds nuts, but it's happened @ AT LEAST 5 other places online, & yes, it has happened here & many others have seen it. In the "somebody wants AlecStaar dead" thread...)

    :(

    * So, to avoid problems? I go "stealth-mode"...

    Not in my case, w/ SOME people... nobody here, but from other places!

    :)

    * Like I said, to avoid problems/trouble, if possible, being brought on here by said 'miscreants'...

    APK

    P.S.=> Don't worry about reporting a bug, I don't think it is bad (imo @ least) that you did this... you meant well! apk

    1 more query, i've seen many users here who have posted more than 10-20 but show as 0 posts/ 0 ppd, can this be also done by will, or smthing else...
    p.s sry for being off-topic, but it was bugging me, and bugs gotta be squashed :D any kind of 'em ;)

    WoW... NOW, you have MY interest... can you think of some specifically?

    :)

    * Thanks!

    APK

    P.S.=> I know 1 thing: The board takes some time to update various counters & such, like views counts on threads/posts, so... it may just be that! apk

    Hmmm, that IS odd... I would report that to W1zzard, via "pm" (private message) w/ your specific examples.

    The case gallery doesn't count toward post counts.

    Yes, we have quite a few people who come just to post pictures of their case and for no other purpose. They get advice or compliments, whichever they are searching for, and feel no need to post anywhere else.
