Invisible mode? NOT!

Posted February 7th, 2013 at 09:20 PM by Hikamaru

During the past week or so, my computer was in the repairs due to being hot-headed. So much, it turned off on me at the worst times. I've had to use so many borrowed computers, reducing my activity slightly.

This weekend, my computer returns and I'll be back to staying for long hours, and even crazier convos on the Showdown server. When my computer was in repairs, my mother was the reason why I wasn't online at some times, and my brother's computer had a log-out timer set on me.

At times, I even had to put myself in Invisible Mode, which is when you're online, but cannot be seen on the online list by non-staff. When someone saw me like that, they say it's not a good look for me. They always know me as an active poster, and not a lurker.

Let's hope my computer doesn't get out of control to force me into invisibility again, cos trust me, I look silly in Invisible Mode. Glitchguy says it was hard for him getting used to me being hidden from view.

So yeah guys, now that you have seen me turning invisibility on and off lately, which do you think looks better on me?

    Hikari, I think it's great if you don't go invisible again. And congrats that your computer will be up this weekend!

    But...the only people that can actually see you turning your invisibility on and off are staff members. Supporters and regular members can't see that and wouldn't really have known unless you told them. lol

    Well actually they can. If I visited Hikari's profile and she was on invisible mode, it wouldn't say when she was last online or if she was online at all so supports and regular members can see when people are invisible. js.

    Hikari I think you're perfect whether you're invisible or not~

    Yes, you are correct. Hikari is Hikari whether she is invisible or not.

    Does it matter much? If you respond to VMs and PMs in a timely manner then I dont think it's much of an issue for anyone, is it? Lurkers are called lurkers because they don't post. If you post then.. imo it doesn't make a difference what mode you're in.

    Invisibility mode is dumb and I never understand why people use it.

    I agree with Kura. It doesn't really matter whether you're on invisibility or not. I don't see why we need an announcement about it.

    @charlie brown: you just said it yourself, that you wouldn't see her as online and that you'd see her as offline. Meaning you don't see her as invisible. It looks offline to you. Lol

    ....I could be the judge of this because I'm always invisible. I feel more comfortable that way. And I need invisible mode without it I feel like I can't be comfortable online. (With the exception of EGC: I can't go invisible there because it's not available to members but if it were available I'd pretty much keep it off because I want people of EGC to know when I'm around.)

    Stay visible for now unless you're going on LOA.
