    Identities are set in the contact details section and include Skype, Google Talk, Facebook and Twitter accounts.

    Then people will not be able to see any identities you might have entered.

    Okay, but I see when we click on name of any member a status on right comes, viewing so and so thread and in some members a blank space comes when they are active also. What is the option for that?

    That is reserved for gold members.
     
  8. Apr 24, 2015 #7
    But some non-gold members are able to hide that. How?
    Can I give you examples?

    Staff and advisors also may have it.
     
  10. Apr 24, 2015 #9
    Excluding that still there are some more people.

    Can you show me an example?

    gracy's last seen is showing, mooncrater might have been on a page not tracked or on the homepage.

    To me gracy last seen is not showing.
    It might be because you are staff:admin ?

    Is it also that when we logout it is not seen. Can you see what I am viewing now?
     
  17. Apr 24, 2015 #16
    Yes, you are still logged in

    So can You tag here some non gold members to check that what I am saying in post 13?
    Or if you have another non-gold member account ( I think you can create multiple accounts), can you check that?
    Or could I tag some members here also?

    May I ask why this is so important to you?
     
  20. Apr 24, 2015 #19
    So I can converse with my friend mooncrater here on physics topics by seeing that thing.
    But don't know how he is able to hide that being a non-gold member.

    Generally to set invisible mode you must be a gold member. There are free ways to get gold membership.
