Wrong information in FAQ

Post by Korkel »

Hi,

The FAQ says the following, if you hide your online status for everyone (hidden user) it will be visible for Admins, Moderators and Yourself. faq.php#f1r1

I hide my online status but I can't see myself at the online list... :roll: This is also in 3.0.X versions.

It doesn't specifically say you will be visible in the online list to yourself.

Enable this option and you will only appear to the administrators, moderators and yourself. You will be counted as a hidden user.

You've been here long enough to know that if you believe something is a bug, put it in the bug tracker. If it's not, they'll say so.

Serious? Am I?

I've never used the bug tracker.

By that you mean /viewonline.php itself, or local displays on the index and/or viewing a forum?

That doesn't collide with knowing its purpose. Do you think bugs get fixed thru developers reading topics here and there, or thru collecting them in a list where one can also track the bug's (fix) status? On top you chose this forum to discuss something, you didn't even seek a support forum.

It must be fixed in the next RC (and final release), thank you!

And the reason is...? Hint: nothing will be fixed when there is no bug ticket. And you never answered my questions - don't say I never tried to reproduce your assumptions.
