I have made certain changes to the board and permissions ... Members can now hide their online status. If you wish to do so, you can goto your profile settings and make the changes. Your name will not appear at the bottom of the forum whenever you are online.
I received a couple of requests that members do not wish to show their status whether they are online or not, the reason for making this change.
Guests (non-members) can no longer view forum statistics or browse member profiles. They can only view posts and threads and nothing else.
