Hi everyone!

Just bringing you another feature update. We have added anonymous posting, but only to two sections of the forum: Serious Discussions and Debates and Help. These sections may contain content that you don't want to be attached to you (i.e: your view on religion, or maybe you're having depression and don't want everyone to know). I see no reason to have it anywhere else on the forum, so yes, only in those two sections. Obviously, this opens up a gateway for people to get their "creative" comments out (which may break forum rules or cause other nuisances). Due to this, all staff will be able to see who is behind the anonymous post. Sorry, it has to be this way so people don't get too creative with it. Anyone who isn't a staff member (aka the majority of the forum) won't be able to determine who you are though (unless you use references or language specific to you). If you post anonymously, your avatar will be a robot with your name being "Anonymous". If you want to post anonymously, just check the "Anonymous?" check box in the supported sections. I encourage you guys to avoid using this unless there's *really* something you don't want people to know. I'm hoping that we don't encounter a ton of abuse and that everyone uses it sparingly so we can keep this feature around. A forum is about voicing your opinion. If you're constantly wanting to be anonymous, then go create a blog or something. :p

Hope you guys like this and enjoy your weekend! :)

The thing stopping people from doing that is that you appear as a regular user to staff. So everything still applies and nothing is different. You're just anonymous to other users.

I was wondering how that was happened, but apparently that was in the midst the updates. :p
