Testing anonymous posting mod
« on: March 02, 2017, 04:24:57 PM »
OK, hopefully @xiagan doesn't get mad for creating this in here, but I'd like the opportunity for people to play around with the anonymous posting, and verify if there are any problems with it.

So, try quoting, posting, replying, looking at stats, mentioning, whatever you can think of. See if you can expose any technical issues with it.

Thanks!

I want to point out a couple of things. One, there is now a Reply Anonymously button.

Also, you will see your own name but there should be a ghost to the left of it. You can verify what is visible to others if you log out.

I got a Tapatalk notification that Nora summoned me. So if you quote somebody, that user knows who the post is from. ;)

Nora hasn't summoned you anonymously. Not that I've seen. She summoned you here:
Mmmh... Might need some mod intervention there in the submission thread @xiagan and @ScarletBea since if Anonymous "quotes" the original poster then the suspense is kinda lost.

but posted as herself. :)

Okay, I wasn't summoned. Didn't expect to be mentioned two times in such a short time. ;)

To ensure all my posts are fully anonymous and can't be attributed to me, I'll include the following, very confusing image.
