Anonymous Posting for Writing Contest Submissions
« on: March 02, 2017, 02:29:42 PM »
I have installed a modification that allows for any user to make their own posts Anonymous.

Please note, it will not auto-magically make a reply Anonymous, you must first expand the "Attachments and other options" menu at the bottom of your post and then manually check the box for "Post Anonymously":



Any questions, ask away! Hopefully this will make the process of anonymous submissions easier, just have to be careful to always remember to check that box before submitting your reply that you wish to be Anonymous. Whenever @xiagan requires an Anonymous submission month, everyone will be required to submit this way (or use the old way if you wish, but you wont be able to update your post as easily)

Yup, not showing up for me either, and I checked, and it doesn't show up even when we create a new topic.

Could it be that it appears only for mods atm?

I tried in the submission thread, being a mod, and it wasn't showing for me either.

OK, try again. Permissions are really wonky and there are at times multiple settings that need to be updated in completely different places. Let me know if I fixed it.

Where did you try? It's not enabled at this level, just in the March Writing Contest Board. Do you not see it in the Submission or Discussion thread?

Oooh, don't mind me I'm dumb, I thought it was a general option, not only in that thread.

Awesome, thanks heaps!!
