It would, indeed, however some of us feel anti-social quite often... -points to self- I'm also starting to feel uncomfortable having my activity displayed to the whole of WI, but my best friend has no clue when to VM me if I'm invisible... I do understand where you're going, though.

I like this idea, so creepy stalkers won't stalk me.

To be honest I don't see the need for this. It would be cool, it just seems kind of unneeded.

I mean, if people see you posting, even if you're on invisible, they know you're on. And my friends always know I'm on because when I VM them, I tell them when I'm logging off.

And what would you be 'up to' on WI that you wouldn't want anyone but your friends to know about? xD Remember nothing is private on the internet.

That's my opinion. I'm not against it, I just don't see how practical it is.

Creepy stalkers? xD On WI? xD

With our amazing mods, I doubt there's any of those on here. And besides, you can block players.

Yes, sadly certain people like to stalk others by looking at "Posts by *put user here*" or their status.

To be honest, I have a neutral opinion on this idea.

I do hope you realize that it happens everywhere.
You'll get stalked on the internet, it's normal. Whether their intentions are good, or not. It's life. I mean, even if they were to completely allow you to disable your 'posts by ____', in the end, they're still gonna find a way to stalk you.

I mean, it's normal.

When I joined WI today, I didn't want everyone seeing what I was doing. But now that I look at this, I kind of agree with you.

And sometimes, when it shows "posts by ____", it doesn't mean they're stalking you either. Well, sometimes that might be the case, but maybe they're trying to find that special speech they made that you heard you were mentioned in, etc. Maybe they're trying to find the club they joined that you wanted to join, but on Join The Club, you can't find it. Just something I'd thought I'd point out.

I am sorry, but I agree with cheekyluver. A lot of people like to show how helpful they are. I suggest using the disabled reputation if you want to hide it.
