Hide your online status. Quack.
« on: October 12, 2007, 11:19:24 pm »
Some anti-cheaters have been caught fishing IPs of forum members in the past. Basically they post an invisible or some fishy image that is hosted on a server they control. They then check their server logs for IPs that accessed the image. And/Or combine it with times they know you posted in a certain topic.

We're suspecting that this is going on again right now. We've found some strange images in some posts by known anticheaters as well as in posts by anticheaters posing as cheaters. Don't give them the chance to control the way you want to play. Hide your online status in your profile.

We're probably going to put hidden mode as forum default soon. Right now we have a randomizer that distorts the time you post a message, but it will be removed as soon as possible due to other problems. Alternatively, use the built in Opera feature as sung by Wesker below.
