    The "Who is online" box

    Post by MrPeakun on Sun Apr 06, 2014 10:50 pm

    I'm not sure if the topic goes in this thread, but I'm assuming it does so here I go.

    A while back I was looking at the "Who is online?" box, and when I clicked "View the whole list", I was brought to a page with a google map and a list of users and the part of the forum they're visiting.

    What concerned me is that on the map, you can see the locations of each user on the forum, and you could probably find out where they live. While I don't really mind myself, I don't think other users would like have their exact location available for others to find.

    Is there a way to remove the map alone? Or would the whole list and "Who is online" box need to be removed? If it's the latter, I think we should ask everyone on the forum whether it should be removed or not, since it's concerning their personal information.

    Sorry for not bringing it up earlier!

    That's odd. Never noticed that. Definitely something worth looking into. o.O

    I don't know how accurate it is, though, since it seems to think I'm in Kansas.

    I'm not sure, but it does get my location right. At least from what I can see.

    Hmmm... I don't know if I can remove this or not, but I did not know it showed the locations of people. I will check into this as soon as I can.

    Oh yikes I don't like that. It's not exactly right but it's very close. Yeah if someone could look into that, hopefully there's some way to get rid of it @@

    I poked around Forumotion's help thread, I see this is an option someone suggested? "Go to AP > Display > Structure and Hierarchy > Display viewonline information box on index : Never and save."

    I don't know what the backend of forumotion looks like but I guess it's worth a shot C:

    That's why I'm on hidden. I found that function the first day and assumed everyone already knew about it ^^;; if you switch to hidden, it hides your location.

    I hope we can somehow remove it. >: I don't really like being on hidden, even though it doesn't really affect much.
