Show offline while you are actually online

Miss_Heels

A few years ago I was a member here and I specifically remebered there was a setting that you could toggle showing that you are offline to everybody while you are actually still signed in.

Does this setting still exist and how does one get to it? I just can't seem to find it now.

What would be the point of that?

It doesn't and I am pretty sure it never did; at least not in the 10 years i have been member of the site. 

 

That said, we are planning to add something similar.

I'm just one of those people who cannot ignore a ringing phone!

Sometimes I just want to read notes or post notes or check out tourneys; upcoming challenges and so forth without having that bit of pressure knowing I have to leave everything now to make a move coz someones waiting for me to do it.

You see - there's already 2 people waiting for me.!

There's never been an option to be invisible. When you are online, there's a green box at the bottom corner of your profile picture. If ur on live chess it becomes orange. If ur offline there's none. Ever since chess.com's creation it's been this way, it's one of the few processes on chess.com that has remained completely unchanged since its creation. 

 

But as Jdcannon said the staff are planning to create something similar to what ur asking, it will be interesting to see it's function and how it works, mayhaps just not showing the green or orange box.

This would be most convenient even on mobile let alone desktop. 

Miss_Heels

Thanks. I must be confusing that setting with some other website then. 

In all events, that function would certainly be nice.

Yes of course as you say @Miss_Heels it would be nice happy.png Nice heels btw

Thank you A6920. And they cost a pretty penny too. (For my salary in anyway...)
