I have mine hidden most of the time (in fact, almost all the time) because a lot of the time I am logged into the site I'm at work. So, although I stay logged in my entire shift, I'm on and off the website and don't want to create a false impression that I am here when I am not.

So, for me it's not a sense of not wanting extra work, but putting the community first. If someone PMs me wanting an immediate response because my status shows online, I find it unfair to them that they have to wait because I am not actually "here".

They have a right to hide their online status-- don't forget they are a player first or something like that. With that being said, we should have a right to place them on ignore / foe list but that doesn't seem to be the case. Go figure.....

I think a compromise is warranted.

A mod should have to be visible for a certain amount of time.

Ideally, there should be at least one present "always". However there might be times when that's not possible.

With one of the latest forum updates lack hacked the code to make it able to foe mods (and admins, I believe).

Wouldn't that make issuing warnings a bit difficult?

I voted "yes." I personally can't think of a single thing I would need an immediate response to from a Mod. On this site or any other. Or a single reason I would have to know their online status.

I just assume that a bunch of them are around doing super secret mod things all the time.

It is an interesting question though.

Here's my two cents.

Yes, we agreed to help in the forums. But we are a player first. There are 54 mods in total, Yes, but essentially only so many mods can do so much in each forum. But say we are in a speed game, and don't want to be bothered at the moment. So why can't we hide our online status, and focus on that game? We aren't all "hiding" so we don't get logged with PM's. But say we are online, you message us, we ignore it for now, and want to get to it later. I bet you that some members will think we are ignoring them or didn't get the PM, and start sending more and more to that mod. Not every moderator can lock a thread in every forum. . You are basically taking the right away from us, as a CC member, to hide our status.

Sure, it seems unfair that moderators can hide, but why should any other CC member get to, when we can't?
