Good Afternoon. Would it be possible to introduce a 'discreet' forum view.

This would be helpful to people who wish to view the forums but do not want it highly visible on the screens what forum they are looking at. Pictures/smileys would also not be visible.

A few other forums I view have this option and was wondering if it could be used here as well. Thanks.

    I'm not sure why anyone would want to secretly view this forum, but if you do, simply log out.
    (well I can think of a few, but none of them are honourable)

    You can set your account features to not display signatures, avatars and/or images (but you cannot hide smileys afaik, possibly as this site considers they are included to convey the meaning of a post)

    Of course, you do need to be logged into your account to set your own features.
    (unless you can find some third party software to do it for you)

    You mean this option taken from another board?

    It's usually an option in forum themes or views. Removes colouring, large forums headers.

    Just have a porno site open in another tab and if someone walks past you can Ctrl-Tab to it and pretend you're having some good wholesome fun instead of reading this.
