Nothing, or nothing you can see...
« on: December 04, 2015, 12:21:01 am »
What's this mean? Furthermore, why can only guests read it?

It means that they are concealing whatever they are doing. But SMF HAD to make it sound creepy.

How do you conceal what you're doing?

It refers to visiting a forum that's only accessible to certain users, such as the tolp2 dev forum, the tolp2 tester forum, or some other hypothetical third thing that definitely does not exist.

Though there aren't any hidden forums in dware, so maybe they're just hiding their activity or something

Guest   06:25:15 PM   Nothing, or nothing you can see...


Guest is visiting the third, I presume?

If there WAS a hypothetical third thing (not that there is), it wouldn't be available to guest users.

So there is another thing. If someone is viewing something that doesn't have a message in the user list, it says that instead. So like if there is a mod that adds another karma thing and there is a page for it without a message, it will say Nothing, or nothing you can see...

1 part to it.
The other part: Mod as in MODIFICATION. Not Moderator.

One possibility is that guests are trying to visit something they can't see, and that only admins can see, and the online list doesn't check whether the person trying to access it can access it, but it does check if the person who views the list can access it.

I've seen several topics on the SMF community forums about forums which were totally locked down for guests, or forums in maintenance mode, but some guests were still trying (and failing) to access topics, and admins kept stubbornly telling SMF developers that they were certain their forum had a security hole because the who's online list says that guests are visiting topics...
