If someone is in need, it shouldn't matter what their rep, post count or thanks are.
I guess it could be seen as discriminatory but it might be the only way forward for an anonymous feature. Anyway I'm not bothered just my 2 pence...

Can't people just say something like, "My mate this this problem with the ladies.....can you help?"

Just what my mate was thinking. He says it's a good idea.

Re: What do you think of an anonymous forum?

quite even on the poll so far, would be nice to see a large amount of poll replies to see if it really would be a nice option or not

Re: What do you think of an anonymous forum?

I was on a forum like that for a number of years where there was a forum with not all of us using real names, then a completely anonymous forum that started out as a "sensitive issue" corner and turned into "omg did you see NicoleCZ (or any other forum member) the other day?! What a fat ho!"

Now this is all fine and good as many people on EF have those they like and those they like less, etc etc. But the problem in my other forum came from an indiscreet moderator who knew what everyone was saying about everyone, and basically divulged information at will depending on who his friends and enemies were.

Then some hacker wrote a script which busted all the lurkers, that was a fun day.

I'm not saying the EF or the EF mods are capable of such baseness, and I'm not saying people don't already snark behind each other's backs here already, I just think an anonymous forum is a extra level of potential drama and the risks for ppl turning it around are too high.

Re: What do you think of an anonymous forum?

This place is anonymous enough. If you want to go around telling people who you are in the real world, then that's your issue.

My name's lost_inbroad, now what was the question again?

Re: What do you think of an anonymous forum?

As promised, this was discussed in the Moderator Zone and to be honest there was not much support for an anon section in the forum (which incidentally does mirror the results of the poll )

However one thing which did come out of our discussions was the possibility of a Sticky with a directory of councelling services, which we and other EF members can help populate. Hopefully this will become a valuable resource for members.

Cheers
