For times when the subject matter demands that you maintain your privacy, our forums support an anonymous mode. Simply select Anonymous Mode (the disguise icon) from your user menu and you’ll be provided a new anonymous account to post as. Switch back and forth to anonymous mode as much as you like.
Your anonymous account will maintain the same anonymous username over time to provide continuity in discussion topics, as well as allow you to receive mentions and notifications while in anonymous mode. To protect your long-term anonymity, the system will automatically generate a new anonymous account and username for you every set period of time (currently every 7 days).
You must be at trust level 1 or higher to use anonymous mode.
Our moderators and admins reserve the right to disable this feature, demote trust levels, and/or suspend accounts if anonymous mode is used to hide behavior that goes against our community guidelines.
