Online Status deactivated - member still visible


just tested this with two accounts: If I uncheck "Show your online status" I'm still visible in "Members online now". Either this is a bug or maybe I'm using some wrong setting - I'm sure that's something you can tell me? :)

Thanks a lot for your answer. It's a user just within the group "Registered" and the permsion "Bypass user privacy:" has been set within the user group settings to "Never".

As Paul already implied, but didn't specifically state, you will always be able to see yourself as a hidden member.
Adding on to this, you can style invisible members to appear different under Members Online Now on the forum list in the style properties.

In the default style, they appear as a lighter blue.
