    One question, how come if some staff try to hid their online status, they are still visible? I can see them and I believe the rest of the staff can too. Is there a way to change this if you understand what I mean.

    Any user group with the "Bypass user privacy" permission set to "Allow" will see invisible members.

    Wait, but I remember not being able to see any of my fellow administrators when they were hiding their online status, and for some reason now, I can.

    Your permissions must have changed, or they weren't online.

    One more thing, I apologize. Shouldn't it be set up differently for staff? I'm not necessarily talking about "members' in general, but rather more regarding the staff I have on my forums.

    Well, as an example, my staff and would be able to see regular members hiding their online status, but I wouldn't be bale to see my fellow administrator when he is on. How is this possible if this controlled in the user group section. It makes sense, but not in this ^ way.

    There is nothing different. If you can bypass privacy, you will be able to see the administrator when they are online and invisible as well.

    Alright, just something I wanted to make sure of. Thank you.
