"hidden" members

what does it mean when it says "2 hidden" next to the number of registered members and guests?

is that an administrative/tekkie thing??
just curious...

Bucky, you can 'hide' your very own self if you want. It's one of the selections in the Profile thing. Scroll down and you will see what I mean.

I've used that function when I needed to catch up on my reading but didn't want to participate in what was going on at the time.

If someone is logged on but their name doesn't show it means they are hidden. You can go into your profile & mark a box(or un-mark it) to either have your name shown at the bottom or hide it. Did that make any sense? It felt like I was rambling.

"Hidden Members" are members who were bad so we needed to stick them down in the cellar for a while.
