Good to see you again sweetie! You too Indy...

 

Just my thoughts, but you should be able to see yourself if signed in anonymously but no one else should know that you're online, except Mods and Admin.

 

Somebody correct me if I'm wrong...

We must all agree with indy when there are several topics like this on a site with limited activity

requesting information about the defragger

I do not agree with indy. I visit every day frequently 2 or 3 times a day. For me it is not a matter of caring to answer. If I have an answer that I think will be helpful I type it in. If I don't have an answer I do my best to stop myself from making something up just to have an answer.

 

Now to make an answer to the OP. I don't know the original purpose behind anonymous sign on to a forum. Searching the internet didn't give me anything reliable I would post here. Any guess I would make has a counter argument of equal or greater value. So I'm not going to stick my neck out with a guess.

 Anonymous Sign-In allows you to see the forums and your account without others others knowing you're whereabouts. It's been a while since I've spent time on the forums but has something changed about that?


When all else fails just do what works.
