Privacy settings on user stats

It seems that it’s possible for other users to see how many likes you’ve received/given out, how many times you’ve posted, and how long you’ve spent reading the site.

It kinda weirds me out to have all these stats visible to everyone, especially the reading time. I like to be able to lurk in private! Is it possible to hide some of these from others?

I think I have found it. Go into your profile, and select Preferences, followed by “Interface”. One of the options you can check is:

Hide my public profile and presence features

Hope this helps.


I can relate. Way back during my owner/admin days, I would disable such features whenever possible. I do not enjoy downvotes nor other stats that could take away from the messages.

Perfect, thank you!
