last visit N/A

Was perusing our member list, wondering about a few members we haven't heard from for some time, and noticed that a few members last visit is listed as "N/A" ... just wondering what N/A means... banned, secret lurking, privileges or some sort of socialist forum control conspiracy?

I can see dates for everyone but now that you've given some examples I see that they are in invisible mode, which is something all users can do in user profile, Edit options.

Too many are in "stealth mode", including mods or ex-mods!

What do they want by becoming "lurkers"?

Invisible mode just means they don't appear online. When they post, their posts are time stamped. Everyone has this option to "run silent, run deep", then "torpedoes away", when you post
