Checked Box = Anonymous / Unchecked Box = Public
• Anonymous posts appear without the member's username.
• CB staff can still view the member's username if needed.
• Everyone in the discussion can chose to be "anonymous" or "public" per post.
• All anonymous posts must be approved by CB staff.
• Feel comfortable talking without any connections to your real identity.

Anonymous posting is only available in this forum...

This is your anonymous test thread... reply now and try it out!​


Try it in both "anonymous" and "public" mode.​

If "All anonymous posts must be approved by CB staff."
Then the fact that;
"CB staff can still view the member's username if needed." makes it not anonymous.
The Check box should say
[_] Post Anonymously (Kinda)

Great job reading!

When the posts are approved… they still show as anonymous. The only person that has the power to see who someone is… is me.

Maybe Facebook should state that too since there are Facebook employees that have the power to view the anonymous posts there too.

I would have to go through a bunch of steps to see who too… really not worth my time.

I honestly thought everything was pretty clearly stated.

Can I suggest that the post anonymously box not be checked off be default? So many threads are now just anon post with anon reply after anon reply; some of those replies I doubt are trying to be anonymous, they're just not looking for the check box to uncheck. It makes for a very odd reading experience

You're probably right that some didn't necessarily care about being anon, but on the other side, I could see people not checking the box, then being surprised/mad/embarassed that their post was not anonymous. I think default anon is safest.
