• Welcome to this new upgrade of the site. We are now on a totally different software platform. Many things will be different, and bugs are expected. Certain areas (like downloads and reviews) will take longer to import. As always, please use the Meta Forum for site queries or bug reports. Note that we (the mods and admins) are also learning the new software.
  • The RSS feed for the news page has changed. Use this link. The old one displays the forums, not the news.

"Show your current activity" option is always enabled

In my account's Privacy settings, there's this option:
Show your current activity
This will allow other people to see what page you are currently viewing.
But the page I'm currently viewing is always shown, regardless of this setting. It's displayed on my profile page and when hovering over my avatar next to a post.

Well, that was fun

Maybe it only shows to you? An anybody who’s not an admin or mod double check if they can see what @Len is doing?

Also, it always shows my online status even if the option "Show your online status" is turned off.

So it's specifically showing me what I'm doing? That seems weirdly unnecessary.

Exterminate all rational thought

If it makes you feel better, I rarely know what I'm doing.

But, yeah, you don't have the little green icon showing that you're online, and I can't see what you're up to.
