    You're disguised on a server for a reason, so players don't know you're there. It should be against the rules to reveal a staff's disguise on a server.

    Well they're incognito for a reason.

    EDIT: I think this shouldn't be a rule but whoever is revealing the disguises is a dick move.

    If it's not a rule, let's say you're watching a rule breaker while disguised so he doesn't know you're there. I just say something like "Oh hey CounterCraftz the new moderator!" That rule breaker is going to fix his behavior so you don't see him break rules, maybe he'll even leave the server. But you know he will be back to break rules, but because I revealed your staff disguise, that rule breaker acted like in innocent angel.

    I agree, staff tend to be ganged up on (at least I do) while on the server so I like to say hidden usually. It hasn't happened yet but I can guess that people doing that would ruin the disguise.

    I usually stay hidden, because people start leaving, (For me, maybe not for you) and start disrespecting.

    I've never found the incognito mode helpful but if it is and you guys want a rule against saying hello to staff that are incog'd that's fine

    I've been thinking about adopting incognito names more frequently, only to unveil myself at times when repercussions need to be given. Some players get freaked out when they know I'm on the servers building those... grotesque aberrations (i.e. catwalk boats, defensive screens). Because of this I frequently become subject to prioritizing and abrasive slack-jaws. Being decent with boat construction sometimes comes with a price, and unfortunately frequent dog-pilings is one of them. :p

    We should remove all VIP things then for staff that are Incog'd so that people don't get confused when they see an unranked person with materials and shit

    Or at the very least assign a randomly generated tag (or the possibility of nothing) to incognito users to further guarantee anonymity. Exiting out of the mode would of course restore the original rank.

    It already removes the tag, but the point I'm making is that if you incognito and then start using materials or pull out the famas people are going to be like "What the fuck?".

    We could equally just give a platinum tag when you incog

    If the staff member wanted an undetectable disguise they would just not use materials...

    I mean the default steam avatar seems a bit too obvious, how about a random generated avatar from the leaderboards?

    I personally find the current incognito system not to my liking. I find that it is too easy to spot staff. The dead giveaway is the Level and cash amounts. Clicking the steam profile only validates it.

    I personally still prefer to multi-log

    I believe adding a complimentary option list for incognito staff should be in order--something that would allow temporary modification of ranking and level, and generation of a fake cash sum.

    I'm not going to code anything else for the incognito for now, just don't use the VIP features, where's the issue here?

    What should the rule be?

    Incognito staff has pros and cons, I personally have not seen any staff hidden or anything [ good job ] Personally I feel we need people to know staff is there, so they dont commit the crime, then again incognito staff help alot in situations like that. So considerably theres lots of things to think about

    The point of incognito mode is to catch people who think no staff are around. Many people won't break the rules when I'm on the server because they know I'm there. but as soon as I leave they start acting up.
