I just have myself hidden because I don't like the idea of people seeing where I am on the site I guess, not that it even matters. Or I'm worried someone will see me online and wonder why I haven't replied to them or something. XD I don't have much of a reason, I just leave it the way it is.

Idk tbh
I guess it has a lot to do with my severe anxiety
And I think its just habit
If a site gives me the option to be hidden I do it
I've been like that for years

I used to be hidden so people wouldn't see me on their topics and wonder why I didn't post after i left the topic
And also to stalk my own art threads to see if anyone was viewing
i dont really care anymore though

I go hidden when I go through severe cases of depression, so people know I don't want to be bothered, but I'm usually not hidden.

I sometimes hide, sometimes don't. I used to be on hide all the time, but now I'm not because I want everyone to know I am active

Right now, I don’t really want to be bothered. So I guess that’s a reason.

I don't really bother with hiding. I get all my replies to threads I care about in my email anyways and typcally keep up with the site that way.

I think most people choose to go hidden in order for privacy reasons. Sometimes it's nice to not be bothered. Also it can help you avoid situations you may not want to encounter on certain days.
I respect people who decide to remain hidden. Personal space is a welcome right for everyone.
