Mods, it used to be that when logged in anonymously that members profile would show when they were last logged in non anonymously, now it appears to not show anything, 

I'm not sure what I'm asking here apart from is this how it now is, or am I missing something? if it is the former what is the reasoning, if any? 

No biggie, just curious

Pete, just checked it with own account and yep it is as you say

and yep it is a fairly recent change

I am guessing that the reasoning behind the change is a mix of trying to keep both privacy and factual reporting correct

as in before, if you logged in anonymously the last logged time/date would show but would actually be incorrect

so now this way you get the privacy without the incorrect date?

Thanks Mike, 

A subtle variation, as you say previously the date would be factually incorrect but wouldn't indicate any degree of anonymity, this way of not showing anything suggests the member is anonymous, surely that is contradicting being anonymous?

guess it depends on how you look at it or what you are after

as it indicates that the members last login was anonymous but it doesn't show when it was

which could in theory offer more anonymity as it now wipes out your last visit date

so someone looking at your profile would have no idea of your last visit, yesterday or 6 months ago?
