    ^ The circle beside my username Kiks52 is appearing as red. Green refers to online, white/clear refers to offline, but what does red mean?

    EDIT: I figured this out literally 2 seconds after posting (by simply hovering over the red circle). Red means that I'm marked as invisible. Got it.

    Oh, I guess it's only visible to me to show that I'm marked as invisible.

    No, it means that you are invisible, and no one can see if you are online or offline.

    Yep, thanks for the clarification.

    I've clearly expressed that I'm marked as invisible now, so I minus well not be.
