Why are the members called hidden and everything they have is hidden besides when they were active are they all banned?? Last active never users are a funny thing though.

Being "hidden" is a common thing on a forum. It just means that nobody knows it's you when you're online. Sometimes people just don't want to be bothered in the chat when they come to check posts, or sometimes they just don't want people to know how often they're online.

You can change this setting in your control panel by clicking "yes" on "Hide your online status" if you ever wanted to be hidden too.

Banned members don't show up as active because their accounts are inactive. The stats at the bottom only show how many users or guests are logged in.

As Plasma Captain has already stated, users that showup as hidden are those that have chosen to hide their online status.

However it will only hide who they are when sorting the Member List by the default "Last Active" or "Status" time.
So if you sort the list by another type, you can view their profiles and see everything except for their online status and last active time.

As for users that have never been active, those are accounts that have been created and sometimes even activated but never logged into, these will often be pruned after an extended period of time passes.
