New GreaterWrong feature: anti-kibitzer (hides post/​comment author names and karma values)

GreaterWrong now has a new fea­ture (which was once available for the origi­nal Less Wrong):

Anti-kib­itzer mode, which hides the names and karma val­ues of posts and com­ments.

On GreaterWrong, take a look to the right side of the page, and you’ll see this icon:

Anti-kibitzer mode toggle icon

Click it, and it’ll change to this:

Anti-kibitzer mode toggle icon, enabled state

Now the au­thors of posts and com­ments, and all karma val­ues, are hid­den:

Comment, with anti-kibitzer mode enabled

Click the icon again to dis­able. (You’ll be asked if you’re sure you want to dis­able anti-kib­itzer mode. NOTE: You can skip the con­fir­ma­tion prompt by hold­ing the Shift key while click­ing to dis­able.)

Hav­ing the anti-kib­itzer turned on doesn’t in­terfere with any other func­tion­al­ity. You can still post, com­ment, re­ply, vote, click on users’ names to go to their user page (where their name will be obfus­cated), etc. You can turn it on or off at any time.

Your own name, and your own karma val­ues, are not hid­den.

See the origi­nal Less Wrong post about this fea­ture for more dis­cus­sion.
