    hey everyone

    as you may know me I play a lot with staff members, and even though they're able to do a /vanish in the lobby it can still cause people to follow them or keep asking them stuff.

    so I was thinking about having a " /disguised " for staff purpose only so they could play and not worry to much about getting questions and getting spammed in chat.

    if they would do /disguised (/d would probably work to) they would have a random name (example: iHuzunizZ) and have a steve/alex skin.

    this would prevent them from being spammed when playing with their friends
    and also it could get rid of players stalking the staff members

    (btw I dont think it should be for donors because there are lots of them and making up about 5000 names isnt nothing then xD)

    I personally think that the /vanish option is enough. Staff members are meant to be answering questions, so I think the disguise option is a little too much. And if they really aren't in the mood to answer questions or being spammed, they could always turn their chat off :p

    The problem with this is, if a staff members is good in PvP (HackersDontWin) and he is disguised, people would record and report him. The other staff members don't know that this guy is HackersDontWin and banning him. On the other side, the system wouldn't recognize the name. :p
    But maybe they can add it for staff and YouTubers. YouTubers get a lot of people stalking them and spamming them aswell.

    /Vanish works fine. Most of the time people don't even realise I'm in their lobby. :p

    I don't really think this is necessary, /vanish seems to work fine and on top of that you can always go to a random lobby, as I'm pretty sure you're usually in lobby 1.

    /Vanish is probably enough it's a good idea and you are right about the spam if there is a staff member online. And it's hard I think (correct me if I'm wrong) to have a random name because MineCraft needs a name when you are going to log in so how can you give them another name besides your actual name?

    Well I have the opinion as everyone here so I think /vanish is enough to hide staff members. -1 sorry

    I think that staff and Youtubers should get a disguise function. I've noticed with playing with both that they get focuses. And focused in most of the games they play. It makes the games very unenjoyable for them. Donators shouldn't as people don't really focus on them as much.

    There is no definitive way to do that, plus it could clog reports with "focuser reports".
