Anonymous Participation


#1

Given the move to a private-by-default setting, where people can opt into a public presence here… And the fact that CityStrides has a fun friendly competition aspect within each city…

Perhaps we need an ‘anonymous participation’ mode, where no specific information is shared about yourself (no name, no streets progressed/completed, no city participation list, no map information, etc). Instead, only general information is shared (number of streets completed, percentage of city completed, etc) through either a generalized name (‘Anonymous Runner’, ‘Strider’, or something) … or I can get fancy and auto-generate names, or allow people to set public pseudonyms or something…

To the folks out there with private accounts, does this sound like something you would use?
To everyone, do you have opinions on the specific details above … other ideas, etc?
