User disguises (previously anonymous forum)

Andrew Nicols

I've been looking at how we can implement MDL-1071 - Anonymous Forums for a while and have recently started to write-up my notes. I believe that this is a realisable goal and I briefly discussed it at the recent Australian Moot's hackfest.

My intention is to implement this at the context-level so that, in theory, any module, or block can support the feature. Some of the feedback that I received at the hackfest was that this should be renamed as Moodle can never really provide true anonymity - it is always possible in some way to determine a user identity (e.g. logs). As a result, I've suggested the name "User Disguises".

My working notes and summary of the issue (still a work in progress).

Please feel encouraged to raise topics you would like to present / discuss during the meeting. Contact David Mudrák for details.
