So... if this is already a feature, I'm sorry for bringing it up. |D;;

However, I have not found it, so this is my suggestion: a check box for showing the player their anonymous characters when going to edit characters in the Sort Characters page.

For clarification: No... this is not to see other players' anonymous characters, in case that got maybe mixed up. I know the wording is a little weird.

I know everyone has anonymous characters for their own reasons, mine just happen to be more of a "... Well shoot, I don't have this character drawn, but I want to play them -- I'll make them public once I actually have material drawn for them." So... I feel it would just be useful in my case so that I know what characters I would like to work on later in terms of art... but... I'm sure that there are other people that could benefit from sorting out their own anonymous characters through their Dashboard.

This would be more than just adding an 'Anonymous' tag to the character -- since I do know that that is an option, but not one that would be readily considered right away, I think. I mean, I wouldn't really consider it right away personally. At the same time, adding an Anonymous tag that is a custom tag is also perhaps something that would be temporary for someone like me, or does things in a similar fashion.

Just went to my Sort Characters page and all of my anonymous characters showed up without any problems! I don't know why that would be, I didn't click on anything else.

Hm... maybe I still didn't word it right.

I don't mean that they're not showing up. That's not the issue.

I guess it would be "sort Anonymous first / last" or something along the lines of that. Basically, show me the characters I have on anon -- or make it more easy to see at a glance rather than guessing which characters are on anon or not. Like an icon similar to the sexuality/language/violence icons that are available and under the character names.

Or just a feature that is "show anonymous characters only".

OH I understand now I apologize! Yeah, I didn't understand that :P

I would absolutely love this feature. Out of the 55 characters I have, only 9 are public, but I sometimes change this up so I can never quite tell from the Dashboard which ones are set public and which are anonymous. This makes things a lot more tedious when I need characters who are specifically anonymous or public.

Maybe in the right hand sidebar just above the genre/tag list, we can have a checkbox that is labeled 'Anonymous' so that only anonymous characters are displayed, and one saying 'Public' so that only public characters are displayed.

The issue I'd see with a sort order is that you can't tell where the anonymous end and the public start.

This would be fantastic. I usually start my characters as anon until I finish working on them and then set them to public. But sometimes I forget to set them to public afterwards, so it would be nice to be able to see at a glance who I have set as anon

I will definitely consider implementing this feature! Seems useful, not too complicated, and like there really isn't a downside. :)
