Ability to shows requests to other users, but hide "Requested By"
No votes left
Currently we can hide an entire request from other users, or show them to other users. It would be nice to have an option where requests are shown to other users, but who requested them is hidden and the requests are anonymized.

Yeah, it would be great to have this option.
i really want that too
FWIW This is a spectacular Idea for my users! They often ask about what is in the pipeline, but I'm hesitant to allow them to see the queue for exactly this reason, there's no need to out that Aunt Mandie is the one requesting all the schoolgirl Anime.
Great feature. I too have users wanting to know if things have been queued up.
So in essence a way to have voting enabled while still keeping requests 'anonymous' to other users? Seems like this could be accomplished with an adjustment to how two settings work - the "voting" and "do not show requests to other users" options. If both ticked, show "the request for x has 4 votes" but not who from sort of thing.
As a workaround, you can utilize the alias field in each user's profile to accomplish anonymity on the Requested page. I use initials so all of my requests say requested by AB, CD, EF, etc., You could make them all say Anonymous or whatever else you would like.
@Berserkir-Wolf, this feature request is technically separate from "voting". I like this idea purely because I'd like people to see what has been requested, but don't want to show all users on my server the list of people who have access to my server as well. With divorced parents who get triggered *just* by seeing any reference to the person they divorced, this would be a nice obfuscation that leads to peace an harmony on my weekly check-in phone calls.
