  • More details please! Is this your own server, that you can mod and have op on? Or are you wondering if there is any way to connect invisibly to any arbitrary server? Feb 24, 2013 at 18:08

    Considering his avatar, it might be that he wants to troll some servers. If players cant know your online, it'd be perfect if you wanted to grief some building, and then when asked whether or not he/she was there, say "I wasn't online at the time"

  • @Retrosaur I think you'll find that he said that he was the owner of this server, Unless he wants to troll his own server this is highly unlikely...

Yes, via a Bukkit plugin called Vanish No Packet.

What the plugin does is it allows Server Operators defined by the Bukkit OP permission to type /v, or /vanish, doing so will toggle invisibility, and erase that player from the player list when someone presses TAB.

You can also configure it to stop invisible players from being able to break blocks, pick up items or talk.
