ok i've been wanting to signup to a musicians forum on her website,but it says your ip address is collected and shown in post. i don't want my ip address show in posts.
If u use a proxy server to make forums post on her website, will that stop my ip address showing up?

Generally yes. Although some proxies put in additional infomration that is sent to a web server that includes the IP Address they were proxying for.

Just check you IP Address on another website after using a proxy.

I think you will find only mods / admin will be able to see your IP address, just like here on PressF1 the mods/admin can see your ip address.

Can you look around the forum?, if you can do you see any other people ip address?
