Title: Is my e-mail address is visible to the public?
Post by: srndpt0507 on March 02, 2007, 07:43:50 AM
My email reflects "hidden" on bpdfamily when I look at my profile; however, when I look at my profile on face the facts it is showing. I have the checkbox filled in to hide it from the public but I can still see it.  Is that b/c I'm viewing my own account or is it still viewable to all?

The default here is hidden email addresses.

You can select to make it visible, but we recommend against that.

I looked at your profile SRNPDT and it shows that your email address is hidden. You can see (obviously - you may need to edit it). The rest of us can't.

Exactly!

You have to be able to see it on your own memberships account so that you can enter it and edit it!

sumtin, only you can see your own email if you are logged in, but nobody else can see your email.  

I just checked, I looked at your profile and at your info in the member list, and I cannot see your email. I see what PDQ sees. "Hidden"

Only active members with posting history can see your profile. Not the public. Not even newbies.

We check the member list about once a month for visible email addresses and make them invisible unless a member asks us not to.

I would like to assure you that even though you can see your own e-mail address, others are unable to view it. When you look at your own account the address will be in italics - and this means it is hidden.  :)
