FAQ: My hidden e-mail address is public!
« on: October 04, 2006, 16:10:05 »
All,

In a recent upgrade to the forums, the way hidden e-mail addresses are displayed changed slightly.

Please note that hidden e-mail addresses are, and have always been hidden from public view.

The change is that previously, if you had elected to hide your e-mail address, it was not shown at all when you viewed your own profile. After the upgrade, hidden e-mail addresses were displayed to the profile owner, but in italics. If your address appears in your profile in italics, it is hidden from other users. (You can log out and view your profile or your posts to verify this.)

Hopefully this clears up any confusion.


Cheers
Mike

Not to contradict you, O great leader, but if you log out, you won't be able to see your own, or anyone else's, profile. :)
My posts are my opinion alone and do not reflect any other person or group's opinion... because you can't handle the truth, and deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me to say these things.

Touche... You'll have to limit yourself to viewing your own posts in that case. :)
