Email Address Visibility
« on: May 07, 2011, 06:58:29 AM »
If I'm in a thread I can access a few peoples email addresses including my own.
I have "Hide email address from public?" ticked in Account Related settings.
Can I access my address while viewing any of my posts, just because it's mine?
It seems putting a tick in the "Hide email address from public?" hides it from the public, but not other members.  Is this so?
I've looked at pages while not logged in and no email address show.

No, your email is hidden. I can't view it.
The world's what you create.

even if you have your email address marked as hidden you will still be able to see your OWN email address. 

If you see any other email address that means they don't have theirs marked as hidden.

Thanks for that.

I think the little gold stars look much nicer than those big mod/admin ones .

I think I'll use them if I ever award some one two gold stars and a koala stamp again.

Ya...I think I'm going to do something to change the mod and admin graphics..I like the simple bar I had before.
