Guests being able to see IM requst thread?
« on: July 07, 2009, 09:47:49 PM »
I was looking at the people online where it shows what everyone one is doing. One of the guests it said was looking at the IM request thread. I thought that it was a private thread?

It is public, everything in the left column is. Your IMs should be in your profile. If you have another IM program that isn't represented, ask me and I can add the field.

Yeah but isn't it against the rules to post your IM's. I thought it was or did the rules change?

You're IM info can be in your profile.  And if I'm not mistaken you can post the IM info in a non-public place but in the public side of the forum you cannot because unapproveds and guests can see it.

That's in the public.  You're not sposed to post your IM info.  If your partner needs it it's in your profile or you can PM it to them.

They shouldn't be, if they do it needs to be reported to a mod.  But no problem.

Right. For one, it attracts spambots. For two, as Elliquiy grows... we already attract the attention of a thousand people a day. Once it gets to be two, three, ten thousand, public IM info is just inviting trouble. I hate having to track down harassment issues like that as it is.
