Real Names

Post by Mid A 15 » Sun Aug 03, 2008 1:17 pm

are now visible to all regardless of whether or not one is logged in.

I'm more than happy for members to access my profile and see my details but do not want everybody to see my details.

I have therefore removed my real name for the moment.

Sorry about this, it's been due to an upgrade to the forum software which I did first thing this morning, and forgot I'd tweaked the code to hide "Real Name" by default.

Will have a play now, and see if I can re-tweak...

Real names are once again visible to all regardless of whether one is logged in or not.....

As I said at the top of the thread I have no problem with members knowing my real name but do not want it displayed to all and sundry.

I have therefore removed it from my profile for the moment.

Once again real names are visible to all whether "guest" or signed in.

I've temporarily removed mine although, ironically, immediately afterwards disclosed it on another thread!

Sorry - will try to remember this one next time - I performed an update to the latest version just before Christmas, and it detected the commented-out line, and reinstated it.
I've amended the code a little better this time, and it'll show the Real Name if logged-in, and not if not.

Hello Julian

Real names are visible to those not logged in following recent updates.

I've therefore "cheated" the compulsory requirement.

I've done the same - my son's going through the assessment process for 2015 entry and while I'm sure it makes no difference I'd hate to think any comments or enquiries I made here might have an effect on the selection process...
