I had to hide the Board Contact Repository - sorry.

Postby KAGU143 » Sat May 16, 2015 9:16 am

This is just to let everybody know that I have decided to return the Board Contact Repository back to the shadows where it has lurked since Apositive first began.
I spent nearly an hour (literally!) looking through my various admin-ly options and it appears that there is no way to prevent the software from automatically displaying a user's personal info whenever they use the "Contact" option on the Portal or at the top of the page instead of joining the site and sending a PM.

That's not good. 8|

In the spirit of "Do unto others" I have chosen to value our contact-ees rights to privacy over our member's rights to know everything that goes on behind the scenes.
I don't think that anybody here would like to have their own email address and IP displayed for all the world to see, so I feel confidant that we would all extend the same courtesy to others if we had that choice.

I wouldn't worry Nancy, anyone who uses this forum knows you do it right and would only do such a thing if needed and when needed :clap:
