Just noticed guests can view member profiles, they shouldn't have the ability to view a members profile by default.

 

Just a heads-up in case you're unaware :^:

Why though? How does it make any difference other than guests not being able to view registered users' profiles?

It's not as if people have any secrets in their profiles, so why not let guests view it. I want to do that sometimes while I'm logged out, so I kinda like it this way...

Lol people and their obsession over "privacy" on an open internet. Don't post it if you don't want people to see it.

Sorry OP but I gotta roll with the majority here, but guys I think he was just bringing it to out attention incase we didn't want it like that and something was screwed up. Just a concerened citizen.

Yeah, profile viewing required registration on the older forums so I guess that's where your suggestion stems from. I don't see a problem with the current setup though. Guests can view whatever they want; if they want to use the features, then they have to register anyways.

Profile Viewing was restricted on the new forums as well around the time it was upgraded.

 

While I preferred it when Guests could not view profiles I don't mind that they can now. As Werebot said, 'It's not as if people have any secrets in their profiles' and as Girish Said ' if they want to use the features, then they have to register anyways.' :^:

They still can't search your posts, you aren't really hiding anything from your guests. You can lists your interests but it is entirely your fault if you state something which you do not wish others to see in the interests page. That section, is after all, optional.

Because profiles should be hidden to guests by default as they're private, any old user can walk into GTAF and see someones profile...

 

It's just a standard forum custom

 

Edit: I can see where you guys are coming from but still it's a thing the old board had.

 

ah push leave it as is if you seem fit :^:
