Hi Jazz and welcome to the forums.
although I ticked to hide my email address, I have an envelope marked by my name on the members' list.
OF is correct in that the forum will always display your own email address
despite others not being able to see it.
Ive double checked and can confirm that yours is hidden.
I can see the adresses of "Jeremy" (next line to mine in member list) and also "ja2737" which shows on the same page on the members lists. I can also see a number on other pages. It may be that they opted to have their email addresses shown.
Thanks for bringing to my attention.
Ive just created a test account to make sure that all is working correctly during the signup process and as long as you tick the check box to hide email it is.
BUT what I have noticed is that the mod that I previously applied"Ive also implemented a small hack so that in future the checkbox is ticked by default."
seems to have been overwritten when I did an SMF upgrade patch a few weeks back.
I dont have time right now to do anything about it since I have to go out pretty soon... but later on this evening I will re-do the hack so that the checkbox is ticked by default and tonight I'll also run a script on the database so that everyones email addy is hidden from view regardless or not if they elected to display it.
Just to re-confirm that as long as you ticked the checkbox to hide your mail address then your email address is hidden from view.
