Users should consider changing some settings on the preference tab if they want to interact with the community and be available for others.

Note: I was navigating on a SmartPhone.  Navigating on a computer with a proper browser is much more intuitive.

To get to the Preferences, users have to be in Messages. To get to Messages, when I was in Forums, I used the 3 horizontal lines button to access a menu with Massages as an option. From within Messages, the 2nd tab on the middle of the screen is Preferences. To get back to forums, click on the link (the word "Forums") just below Control Panel toward the top of the screen. This is part of a path showing that the user is in "Forums>Control Panel>Private Messages>Inbox".

Hi Andy,

thanks for adding your skills and knowledge to the mix in this evolving Forum!
You will need patience to relate to people like me who struggle to penetrate teckie issues. This matters a lot to me or i wouldn't be so brave about trying to understand.

I am unable to follow the above instructions beginning with"To get to the Preferences"..  

I wonder if others have the same problem? Perhaps it would be helpful for us to discuss this on the phone and find a more user-friendly way of presenting the same information.

Another question:
What is the meaning & purpose of "private messages are disabled by default"?

much appreciation for your contribution,
sandy

Privacy testing: as a non-registered member, I was able to view a list of user names (so users may not want to use their full names).  I was also able to view the user profile, which, for my profile, included my full name I'd put in (Andy Binning), my email address (binning.andy@gmail.com), and other details.  I was also able to view all the forum posts, and view all posts for a given user.

I would like to see some restrictions setup as to who can view what.  Maybe "News", "Practice Groups" and "Workshops" might be public. The other forums (Empathy Buddies, General, and Administration) should only be visible to logged in users.

User profiles should only be visible to logged in users.
