Name and Zip code now showing in profile

SarcasmIsBeautySarcasmIsBeauty Posts: 5,640Registered Users
I clicked on the link where it says you have a "like" notification, it took me to my profile. I noticed that information that never used to show is now showing up like your name and zip code. I know I only entered my name and zip code when I wanted to enter into the curly sweepstakes and certainly don't want that displayed on my profile. I've since taken out my name but a zip code is required so I just changed it to a non-zipcode number, is there going to be an option to make it private?

Thanks!

    thats really weird especially since in FAQ it even says not to share that type of information on the boards. i wonder if its a glitch? not a good one though

    Same here, plus my birth date is showing. I have tried to change my settings BACK to Hide it and nothing has changed. This needs to be fixed immediately. Also, the settings have been changed to let Everyone see certain information which I most definitely did not select.

    Why can't I change my OWN information to at least work around this breach of my privacy?

    I had trouble with that too, it took multiple tries and 2 different browsers to change it. At first, I was using Firefox and couldn't make the change, I then used IE, had to change the privacy settings in IE, and only then was I finally able to change my info.

    Also, for anyone who doesn't know how to change their info:

    Go to your user CP (menu bar right under the Welcome & PM box), then on the left hand menu select edit your details, then click on edit email & password, from there you will be able to change your zipcode/name.

    I would like to know this too. I saw this today and I was really concerned. I thought maybe it was something that I was always here but I just miss it. Hopefully they will address this soon so I can change it.


    Thanks for the post OP :thumbleft:
