A site member wrote to me the other day to tell me they could not view their e-mail address in their member profile. I am pleased to announce that this is now possible. Work on the member profile section has recommenced and over the next few weeks you will see more functions added.

As of today you will be able to see what e-mail address you have used to open your account with. At this time only you can see what your e-mail address is. It is not yet available to anyone else. Once I have finished adding the other planned functions to the member profile page you will be able to choose whether you want to make your e-mail address available (visible) to other members or not though the default setting will be private. Also, only members who are logged in will be able to view e-mail addresses on member profile pages. This is to stop spam robots harvesting them and then flooding your inbox with garbage.

You will also soon be able to update your account information. You will be able to change settings such as your password, e-mail address, home page, forum signature and biography. Please note that these features do take time to implement because the security of them has to be thoroughly tested before being rolled out. Whoa

Lastly, everyone's post count has been updated. I have spent quite some time this weekend manually adding up every member's post count. This was of course after I rolled out a new post counting script across the site - one which I know works at all times. Smile

It's just about time for everyone to get back into collecting and restoring those radios. I am working on a black AWA R29 Radiolette. Unfortunately the cabinet is in very poor condition and it will require a Bakelite expert to get it back to as-new condition, when I get a few bob put aside. An alternative would be to dump the receiver but no chance - not these gems. As I already have a black model I am hoping to get this one restored and then sell or trade it for a walnut one.
