Exclamation User Profiles and Forum Security

We are growing at a decent enough rate now that it's time to start getting organized ......before it's too late.

1 thing in particular - User Profile - LOCATION/CITY

I realize that we all want to maintain a certain level of privacy while on the internet and I have even seen users give excuses such as "I don't want people to know where my car is after they see pics in the Member's Section and come and steal it"

Well folks, you are all in luck. In an attempt to better protect all of our Forum Users, all areas that may or may not contain more personalized and specific user info such as MEMBERS RIDES and THE MARKETPLACE are now secured from lurkers and require a minimum number of posts to access. This was done in an attempt to help security, for instance, to help make sure your cars didn't end up for sale on Kijiji (with pictures and all) without you kowing about it, as we have seen so many times before, on many other forums.

This community is alot tighter than some other out there, or atleast I would like to think so. I can honestly say that there is a maximum of maybe 2 to 3 degrees of seperation between us all, meaning, we all have connections some how, through 1 or 2 people etc, so with that, actual registered members (for the most part) can actually be trusted thanks to the accountability that having common friends etc lays upon you. Everyone has a concience at the end of the day.

So in short, PLEASE.....NO Excuses. SHOW THE CITY YOU LIVE IN.
Not only the Country, or the Province, or the State, or the Hemisphere. That is just NOT acceptable and will be corrected manually by an admin if needeed. What do you have to hide ?

If you don't trust Us, why should we trust you ?

Thanks for getting onboard with that and understanding

Cheers,
Allan

If you just put in a very specific location, whether it be correct or not, they may just believe you and leave you along to begin with.

I figure the area is big enough that they won't come drive every street looking for your car per say, maybe just see that I'm from Vancouver, and go, hey me too! And then dig deeper to find my car.

Hell they could have my address if they like, the car isn't there anyways...

If someone wanted to know where your car was that bad they would post WTB ad's, or buy your shit, then visit the return address. Simple as that...

That completely went over my head...... I didn't understand any of that.

Does that mean it's .......good ?....... or bad ?

Everyone is welcome to do as they wish, but must understand that we do not exist in a consequence free environment.

I like to think of it, as a modified 'Newtons Law Of motion' type of scenario......

Where for every smart-ass action, there is a far-from-equal and most times, 10 fold, reaction BY ME.

Everyone is welcome to roll the dice......just understand that there will be consequences.

Allan,

I was merely pointing out that when there's a will, there's a way.

i.e. you could have "Craterville, The Moon" as your location. But if they want your car, they'll get your car. For example through the means of buying a part off of you and showing up at your return shipping address... or w/e.

As for how I feel about it... Hell that's what insurance is for... Vancouver is a big place. Good luck finding my car, one of many white R32's.

I never grab. They willingly give them up once they see I am a harmless, old, fat guy......... I'm sure I may still yell though.
