You don't need to be sorry. Why?
I'm not upset with you.

I wasn't talking about the member list, but about general forum stats you can get to when clicking this icon, was there a function in there with a member list ? I really don't remember ever seing a member list like the one Tech showed ...

This is what i am talking about ...

When you click that icon you get a permissions error. So all stats would appear to be buttoned down.

So it would appear it's buttoned down for everybody. Interesting, so the general forum statistics poses a security risk aswell ?? Or is there another reason for making it inaccessible ? Just wondering.

Can any alwil software member explain in clear details why it is such a problem that the public has access to the list of the forum members as well as their post counts ?

Thanks

You can also ask this question from the other side. Why should anybody except Alwil team have such info? (And for example get easily the list of public emails from one place?)

I agree that there technicaly is no need for anyone but Alwil to have access to this information, however we are coming to a world where users (people) like to have lots of information; this was encouraged by the internet. So even thought there is no need for people to see those lists and stats in their rightful mind people want to know that if they want to they can go ahead and check that list. So it seems that there are no advantages to make that list available but there doesn't seem to be any disadvantages either, so why doesn't alwil want to give its loyal users the freedom to consult if needed that lists ? I requires a alwil to spare just a few minutes and would end this settlement as well as make a lot of users happy and wouldn't cost anything more then just clicks.  :)

If everyone did a favor to one person in the whole world everyday then the world would be a better place, do your daily favor and except that favor to be returned  :)

There are people and people... The old avast users aren't just people. That is what bothers me.
That was useful a lot of times, I mean, to have the statistics. Sometimes you want to IM some Evangelists and don't have to look for their forum names just to send an IM.

The same could be said for the Off-Topic forum but, that's not happening either.  :'(

So if i understood you correctly the public was able to see the members emails in the forum stats ? If that's the case then yes i understand why you closed the forum stats(and i am talking about the general forum stats here not the member list), i really wouldn't like my e-mail address where everyone can see it.

But i remember i had the ability to view the forum stats from when i first joined this forum(that's about 3 yrs ago) and i really got used to having those options there. Naturally i wondered why take this option away after all this time. Why didn't you just disable it in the first place ?
