I made one comment on this Community site. I did not expect to be bothered with different names for me every day starting with visitor then newbie and now beginner !, nor did I expect my information such as IP Address to be on display !.

This is all that is wrong about technology, please in future call me ender, I shall be leaving this load of rubbish which is very much like the new Email system!

Re: Community

The 'ranks' are from experience helping others, based on multiple factors like post count, likes, solutions etc
Your IP address is not on display for members though, I can't see yours and you can't see mine.

How active you are is your choice, I personally enoy it here and help others, I also learn from the techie forum members.

Re: Community

IP addresses are only visible by the forum moderators who work for BT, but its not something that they would look at unless there is a good reason.

Where are you seeing your IP address when viewing this forum?

That is only visible to you, nobody else. To be honest I have never bothered to look at it, as I always know my IP address ad its displayed on my router page.

Issues with BT Email are very common.

Re: Community

When you view your own profile, you can see 'IP Address of Last Visit ', when you look at someone elses profile you can't see that info.
