Post by ah^gao » Wed 12 Oct 2011, 12:08 am

It had been notice that many members post up their email address within the forum to allow other members to contact them. This will generally "attract" spam bots/spiders that crawls through SgB and "collect" these emails.

SgB forum has a good Email function that allows member to interact through their own email account without the hassle of disclosing your email to the other party.

Look through the attached image, which is self-explanatory.

1.) Your email will not be disclose at all thus preventing any possibility of crawlers "collecting" your email through the Forum.

2.) Sender do not know your email address too. They are sending you an email through the Forum scripting function. Your email is still unknown to them till you reply via your own email client or webmail based programs.

When sending email, just look under the member profile or his/her posting for the [Email] button. Image

Click on that button and it will bring you to a email form, which you can write your email to the member.

If you don't see that email button, it means that member didn't turn on his/her email function.

Jen, that is because you are a Newly Registered Member.

Now with 2 approved post, you should see the Image at the bottom of each member's post, IF that member set it on.

Beside VIP Member, no other member has Image function. But I'm looking into it. Probably allow PM function after certain duration or # of quality posting, depending...
