    I think it would be a great idea to display IPs next to a member's name. Not that it means much, but still...

    What do you think?

    I think it would be great.. though I'm not sure if vbulletin has the function
    built in.. I'm sure someone somewhere has probably created a mod to do it
    though.

    Why?

    To make it much harder for folks to secretly use multiple screen names.. and to
    make it harder to misrepresent where you are..

    360 and Brother SkuderJaymes ... i believe this is the first time i've spoke to either of you in a discussion ... so let me welcome you both and thank you for joining us.

    In this community, everyone decides for themselves what part of their identity, business, etc., they choose to make public.

    While we do have access to IP addresses, we have never considered revealing this information to anyone.

    Fortunately though, there is a way that your goals can be achieved ... and you all can lead the way! :toast:

    Those interested in taking part in your suggestion can go to this address ... http://www.myipaddress.com ... and it will provide their IP address.

    Then, like you all ... they can post their IP right in this thread ... with yours.

    This option leaves everyone in control of what they want to share, which is how we live.

    Whatcha think? Are you willing to lead the way for us?

    Much Love and Peace.

    :heart:

    Destee

    In the Spirit of Sankofa and Truth!




    Why is this such an issue for you, 360?,

    Continual posting of the same thread issue, even after Sister Destee made a decision, or asked for participation.
