    When user enables private profile status, looking up their posts takes a minimum amount of effort. Minimum effort is still too much effort. Stupid chickenshits make me click and type stuff.

    Code:
    This member limits who may view their full profile.
    Why not add a find-posts link to the pop-up for private users, or better yet -- show the posts regardless when the profile is private?

    When a Codexian sets his profile to private, you are honor bound to not click and type stuff.

    Is this a thing? Noted.

    In most cases I'm looking for some recent message, to repost it or verify.

    When you set your profile as private it should hide all your posts from everyone

    I consider private profiles to be our inmates on death row.
    Mere shells of what they used to be, now all but pampered leeches on their way to the inevitable end.

    B-but someone could write something on their wall (which they can delete) or even see what ratings they received.

    I propose "premanently butthurt" status for anyone setting their profile as private.
    It's just telling it like it is.

  11. Private profiles are a broken feature. A private profile should display some placeholder page in the same style as the profile page (including the overlay with the buttons, like ignore ignore, stalk, etc), but without any personal info.

    We should make a list of all the private profilers and all put them on our ignore list until they revert it.

    I just made my profile private for absolutely no reason whatsoever. Now if someone tries to go to my profile, they're gonna assume it's because of some drama or because I got tired of people writing there (in fact, no one was writing there).

    Controlling people's reactions and emotions like this is just a small part of a long game that will end with DownUnderlord bending the knee, declaring me the new Lord and Master of this Polish MCA fan club...

    Hmmm is there a way to ignore spammers if they don't have posts and are in private? I don't think so...

  15. You want to ignore yourself?

    Also, yes, there is an easy way to do this, but since you're too dumb to figure it out after 4 years of shitposting otc, you don't deserve to know.
