If you wish to change whether your e-mail is hidden from other users (it is hidden by default), you can visit your Profile, select 'Account Related Settings' from the left bar, and check the 'Hide e-mail' box.

When it's on, no one will be able to see your email address, with a couple of exceptions:
  • You will always be able to see your own e-mail address!, but others can't
  • Governors and Admins can see your e-mail, in case they need to contact you outside the forum
  • The site software itself can see your e-mail so that it can send you notifications

We never sell or share your e-mail address.
