    We have added an option to the Personal Details section of your user profiles, where you can select your trueCall ownership status. This puts a sign up under your name next to each post (see left), so there need never be confusion who is referring to what version of the hardware. Everybody please set your profile! (click on your name near "inbox" at the top of the page, select "Personal Details", select the description which fits best and then click "save" at the bottom)

    I am gratified by the uptake of this. Thanks all!

    Just a suggestion, would adding the country of use to the Personal Details in the same manner as trueCall ownership
    be a good idea so that we know when one of our community members is UK or non-UK and don't make bad/embarrassing/insulting assumptions.
    ;) And lets not get into the Englishman, Scotsman, Welshman or Irishman(NI) conundrum :duel:

    Good idea db1, but please don't force members to reveal their true country if they don't want. Allow continents or geographical regions, e.g. Western Europe, Northern America...
    I'm asking this, because I learned to never reveal too much information about yourself on the Internet. E.g. Facebook etc. :bangin:

    I hear what you are saying, but surely a county is suitably vague? At least we should be able to identify which telecoms organisation the user is under, in case it is relevant to a technical enquiry.

    Not allowing a new user to promote to Member unless a location is filled in will encourage its use - there's nothing stopping somebody from lying of course.

    I suppose that most members won't mind giving their location.

    Suitably vague? Yes and no. I don't care what trueCall or the NSA & co. know about me. But I mind what Google, Apple, Twitter, Amazon and all these hidden trackers like BlueKai, Quantcast, MediaMind or Klout spy on me, to then supply very sophisticated cross-referenced information to the advertisement industry, which is part of the cold calling problem. And for that I have zero tolerance.

    If the purpose to give your location, is to distinguish if the member is UK or non-UK as db1 suggests, then IMHO, an exception for paranoids like me, to only make the region public should do it.:shh:

    If it's for technical reasons, this minority might give false information.
    Then the whole purpose of knowing the telecoms of the member is futile.
    For guys like me, please allow at least that when entered the true country, that only the region is made public or other sort of compromise.

    Oh yes! I had my location filled in, but diabolo has changed the boxes.

    Glad you said that as I hadn't noticed - have taken a leaf from your book! I had more precise location previously as it doesn't bother me particularly.

    :) They gave me my naturalisation papers years ago! (But I do have a sneaky cheer for the reds when not being watched; well TOH is from Sarff Lunnun!)

    I have relocated the off-topic banter (always welcome) to the Village Pump, but for some reason I can't post in the new topic!

    Sorted now :)

    Nor can I, and I am the one, who allegedly started the thread, actually relocated there, by TC
    and I have another thread there which I genuinely started.
    One for Diabolo I think.
    see the private conversation started by me, with TC and Diabolo added

    Q: does the forum have a setting to force replies to a particular reply post to go to the village pump (or elsewhere), i.e. a replies redirect condition ?

    I agree we all want privacy, the worst cases start with data illegally mined by rogue webcrawlers and that which has been obtained by once-trusted webcrawlers and subsequently releasedillegally without your permission by primary data miners or secondary data miners that you were unaware the data had been passed on to.

    [Reposted/Edited by db1 - put back into original thread as it got accidentally moved to the village pump when conversation went off topic and part relocated.]
