I believe you may have to contact Martin Sojka director of this site. Just send him a PM and I’m sure he will take care of it, hope this helps.

I believe you just need to go to your home page, click “edit profile” on the upper left side, and remove your address from the location box. You can just put city and state so the workshop map will show your general location, but not precisely where you live.

Sorry, Kirk. On further review….

Go to your workshop page, and there is an “edit” button on the upper right. Click that and you will see where your address is. Just delete any info you do not want to appear.

Hi Kirk, what Charlie said.. go to your workshop page and click on ‘edit’. Then remove the info.

This is just a general warning to everyone. Everyone should watch what they post on the Internet. Everything you post on a forum, every e-mail you send, every Instant Message you send is copied and stored and archived somewhere. Even if you go and erase some comment from somewhere, it has already been saved in that forums backup. Google archives the Internet. No kidding. There are ways to go back years and look at what web sites used to look like.
If you know any kid or teen that uses Facebook or Myspace, you should sit them down and talk to them about their future and what NOT to post on those places. There was just a poll of a bunch of large companies, and 70% of them say they look up Facebook profiles before they hire someone. And 1/3 of the time, they see something on there that makes them not hire the person.
So think twice before you post a picture of you drunk-dancing on a bar in Jamaica :)

No. Just posting a reminder to everyone. It’s just amazing how much personal data people are willing to just give to everyone in the world. I would never think of putting in my address or telephone number on a random public web site. I don’t even do it on Facebook. There is no reason why we should make the job easier for the people who steal identities :) Identity Theft is the #1 Cyber Crime. Not stealing your credit card number when you buy something on the Web, but stealing who you are.
I just threw in the bit about making sure your kids pay attention to what they post because my wife’s Nephew posts things that would make a Sailor blush. Some day that will come back to haunt him.
