User List Info

Hello,

 

Is there a way to restrict the visibility of email of the user in the User List you get by typing UL?

I'd like to give lower level Users access to the ID# and Handle but not the other info on the User List.

Some people use their real name in their email but want anonymity on the BBS so I'd like to be able to hide the emails and name etc so only sysop and cosysop have access.

Thanks.

There is a couple of ways. The easiest being just take away User List access from everyone without SysOp access, otherwise, some code would have to be entered into i.UL in order to restrict email from showing. I am sure it would be decently easy.. I will look at it after the holidays to see what code can be modified to not show email..

@bucko great! Thank You!

Been thinking about this now for a few days.. Here is a quick and dirty mod for what you want it to do..

Add to the beginning of line 3064

3064 on-(ac%<9)goto3070: rest of line

 

What this will do is not allow the users email, Name or Access level to be seen by anyone under access level 9 (SysOp) you can change the access level to whatever you want.. 

 

Looking at this file it is definitely in need of a re-write, but is it worth it?? Not many people really look at user lists anymore. I guess if people wanted it it can be done.. 

But that is a down and dirty mod to do what you want.. 🙂

@bucko worked great! as you can see! 

emails not shown UL

Now is there a way to hide the email field when selecting to show regular list where it is asking for criteria before it lists the users?  I was looking in the file and around line 3028/3030 I got lost in variables! 😆 

remove email field

Hmm the routine for displaying the listing is in 3002-3004, its nested in a for/next loop. The only way to remove it would be to remove the Email routines completely, which is something I am not sure we want to do as then even the sysOp couldn't search on Email. We could add in a statement when choosing Email at that prompt, "Reserved For SysOp" and return it to the menu.. Anyone have ideas??

I had that thought also. Just throw in that simple 3 word statement would be enough for them to understand that if they try to search with that email field and are just a user it won't work. I think that is more than enough, as it is based on the amount of "active" call in users then the percentage of those that would even search the UL i think a simple statement is more than enough. Just my $.0
