    I got my PF Mail!!!

    I'll use it as my second instead of hotmailalternateaddress@hotmail.com. I'm Mks because I needed 3+ characters.

    I heart PF!

    Love,
    Mk

    am I the only one who finds it a bit strange that they want to know your home address, phone number, occupation and household income when you sign up?

    :confused: I certainly don't recall that...if they asked for that info, I would have never signed up. Then again, it's entirely possible they did ask for it and I made up some numbers or gave them something from 4 addresses ago. :devil:

    I must be going blind, Wollie, because I don't see it. If "up there" means my toolbar, I have these:

    Are those fields optional or required to sign up?

    MIH, it's an announcement Greg put up. It's above the list of threads within the sub forums.

    Address, full name, DOB, Household income, gender, primary language & Profession among other things are required. Phone number is optional.

    the terms of use say they can share most of that info with 3rd parties (except for name & address, which they can only disclose in certain circumstances.)

    Found it - thank you, Evo.
    Y'know, I thought I had heard of PF mail before, back when I first joined up, and I think once I even went back to find some info on it but couldn't locate anything. I'll check it out.

    I've had mine for a long time now...hardly ever use it though. I've only used it a few times to send files back and forth to other members because they can't be sent via PM (like Brewnog's resume...I think he owes me a drink :biggrin:)
