It appears to me that some members in the devzone technical forum have their email addresses exposed by the Nordic site.
For example, in this forum thread
clicking on user name Pablitorun IN THE REPLY takes me to https://devzone.nordicsemi.com/members/pablitorun_4000_gmail.com, suggesting that his/her email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
The user link in my reply is https://devzone.nordicsemi.com/members/rdolf_4000_evluma.com, and my email is email@example.com
Interestingly, some users such as awneil have a non-email link like this: https://devzone.nordicsemi.com/members/awneil
It is also interesting that the user link in the original posting is different from the user link in replies:
https://devzone.nordicsemi.com/members/pablitorun and https://devzone.nordicsemi.com/members/pablitorun_4000_gmail.com respectively.
I hope this is enough information for you to fix this bug.
at least this is how it appears in this particular case.
"Pablitorun" and "Pablitorun" are two different users. Their screen names are the same, but different usernames.In the old devzone, the user named his account "firstname.lastname@example.org".They are most likely migrated from mypage and devzone, and the user never merged the two accounts.But have been using them interchangeably in that thread.telligent translates the "@" to "_4000_".If you check your own threads, you will see that the path in your OP name and your replies, are the same.
It is possible for an admin to change usernames, thus the path.The same was the case in the old devzone, though: Usernames became profile paths.And these names were never requested changed.
I'm not really concerned about other users, that was just an example. But I would prefer that my own email address is not exposed in the forum and the settings page says that my email " is not shared publicly". What do I need to change so that my email address is not exposed with the _4000_ business?
Hi Eivind, I too have a problem with login. I had an account with nordic devzone before 1.5 years and. Now, I cannot access it anymore. It says that my mail id is invalid. I got the mail id from this page: devzone.nordicsemi.com/.../nordicdev
I had quite a few good recognitions with my previous id (nordicdev) and I don't want to lose them. How to reactivate that account again? Thanks.
