    When I registered and was waiting for the confirmation email, I started clicking around the site and went into many of the menu/drop downs. I found the member list and it was actually growing while I was there.

    Since then, I received the confirmation email and logged in, and now I can't seem to find that list again.

    I'm wondering if this isn't a glitch... people not logged in can see the member list, but those who are logged in can't, OR if it was turned off in the 30 minutes or so it took for the confirmation email to show up.

    I wish I could remember. I may have been in the drop down area where your user id (& drop down box) is now in the upper right hand of the menu bar.

    I was clicking everywhere, so I'm not 100% certain that's where it was.

    Actually we purposely turned that off for the Beta. Two reasons: 1) we are trying to keep things focused on building great quality content. We understand that most if not all members will be coming from other mature travel communities and items such as that can be useful, but we're young and have a goal to be focused on content for the next month. 2) For members of other travel communities, we didn't want to supply too much attention to their offer to help us build content and while individually it is one thing, a long list is another point of comparison that is simply not necessary right now. I think most of these things will be so familiar 6 months from now. Thanks for the question and actually we were not aware that the unregistered could see it. that was not planned.

    Looks like we missed a template change.

    A member list is a default option that we [tried] to remove - for now at least. We might add it back in at some point, and obviously members who are registered but unconfirmed can see it currently. FWIW, there isn't much to see in that section, which is why it was removed. The idea being, keep things as clean as possible.

    Thanks. I just wanted to bring it to your attention in the event it wasn't behaving as you intended.

    I was always jealous of those cool folks in that other forum who were listed as "original member" or "member number 1,263". How do we find our our member number, so we can be cool like that too?

    The Members list is still accessible from the bottom of my Profile page. The button is at the bottom of the page and goes to http://milepoint.com/forums/members/ (amazingly similar to the link for Gargoyle posted above.

    For the third week in a project of this size the whole thing is pretty glitch-free. It's an amazing and incredible job the DevTeam has accomplished. Congrats!

    I'm 95! (funny, I don't feel any older than 55)!

    and I love that fact that "Sunny Florida" in my location took me here.

    dhammer, you need to swap with whomever signed up after Mary, so you can be number 53.

    My member number is also my age. Sadly, it's in dog years or some such scale.
