Can't find it anywhere? Can't add anyone

Sorry my comments were to Helen about why she can see MrsComposlite s photos. Not an easy sentence to type smile

I can't see any photos on your profile if that makes you feel any better OP.

It just says you haven't made them public.

Yes, but I still don't understand why no one at MN HQ thought it was important that posters who don't visit their profile page often were aware of this.

No-ones saying it was deliberate but the lack of thought is cavalier to say the least angry

Er, so why when I checked my profile pics a few days ago had some of my photos changed to visible to any mumsnetter? I certainly didn't set them to that. Even ten minutes ago some of them were still showing as visible only to mumsnet mates. I have now changed them to private but will be taking them down because a) there's no point having pictures on there that only I can see, without making them available to all and b) I don't trust your IT settings wrt privacy in the slightest any more.

Thanks ABF - was a bit worried!

On the photos page visible to mumsnet mates only is still a drop down option.

Are they public now?

Hold your horses, folks! We're just checking this out.

It may be that there's been some crossed wires at our end.

We'll post again when we're sure we know what's what.

OK. We definitely DID have crossed wires here at MNHQ.

Turns out that Mumsnet Mates is working and setting your pics to Private or Visible to Mumsnet Mates is working and secure, too.

Huge apols for scaring some of you unnecessarily.

We'll reinstate the link to make folks your Mumsnet Mates as soon as poss.

But, basically, you can rest easy. Your pics are not visible to all unless you have actively set them to be.

Helen, thanks for getting back but after I read this thread this morning, I opened my profile and the layout was different and it looked like my photos were public.

I sent you a report this morning saying that the whole thing looked different and I couldn't see how to delete the photos?

I don't think I'll be bothering with photos anymore.

Can I ask why it looked like your photos were public?

To delete a photo, you just press the Delete button next to the Save button under each photo.

Thanks Helen. Would be nice to have the facility back.

Yep. Have requested it's done as a priority - since we messed up in the first place.

Will let you all know when it's done.

Helen, there was no delete/ save button - it was just the photos, that's what I noticed. I had quite a few photos up, the baby is now 2.4shock . There was no box that said visible to Mumsnet mates etc.

I'm well versed in the My Photos bit - precious third born blush . But the whole page looked wiggy.

Well that's very odd indeed. It's not looking wiggy at all from here. Can you bear to send us a screenshot? And tell us how you're viewing MN (ie phone/app/laptop and with which browser)?

HelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 26-Jun-13 15:27:14

Mumsnet Mates is now back, folks.

Apols again for all the hoohah.

Helen - how can you tell? My profile page isn't public smile

I was using my laptop with Explorer. It's just that if you have a gander over any pms I've sent, of which I think there's been one, you'll see that I had an issue with name changing recently. I just feel a bit uncomfortable with the registration/profile page now.

It's no big thing, never worry.

I meant Profiles are looking fine from here. I'm looking at mine, obviously. Your profile is not clickable/public.

Are you talking about PMs you sent us? I'm not aware that you have - although I can check.

Or am I misunderstanding you? Entirely possible, given my track record today grin

wigglesrock Wed 26-Jun-13 16:04:50

No, I don't know smile . I had an issue with name changing a while back but it was all sorted. This morning I reported my first post on this thread asking how to get rid of my photos as there was no delete button.

I will try and fire up the exceptionally old laptop later and have another look at my page.

My phone doesn't let me do anything that fancy and my only other option is my Kindle Fire and I don't think we will open that particular can of worms.

You've had a hard enough day smile

Thanks Helen for confirming! I'll make sure the pics are set to the right 'security setting'.
