Looking at my own profile and the edit profile form, it isn't really clear to me which data will be publicly displayed/visible to registered users/visible to mods and which won't.
When I look at users who have recently been awarded the Autobiographer badge, I can only see name, member for, seen, website, location and age.
Here's a few points that could help in this matter:
- On "my own profile", display a little lock symbol (e.g. this) next to entries that are only visible to me (or mods).
- On the edit profile page,
- make note of the use of the data put in next to the field, e.g. tell the user that the birthday will not be displayed, but used to calculate the age, the e-mail-address won't be shown and only used for certain purposes (which should be named?)
- sort the fields in "public" and "private".
- In the Autobiographer badge description, clarify if a field like "real name" needs to be filled in in order to get the badge.
