so when I try to look at a member's profile, I get this...Many apologies, but you can't view just any profile.wtf?
is there a way to see a member's previous posts without going to their profile?

There's no garauntee of getting a list of every post that way as you have to enter keywords (2 char. minimum) on which to search.
nope, no problems...it means what it means, "you can't view just any profile"....only the Administrator, the Moderator and Golden Eagle members may view member's profiles, sorry. If there is information you need about a particular member, I suggest you contact the member directly, otherwise, you can view member profile information, ie., homepage, yahoo id, etc. from the member profile avatar space to the left of this message.
So why can't I get someone's e-mail if its provided next to the avatar space? I provided my e-mail, and I can't even see my own e-mail address? I'm a Golden Eagle too.

I'm a Golden Eagle too. I have no idea what the current status is for emailing other members, as that's "beyond my domain". And technically, noone other than myself and Vista Grande have access to members' email addresses. The email button merely sends the other member an email on your behalf with your email address set as the reply-to address... or at least I think that's how it currently works...
The ability to view member profiles and send email has been restored. Hopefully if everyone behaves we won't have to disable it again.Remember, in order for someone to be able to email you, the "Hide email address from public" box must be un-checked in your profile settings. And yes, that description is not accurate, as your email is visible only to the administrators/moderator (that's me and Vista Grande). When you use that feature to send someone email, they will receive it from bigbendchat.com with your email address listed as the return address. Just be sure and reply to the actual sender instead of firstname.lastname@example.org.
