How do I keep my email address from being displayed on the Qs I ask on this support forum?


I posted a Q to this forum and did not know it would display my email address publicly. How do I delete questions, delete my profile, or keep my email address from appearing publicly on Qs I ask? I don't want my email address displayed on here.

Thank you.

place something like "[admin help] username" so it will be noticed by an admin -- they already have your email but they will probably use the private message system here instead -- look for a tiny black box with with a white number next to your inbox in the upper right corner. It would help if you indicated what you wanted for your username perhaps 1st, 2nd, 3rd choice, so they won't have to ask you and won't have to reply for that or to get an already taken.
