Having nicknames is useful for searching, but I don't want to display them. There should be an option to not display them.

    Interestingly, PRIVACY restrictions on NICK are not obeyed by PGV as it is a FACT in the listing which should be able to be hidden GLOBALLY, but it is not.

    Thats an interesting point Stephen. My apologies Tim. I had forgotten about the option to use Privacy to hide FACTS.

    That might suggest this is a bug rather than a Feature Request? But if it DID work, would making all nicknames private also prevent them being used in searches?

    Privacy rules are applied to search results, so if it is private, you cannot search on it.

    Not displaying them would make it hard to enter or edit them.

    I'm not sure how such a feature would work.
