Welcome Home...THANK YOU FOR BEING A PART OF OUR COMMUNITY

I admit it.  I currently belong to 16 groups in iKC.  To my surprise I had only clicked the "like" button in 10 of those groups.  I've belonged to the Swiss Army Knife Group for well over a year and never clicked the "like" button.  Shame on me!.  I have rectified that problem.  I have now clicked the Like Button in every group I've joined. Why did I do?  Simply to let the owner of the group know I appreciate that he was willing enough to create and maintain a group!

If you join a group, please consider clicking the like button.  It's fast, it's easy, it's free.  And let the the person who created the group know that even if you're not going to contribute with a multitude of posts you are thankful that someone was thoughtful enough to create such a group.

And if you're the administrator of a group, consider sending out a friend request to any members who join your group. It's a nice way of saying thank you for taking the time to join my group and being part of the iKC community.  This is also fast, easy, and free!

I "like" your post Steve. LOL!

Heyyyy...we need knife games that we can spam invites for!! LOL. Just kidding. The format is not so much "like facebook"  as it is showing many Facebook aspects and attributes. Some don't like their content being put on FB, Tweeter or whatever other Social Media crazes there are. A lot of older folks still fear those things, for lack of a better word, and will avoid the site because they have no control over what of their posts and content gets Shared, regardless of whether they want it shared or not. Some folks would feel better if they could choose *not* to have random people put their stuff up on social media sites. I think we could salvage many people if we had a setting you could set to not allow your content to be shared socially. Personal preference and all. We spend a lot of time making this site acceptable to the younger crowd and adding all these links and such...maybe we should see if we can appeal to those folks who want at least an option whether or not they want Facebook, Tweet or whatever exposure. A slider switch on your My Page giving you a choice on sharing your content would be a great idea, in my opinion. Most would not use it, but there are those who would, and at least that gives them a choice and a bit of control over their content.

Just throwing out some ideas here.

What a hoot!!   Do you know how I search for stuff on Blade Forums and AAPK?    I don't!  I google the topic and add Bladeforums and AAPK in the search query!   If you put it on the internet your privacy is shot to hell!

Quite frankly I find that easier than using their goofy search engine.  And guess what?  You don't have to be a member to see/read the results.

Manx,

WOW, I had not thought about that...honestly.  Can anyone answer me the question do you have the option to make your "my page" private.  If you do that does it prevent the photos you post there not able to be shared?  It is a thought and I will try it with the test profile this weekend!

Looks like there are limited privacy settings.

Thing is that if someone really wants to share something, all they need to do is copy the URL and then past it to social media, all without using the share button.  Also, if a photo can be seen, it can be copied, saved and then re-posted.  

BTW, if you post photos, make sure the GPS location settings are off.  It prevents others from tracking you by using your photos.

yes been there a sittin all along!

While privacy is available to some degree..not posting on iKC is not allowed. Just to distinguish the two!  So you might say choose to be private but posting in groups or chatting or liking a picture is needed! Worst thing you can do is join and not do anything...my advice do that on those other guys!

See's like quite a waste also, hiding photos and all. Isn't that what we joined up for, to be with like minded folks.
