    Can the BYC members that I'm following (a feature in the new BYC) see me following them or is it hidden from them?

    Yeah, I know I'm not a stalker. I am a hidden follower, unless somehow they can tell I'm following them. Can they tell?

    Yes; anyone can look to see who is following them on their profile page, and they can set it so that if someone starts following they will get a notification.

    Okay. Thank you. I suppose if I had one follower then I wouldn't have had to ask this question, huh? Guess I should try to be more entertaining. [​IMG]

    Your profile should show who YOU follow (not who is following you).

    Okay. My profile will not show me the people who follow me.

    But we do get a notification of some sort when someone starts following us, right?

    I went to my profile and clicked on Edit Account Details box at the top and saw this:

    Following Notifications

    Notify me when people follow me

    I started following you. Sonoran Silkies (I also started following her/him.) says you should be able to see who's following you on your Profile page. But you say the Profile page will not show who is following you.

    I am confused, but that's okay. I am happy to wait and see what happens. This is not a complaint.

    So we can stalk silently and not be seen then... :yesss:

    I've never stalked anyone. But I've been told that there are those that stalk me. That's pretty crazy. I'm boring.
