Sadly only the administrator can change that, none of the mods can, the admin gets in occasionally but is very busy so don't hold your breath! I'm awaiting my postcode changed as well...

It is ridiculous displaying peoples postcodes by default. For a forum is supposed to be so security conscious. Recently I hears cyclists homes were targeted. They had been using a website which also displayed their postcode.

I am sure criminals would be more than happy to know the postcode of gun owners. It doesn't take sherlock homes to narrow down a specific house especially if the user has posted any house or vehicle pics.

It states you just need to put the first half of your postcode.

If you had read carefully the instructions, it does say on application that you only need to type in your first part of the your postcode. It will take our site administrator to modify it now you have entered it I'm afraid that our moderators and I cannot adjust that as it is held securely in the server. I don't have the access to that part of the forum management. Nor do our global mods, just the owner/administrator. He will be along sometime to sort it out.

If I could again ask that mine be removed when possible I'd be most grateful.

It will get done. The site mods like myself can’t do it, it has to be the site administrator that changes it.
