OK, this may be a long shot, but I’m wondering if I could have a little more authority over my profile activity steam than just “public” and “private”?
I have always had my activity stream set as private because it feels a little stalker-y to me to let anyone see all of my posts in all conversations I’ve ever participated in. I am OK posting my thoughts in a thread where I know others are participating, and even where I know there are probably lurkers—but at least I know those participants/lurkers are there because they have some sort of interest in the *topic* and they aren’t trying to track me personally. So far, that’s been fine.
However, when someone has tried to figure out how to reach me with a sidebar comment/request, they have had to either post it in an existing (public) Cake thread, or find me on some other social media platform. This is getting to be kind of weird.
So, my work-around idea is to post a simple “Wanna reach me? Try here.” conversation that would show up on my profile activity stream (and essentially wash away in the overall Cake traffic after a few minutes)—but I still want to hide everything else so that would be the only conversation visible to others in my activity stream in my profile page—still public, but just a little less obtrusive.
Is there a way to do this? Or maybe a better way to be accessible for sidebar conversations and still have authority to delete if comments are inappropriate?
