Yep, I'm guessing it might be filling up however, I have another suggestion:
For sign-in locked profiles, a little locked padlock = "Must be logged in to view" (or something similar).

Thanks for your consideration.

Do you think adding that icon might help "highjackers" to target those classmates who do not have the "padlock" on? Just wondering...

Hmmm! Good thought! You may be right on!

I grew up with a generation that didn't think in terms of hijacking / spamming / hacking, etc. Had not thought about that aspect! Perhaps it is something Brad and the "guys" could consider adding to the "configuration" options!

However, on another thought, when it comes to hijacking, if there is a Missing Classmates page, they could use that to get in. And, if someone REALLY wants to get in, they'll figure out how to do it!

Just my 2 cents worth. Thanks for raising my awareness of the possibility.

New Preferences area will kill hijacking for those Admins who want to enable another level of security. There's a whole thread on that topic of course.

I think the padlock icon would really only have benefit to non Classmates. Any Admin can already make somebody a non visible guest member to get non Classmates in too, if desired. For the most part it's going to be Classamtes who are reading other Clasmates' Profiles. While the lock icon is an interesting idea, my gut feeling on this is there's too much of a good thing regarding these icons. There's something to be said for keeping it simple and keeping it Classmate focused.

Excellent points! Thanks Brad!
