Why members list is disabled

Good question there. We've disabled the the member list for several reasons:
First, we wanted to ensure the privacy of the users of the system. The default member list included email addresses listed. We felt this was a big problem and wanted to make sure that it would only be available if the person decided to post their email address.

Second, we wanted to provide the best possible performance of the system. The member list is not the most resource-intensive part of the community, but it does use up a share that we felt could be better used elsewhere.

Finally, the member list on community really serves no true purpose. If you're looking to contact a person who has had a problem similar to one you have, you can click that person within the post and have the opportunity to email them (if they've enabled it for themselves) or send them a private message (again, if they wish to receive them).

PS. I've moved this thread to the InstallShield Community Feedback forum.
