How can we see all the LQ members


Is there any option to view all the LQ registered people ? If not how can I use search fields to display all members ?
for example I want to know all the people who got "LQ addict" status or "Guru" status.

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/online.php shows the members online (link is at the bottom of the forums list). Don't think there is one for everybody though.

It appears normal users aren't allowed to access that page.

Maybe that should be changed?

Eh, I could really care less, personally, but it seems worth mentioning. I'm sure there are people who would want that functionality.

@XavierP;
I saw that link, But we are not allowed to see that link. So I started this thread.
Is there any problem if we see all the members ? why we are not allowed to see all members?

I tried with search fields, It's doesn't work.

I disagree with the proposal in this thread, and I am writing this quick 'riposte' because it is quicker than subscribing to see if I need to further 'harden' my privacy settings. The reason I say this is because if you google my nim it returns a lot of my posts here on LQ - and I don't want the world and his wife to have access to my details, etc. It is none of their business.

Furthermore, I am not sure that I like the 'visitor messages' function, and in the good old days the 'PM' function was confined to 'Moderators' and 'Contributing Members' only, and was considered a 'perq', now it appears to be open to all. To my mind this is not, primarily, a social site, although I have found most of the members are reasonably sociable. I have met a number of the Mods, and Lord Root, at the LinuxExpo in the UK, and know that they don't add or subtract 'features without reason. Hence I am very happy to abide by their collective wisdom.

Hope this helps.

FWIW, hat page doesn't contain any information that isn't at the bottom of the main forum page, in the Who's Online box.

We only allow one distinct "members" search, and that is by distro.

i can see it just fine and i'm normal user

p.s. vbulletin as with most forum software DOES provide a member list, though i would imagine on this particular forum access is restricted or the feature is disabled alltogeather

It looks like at some point Contributing Members inadvertently had this enabled. As mentioned, it contains absolutely no additional information than is already currently available in the who's online box.
