Training Log Privacy on RunnningAHEAD? (Read 399 times)

    ok, I think I got this.....  "keep my running log private" I believe still allows logged in members of RA to view your log (or you can set it up so that only members of your groups or members with a password to your log can view it).  the only option that allows the whole world to view your training log is the "everyone" option....  and it does mean EVERYONE!  and of course you can still make specific workouts private or notes private by checking the little boxes appropriately in each training log entry......

    2014 Schedule

    Jan 11 - Mississippi Blues Half, February 23 - Last Chance for Boston Half, March 9 - Charlotte Speedway Half, March 16 - Heart Mini Half, April 6 - ORRRC Half, May 4 - Flying Pig Full, June 14 - Hatfield & McCoy Full, July 4 - Rocket Man 5K, July 18-19 - Runners for Wellness 24hour Ultra, Sept 21 - HITS Omaha Half, Nov 30 - Space Coast Half

      Oh and if your log is public, don't use the real names of people in your notes (if you write that sort of thing in your notes, like naming other contestants in a race) unless you don't mind that it is searchable by google, as I recently discovered after seeing my running log entry pop up on page 4-5 of a google search under someone's somewhat unique last name, which log entry I then quickly edited.

        I don't think so... doesn't "private" mean nobody can see it?

        Actually, here's an easy way to test that theory -- can you see my log??

            No. You have 4 options:

             

            • Keep my running log private
            • Allow anyone with this password to view my log
            • Only allow members in my groups to view my logs
            • Allow everyone to see my running log

            If you check "keep my running log private" then it's private. It doesn't matter whether it's a logged in user or anyone on the internet: nobody but you can view your log.

             

            The only ways to restrict access to some subset of people is to use the password option or the members in my groups option.

            Runners run.

              +1. The world could give a rat's ass about your training. It's the creeps on RA you need to worry about.

              Runners run.

                Would be cool to block out the area around your home. IE: Strava, it gives you the ability to block the view a mile around your house.

                 

                Makes no difference to me. Someone with to much time on their hands could easily figure out where someone lives without having to look at the map of your latest run from home.

                  Not to mention there are literally hundreds (maybe thousands) of people who already know where I live, know what I look like, and see me running all the time. What are the odds of some random stranger on the internet using my running log to turn into a weirdo stalker versus all the people who sort of know me in real life? In either case, it wouldn't work out too well for them.

                    Agree.  But I suppose women runners would have different concerns than males.  I also find it funny that when people post pictures of their cars they take the time to 'black' out the license plate.  As if people out on the road don't see this every single day but there's something magical about the people who see it on the internet.

                      How many of us here are used to having people in real life telling us that they "saw you running the the other day?" I get it plenty. I've even come across lots of you fake internet people in my training and in just about every damn race. Now that I think of it, you guys are stalking me ... or is it the other way round.

                        Not that there is anything IN my log right now, but I keep the log public, the routes private, except for races, sometimes I will make those routes public.  But my default route setting is private.

                         

                        And my route descriptions are pretty generic.  I dont get too specific, mostly because I am lazy.  "Neighborhood" is pretty much any random route near my house.  "Bad ass hills"  etc.  Sometimes that is a 4 mile route, sometimes that is a 10 mile loop.

                          This seems to work for me too.

                            Yes, you are correct, we do. I have been stalked by an ex-boyfriend. Make no mistake, it is scary.

                              I suppose if I were actually being stalked I would just take my log down completely.  Wait -THAT's it, it isnt that I haven't been running, I just am going all stealth.  That's my excuse for my empty log.
