H there,

Thelma is right. It doesn't appear on every computer as I just checked on of our two computers at home.

My membership number appears on the computer using Internet Explorer but I currently on our Mac and there is no bar at the bottom.

And then there are several people with the same board name, i.e. Mary, without anything else, so the number tells others which Mary it is.


Ken2 Report 24 May 2012 20:34

Many thanks for explaining.

I never thoughtof people changing their board names..


Huia Report 23 May 2012 23:03

Ken, some members keep track of people who keep changing their board name, by keeping a list of numbers. It helps them sort out who trouble-makers are.

Huia who always has Huia in her board name even when she changes it.


Ken2 Report 23 May 2012 20:26

All very interesting, but am I missing something?

Why would you want to know your Membership Number?

It's not listed under My Account details so itcan't bethat important - can it?


KathleenBell Report 23 May 2012 16:41

This is a very old thread Deborah.

If you want to know your membership number just hover over your name and look at the bottom left of your screen. Your number is 12802676

I never see the number at the bottom of the screen either.
I left click on someone's name, if sending a message ...and the number is shown in the address bar.

Another way of doing this
Put your cursor on the persons' name
Right click
Press "Properties"
It's the number at the end of the line which says "address (URL)"


Thelma Report 19 Apr 2008 07:26

I think it depends on your computer and what system you are using.
Membership numbers do not show,at the bottom, on my computer.
Click on any name,including your own.
Now left click on the address bar (top of screen) and there it is.


Huia Report 19 Apr 2008 04:19

Well now I know how to do it.
At the very bottom of my screen I have the bar with Start and a lot of other things going across. Above that bar I have another one with an e and Done but when I hover I get the genes address and finishing up with key= and the number of whoever.
Above that comes the slide bar. Does that help you Jen?
(Now I have to find my number when my name comes up on this thread).
edit: I am 673396.


GlitterBaby Report 19 Apr 2008 02:43


Yours is 3528111

When I hover my cursor over your name it show across the bottom of the screen - in my case on a dull light brown background just above my blue bar.

So my number should read
contact_key =1518132


Libby22 Report 19 Apr 2008 02:12

How do you find another member's number please?


Jenxx Report 18 Apr 2008 23:07
