    Depends on the version of ICQ to some degree. It should always show in your profile, but I also think the newest version shows the number in the taskbar when ICQ is open. Of course this adsumes that you have a number to display. I think the download and signing up for a number are different aspects of getting it working.

    I generally just let the mouse hover over the icon in the bottom right corner of the task bar if you're signed in.

    Not stupid at all. Everyone, including myself, forgets things.

    Look for your profile.

    EG: (On my ICQ) TOP, LH side under the ICQ FLOWER, is your image or lack of image:
    Mouse over that image .. you get a menu but IGNOR the MENU. Instead ...

    CLICK on your IMAGE (or where your image would be) RH or LH CLICK _ either will birng up Your PROFILE.

    Your PROFILE has your ICQ Number on it.

    That's why my City and State is listed as Luna, Malas. :D I did put my birthdate because I LOVE getting birthday wishes. I suppose I should really show the date I entered this version of Britannia. That would be more appropriate I guess.

    It is not just that info, it is all info you send through ICQ even your chats falls under this, is all I am saying.

    I do understand what you are saying Frodo. Everyone needs to understand and be more careful with what they talk about/share online, rather it's ICQ, Google Talk, YIM, Facebook or whatever. That stuff is out there forever. For me, ICQ is my "courier" for communicating with folks in the land of Britannia. So I'm probably confusing those Russians if they are listening. *chuckles*

    Just having a computer and serfing the internet exposes you to all kinds of abuse.

    Recently I had to upgrade the system for cable services and couldn't, after reading their Policy, prevent them from giving my information away even though there was a sentence which read: Click to click here to unsubscribe (or to make changes and control how the information you supplied could be used). That Link DID NOT WORK. First, I had to subscribe to their special 'MyAccount' and supply the cable company again with my name/address/account number/e-mail address, which was only way to click on the word here to stop the company from giving away all my account information and ID. That came a bit TOO LATE. MyAccount INFO automatically went immediately to other marketing companies before getting a chance to control my account info .. because suddenly my e-mail started receiving abundant unwanted spam E-mails which I had to block.

    That goes for ICQ too. For a long time I was getting the worst type of messages from Russian offers of sexual services. Some of those ICQ messages were the result of contact-lists from obsolete ICQ accounts and I began receiving messages from old friends who no longer owned their ICQ Accounts.

    There is no way to protect yourself in this cyber environment. Be careful about volunteering information. ICQ has improved somewhat. I use it to converse with friends in UO only but I will never trust ICQ again.

    It is not just that info I am talking about. You are chatting back and forth with another ICQ member, that chat, if they want to, now belongs to ICQ. Anything you send over ICQ if they want it you no longer have the rights to it. So as a UO member lets say you send your Username and password to a friend using ICQ by thier law/useragreement they, if they so desire, now own it.
    Your chat window is thiers not yours. This is the major thing that people have been trying to warn others about ICQ now.

    Thanks Lord Frodo. I do understand. Just wish there were someway to combat privacy invasion.
    Even UHall probably owns every word we write in here.

    Years Ago, in order to correspond with a dying friend, I joined facebook and because of privacy issues, quit FACE BOOK when my friend died. Recently, Facebook, amongst hundreds of other e-mails, (*blocked) sent e-mails advising that a friend is trying to contact me. That friend has been deceased for the past three years.

    I know a lot of what I wrote is Off Topic, but between ICQ owning every word you post and everything coming at us from every direction.. is anything on the internet safe .. including trying to pay for UO accounts? lol
