I just found out something odd, If I go to the scouts recommendation page and click on the name of the scout who recommended any particular entry, instead of sending me to that scout's home page it points me at a password protected server smiley - weird

Is this where the bosses keep all their secret information on us? And have you managed to find out my secret swiss bank account number yet? smiley - laugh

just being curious/nosy

I'll get the following:

"We Apologise for the Inconvenience

The following error occurred: You cannot inspect users unless you are logged in as an Editor."


Have you reported it as a bug?

Um... well, this is intentional. Only Scouts should be able to see the Scouts Recommendations page, and as it's effectively an internal tool that we've made visible to Scouts, there might be a link or two that go to tools that only the Editors get to see.

One such tool is the InspectUser tool, which displays user's details (such as whether they have any entries allocated to them if they're a Sub, or which picks they've made if they're a Scout). But that's for Editors only - sorry!

Not a bug, then, but a restriction. smiley - smiley
