I did a google search using my tqs "name" which happens to also be the screen name that I use on other sites. My profile on tqs is set as private. I was surprised when up popped links to two quilts that I had posted in the public quilt gallery along with thumbnails of all the quilts I have posted privately.
Also, my profile avatar popped up although my profile is private. I had set my avatar as a picture of self for a more personal response in the forums. After today, it's back to a quilt.
So, my question is exactly what is kept private when posted on tqs?
