Your account settings and email notifications
When you register on Similar Worlds, you are automatically subscribed to the email notifications of its basic features.
However, you may disable some or all notifications via your Account Settings - Email Preferences
On that page, you can edit your account preferences. You may also cancel your account if you no longer wish to use or have access to that particular account on Similar Worlds.
Profiles on Similar Worlds are set, by default, to be visible by everyone, including people who are not registered on Similar Worlds.
This setting can be changed through your Account Settings. You can set your profile visibility to Members only.
If your profile visibility is set to Public, everyone will be able to see your public comments, stories, groups, public photos and other contents that are not private.
Sharing Stories on Similar Worlds
When you share a story (through the forms in the groups), that story will be posted on the group and will be made public.
Sharing Photos on Similar Worlds
The visibility of the photos you upload on your profile depend on the Album you post into. If an Album visibility is set to Friends, the visibility of the photo will be to people on your Friends List only. This also means that updates about that photo (upload or comments) will not appear in the news feed of people who are not on your Friends List.
Always think before you upload a photo. If someone provides the direct link (URL) to a person that is not on your Friends List, that person will be able to see the photo.
If album visibility is set to Everyone, this setting will change its behavior depending on your profile visibility. This means that if your profile visibility is set to Friends, then the photos in the album will be visible by people on your Friends List only.
