|TL;DR: Consider listing your contact details in your HN profile!|
There are lots of interesting conversations happening here on HN. But sometimes people might want to continue the discussions even after threads fall of the front page.
Have you considered listing your contact details on HN so that people can get in touch with you more easily?
If you want to do that, please note that it’s not enough to fill in the email field on your profile. Only the HN admins can see that field.
If you want others to see your e-mail address etc, you need to explicitly put it in the about text area.
Some members want to keep a low profile and I certainly respect that. But please consider what you might be missing. There’s also no requirement to use your main e-mail address. One could also use an alternative e-mail in order to stay pseudonymous.
There are just so many interesting people here so I thought that one might not want to miss out on all interesting connections that could occur. For example, interesting job offers are not uncommon here.
Just my 2¢ though, do what thou wilt. Peace!
