Change Profile Settings to Privacy Settings

This is a follow-up to #5352.

I only just discovered the feature at #5352 and found it to be a great addition. however, after using it a few times, I think that using the word Profile is a little confusing and not obvious as to what the user will find.

I know the discussion has already been completed, but I'd like to re-open it and suggest the use of the word Privacy instead.

I spent some time using it, and after putting hands and eyes onto it, it is not intuitive what Profile settings are (since we already have a Profile page). They are not profile settings anyhow, they are privacy settings.

An additional thought, which may need a new ticket, would be to have the change links on the profile -> edit page link to the privacy settings page instead of opening up the radio box selector to change the setting for that individual field. From a UX perspective, if you want to change privacy settings on the fields, it is perhaps better acheived from the new master settings page you have created instead of individual on the fields themselve.

  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to 2.1
  • Type changed from defect (bug) to enhancement

Sounds reasonable. Not sure if we'll get time to look at for the 2.1 release unless it's something you're interested in contributing to, but I'll put it in that milestone for now.

If contributing sounds interesting, we're more than happy to help get you started and set up, and be on hand to answer any questions; best place to start would be attending one of our weekly dev chats (if the time works for you?) and introduce yourself. Date/time/place details are detailed on the top-right of this site:

"Privacy" isn't the correct word here. I'd be OK with using "Profile Visibility" -- what do you think, @Prometheus Fire?

In 9167:

Settings: rename the member/settings subnav tab name from "Profile" to "Profile Visibility".

The new name clarifies what the purpose of this subnav screen is; that is, to manage profile fields' visibility.

Fixes #5599, props tharsheblows
