    I believe I read that enabling vCard is required to use the FS/FT forum.

    I have provided a valid e-mail address for the FS/FT forum in my profile, but the e-mail address I registered with here on AT is NOT that same e-mail address. If I enable the vCard, does that send my provided FS/FT e-mail, or the one I registered on AT with?

    I'd rather not share the e-mail address I registered on AT with, as it's tied into other accounts, and I guess I'm a little paranoid about people having it without me approving first.

    Vcard has nothing to do with it.
    It's under "Edit Your Details", near the bottom

    Oh, I read it backwards.
    Your Vcard has the email you have listed in your profile under Email and Password.

    Yes, the vcard will download your registration email address.

    The only way around what you would like to do is to change your registration email address to the FS/T address.

    But I mean, vcard download being a requirement of FS/FT is new, right? It wasn't instated in 2009. Last I knew, the only requirement was 25 posts, and having an e-mail listed for FS/FT in your profile, and making that public. Which I did.

    Do I have to enable this vcard crap now?

    You were supposed to enable it when we went to vBulletin. The sticky explaining how to do it and that it is a requirement is here and has been there since 4/2010 (and there was a thread about it before that one if I recall correctly.)
