Yes, what Miranda said. :) There's nothing wrong with people posting about missing names or mistakes on the board. At least that way the information is logged, and other users can discuss/back up/refute their claims. Of course, there's less of a chance I'll actually remember to make the change to the database if it's not emailed to me, but I do visit this board once or twice a day, so it is likely I'll see it.
As for the email thing, I'd prefer people not write my address out, in order to reduce the amount of junk mail I receive. (email spiders are programs that traverse the web, collecting any email addresses they come across - the collected addresses are then sold to spammers)
