Could we show privacy icons in the db_errors search?

In the ordinary search results, you can see little coloured dots next to each name, indicating what privacy level they are at.  Is this something we could introduce into the db_error search results, please?  That way, the searcher would not keep clicking onto profile links, only to find they are in some way private and therefore you can't do anything to them? (like something as simple as adding a missed gender)

Thanks, Mikey.  I did not know that!  Perhaps it might be an idea to move that column over to the left, where the profile's link is?  At the moment, it is all the way over on the right so, unless you know it's there, you don't think to look (and I didn't know it was there).
There are some good bookmarklets out there that let you sort tables.  I'm currently using one called "Sort Table" by Jesse Ruderman.  (Disclaimer, I didn't write this, can't vouch for it, use bookmarklets at your own risk, etc).

That will let you sort the report based on the privacy levels.

Mikey, Don't know what the numbers mean. Is there a list?

A man goes to prison and the first night while he's laying in bed contemplating his situation, he hears someone yell out, "44!" Followed by laughter from the other prisoners.

He thought that was pretty odd, then he heard someone else yell out, "72!" Followed by even more laughter.

"What's going on?" he asked his cellmate.

"Well, we've all heard every joke so many times, we've given them each a number to make it easier."

"Oh," he says, "can I try?"

"Sure, go ahead."

So, he yells out "102!" and the place is dead quiet save for a few groans. Confused, he looks at his cellmate who is just shaking his head.

"Hey, what happened?"

"Well, some people can tell a joke, some people can't."

Prepared error lists are already sorted in descending order by privacy. So opened profiles are on the beginning of the lists.

I could add privacy icon to errors, so it is more obvious.

That would be brilliant - thank you! As long as it is not a nuisance.
Done. Will be online in an hour or two.
You're amazing, Aleš.
looks nice
Thanks you, thank you, thank you! They look terrific.  I was just expecting little coloured dots - but these are a million times better!
