Re: It may be goodbye

Is this proper open or are we still not allowed to discuss moderation?

Re: It may be goodbye

bandofbrothers, we do not access private messages. It's technically possible but we do not do it. It's not a unique feature, every forum platform has it. I have never ever seen this feature mentioned in any T&Cs - I've seen quite a few, but by all means, if somebody ever saw it somewhere please point it out.

 

Whenever you create an account, the administrator has access to your data - excluding passwords in most cases as they are generally encrypted.

We are not talking about 'moderation' as that is against the forums T&C's.

 

We are discussing the fact that the Forum Staff/Admin have access to members private messages.

Ok Chiara,

 

One more question and then i'll shut up.

 

If  a member of Admin did access a members private messages would that access be logged ?

Cool, thought I'd ask first! Didn't want to be moded!!

Personally I don't think that Pm's should be accessible whether it's commonplace for the ability to do it or not.

It's a trust thing that is only going to cause issues when situations like this arise.

I'm not sure, would have to check.

 

I'm afraid gillsfankev, it's not an option that can be removed or disabled, it's part of the admin suite. If you feel so uncomfortable, I would strongly recommend not signing up to any online community as they all have this feature.
