But are they read? That would be a bit like a peeping Tom, no? I want complete privacy.

Of course you have privacy online.







HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA






I don't know for sure if we can see PMs, but I doubt anyone is interested or has time for it. I certainly don't... well, not until you mentioned it!

Great lol.

Yea, you got me, it was a dumb question lol.

If I were a mod and had access? Yea, I'd probably secretly read them, I have to be honest. Probably more entertaining than the forum lol. Power corrupts, what can I say?

They're only read if the PM is reported, in my experience.

For sure they can read PM's. They know who's dis'ng them privately, pretty sure they can see what you compose also, so don't even think about typing bad stuff in their regard, they can see it b/f you delete it.

They can probably turn your computers camera on and watch you too. They probably won't admit to all the control they have, but beware.

If it is not sent to them, then no.

But PM's can be reported or fwd to them.

Top level Admins can not read PM's not sent to them, but they can see if PM's have been sent.

Ooooo classic burn! Pretty funny man. Pissed that I didn't think of it myself.

You wouldn't want me as a mod, I'd be reading all your PM's!

So some say yes, some say no. Not sure now.

Default Re: Can mods read PM's?

I owned and ran a pretty successful message board for guitarists at one point and I know for sure you could set it up to where all PMs are also posted as new messages in a section nobody else can see.

The guy that was initially running it with me did that without me knowing about it. I had an idea he was doing this, so I tricked him by sending a fake message to another friend. My "partner" guy talked about it right after I sent it. LOL... He wasn't very smart. :)

I had it shut off, because that's a little too over-the-top for me.

Default Re: Can mods read PM's?

I'm shooting for generally no, or if they can, they probably choose not to (or don't have the time). If mod's read all PM's as a matter of course, there's a few ex members who would have been ex much earlier than was the case.

We know all and see all.....however, I don't snoop. Don't have time or interest normally. But if requested we are on it like stink on poop.

You better watch out, you better not shout.

This forum does not use SSL, so anyone with wire access can read PMs as they're being sent.

While I wouldn't get hung up about it, I'd recommend giving proper consideration to anything you post anywhere on the internet regardless of the perceived privacy.

Yea, I'm sure we've got people monitoring this drum forum with packet sniffers and obsessively reading PMs.

Weirdo.

Here, I'll copy the PM into the thread:

[CENSORED BY MODS]

So yea, you can see why he wouldn't want that public! Sorry for outing you, Lar.

Indeed,

If one of the admins is interested, PM me and I'll be happy to assist.

Default Re: Can mods read PM's?

As an Mod then an Admin on 3 previous boards I will say Admins can read sent pms but not those being composed. ( They can, if set up that way, read deleted posts etc and set up threads on the board that only they and mods can see)

How easy it is depends on how the admins have set up the board permissions.
If the board is set up with no pm access then the admins have to set the access / permissions so they can be viewed.

Given the amount of other stuff admins have to do including deleting spam. checking posts etc most Admins lack the time to read PMs unless its needed...say pms between 2 board "combatants" where things are getting out of hand.

As to Mods it depends entirely on their permissions. Mods cant alter permissions like admins and in some cases do not even have the permission to enter the admin section of the board. ( The board control area looks nothing like what you see here in the general section of the board)

Hope that helps !!
