is there any confidentiality that a moderator on a forum has to keep?

like, are they in breach of anything if they posted someones details without the users permission?
#6
cuz they are fools.

i just thought thered be some confidentiality stuff that there would be in place so that stuff like this is kept from the general public.

Do moderators even have access to IP adresses? I can only imagine the Russians having those.

I'm almost certain they do. I'm sure they can IP ban, so it'd make sense that they can see the IPs that they're banning.

like email addresses, links to personal profiles, pictures etc
They don't put email addresses in the public space unless you do.

Management of your personal profile is your own business.
If you want it private, make it so. Else it's in the public domain.
Same with any pics you upload.

Nobody is going to tell anyone about your penectomy, your secret is safe with the mods

I thought about that, but then I thought that if it was something serious enough to get IP banned then maybe it would fall into an admin's hands.


Daytripper, can you enlighten us?

They can see the IP addresses. They post them in the FotB all the time when someone starts to complain about not being a multi and they want proof.

Ahh, Thank you. You see, I've never had the pleasure of going to the FoTB so I'm a little ignorant on the subject.

Each forum on the net will have different rules/guidelines.

Im 69% sure that mods could post my IP address as well as naked pictures of me I didn't even know existed right now if they really wanted.
Goodness gracious me!

Carmel could. She can ban you from your own forum.....
#23
I don't have access to any details really. I can get your IP and that's about it. Smods and admins can see your email. I'm assuming admins have access to any of the information you gave when registering for the site.

But I'm pretty sure there is nothing stating that I can't post things about you.
#24
I never did because that would be a douchebag move, really...

As for posting stuff about the users. I remember Cas made a thread about some kid who posted his pic and got banned and everyone drew pictures of penis's on that dudes face.

So yeah, dont piss of the UG staff lol.
Most of the important things


in the world have been accomplished


by people who have kept on

Can you mess about with signatures?

I had hours of fun editing people's signatures on another forum, just putting in little messages. Until they told me to behave myself

Regular mods can't. Smods and admins can change sigs, avatars, user titles, etc.

I remember someone got into a "drunken bar fight" with a mod in the FOTB and lost a letter of his username in the brawl. I think it is still gone too.

Mr. French changed Duncang's name to a7x*something really long* awhile ago. Always messed up the forum layout.

It wasn't that long ago when Carmel lost the "l" at the end of her name. That's pretty insignificant though.
