Re: Legal question

How does that help if they deleted the logs a few min after they made the action?

Re: Legal question

Well we didn't know if it was a common thing to pursue or not. There are no log tracks so our proof is pretty much not there. It's a learning experience. When you delete the logs in the admin panel, are they gone in the file system everywhere or does phpbb software have some redundant copy somewhere?

Re: Legal question

Re: Legal question

I should add that we found only the admin log entry "xyz deleted the log" and an IP# from outside the US. All our members are (supposedly) from the US. I assume, they were using web proxy or tor.

Re: Legal question

Ok thanks! His actions as an admin are on us for making poor life choices. :lol: If we find he was sharing/giving out his login/password to his founder account, and the one who he gave it to used it to fiddle around in the system, are either of them committing a crime? I can't see how, but I could b...

Re: Legal question

Mostly we want to know if an admin who does this, and the admin whom he appointed who made the socks and was taking people off the ban list and other things without the consent of the others or the owners, did anything actually illegal . If it is seriously illegal and maybe worth filing charges over...

I don't know if this is the right forum but here I go... When one of your admins grant admin status to someone, and doesn't ask or consult with the admin/mod staff, and then those new admins start making sock puppets and making them admins.... Is there some legal action we can take? The admin that d...
