Private Message Logs/admin

Post by Stevish »

I was poking around in the SQL database, and noticed that all the private messages are listed there. So I assume there would be a way to log them in a way that is a little bit easier to manage.

Basically I want a MOD that would store all PMs in an easy-to-retrieve format. Even one that simply lists them is fine. Any ideas?

^^^

that is the hack your looking for.

however.

it is an invision of privacy to read PMs without consent. you should only read them if a member complains so that you can stop "bullying" on your forum.

See... I thought it was important to be able to prove which users are actually abusing the PM system... instead of having it be one user's word vs another... that's kinda silly to me.

Thanks. I have already implimented very strict guidelines on who is allowed access, and under what circumstances.

It seems that all the larger boards (and online games) that have a private message system have access to view the messages for the purpose of investigating abuse. It's just a matter of including that in your privacy policy.

You can view the contents of PMs by simply looking in the database. All this MOD does is simplify the process.

No words are more true if you are sincere about privacy.

Off the top of my head (mine is worded a bit more strong than a general notice)...
This site has enhanced capabilities to investigate claims of abuse in other-than-public areas. These features are utilized only in the event of a claim made to the moderators or administrators of the site. If harassment is found in these areas your account may be suspended/banned.
