Can moderator see IP address?

Post by GoesOn » Fri Sep 01, 2017 6:35 pm

If they can see, I wonder how to make the IP address not visible to moderators?

Can I ask why you want to hide the ip numbers from people you trust enough to be moderators?

Because it is difficult to hide this function.
Sorry! My English is bat ;) !!!

What are you expecting your moderators to do with an IP address, they change anyway? You can't bring down corporations with an IP address. In any case, as any moderator here will tell you, sometimes the IP address can be a useful thing when tracking down persistent offenders.

Are you going to answer my question or? What I want, what I think about it, you do not have to deal with!

Like Janus and Mick said, this is quite difficult to achieve. If we know why you'd like to do this, there might be alternative solutions that can accomplish something similar. :)

Is it so difficult? I do not know why I ask. Thought that there might be such a feature, but you must be as lost as a child and do not understand that this is a support forum and you are wondering about some things. Have you thought about your eunuck?

And we've (three times now) answered your question that there is no such feature that does that.

Also, insulting people is not going to help you any further with your problem. Please just keep your responses respectful towards other people. If you have a problem with other users, feel free to PM me.

Listen now diligently before you speak! I ask if something was possible with my question, did I do that? Yes, what do I get for answers?

And if you think it's an answer to my question, it's a big damn mistake on you with your like-minded ones. But sure, keep on going, and I'll be able to handle myself from today's wretched game and forum. Hope the money I donated to you will be dead.

I think the fact that a response tells you this is difficult to achieve is quite a direct answer to your question, but there could be a language barrier at work here.

Regardless, this is turning into a discussion topic, and that's not what the support forums are for. As this topic continues to go off-topic, I'll close it now. If you disagree or have any other concerns, then again, feel free to contact me through private messages and I'll gladly discuss this with you.

This is a trial type thing so don't flame me if it isn't what you want. Try setting, in Moderators advanced permissions> Post actions tab> Can view post details, to No.

If that doesn't do what you need I suggest you make an extension request.
