Note about this mod.

There is something important to be noted that the mod author did not explain on their mod description.

When you delete a private message from the acp of this mod, it also deletes the private message from the user's (who the pm belongs to) inbox. So user's will definitely know someone has been poking about in their private messages due to this.

If you care about being discreet or don't want user's to know you have been monitoring their messages, it's best to note and remember this fact. (This is not a pointing out of the fact for ethical purposes or a discussion thereof, but rather a means to enlighten those who are unaware of said fact.)

A work around should have been created for this, like *delete message only in acp of this mod* and *rescan board for pm's to restore deleted messages for viewing again* or something to that effect.

I know this is a very old mod and that some of the board masters who have this mod may have already discovered the above facts on their own...but this is a heads up for those who don't know this and for those on older versions of phpbb3 considering installing this.

It's better to be educated on the facts first so one can make a more informed decision. ;)

Not saying I condone or not condone anything, also not saying I will use this mod either, just stating the tested fact that was not previously revealed by the mod author. A fact I feel is very important to be aware of before deciding to install or use.

You could put in an extension request and maybe someone will port it for you. :)
