    Can I ask how private is a PM that's sent and who can actually read the contents of a PM sent between members.

    To set your mind at rest, the moderators can't see anything personal.
    The only rights available are more about 'housekeeping' of threads and posts... moving, merging, closing and deleting.

    I presume/hope PMs are encrypted.
    A member recently had a problem logging on, and because Phil was unable to access the encrypted password, he had to close and re-open the account with a temporary password for the member.

    And the same would be true of Admin as well (in case anyone is taking Trev seriously there!). The only way without signifcant trawling through databases for an Admin to read a personal PM would be to logon to that users account - and to do that they would need to know the password - or change it. and once changed, the account owner would know something is wrong as they could no longer log on with their old password.

    (I have run a few forums and have come across the same question numerous times)

    Only the members involved in the PM can read it through the VBulletin system. There is no feature to allow Admins or Moderators to read them.

    I could change your password and log into your account to read them, but only I can do that.

    If you have email notifications turned on then a copy of the PM will be sent to your email address. If you reply to that email (even though it warns you not to) the reply will come to me.

    The people who are able to move/delete/edit threads and posts are:

    Admin

    barryd
    Edina
    Minisorella
    POI Admin
    Robmac
    yorkslass

    Only I can hard delete items, anything that the team do is logged and has a history that I can revert to.

    Thank you Phil for the heads up. In order to avoid any further confusion I do think that the moderators should have it shown by their avatar, then thicko's like me will not be tempted to throw all of their toys out of the pram when it appears that a forum member has interfered with a posting
    Let the fun be-gin

    How come Seamus isn't a moderator?
