Often user have concerns about the information held about them on a system and the access of the system admin. Again for total transparency, I thought it worth stating it here, so people know and don’t have to ask.
When registering, the only thing we need is your username and e-mail address. No one cares how old you are, when your birthday is or your location. None of this is kept. This is what I have access to on my admin screen
And if I go into a user I see this. Plus mods and I have some management functions etc..We don’t even store IP, if it is stored, I haven’t found it.
Lastly, private messaging is with Whisper, it’s awful, you have to use it sparingly and slowly…but I don’t care as this is first and foremost a forum. Whisper uses a realtime push and is not stored in any form I can access, I think it uses secure sockets? That’s it, that’s all we got and anything extra, you will have put in posts you make.
