Was looking at someone's profile and notified they were viewing some PM's.. and that it will actually display the name of the person who sent them a PM.

Not really sure how I feel about it. I suppose I don't really care that someone knows I sent this person a PM, but.. meh..

I can see how that would bother some people, if you were reading your mail (real mail) and your nosey neighbor knew who it was from, would that not bother you a little bit?

Not really a huge deal, but I can see how that would bother some.

But the shady voyeurism isn't all that nice. Who has this authority? Mods? If it was just admins, I could understand (but still blatant voyerism nonetheless).

Hard to tell if you can see this stuff because you have slightly elevated rights.

Anyway, slightly newer version of vBulletin now, but I am pretty sure its working as intended.

I remember back as a legacy mod you'd get the IP addresses also, not now tho.

Edit, I get it also.

admins, and sometimes moderators, can see search queries, error pages, ip addresses, user agent (browser and browser version, operating system and version) and the exact url a member is viewing.

that's on current vbulletin. not sure about other software :)

hmmm it could just be the person is viewing his/her inbox though, and not creating/viewing a message yet :)

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
