would it be possible to add PM logging cos i want to keep an eye on whats going on in my forum to see if people are spamming or are doing stuff which are inappropriate
There is a mod that Dean of Invisoinze made. I'd probley rather have to install a mod for PM logs.
This has been discussed many times. While I, myself, use Dean's PM Logs mod, I agree completely with past discussion that this should remain a mod and not become a feature.
Matt (I believe) has said that he will not implement this because of privacy and I completely understand.
if its the case of privacy, shouldnt the email logs be treated in the same way?
IPB and IF have e-mail logs becuase of spam considerations I think. Yes I know of PM can get spam. There is a reason why E-mails have to be logged and not PM's.
I am against any logging both PM and Mail because you violatre somebody's privacy is SOMEONE receives, one ought to inform the administrator of such occurence. It is not Administrator that sees private messages. I am strongly opting for removing that features. Administrator is, under any cirmumstances, not a BIG BROTHER.
unfortionatly, Deans mod wont work for IPB 2.1 so when i upgrade, i will be left clueless
Give him time ... I'm sure he will upgrade them for 2.1 in the future.
It already there guys, he did it :)
Just touching on the issue of Email-logging for a minute, I want to point out that it does say in multiple places that the content is logged and can be viewed by administrators.
