    Can mods do this?

    Hi all,

    - If I post and just after seeing it I delete it, will mods be able to see it later?
    - Similarly, if I post something and edit it, will mods see the original post?
    - If I change my online status to be hidden, can mods still see me?
    - Do mods know my email, even if I chose not to display it to any body?

    - If I change my email address, will some notifications be sent to old email, which I need to confirm, or something like that?

    Seeing as I have some experience with moderating a vBulletin board, I can answer some of these.

    Yes. And they can undelete it, too.

    Not without some sort of hack to my knowledge.

    - Do mods know my email, even if I chose not to display it to any body?
    Yes, they may. If they have access to a moderator control panel, they can see all your profile information, as well as modify it.

    - If I change my email address, will some notifications be sent to old email, which I need to confirm, or something like that?
    Oftentimes, a new one is generated and sent to your new email so you can verify it.

    vBulletin is a very mysterious thing. I've heard all forums have a hidden board (like Area 51 on daniweb but its hidden) which normal users can't see. Moderators and admins use it for....i don't know what. Probably to decide who's gonna be banned next

    After your behavior? Unlikely.
    Asking to become a moderator is also a big no-no. If they need one, they can pick one.

    Most boards have some forum of Staff forum that's hidden to non-staff.

    Most boards have some forum of Staff forum that's hidden to non-staff.
    You can have groups within the users, and have forums that are hidden to all but those groups, or that can only be posted in my certain members - it's even adjustable on the level of replying to exisitng vs. creating new threads.

    On another forum, where I am a moderator, there is a "Moderators lounge" - it's very low traffic area, but occasionally we discuss the errant behaviour of users, or other moderator-specific subjects - along with some "moderator only" friendly chat.

    On that same forum, there are a couple of other "restricted use" forums - some which allow anyone to read, but only some to write, and some that are secret, but not directly bound to whether the member is a moderator or not.

    This is all part of phpBB/vBulletin and any other related forum software.

    It is up to the forum owner to set up who has the right to do what in which forum.

    Yes, I'm familiar with the choices that are available.
    It's certainly possible to lock forums to only some people (often groups), to certain post levels, etc.
    This could be further customized by board hacks.

    That brings me back to the OT group (http://cboard.cprogramming.com/showgroups.php), I still don't know what it is

    And my thread about it a while ago didn't help -- everyone thought it was a laughing matter!

    You should know what it is. I sent you a PM with an explanation.

    Yeah, Id like to know too, just curious.
    Until you can build a working general purpose reprogrammable computer out of basic components from radio shack, you are not fit to call yourself a programmer in my presence. This is cwhizard, signing off.

    >- If I post and just after seeing it I delete it, will mods be able to see it later?
    Yes.

    >- Similarly, if I post something and edit it, will mods see the original post?
    No, the most we can see is that the post was edited. There's no versioning involved except in the case of reported posts, where the post as it was reported is saved as a quote.

    >- If I change my online status to be hidden, can mods still see me?
    Yes.

    >- Do mods know my email, even if I chose not to display it to any body?
    Yes, we have read access to all of the public, private, and internal information for your account.
    My best code is written with the delete key.

    Not without any hacks, no.
    I once installed a hack for phpbb that allowed reading PMs for admins, so to say it's impossible is a lie, but vbulletin by default does not have such a feature. Don't worry.

    So, what naughty things have you been saying in your PMs?

    We know what you did with that hamster abh!shek.

    We don't have access to PMs besides our own. I don't know for sure but I'd be surprised if VB has any default feature that allows even admins to view other's PMs. Of course if you have access to the database you don't need the forum in order to view them.

    We can only change the signature, profile picture, and avatar. We can see the rest of the profile information but can't change it.
