Just and FYI to all members.

My account was used at 7:47am on Monday morning. I was banned at the time and unable to log into my account. The only people I can see that would be able to access it at that point is admin/mods. I keep no personal info of any sort in my account and I hope you all do the same. You never know who is going to be going through your stuff!! :bananen_smilies046:

When I signed on it said my last activity was at 747am on Monday. I was banned at the time (and driving home from work as I am off at 730am)

Maybe the mods or Coach wanted to see what the PM I wrote to you said? Why else would they want to know what your doing?


i dont know but my account is my account. i didt know they were there for anyone to go in whenever they wanted

I understand how you feel but technically, if they feel there is concern to do so , a Mod or owner can access anyones account if they wish to and I only know this because I have owned places like this for Wrestling and I had the ability. I never used it because I had no need to but they can if they wish. I don't know that they did but it is possible.:undwech:

...and so I advise everyone not to put any personal info on their account. What is wrong with you?

The only person that could hypothetically login to your account(other than you) would be me. Although I'm not even sure how to do it. All passwords are encrypted. I didn't login to your account on Monday morning or any other time for that matter. Mods can edit posts, etc., but nobody can log into anyone else's account.

But as you correctly stated, it is always a good idea to not keep personal information on any online account.

Last dealings I had with him were on that goallineblitz.com website.

He was the owner of the Ottawa Chiefs.

I let his domain expire, hope he didn't get pissed off about that, but I hadn't heard from him in a long time and didn't want to shell out the 10 bucks to re register it.

If someone is banned then anyone off the street wouldn't be able to access the account anyways so I doubt it's being hacked.

What defines 'activity' to vBulletin?

Is that someone logging in?

Posting?

Or just browsing the site from their IP without being signed it?

While in banned status, nobody should be able to access it directly. The only thing mods have access to here is the ability to un-ban a user.

The way I understand it, activity is measured by the last thing that you have done. So if I post a comment and then let my session time out, the time of my post would go down as my last activity. If I were to manually log myself out, then it should show my logout time as my last activity.

To be honest, I haven't paid much attention to that aspect of it since it has never had any bearing on my use of the site. I will keep a closer eye on that now to get a better handle on how it is logging activity.

...anyhow. I'm not sure what you want, but if the explanation for the banning wasn't clear enough the other day I'm not sure how much better I can explain it. You received an infraction for your actions. You then sent me a PM completely mocking the process, and joking about how you are 'collecting' infractions. I took it as a joke, until you started completely disrespecting the process that Coach has created for creating order on the site. You gave us two choices...allow your behavior or escalate the issue.

All I will say is I have received messages from each of the other mods and admins and a number of users who feel I made the right call. You are a great contributor to the site most of the time, and as much as certain users can be annoying or idiots, it isn't your right to bully them off the site.

Frankly if Coach asks me to change how I deal with issues I'd be more than happy to. However he has told us how he'd like us to do our jobs, and I am doing just that.

You are free to debate, just keep it respectful. You know the rules...the misspelled swear words to get around the censor, the personal attacks, etc. aren't tolerated...respectful debate always is.

I am still unclear on which rule it was that I broke. Idon't know if you want to copy and paste or quote it from the rule book, but if you could show me the rule where it says I can't mock the infraction process, I would love to see it. I just want to know if it is a real rule I broke or just one you made up becuase I didnt care about the infraction you gave me. You may have gotten a few pms from people who feel you made the right call, but I think the site membership has spokn quite clearly on how this whole thing has been handled. I guess some people just don't handle power as well as others.

334 unread posts? That is why you did not respond to me? You posted plenty during and after my ban you have just avoided commenting on it. there has been plenty of opportunity for it. But let me ask you, if I got banned for "mocking the infraction process" How come no other mod/admin has banned me for this?

As far as getting into your account, as an admin myself you set the permissions and if Coach says he alone has that power then he alone has that power and he can look at your account through the admin cpanel and doesn't need to actually log into your account which no one can do unless they have your password. Not even the admin are privy to passwords as they look like this to the admin. *********. just a bunch of astericks.

You were forced to ignore Chris because I was sick of breaking up playground fights. I told both you to add each other to your ignore lists, otherwise I would do it for you. After you ignored my request, I did as I said I would do.
