Re: Forum Administrators and passwords
Yeah, I dunno. I'm very paranoid about people seeing my details like that. I have no idea how much it would cost, and Hotmail for some reason won't explain to me how to go about it. Like, I'm wiling to know how to co-operate with their suggestion and they're ducking me. That's why I'm trying to find an alternate way of contacting them. Do they have any other numbers? I tried calling Microsoft but they told me to go to the forum. Maybe I didnt negotiate enough...lol...

Re: Forum Administrators and passwords
Also, can forum admins keep records on the searches you make on their forum?

It depends on the forum, how it's setup and who has permission to what, but worst case YES .. The forum administrator/owner as well as the database administrator potentially has access to everything you've done at their forum.

Hmmmm, what kind of admin, the root admin or the regular admin? And do you really think they'd look that much into what I've done on the forum besides my regular posts? what if my account was deleted? then would those records disappear?

Regular admin, root admin, or whatever, the answer is 'it depends'..
I can't predict what somone might or might not be interested in looking at..
If the account was deleted, they would still have archives of everything.. How old, I can't answer.

Hmmm, so with the old account I used, which was deleted, they'll still have the old email address it was connected to? Even if I was to delete that email address?

Potentially the information could still be stored in archives.

Oh that's true. Can you google comments in secret forum rooms. Or google namess that are on flash sites?

Re: Forum Administrators and passwords

usually the Google search bot can't access private forums but the forum/website administrator can configure it so that the Google bot can have access (although it kinda defeats the purpose).

Last i recall, the Google search bot was not able to read 'stuff' in the flash portion of Flash sites.
