Members in good standing remain as long as they wish, and such comments about other members are inappropriate behavior on-forum. I'd suggest re-thinking before making them in the future.

Oh, I was being completely facetious, but duly noted. I'll be more careful with my humor moving forward. Not looking to join those messages in oblivion, kind Sir William.

If you put someone on ignore - can they still PM you?

And like your posts?

I think they can like your posts but they can't PM you.

I think they think they can PM you... Like, I think it goes off into space. I don't think they get a rejection message.

They can form a PM and send it but it will not be received.

To my knowledge, yes, but your ability to like their posts is removed.

Based on the title, I'll move this to the pinned thread on private messages.

How long until I get access to PM's? I thought it was 2 months (which is today) and I have over 150 posts... I 'jumped to' that folder and was told that I didn't have privileges.

Your 30 days since registering is up today. Check your panel tomorrow morning and enable PM if not already done.

Have you turned on the option to PM?

Top navigation bar = My profile/CP
Left hand nav bar = Settings and options/Edit Options/Messaging and Notification/Enable Private Messaging

Access to PMs

Do Moderators and Administrators have access to members PMs or is it just Administrators?

I can only speak for moderators, we do not have any access to posters pm's, passwords, email addresses or any personal info besides your posting history/deleted posts and infractions.

As far as the site owner, my assumption would be that yes he has access to all of it.

Thanks Robert, any idea about senior moderators or the board of directors?

I couldn't answer for them, but would I find it unlikely the site owner would deviate from the policy of protecting posters anonymity and allow any other person access to personal info.

Anyone with direct access to the database can read PM's, though it's pretty ugly in native mode. However, as an example, here's a hack that's available for LoveShack's version of the software to clean things up a bit:

Read PMs (PM Management Suite Lite) - vBulletin.org Forum

I'm unaware of whether or not such hacks have been installed and whether the administrator must be logged into the forums, visibly, to use them. I would presume so because he was logged in while making other changes to the software the last time he was here in January. I'll inquire of the head moderator as to what database access he has. I know that moderation (forum moderators) has no such access.

Edited to add that I went back and searched the last decade of private postings and found no references to moderators/administrators having or using access to the database to read member's PM's. I did find plenty of references to protecting member's privacy and fixing the PM system to do that, specifically from PM spamming.

I'll move this to the consolidated thread regarding our Private Message system

Thanks for the question.
