When people are being complementary they say I have a resemblance of Jason Statham  :grin:, when they're not, they say Karl Pilkington  :embarrassed: ... but no, never been called Colin. My real name's actually Peter, I don't know where Mike ever came from...  :huh: It's like Trigger, calling Rodney - Dave.  :rolleyes:

Nah, Ash just blurs his face a bit to hide the wrinkles, and I bet he moisturises.  :tongue: :kiss:

Usually on forums a pseudonym is usually needed as all common names are taken.

But using pseudonyms online is pretty complicated. It's necessary as "Dave" is probably taken, but also because it's faceless and people see nothing more than your name usually, so people then choose a name which represents something about their personality, i.e HK_Fuey representing his martial arts, Mav469 being because Ash wanted to be a fighter pilot, and we won't talk about Rob...  :huh:

There's a paper by MIT about it:
In civil society, anthroponymy sets the social being within a group. More precisely, their
patronymic or matronymic is used to position them along a genealogical line, whereas their first
name is a means to identify them within the family group. So what can be said about the social
being?s identity in the context of digital society? In order to join discussion forums or chatrooms,
the internet user has to choose a pseudonym, the origins of which stem from various
sources – the person?s private life, cultural objects, individual traits etc. However, using a
pseudonym on the Web is not done for the sole purpose of naming an individual. Thus, in the
course of a follow-up communication to the on-line publication of newspaper articles or while
discussing a given theme in a forum, the nomen falsum (or„false name?) chosen by the user can
be laden with meaning - antagonism, emotion etc. This multidimensional status of a pseudonym
on the Internet will be examined using various examples taken from newspapers?on-line editions
as well as discussion forums. Other questions arise from this observation. If a pseudonym is used
for naming or protesting, does this not mean that its purpose is to express what cannot be said
within civil society? Is this not a confusion between private and public space? And if so, what
are the reasons? Finally, does digital society not stand as an opposing force to civil society?

Ohh I never thought of all that  :huh: .....you got another posty spammer  offering loans but I expect your on that.... :grin:


Coming back to mods and admin and thier priveledges ,there was one forum that shall be nameless that a very nice chap sold on, the new owner told us mods that we must go into private message folders of members to see what they were discussing   :angry: Whilst I never had anything to hide in my messages I felt this was bang out of order , had i wanted to work for MI5  I would have chosen that path long ago . Coupled with  wanting to charge members to see the forum  ,which was daft beyond belief , or I felt it was.... I walked.  :smiley:

I'm not even aware of a forum platform which allows / facilitates that. This one certainly doesn't, rightfully so...

Well I dont know I never had anything to do with  the software , I am trying to remember , would an administrators password  open anything?  I could get into accounts  , we had a lot of problems  with the same person or say one or two people coming in under different names and starting  arguments, in one forum I could get into an account and ban them for say 30 days or whatever. Also obviously I could delete accounts.


I think this is also a reason why I adopted different names when moving to another forum as at one point I appeared to have got a stalker  :undecided:  ...................


Garry and I got invites to stay , and the evenings entertainment wasnt going to be monopoly , it does make me laugh as Im short round old and realy not attractive in any way   :smiley:  ....had to change phone numbers and all sorts....thats why now I can be a bit standoffish   .

There needs to be functionality there waiting for an administrators password to open something, and certainly in this forum platform, there's just no ability whatsoever for me to view personal messages of others.

I can obviously view account settings, I can view profiles the same as the owner of the profile can, so I can change a username, email address, etc, but no access to PMs but my own. PMs can be reported though, at which point the message is forwarded to me/mods, but that's the only way a PM can be seen by myself or moderators.

You can view a demo SMF installation if you want to verify that. :) SMF version 2.0.6 Demo - opensourceCMS

Yeah, I can ban members indefinitely or for a period of time, and while that seems to happen a lot on car forums, it'd seem odd for a place like this (to ban for a duration). If someone was so incompatible with the forum that a ban was necessary, then I see no reason why they'd ever want to return to do anything but cause more trouble. Anyway, other than spammers, nobody's ever been banned so far. (although I'm keeping my eye on you...)  :wink:

Nah as you've said Mike there is no way to access PM's.....well there is a way but you would know it had been done. There are ways around everything but you can't just access things that easily.
