Just wondering if they could
No, unless it’s flagged.
Yes, they can, but they won’t unless a post in the PM gets flagged.
I don’t think so maybe a mod could answer this
If mods could see our private messages, then it wouldn’t be considered private now would it? :)
Now there is a awnser
Admins can see all private messages, whether they are flagged or not. Moderators can only see private messages they’re not invited to if they’re flagged.
Who are admins?
Oh … Tyler is an admin. This defeats the purpose of a PM.
Here’s my question: Why call it private when it’s really not?
NOTHING on the Internet is private!!!
It’s private to the public.
I’ve answered this in the past already but I’ll clarify again this time.
Whilst the site admins have the capability of viewing PMs, this isn’t something that FDS do or will do on the Infinite Flight community unless we have a rock-solid reason to do so.
For starters, we value your privacy - in my eyes it should be a basic right of the internet. Your conversations aren’t something we need to read unless they’re brought to our attention by a user (e.g. flagged).
And more importantly, we have better things to do with our time than explore people’s PMs. As Henrik said, only admins have this capability, and I can tell you from experience that the site’s admins (namely the developers) enjoy working on building cool features such as global flight, instead of wondering what conversations an Infinite Flight Community member is having with their friends over PM.
Tl;dr - the capability exists for extreme circumstances, but it isn’t something we have done, will do or are actively doing.
2 bad the american government doesn’t understand this LOL
Tell me about it… I could go on about NSA snooping and the FBI iPhone unlock story all day. 😒
