- Post Info
A member's posts on YaBB display various information
about the member. Additional things, such as your personal avatar
may show in this section. Here are some of the things you might see in the
"Author" column beside a post:
member's real or displayed name.
Example: (John Doe)
Every registered member of this forum is in a member
group based on their post count. Sometimes the forum
staff may create member groups to assign to certain members.
These groups may have private boards that only they can
see, read, and reply to.
Example: Prolific (100 plus posts)
visual representation of the volume and frequency
of a member's postings.
number of posts written to date
Example: Posts: 143
the bottom right of a post, just above the beginning
of the next post, you might notice something
like "LOGGED". This refers to a member's
IP Address, which is a unique number that identifies
the member by his connection to the Internet
anywhere on the Internet. Any action on YaBB
(registering, posting, Private Messaging, and
so forth) causes the system to save the member's
IP Address. While you may see "LOGGED", the
Forum Staff sees the actual IP Address of the
member. Thus, regardless of the information
listed in the member's profile, Forum Staff
will always be able to identify an individual
member. This is done to protect the general
membership and YaBB itself. In extreme cases,
the Forum Staff may use an abusive member's IP Address
to prevent that member from returning to YaBB.
