I'd assume so, but what makes me doubt my assumption is that some posts can go for quite a while before being moderated.

'Course, then again, you can't expect a mod to be on at all times and we all have lives outside this forum. 

I'm Necko.  I'm like Ringo except I wear necklaces.

I'm also ewe2 on weekends.

Most likely to post things that make you go hmm... 2015, 2016, 2017.

Wait ... we do? That's news!

On topic: I don't think they do, as some posts can go a long time not getting moderated.

Well from what I remeber, Ahhh Girl keeps her mentions and I think first posts go up there as well so it might get lost.

Zig isn't as active as the other two mods.

Not sure about meanmistermustard probably work.

Ellie is never on pretty much

Joe is kinda like Zig in activity.

There are no notifications regarding new accounts, well I don't get any. They are red in the 'New/Updated Topic' drop down menu. We try and get around to them as soon as we can but it's never going to be immediate and getting notifications from others informing me on here certainly wouldn't help me. If I see red topics I go there first. 

I'm not on as much mainly due to work. Over this weekend (Friday to Monday) I worked 43 hours. Add sleep, sleep deprivation, glorious sunshine, life etc and you can see where the time goes. I have a 25 hour a week contract so 100 hours a month but I can't remember the last time I worked less than 140 hours. It's tiring work so coming onto the forum and interacting can be limited. Thankfully I have 6 days off as I'm knackered.

Can Joe read PMs?  

It's possible. Don't freak out though, allow me to explain.

All the words, links etc that get posted here are stored in a database which lives on my server. If that didn't happen then nothing about your account would get saved. It has to go somewhere, right?

This is something all database-driven sites have in common, including the likes of Facebook and Gmail. If it's stored somewhere centrally (ie not on your local device) it's theoretically possible for a site admin to access your info.

So, I could comb through the mySQL tables and look for specific messages from specific people, but it's not my area of expertise, would take me forever and it's not something I'm interested in doing.

Some things, like passwords, are encrypted and I have no way of accessing them. That said, as the admin I can post messages here as other people (I think I've only done it once, as a demonstration). I can make some changes to accounts (eg display names) but I don't have the means to go through someone's inbox via the front end.

Really, I'm not that interested in alienating my forum members. If I lose your trust my reputation takes a nosedive, and this forum will be a worse place for it. I've never tried to spy on people or hack their accounts, and unless people start using this forum for genuinely dark purposes I can't see myself doing so (I'm talking about law enforcement issues).

There's a TL;DR on the privacy policy page which applies quite well here:

TL;DR: I'm more interested in The Beatles than I am in spamming or tracking visitors to this site.

So could Ellie as co-Admin do that as well, hypotheticly?

Hypothetically yes, but quite frankly she probably can't even remember her password, let alone how to navigate the user interface in any nefarious manner. I think you're safe.

So Joe can see Evangeline's plans to overthrow him if he gets suspicious.
