Login to user account manually

Post by Beastly on January 28th 2013, 7:19 pm

There should be a option in the administration panel when you click on administrate profile to login to a users account without having to change their password. (But make it so you cannot do this with the founder account.)This is so we can crackdown on bad users cyberbullying etc.

Personally, I think it would benefit all administrators on their boards as it will allow them to rid themselves of users who are breaking the forums tos.

Sorry this topic isn't too detailed, but I'm not sure what to write =/

Sorry, I am voting no to this. I am against misuse of this ability more than preventing a cyberbully by stalking. If a cyber bully, bullies someone or spams the forum it will definitely be reported to you. You don't need to login into their accounts.

I also voted no for the same reason that Sanket posted.

Joining the two above me. Seems like a good idea, but in the end I don't think we need it. Voted no.

Agreed with Sanket and SLGrey. As Sanket has already stated it will get reported to the Admins and Mods of each board respectively, all you have to do is ask for proof such as a screen shot after which you can take the appropriate action required to either drastically reduce or cease the bully all together.

Sorry, not interested. Assuming, you are on your forum everyday and for more than couple of hours. You, as an administrator should be aware of what is going on your forum at all times and if you have moderators. They would probably help you administer the site. Besides, it seems pointless.

I vote yes. Good Idea. I really need to log into accounts, because my friends bother keeps making new accounts and spamming, and I don`t want to block his IP, cause then my friend (who is the founder, i`m the 2nd admin) couldn`t log on.

If what you are saying is that your friends brother keeps making new accounts to spam with and you don't want to ban by IP, then ban by the account which is typically the way to ban on forumotion forums anyway. Banning by IP prevents "A" certain user from even reaching the index page of the forum which can only be done through the ACP which as a 2nd Admin you should not have access to anyway, and at that level you cannot ban or alter any Admin account ranking above you so you should have no worries with regards to banning the founder as that is not possible.
