Confirm Password.

Post by Raze on August 12th 2011, 1:39 pm

I think the Forumotion should have confirm password for things like Deleting post or moving threads and so on.

Reason: Mods who have saved password could have a friend/brother/sister or someone else get on the computer come to the site and mess with things like delete forums.

This could mess a lot of things up Sad

So people will vote no because they won't want to type their password in so much.
That's why we should also get a option for this in Admin Control Panel to have it on or off this could help a bit.

I really don't want to spend more time cleaning up a forum by entering a password every time. If you live with others its your responsibility to log off.

I vote no because its not useful or is needed.

Well MrMario
That's why I also said to set it on or off with the Admin Control Panel

It would be less of a worry if someone got into admin/mod account.

I don't think its needed.

Also, working on something & giving an option in the admin panel to turn it off or on is not viable when the thing is not really required.

Honestly, I see this being more of a hassle then it's worth, so I'm voting no - here's why.

Example, you need to move 20 posts, you would have to enter your password 20 times. I can for see this would be extremely frustrating, and when your forum gets spammed with say, 200 undesirable posts, gosh, I can't even imagine how stressful that would be for a Moderator who can't turn this option off.

Also, if my password is remembered on my forum, wouldn't it be auto-inserted into that password dialog box, so my family member/whoever I share my computer with would only have to click "Send" and poof, post gone, without them even knowing my password. ouou


I believe the intention behind the idea is good, but in practicality isn't so good.

if you have a way of logging out of your modlyness without loging out of the account might be viable but if you have to log out you may aswell log out of the account

I'm voting no. If you have responsible moderators, then the reason you posted for adding this feature goes out the window.

If you're worried about people deleting topics, get rid of their ability to do so.

I vote NO also.

Administration requires responsibility. Hitting logoff/logout , no hard work done!

No. I don't think your friends/brothers/sisters will be interested on what you interest in.

Even if you have to retype in the password the fact is that most web browsers today will automatically remember and fill it in anyway.

Thus the feature is pointless and will just annoy people I'm afraid.

Voted No.
