flaws in system that editing of profiles can be done by people other than Mods.

I will make some changes to the system so that I will be the only one who can edit profiles. This way their is no finger pointing and if they are edited they can point the finger at me only.

thanks,

Personally I think that's the best solution. Because no MOD for example should be able to edit the profile of another MODs or even the admins.

My profile was updated yesterday including the Biography part and was read by at least one moderator. Later in the day when I returned to check the profile the bio part had mysteriously disappeared.

Gremlins maybe!! Sad

by Cetin Denislam / August 9, 2004 2:49 AM PDT

However, it might be more causes. I'll do some tests today and tomorrow.

This bug has been fixed
by Lee Koo (ADMIN) CNET staff/forum admin / August 10, 2004 4:05 AM PDT

The system was the culprit to this, not a moderator or anyone else.

The system was deleting the bios everytime it updated the system info. It reload everything except the biost for some reason. Now that this has been addressed it shouldn't be a problem any longer.

REVIEW

Meet the drop-resistant Moto Z2 Force

The Moto Z2 Force is really thin, with a fast processor and great battery life. It can survive drops without shattering.
