Why Are Private Messages Not Allowed? -Forum Question-Discussion Topic


#21

Well I made up a bunch of things THT could do to better moderate PMs


#22

It’s sorta common sense why not. It’s a forum which is a place to collaborate and discuss. Not direct messages apps.


#23

There actually is a way to make PMs the admin can’t see. It was a big thing last year.


#24

Yeah I know it is through asking to join a group


#26

Yeah it works if you have to request to join a group


#28

Well you can get banned if you just use it to talk to someone


#29

Lol but no one knows you’re doing it so how can you get caught


#30

… the mods know about the pms?? you’d get banned if you had an unauthorized one probably


#31

The moderators can know


#33

yeaaah they do

how do you know they don’t care?


#35

they probably saw.

the mods are smarter than they seem…


#37

when…?


#38

I talk to all my forum friends on insta because god forbid I want to send a pic of my face diving into a taco to a friend


#40

mkay


#41

cGASP YOU WOULDNT DARE!?!


#42

Mods can’t see PMs.

First of all, great topic. This is an AWESOME debate question to ask on the forum.

I think restrictions are put on private messaging because I am pretty sure they can be super easily hacked (I may be wrong, I am totally unsure of this) and also people may say hurtful things, and by the time THT gets a chance to remove it, the damage probably was already done…
I wish there was a safer way to private messages, like restricted language and stuff. That would solve I think all of the above issues and would be similar to private messaging.


#44

Please explain this.


#45

The forum can’t exactly be hacked because unlike hopscotch where you can access JSON, I think THT restricted that stuff.


#46

Becaus of something that happened 2 1/2 years ago.
(Before I joined so don’t ask me anything)
