PostSubject: How our forums here are secure   Sun Aug 26, 2012 7:39 pm

A few times lately, different people have mentioned they did not want to visit the forums here because they were nervous that it was not secure.

These are the ways we make our forums here secure:

1 ) we use a reputable forum service

2 ) clanmates are invited here privately or at least semi-privately (so that all the world does not know this forum is here)

3 ) clanmates have to have their accounts activated by an admin / founder before they can post (no one can just come on here without permission to be here)

4 ) clanmates are asked to register with their player name or something close to it for so we know who's posting, BUT they are strongly encouraged to use a different password than they use for the game for their own peace of mind

5 ) attachments are not allowed to be put on the forums here--that ability is de-activated

6 ) only current clan members are allowed to register and post

7 ) if a clan member leaves, then their account is deleted so they cannot post

8 ) if a clan member is banned, their account is banned here as well and they cannot post


These are the steps and precautions we take to ensure the safety and security of our clan members on these forums.


Apart from this, a person's security on the Internet is ultimately up to them.

Suggested personal steps to take:
1 ) use a good anti-virus program
2 ) use 1 or 2 good anti-malware programs, if one is not a part of your anti-virus
3 ) use a good firewall, if one is not a part of your anti-virus
4 ) scan your computer often
5 ) use common sense in surfing the Internet--gambling and porn sites are known to harbor viruses, malware, and even hackers sometimes. Also, be cautious of new games coming out and only play those from companies you trust. (side note: games hosted through Yahoo often have adware and spyware.)

I know you go to great lengths to keep this a safe, secure, fun place for us to enjoy getting to know each other and share important information. I have participate in several clan forums through the years, and this one is by far the safest, not only in security, but also in having positive, affirmative content too.

Thanks, Je and everyone who helps keep the clan informed here!
