I attempted login from Tor. I got the message 'You are not allowed to login to this forum,' although when I logged in from Safari it did so without hitch.
Why doesn't login work from Tor?

Hello Frankyette, welcome on STS forum Very Happy

Maybe you wasn't able to Login with Tor because we need to know who are our members? Laughing

Feel free to come back soon... With Safari Wink

Since Tor disguises one's IP address, that would make difficult several tasks that the moderators have. For instance, we are currently voting on best-of-2014 figures. With Tor, one could "stuff" the ballot box.

Fortunately our moderators are stand-up folks. I'm doubtful that members of the forum need to worry about their IP addresses being available to the STS Admin.

Yes, you're right Scott! Very Happy
During a member registration we can find this information in agreement terms:
"We reserve ourselves the possibility of informing your access provider and/or the legal authorities of any malevolent behavior. An IP address of each poster is recorded in order to help us to make you respect these conditions. "

Frankyette, of course you're welcome on forum but we have access to some information about our members, even their current location. Wink santa Like a Star @ heaven

Okay, I just didn't understand. I'm not a huge fan of such things - doesn't seem quite right to me - but who am I to argue?

It is easy to understand Frankyette, using Tor to login a forum is like coming to someone else's house, with a mask to stay unknown, and serving yourself into the fridge, the library, the closet...

Using Safari to Login will provide us enough information to know if you are not a banned member who is trying to come back withut permission. Safari (or Chrome, Firefox...) will not reveal us your private life.

We understand it is a right to protect one's private life but we also need to protect our forum. I hope you will understand Wink

Obviously, but as you noticed, you can be hidden behind an username, use a false birthday date and even choose an exotic place like Christmas Islands. Christophe analogy is very good and I sure you understand. I am sure no member will have problems because of its IP address as long as there is no abusive behaviour. If you are here just to enjoy, you can use a common browser and feel confortable. Very Happy

Understand that I've had privacy issues before starting with an IP address. I'm not saying your forum is untrustworthy, but because of those issues I'm instantly wary of something like this, thus the question and somewhat snarky response.

That's completely understandable. Very Happy There's no need to feel wary here, we're just a harmless village.
