Idea:

Have the support mails be posted to the admin forum automatically... provided a police office forum is added, then all forum admins can check on them and fix troubles accordingly.


there is more to it than that. It would work for things such as password problems but not for restoring characters because we would need access to the FTP.  It is a good idea tho.  It would take care of pvp issues and things that need to be addressed, and you could post screenshots and such.  But that would also bring about more flames and arguments.


?!

Well either you misread me or I wasn't clear... in either case here is what I meant:

The e-mail system publishes automatically to a private forum called "The Police Office" in which only admins/PKs can read the messages.  This way admins can get "fixit tickets" in there, possibly with links to .zip file mail attachments (if any are sent) on the mail server, solve the issue (or let other admins know they are working on it) and then post back "done" to let the other admins know the problem is solved.

This would follow the alleged FTP access Particle or LastWish allready mentioned Particle was working on.
;-)

No flames... unless you admin/pk people flame each other..?
Peace.

No I knew what you meant. I was tired when I wrote that so my idea didnt come out right. and I wasnt thinking right. Now that I look at it, it's a good idea. I just dont know if particle is willing to give us admins access ot his FTP. It is a big thing and in the wrong hands it could do a lot of damage. But it would also solve a lot of problems and leave him with more free time, so he wouldnt have to worry about fixing tons of problems..


 8)  my thoughts never come out right sorry.

close thread!

Why? Because it turned into a productive discussion instead of just random flaming, like you'd hoped?


I agree with this post.

 :-D

Well then... yes I agree that the FTP is still a risky business because of possible wrong hands.  Perhaps Particle could set up FTP access through a Virtual Private Network?  Not sure how to do it... but I heard it's possible... just put the Port of the FTP on VPN only access, and this way access would require the connecting computer to meet the specifications Particle sets up for the VPN connection... I think?

I don't remember how it works, but supposedly it's secure and all.
:-p

VPNs are very secure.
« Last Edit: December 31, 1969 06:00 pm CST by Particle »
As a point of history:  Our last server clear was on September 27, 2004.  That is 4963 days ago (13.6 years) as of today.

If you're visiting after a long hiatus and have forgotten your password, try emailing me via the support form at http://www.pcrpg.org.

If your character is from after the 2004 clear but appears to have been deleted or reset, chances are it was caught in one of the inactive account purges over the years.  Backups were made before such events, so try the support form.

A hell of a lot more secure than any other form of open network data transmission.

VPN's are just about all the Air Force uses... they are a unsavory woman to manage though.
