Whats with the email tracking the last time I was here?

3 posts in this topic

I just got an email saying i havent been to this forum since March 1, 2007 at 6:14 am and that you miss me. You can be sure that, if youre tracking my activity, I wont be back here again. This is supposed to be entertainment, not a place where my activity is tracked by my visits! Please take my name and email off of your list of visitors, thanks.

The process of 'logging in' is always going to track what you do.

'you last logged in on *****'

Just by using the net you're been tracked in anything that you do online!

I thought I replied to this, but my post is gone. :winter:/>

And yes, as White_Widow said, the process of logging visits is a normal thing. Each message board or - for that matter, any website with interactive contents - uses both "cookies" (to store your login information on your computer, so you wouldn't have to enter it each time) and regularly gathers statistic on when someone posted last, so it could show you new content when you're back.

I just ran a task and sent a very friendly message to everyone who hasn't been here in more than a year...it was meant to remind people to drop by if they still feel like it, nothing bad, mean or illegal. I'm sorry it scared you.
