I thought that feature was there some time ago, but I couldn't find. I tried the link just after Tech posted it, but same page as you guys got.

Now what you posted makes sense, no point in still looking for it.

Ah well, another wild goose chase. Though, I have no idea what I'd do with a wild goose if I ever caught one.  ::)

So, now it should be fixed (denied)  ;)
Too wide permissions for 'special groups'.

Kubecj, I have to express my hard feeling with the procedures of punishment when something is going against the rules. I never used any information of the board against the users, I never spammed no one, I just being here to help and enjoy.
But like Bob feels, sometimes, there is no forgive, there is no pardon, there is no hey, Tech, you're going to further, these is a restrict info...
Sometimes I feel like a 12 year old boy here... It's not the fact that happened, as I use the statistics for nothing, but what bothers me is the policy. This happened before on the Off-Topic forum time...
To friends, everything. To enemies, the law.
I really feel disappointed... 

Maybe I should give a time to this forum.

Sorry, I don't understand.

You've pointed to a deficiency in the permissions settings. Thanks for that. I fixed that so that basically now all users have the same rights. You were not punished.

I can't see this way... sorry, maybe I'm too sensible to other people behavior. Maybe I'll be better after some time. Who knows.

We know you wouldn't misuse these statistics or the members search function.

But, basically it was a security hole that may not have been just you would be able to access this function, so it had to be closed.

David,
I think it was one of the Mod functions that wasn't removed from Tech when the Off-Topic
forum was closed.
You and I had that privilege revoked and Techs was overlooked.
I don't think it has anything to do with security.

Nope. Basically some groups of users had their permissions too open - that's wrong when it's not by decision but by omission. This version of SMF has no way of per-user permission settings. This omission on my side has nothing to do with Tech's ex-moderatorship and the 'fix' was not 'against' Tech or anyone personally.

It is not about stats, but about list of all members.
