I dont think he would be that clever to think we would guess he was posting uner an alias.

hmm if you look at the "dots" on the folders, you'll see Indiana has replied to all those threads, and the ones without dots Indiana has not replied to...

Clever enough to hack in but not clever enough to cover his tracks?

For the record, I was snorting with laughter at my lack of surprise....not at the fact someone hacked in.

As for using a mod's account, wouldn't they notice. And not just that, but he doesn't appear to be doing it maliciously...otherwise why would he reveal himself. Not that it makes it ok.

I think that is what Mac was pointing out.

Actually his Maxine account was showing up under a similar IP as his Thomas Ward account. Unfortunatly most of the British members of this forum have showed up under a similar IP so it's impossible to tell which would be his accounts. Perhaps all UK Internet traffic is being directed through the same hosts somehow, making it also impossible to thoroughly ban Thomas without banning a dozen legitimate UK members.

I'm with nug on it actually, I was laughing my head off when I heard, not because its just so funny but because it was obviously gonna happen, and then there was loads of outrage, as if people couldn't see it coming!

*nods* been going on for a while I reckon.
What I can't figure out is why whoever did it would expose themselves.

Forgive me if I've missed something, but doesn't this answer the question? Bose hit Print-Screen while using your computer, slapped it into a photoshop-type program, saved it, e-mailed it to himself or ftp'd it straight to that site and hey-presto? Or were you being sarcastic in that comment that he used your computer?

Keeper, forgive me because it's been a while since I've used VBulletin but can't you track logs of private forums to see all the activity and see who has accessed it?

To be honest, I think we have to admit it was Indiana's account that was used. Not saying you're responsible, but if a normal user had access to a moderators account...Then I can see why he would do something like that.

The screenshot was at least taken on the 20th of september. Bose was on my computer sometime back in august/early september. He didnt do it anytime lately. He was in my house on saturday, but he was just in to collect money. He wasn't alone and there was no way he could have printed screen or did anything to save it as a gif in the time he looked at my monitor, for which he only looked at a webpage not related to Stargate or Gaters in anyway.

you've previously said people have come to the forum and found themselves logged in as you... perhaps that's what happened?
maybe he was logged in as you, but couldn't post?

He could have copied your gaters.net cookie, put it on his computer, and when you weren't on - bang - login as you, take a screenie of the moderator forum, logout...Done.

He could have but for what reason?

I find Goa'ulds explanation more likely as I've had experience of being logged in as Kamakazi Casper on occassion. But then again just because my post was the last one does not mean he was in my account. For all we know it could have been anyones account.
