    I say this rather what tongue in cheek, but I've noticed you can tell if a user has read their pm from you, you can tell what a particular user is online and if they are what they are doing on tMP and now you can even tell how they voted on every poll.

    Hmmm :rolleyes:

    Im pretty sure you could do most of this on the last version of the site.

    you could see who was online and what they were doing, you could tell if they had read there pm's etc.

    It wouldnt surprise me if the gods above (mods) could even tell were you were posting from, including what country! (thats how they sussed Ben and myself out in the BOC Bro house!:oops: )

    Oh it's better than that. This new site comes with a built-in Moderator Web Cam, so not only do we know where you're posting from, we can see what you're doing as well!

    Perhaps with over 60 views and only 3 votes to this point I should have made choice 4: "I don't want to vote because I don't want Big Brother to know what I think"

    That's assuming that Big Brother has to have a post to go on, rather than just taking in the brain impulses via the screen ;)

    For those of us who missed it, can you give us a clue as to what you removed Mr B? :lol:

    I think if he did that he'd have to moderate himself!

    (That sounds kind of painful :shock: )

    Believe me, the crucial part was the "from memory" section (could really have put "imagination) - it was a spin-off from Roger's comment about the Moderator Web Cam" :shock: ;) :oops:

    and I always thought craig was such a nice boy... anyway, I don't think they're big brotherish, I think they're all lovely people, who do a difficult job really well, and want to give me £50 each...

    (do you think it'll work?)

    Hehe, get down on yer knees and say it again, it might! :p

    Ditto to everything Lynchie said, although I do have reservations about members being able to see how each other voted in a poll, but maybe thats just me.

    that sounds like a good idea Lynchie! Bring it along to Pontins along with the money for the chalet and enough money to buy me all the drinks you owe me from after Flixton rehearsals!!! :cool:

    If you click on the number of votes in any category, the names of those who voted for that option will be displayed.

    When I queried whether this was a good thing, I was assured that it is possible to also set up a poll where voting is not visible, for more sensitive issues.
