Do you guys mind if I have a 1x1 pixel image in my signature that takes IP addresses and the time to show me how many views my posts are getting??

Fully understand if you don't wish me to have this :)

Please, write clearly with proper structure. Double spacing makes the text feel un-jointed, Capitalizing Every Word Means People Stop Before Every Word Sub-Consciously Which Is A Pain In The Backside, and use code tags! (The right most styling box).

Hello bbqroast,

I may be able to speak on behalf of Roger that recording internet protocol addresses would be of a privacy concern to our users, regardless of its intent.

You will have to wait for Roger's response on this, however recording purely non identifiable data, time, would seem a more valid option for this approach.

Alexander.

All new problems require investigation, and so if errors are problems, try to learn as much as you can and report back.

Probably not a good idea due to privacy issues.:rules:

Ok, yeah I thought privacy might be an issue- although I think IPs are pretty anon.
