By ones message there is a writing "report to moderator, logged"  what does "report to moderator   XX.XX.XX.XX"  mean?

We've had this before ... I think the long number is your personal ID on the internet ?   So its very adviseable to delete it from your previous post pretty quick !

Hi Helina

Only you can see the number that you posted in your thread above (since removed by me)

It's your ISP number - internet service provider - and it just provides a kind of address that Rootschat uses to identify you.

I assume you already know that the Report to Mod is a kind of button which enables you to report anything that the Mods need to look at or help with?

Kind regards, Arranroots  ;)

Thanks, So nobody else can see this number, and when they send a message they get one as well.

I can see my number, you can see yours - but I can't see yours and you can't see mine!  :)

It is just a coincidence that the number appears next to the Report to Moderator (or R2M) button.  Nothing to do with your ISP number.

 ;)

More precisely, this number is the IP address, as provided by your ISP.

IP means Internet Protocoll.

As has been said already, only YOU see this IP number, on your own posts - on every other post you will just see "logged"

"logged" is also a link; If you click on it, you will see this pop-up message:

Any UK Census Data included in this post is Crown Copyright (see: www.nationalarchives.gov.uk)
