  1. DaChew is right, it just isn't practical. Can you imagine how much of a nuisance it would be for all helpers and students to have to join sites just to see their HJT logs? Can you imagine the nightmare it would create for administrators who would be forced to come up with a special rank for students and/or helpers from other sites and keep the status of those additional members updated? It would be an overwhelming task just to give access to trainees from various schools and then keep up to date on who has dropped out or been removed. Believe me, there's more than enough to do already in administering forums without adding unnecessary tasks to the workload. It's far less work to remove the occasional misguided post than it would be to keep track of who should or should not be allowed to view HJT logs. It doesn't make sense to trade a small task for a mammoth one. The reason why Freshmen can only view their own Practice Logs at MRU is simple. It's to prevent cheating. If a trainee cannot see the other students' Practice Log answers, then they cannot copy them.
  2. I agree that's a much more sensible solution. I understand that both Bleeping Computer and Geeks To Go have forum modifications in place that allow everyone to view HijackThis topics, but only the staff and/or the original poster can reply.
  3. I think it's a terrible idea. Those who analyze and remove malware, or are in the process of learning to analyze and remove malware, need to research log topics at many help sites across the internet. Obviously, they need to be able to view those topics in order to research them. It is not possible, nor desirable, for every helper to be on staff at every help site. The system that's being proposed here, if implemented at enough help sites, would do nothing but help the bad guys as it would become almost impossible for the good guys to access sufficient needed data.
  4. This is great! Just look at all the familiar "faces." It's like old home week.
  5. We missed you! Glad to see you're back, and the new site looks great!
  6. Congratulations! It's certainly good to see you back up and running again!
