Sometimes when I go to Options>Citizen I get other pplz membership details.
I also have the ability to change them which is scary. I think AW should
correct this.

Yes, thats happened to me once before when I was a newbie and tried cloning someones name, I was using max bandwidth and actually managed to see all their info and i changed it (without realiseing it was not mine) so I had to pull my internet connection before it tried to apply

But, you cant *really* change it, I'd hope. Unless there was a *huge* flaw
in the session number/random ident system, which I doubt.

Well the most reccent time I wasn't able to but before I have been able
too... maybe they are a step closer, but if someone has something to UNMASK
everything then they could get passwords, etc.

Do this:

Get a game trainer, select Active Worlds as the process, now search your
citnum as a string. Change all results to 1 and click help, about...What do
you know? Citizen number one. Now goto your citizen attributes, it looks up,
tells you are AWLD. Although when clicking OK it will give you error 32. 32
of course means UNAUTHORIZED. You can also look up other people's citizen
info. Although, it will give most of the stuff as yours or blank. Try
applying changes... Reason 32...

An identity claiming to be known as "joeman" <joeman at bootdown.com> scribed the following <3db9cb57$1 at server1.Activeworlds.com> in wishlist:

Could still use something like 'Revelation' to unmask passwords... Then log into the account after restarting AW and you're in.

Major prob if I may say.

But, you cant, because it never returns the password. The password they're
seeing is their own password.

I doubt that the uniserver sends the password to the browser,
this would be a violation of all security concepts.

It doesn't--if you pay attention to the PW field, you'll notice there is a small delay between the PW field & the rest of the fields being filled in.

No they couldent because all you can do is lookup the citnum, citname and URL.. which is all thats needed.

Yes.. I did notice that when I tried it to see a few minutes ago, must have been a 1 time error or something, maybe worth looking into.

This sounds like a bug. Are you on the beta? Click Help --> About... and see what build number you have.

[View Quote] Ok, come on. This is from a month ago; let it rest. Especially since offering help
won't be much use.

That would tend to depend among other things on weather or not he's still using the same build as he was a month ago, don't you think?

[View Quote] Or that schmucks don't respond to threads older than a month... Since you're not
really adding any new information just trying to solve a problem that's probably been
solved.

And how do you know? I read the whole thread, and I didn't notice any mention of it having been solved.

If it's over three weeks old, it's bound to have been resolved outside of the NGs.

How do you "know"? Did you major in deadlines in college? Is there some law of nature that says problems solve themselves in 3 weeks or less? Okay, so I was trying to post something helpful, and in reply I get people trying to help me understand how they percieve time. Although the attempt is appreciated, I don't think it's working.

[View Quote] He doesn't, but it's an educated guess. Helpful is in the eye of the beholder; just
stick to new posts... old posts are removed from peoples newsgroups most often.
Unless they have a sudden urge to be packrats like KAH and myself. This is a
newsgroup and usually posts over 3 weeks are considered "resolved" by that point.

This is the wishlist newsgroup. True, the post that started this particular thread should probably have went into the beta bewsgroup, but perhaps the person who posted it wasn't on the beta team at the time, and anyway it's not my place to decide. What I knew about it at the time I responded to it is that it looked like a bug and that the person who mentioned it was probably correct in stating that it should be fixed. The logical thing to do at that point, in my poinion, was to ask for more information. If no more information was given I would have considered it a dead topic "at that time" and left it alone. If nobody replies to it at this time I would also consider this a dead topic and leave it alone. I did not feel, in my own opinion, that the right thing for me to do was to decide that it was a dead topic. In fact, the last reply to the thread up to that point ended in "maybe worth looking into" which sounds to me more like an unresolved topic than a dead topic. Perhaps I'm the only person reading this newsgroup who doesn't feel he has the mental capacity necessary to make an educated enough guess when it comes to deciding how impoerant something is to another person, but I know that I myself have things that I've posted years ago in this newsgroup that I'm still hoping will some day make it into a version of Active Worlds, and I'm guessing that I'm not the only person who has placed things in the wishlist more than 3 weeks ago that are still just as important as they were at the time they were posted and are still not implemented in a release fersion of Active Worlds. I don't consider them dead topics at all. Only dormant.
