Frequently Asked Questions
Why is there a box around messages and profiless?
The box which appears around the text of each message and profile on the site is not just there to look pretty.
For example, an administrator will never tell you to log off in a message sent through Romance.ucam.org - if, as happens very occasionally, an administrator needs you to log off to administer the server, it will be announced in the banner at the top of the page. Also, just like a bank will never phone you up and ask your for your credit card details, no administrator will ever contact you asking for your e-mail address, password or any other personal details. [Such actions are known as "social engineering".] Please also read the FAQ on computer security.
