Does this mean if we PM a moderator, all the mods and admins can see the PM but if it's to another member you can't?

Am I making stuff up/misunderstanding?

It means no moderator can read a PM unless the member the PM was sent to, is sent to a moderator. It has to be forwarded for "them" to see it.

Feels good to know.

But if only the moderator can see what you said, or all, it does not say. But I assume whether all can see it or not, they are free to discuss it between moderators.

So all PMs to moderators or admin go to one giant inbox and they all read the PMs to each other?

I'm scaring myself again, do I need to try relax or am I right that there's a giant inbox it all goes to if it's to a mod?

I don't think moderators can see your PMs. That's been the case for every forum I've ever been. That's why they always ask users for help when something happened through PMs only

I have a feeling that they go to separate moderators inboxes. Because when I had a question and PM'd them, the same one got back to me.

CAN WE BREATHE NOW?

Whew. I don't know why I catastrophize. I apologize for that. I can sometimes just snap into this mood where EEP it's all wrong it will never be right!!!

I need to work on that.
