What information about its users does slash collect, both when a user is just visiting the site and once they've logged in?"

  • I think that the information when a user do things in the slash site is in accesslog. If we look this table you find that is recorded: id, ip, uid,
    op (operation), dat (data for the operation), ts (time stamp), query_string and user_agent.


    Also there is another table called abuser to control the bad guys ;-)


    You have lots of information about what is doing the user in the site but you can not watch it ;-)
