Cool, but how did a user post a announcement?

Interesting that Stingray27 hasn't posted since Feb. of 2010, and now he is posting announcements? Suddenly has(d) Moderator permissions?

That account is one of our test accounts which is why he was able to post an announcement.

Try a search before posting for help. Many users won't, and don't, help if the question has been answered several times before.
W3Schools -
Online vBulletin Manual
If I post some CSS and don't say where it goes, put it in the additional.css template.
I will NOT help via PM (you will be directed to post in the forums for help.)

I wonder if there was an identical test account at vbulletin.com with the same password?

Hey I see where you were going with this - Would have been shocking if not a staff member

I have not asked yet but I would assume simply becoming sidetracked while multi-tasking or perhaps company at the door heck I alone had to delay a few people on skype this weekend, people kept coming over to see me .

Could be, I doubt it has the same password though considering recent events.

^ As Lynne said it's a legitimate account, no worries folks I know some of you are concerned over recent events but don't let a staff member here doing some testing rile you up that much .

This was not a legitimate test by anyone.

Whoever was using that account was not authorized, I would strogly advise anyone who ran that announcement code to change their password (again if necessary).

Oh dear oh dear......
Looks like a bit more of a clean up and secure up needs doing.
I can see these problems going on for a while guessing how much info they got with the hack of here and the vb dot com site.
