By now I am sure we have all seen the log system which logs which pages you have visited, when you visited them and where you visited them from (Only you can see your own logs)
What I am considering now is if a form is populated, it also logs the form contents - obviously this won't be the case for username and password, but if you answer a challenge with the word 'revolution' this will appear in the log also.
Obviously this is going to have to be filtered as it is output in the html, and I'm not sure if it is worth the effort as logs are cleared (or at least archived) when they hit a certain size anyway...

What do you think?

I you plan to use the logs for "answer" retrival, I don't think it's work the time spent on it. The answer will not remember you how to solve it. In my case, I try to keep some tracks on my computer. If you want to make something about answer remembering, I would suggest adding a "solution" page that could only be access when you already solve that chall.

My thinking behind it was actually so that a user can check what they already tried Smiley

But I agree that it doesnt seem worth the effort. Wink

Seeing what you've tried previously would be incredibly useful. Coming back to challenges months later, you'd be able to avoid repeating all your previous mistakes.

Or is there a connection between sabrefilms and Groundhog Day?
