Is it still a requirement of the game that screenshots are in the public domain for anyone to see ?

    What screenshots do you talk about, the ones we post on steam or the pbss's that are made?.

    I don't know what this means. Your screenshots are your screenshots.

    I think he means that PB must have access to your screen during gameplay on a PB protected server?

    If it's about the PBSS, then no. You can keep them private if you don't want to share them publicly, some server make their PBSS public so other people can see them but that is optional for each server owner to do.

    It was pbss i was on about sorry for the confusion but i was a requirement in the past so everyone could see there was nothing to hide but if it is optional then no problems thanks.

    As a player, theres nothing you can do about PBSS, its up to the server admin to make the PBSS public or not.
    Some servers might have a requirement that you return useful PBSS tho, but thats mostly a driver issue, but that has nothing to do with the screenshots being public or not.

    OK so how do you keep servers clear of cheats if admins can not look at the screenshots returned from users. We all know we can not rely on punkbuster and i get annoyed when good players are accused of cheating because they are good and not cheating. Surely public screenshots has everyone playing the game, keeping the game clean for all to enjoy.

    There is a force screen shot function that server owners can set up.

    Server Owners are always able to look at the PBSS's with FTP Access or as some hosts do in their control panel, not having it publicly doesn't mean there are none taken. Now if the server has multiple admins running it's to the owner to decide to put it publicly so other admins from that server have access to it.

    My server screenshots can be viewed here http://217.146.91.82:10007/msgpbssv.html our second server screenshots can be viewed here http://217.146.91.84:10007/msgpbssv.html most server owners have their screenshots public the only ones I know that keep them private are official servers.
