    Requirements to agree to Privacy and Terms for all users

    Don't worry, the edict is rescinded. I just added Gmail to the Junk Providers, maybe months ago in vBulletin times of yore --- and included it in the jolly nice green notice unregistered people see warning them not to register with bad emails. There are maybe 7000 junk email providers in...

    Requirements to agree to Privacy and Terms for all users

    With the latest upgrade XenForo has provided more tools for our compliance with GDPR. Naturally prospective registrants are required to agree to become members; but now all members however venerable have notices, with logged times, to separately agree to both the Privacy Policy and the Terms...

    XenForo 2.06 has been released ahead of time to put in additional tools for dealing with GDPR. Not a lot of bug fixes, just this GDPR rubbish. Release Note

    Xenforo is issuing a new iteration with all of that consent stuff. As to date of birth, where living etc. etc. why the hell wouldn't anyone just lie on internet forms ? I generally do.

    We cannot purge your posts, but we can anonymise you and all of those posts. Further we can issue you a privacy report. Obviously anyone who chooses this fearful exit must be banned forever afterwards. Kinda like Britain leaving the EU. Ain't no return this side of the grave.

    Hello

    And on the castled crag of Drachenfels, here's a blog on the Romantics with a dash of Rhine Romanticism, Morphosis: Indeed, Childe Harold 3 is divided into two phases: a 'horizontal' phase when Harold-Byron moves across Europe, musing on the pitiable nature of mortal humanity; and then a...

    Are suntans permament?

    Usually they fade even if some damage is done; permanently working out in the fields for years generally made people darker than they would be and weather-beaten. Same with those old girls in the 20th century who soaked up the Riviera sun. The first were poor and had little choice. The...

    Further, the Flags add on had to be updated ( under location ), and checking permissions for another thing, I saw each member group apparently needed enabling --- apparently, since I saw them OK --- so I went in each group... Sorry if you didn't see them for a while. The other thing was...

    Privacy Policy : A New Dawn

    The Cookies Help either came with the forum default, or was added by the previous Cookie add on. The Terms and Rules, as mentioned elsewhere, have to be found in Search Phrases, then the added additions with < p > liberally sprinkled were easy to edit in. The Privacy Policy I just created ab...

    Following this, and my post in the Translations thread on GDPR, a few hours ago XenForo announced coping mechanisms for the trauma to be implemented in 2.06, the next iteration of the software. XenForo : Upcoming changes for GDPR compliance in XF1 and XF2 This is excellent.

    K. However the Cookie add-on is only there as a stop-gap until a better comes along; just to get it there before 25th of May. If you prefer another that can be installed. Any other. So long as there's something. Of course, the GDPR police aren't going to come after us anyway, we were...

    Noble Status

    Since some have posted threads here, I had to do permissions for this sub-forum to stop that thing --- General is for Forum announcements etc. etc. --- which means setting permissions for each user-group separately. Idiotically XenForo collapses node ( = sub-forum ) moderation permissions...

    I don't think that works that way, although open to correction. When you join, you set your local time zone, so all displayed times are relative to that time zone. Of course one day everything will be UTC: The Difference Between GMT and UTC In the mean time I dream of setting computer time...

    Nah, URLJet has always been one of the shining lights of America, Cheyenne, WY to be exact. I rather think it was Kansas City before... Still, nearly a week's struggling... Sometimes I thought it gone, cos if back-ups don't work I couldn't recreate it from memory.

    I ran a search through a flat back-up on my computer, and my best guess is that these notes ( which are generally confused with user-notes when looking for 'xenforo notes', a note system for admins with too much time on their hands to make rude remarks about members, used elsewhere ) were...

    I don't actually know, since I never used Notes; however I would certainly guess they are still in existence on the server ( and on my back-ups of the forum [ generally as tar.gz ] ) --- but not accessible unless XenForo has a slip-in Notes-like addon that can automagically pick up the old...
