Just wanted to highlight this one again, I don't think I ever got asked the question about how my data gets handled by the site, which is unlawful by now and would technically allow European users sue the site for it.

Best practices on it's implementation: https://edpb.europa.eu/our-work-tools/general-guidance/gdpr-guidelines-recommendations-best-practices_en

And if you want to read the whole legal text: https://gdpr-info.eu

it is mentioned the moment you sign up for an account

But what about those who already have an account? They must also be allowed to choose.

I just noticed it seems to be impossible to unsubscribe from locked threads. I was just looking and my subscription list and noticed I'm subscribed to https://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread/233930/cgis-hype-series-graphics-showdown-2018/ However, the unsubscribe link seems to be missing, and now I can't unsubscribe. Why do I want to unsubscribe? Well, the thread is no longer relevant, and I'd like to get rid of it from my subscription list. Doesn't the subscription list even have a maximum number of threads than can be there...?

I'm in the same boat with the moderator thread.



...to avoid getting banned for inactivity, I may have to resort to comments that are of a lower overall quality and or beneath my moral standards.

These ads are making it almost impossible to browse this site, huge ad on the top of the page and bottom leaving like an inch worth of browsing space. I understand Motorola is trying to see sell the Z flip but I dont want one



I didn't mean to reply to you but it's the only way I can make a post now. The scoll bar is gone, can't scroll with the mouse wheel or any other method

This is my view here now with no way to move the page

The only way to see more is to use the zoom function, at 50% I can reach reply :/

Ahh, it's back in this view, curious. Still missing in other views. It's there on initial load then disappears as soon as the Borat ad takes over the background. Same thing happens on Edge. This view doesn't have Borat (black) so the scroll bar gets to stay and the mouse wheel works as well.

The add changed (Call of Duty something now) and now the scroll bar stays. There's something wrong with Borat. It's a crapshoot, Borat comes behind, can't scroll. CoD pops up, can scroll. Btw, everything is very slow.

IDK whether it's already been suggested, but I have a suggestion for a forum function: if you view a single post coming there from the thread, you can see it again in the thread just going back, but if you arrive to a single post in another way, e.g. from notifications or from a search engine, the only way to see that post in its thread position is to browse the whole thread, only helped by the post date to narrow the search a little, and in very long threads it can be a long process even this way, a button that does the inverse function of the View Post one could be useful.

Thanks anyway for the good and huge job you and all the staff are doing in the site!

Can we please take away the ability of people without forum posts to spam on walls and DMs? Or maybe limit them in general? Nobody needs to write more wall posts than one per minute.

This problem with bots spamming people has been going on for months now. It has slowed down a bit but just now I got another one who spammed 200 posts on my wall in mere minutes.

edit: just came back to 400 new wall posts. Is there a way to delete wall posts when you ban those bots?

I've let CGI know to use spam delete on this spam bot so the spam can be mass deleted from your wall.

I do think that limited wall post to a certain post total or a time amount per post is not a terrible idea though.

Thank you.

Any reason why this "spam delete" is not just used on every spam bot? Seems useful. Just woke up to a new big wave.

Oh uhhhh... that's kind of my fault.

Not gonna get into the whole thing, but the spam delete is not labeled as well as it should be. And, because of that, I accidentally used it in some scenarios that I shouldn't have ^_^;;

After that, they decided to change the button to a head mod only feature to avoid similar mistakes happening in the future, which means for the time being, only CGI can use it and it may take longer for bots to be dealt with.
