One big issue this site should fix is the Cookies framework as an opt in and not an opt-out.
Clear distinction for accepting all advertising cookies or essential cookies. This is important, because the site is available to users from EU, where GDPR is applicable and can lead to big fines, if found by a Data Protection Authority. As a person working in data privacy, i advise you to look into it as a high-level priority

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

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

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.
