    Exactly.

    Further it is weird, that threads/Posts have been deleted - but profile pictures not.


    Profile pics are much more of "personal data" (especially when it's a rl pic).

    Even if not visible in public, it still has been there, which means, it must have been still somewhere in your database.


    Not that I'd be personally disturbed by that, just the whole thing doesn't follow any logic.


    Profile pictures have been deleted, but not necessarily at the same time as other content/info linked to an account.
    I have my own account as an example of this.

    posted a message on Tinkers' Construct 2
    Quote from Tekimimotaku»
    Hello! This is my favorite Minecraft mod by far, because of the number of possibilities of weapons alone. I love making different tool sets with different metals. I mostly play in the 1.7.10 version, but the forge version will not launch anymore. I have done some research and concluded that the web support for forge 1.7.10 is no longer active. So I looked for some mods with ore additions and couldn't find one that was both compatible and didn't add in extra stuff like mobs. Is it possible for the team to make an optional add on with all the old ores? If so, being able to make my favorite combinations again would make my whole year! If the team doesn't want to, then could you at least point me in the direction of a good ore mod compatible with T construct?

    Something something Base Metals? It's a WIP mod, so expect some hitches, but the mod adds, among other materials, copper, tin an aluminium (sorry :( ) and should work quite well with Tinkers' Construct.

    Instead of aluminium, the mod adds zinc, which can be combined with copper to make Brass, which can also be used for TiC casts if I am not mistaken.

    Ah, I see. The download links on the official PR wiki don't work anymore since Curse changed the project page urls...

    To be honest, I wouldn't know if anyone from the PR team still checks this forum anymore, though. The wiki states that you should use a forum PM or IRC for that kind of contact.

    Forum OP was edited:

    • As recovering of the old thread may be impossible, this thread will be our official forum thread for now.

    We have a new programmer who has taken an interest in developing the dungeon configuration system further.
    Zombie, WaterPicker and I continue to be sleepers on the team for a while. I can not speak for the others, but I may start on the project again in 2-3 months.

    And finally, all of our releases on CurseForge are now marked Beta as we no longer deem them stable enough to call them full releases.

    posted a message on Mowzie's Mobs: Powerful overworld enemies and more! - Version 1.5.14: Down below and up above!
    Quote from PCAwesomeness»
    Have you paid attention to the newest update at all?

    Apparently I have not paid a lot of attention to the naming of the mob.


    Yet, I very distinctly remember someone posting to a mobs mod thread about a Naga or a creature named like a mob that I initially know from a different Mob Mod like the Twilight Forest. In that thread, the mob author remarked something like "there is no such thing as a Naga in this mod". All of this was several months (maybe over half a year) ago, though.


    I did not miss the screenshots of what I would typically call a wyvern, but I did miss that there was talk of a mob called a Naga specifically in this mod since last November. All posts between last november and September 2015 mentioning a Naga in this thread have either been deleted or just never existed.

    I guess I must have been confuzzled.

    I can't seem to find anything on it, but what is the status of this mod working for 1.13.2?


    What's the status of mods working on MC 1.13 in general? ;)

    [...]
    I still can't spawn Naga on multiplayer either.


    That is intended behaviour as this mod contains no such thing as a Naga.
    Don't mind me.

    I'm no lawyer or have much understanding of article 29 but looking at https://www.itgovernance.eu/blog/en/the-gdpr-understanding-the-right-to-data-portability quickly it seems data portability relates to analytics held on a person not the content they posted.

    I may be wrong there though as I only glanced at the page I linked


    Thank you for looking into it. :)

    I'm sorry. I'm just grasping at every straw I can find. :(

    2. I am trying to visit a thread that has been deleted ("HTTP Code: 404 Status Text: error", or "Not found")

    Unfortunately many of the most popular threads on the forum were created by users within the EEA who did not consent to the transfer of their data. Their threads have been deleted and unless we obtain their consent (through the reclamation of their account) we will not be able to restore their thread.


    Since I am still able to visit my own threads that were deleted (OP shows as deleted) and see the replies in those threads of users whose account was not deleted, I know for a hard fact that the messages in these threads that were not explicitly deleted themselves.

    As such, citricsquid, even if it turns out that deleted thread OPs and other messages can not be restored in the future, might you still pursue to make these deleted threads visible again? Or at least their non-deleted content?
    Quote from RetroMC»
    I agree that the System is flawed.

    I don't live in Europe and never have been there. The poster states it only contacted people in Europe when i know my account was set to Australia and have never been to the European Union. Something went wrong on your end.


    If the system could not identify you as not living in the EU, you should have had the e-mails and pop-ups before your account was deleted. Even if you actually live in Australia.

    Please understand that they had to make sure. That is how laws work.

    @TheMasterCaver
    Based on the % of pages that disappeared of Azanor's Thaumcraft thread, which is about 14% I would estimate that about 25% of all messages on the MC forums (0,14 + (1 - 0,14) * 0,14) got either deleted directly, or hidden in deleted threads. I don't know where you get your "third of all posts/threads," but extrapolation says that it isn't quite as bad as you state, so I'd like to hear your reasoning. ;)

    @everyone who cares to listen to my rant:
    Fandom... I am a member of +- 60 pretty active Minecraft related Discords and not once have I heard about the sale/change of ownership of these forums to Fandom before my account was deleted.
    The big news in the MC community right now is that Azanor seems to have stopped modding for good. There were mentions about all of the user accounts being deleted on these forums, even on Discords in which I was not the one who brought it up, but that was the news; not the change of ownership of the forums to Fandom.
    On top of that, every time this forum changes hands, this seems to be joined with a tremendous loss of users and in this case even the loss of a quarter of our historical data.

    When I joined these forums they were a great place to meet new people, get valuable information about Minecraft and modding and joke around.
    I am sad to see this forum decline in this way. And it seems like it's not slowing down either. It's speeding up.
    The less the forum is useful to its users, the less it is worth to the owner, the more likely they are to sell or get rid of it, the less useful it becomes to its users. It's a vicious cycle and there is no stopping it. :(

    At the current rate, I wonder if these forums will even exist anymore in 5 years...

    Can we just archive it the way it is, so it can not get any worse?

    posted a message on What is up with all the "User1234567" names?

    Hmm, I may be mistaken, but doesn't the same European law also state that we as the users of this platform have a right to data portability, which should basically mean that these forums are obliged to hand our own data back to us if we so happen to ask for it?
    And with handing it back, I do not necessarily mean that the data should be restored on the forums. Another medium, perhaps a zip-file containing the content, dates and thread titles of all our posts and messages, would suffice as well.

    I wonder how that'd relate to data that has already been deleted from the platform, though...

    Don't mind me. I am just thinking out loud. :bouncyspider: by MineWarCrafter

    As I understand it we cannot do that, it would not comply with our legal obligations. I agree that content should not be deleted and that it is very unfortunate content has been deleted but we were obligated to do so to comply with our legal obligations, if we could have avoided this we absolutely would have, it's as painful for us as it is for everybody else.

    So where can I go to sue the European government? ;)

    So sad to hear that, Azanor. I hope everything goes great in your live <3


    Well, at least Azanor did not manage to get their account deleted like you and I apparently did...
    Speaking of which, I have a pinned tab in Firefox that still says that this thread has 2009 pages. That means that at least 286 pages worth of messages have been lost on this thread alone.

    Also, I hope that Azanor will hop in from time to time on here and/or Discord to chat with us. Even though you will not be able to entertain us with your great content for any longer, we still appreciate your work and dedication through the years and you will remain in our hearts forever. :)

    Does this only apply to people in Europe?\


    Also, what about the pinned threads like small suggestions that got deleted?


    I have an American friend who, however he did experience some trouble with the forums in the last few days, did NOT have their account removed, so I think that this mass-purge was based on IP and/or the country you set in your user settings.
    That is just my best guess, though. :)
    Quote from citricsquid»

    Just a quick update: we are working to determine our next steps forward, it's looking like we may be able to restore the posts and threads of users who have now consented to have their data transferred by logging in to the forum. Please be patient as we work through this, we will do everything we can to ensure there is the best outcome for everybody. I will keep this thread updated with any further news.


    Very good. Thank you for keeping us up to date. :)

    If you could restore all the posts, PMs and topics of users that got removed and just assign them to... <Deleted User> or something, that would be great.
    Just a thought. ;)

    Also, two important notes:
    1. Although I just logged in again, I have not yet technically seen this statement or accepted it, so you should not have any records of me saying that I do accept it, other than this message I am writing now. I still haven't seen such a button.
    Or is it so, that technically, whatever messages and replies we write on these forums now are in this other database and our consent was only needed to move our old messages there?

    2. The Bio on my profile probably contains more of my personal information than my +- 5300 forum posts and primary profile information did combined.
    So I don't know if you moved my bio to this new database, but I hereby give you permission to. :)

    Well whadayaknow?

    I just started a full-time job a few months back and have been too busy to keep up with my secondary e-mail box, the one that I use to register my Minecraft and other hobby-related accounts.

    I have taken the time to, at least twice-weekly, check the forums themselves, though and I have posted from time to time as well. But... I also happen to use add-block.
    So those patch-y notifications of yours seem to have been repressed as well.

    Bottom line is, I seem to have lost everything just now...
    over 5000, almost 6000 messages, months of work, just down the drain.

    Needless to say, I am very pissed.


    At least, with the Twitch merge, I got forcefully logged out until I merged. There was no real choice there and no way around it.

    And what about those cookie messages that an add-block can not typically repress? Couldn't you have used something like that?
    This is sloppy, people. Sloppy to say the least.

    The secondary forum account, that I created for the dim-dev team was also deleted. Yes, it was created in Europe, but it wasn't even a 1-person account...


    All I want to know now is, where can I accept this stupid EULA thing and when will MY posts, messages and other content be restored?

    Regards,
    Mathew

    PS. I actually find this a little funny:

    Screeny I took a few months ago:

    posted a message on Dimensional Doors (1.12.2) is not dead!

    Hello everyone!


    I am just creating this thread to inform you that, although the official thread for the port of the mod was deleted, the Dimensional Doors project is not dead.
    It's just that the account that was used to make the OP of the thread was deleted and purged as a result of the Minecraft Forum staff's incapability to inform all EU users about their accounts' pending doom.


    I am Robijnvogel, the only Dimensional Doors developer currently active on the Minecraft Forums. My account and messages were deleted, which is why my post-counter is at a really low number right now, but my forum title of Portal Expert, which you only get after some 5000 forum messages, stayed, so if you do not believe that I am who I say that I am, please explain that. ;)

    I will try to recover my own account, posts, messages and those of the Dimensional Development MCF account.

    Would it appear to be impossible to do so, then I plan on leaving these forums indefinitely after asking this thread to be locked.

    List of my posts about this subject on other threads:

    Current status:

    • Since I may not be able to dig up the Twitch login of our development team account, restoring the Dimensional Doors forum thread may prove impossible even the forum staff succeed in restoring user-reported accounts.
    • If and when it is possible to restore the old new Dimensional Doors thread, this post will be updated and the thread will be locked.

    Regards,
    Mathew


    PS: For now, this thread can be viewed as the official MC Forums Thread for this mod/project, however for questions you will most likely be referred to our Discord.
