    We have upgraded to the latest version of XenForo (1.5.21) and it entails numerous updates.

    A summary of the changes in this release are as follows:
    • Ensure the server side validates the privacy policy/terms and rules acceptance form
    • Ensure certain fields output in the data portability exports are escaped
    • Some small phrase adjustments
    • Attempt to ensure the new cookie notice does not hide the footer links
    • Ensure data portability features are only available to admins with the "Manage users" permission
    • If the geoLocationUrl option is empty, no longer attempt to link a user's location
    • If a user's location is linked, ensure that noreferrer and nofollow values are set
    • Implement the ability to add an unsubscribe link to admin sent emails
    • Fix issues with selecting the new bottom fixer notice type
    • Fix for invalid CSS
    • Fix broken register_twitter template

    Per a request from XenForo and Google AdSense, we are going to provide an update on our compliance to GDPR Privacy regulations from the European Union. This directly effects citizens AND/OR residents of the European Union.

    Right of Erasure
    With this update we will be able to, by request, to delete and erase users and their posts. Under this new regulation, deleted users will have their names erased and replaced by a pseudonym, by request.

    Right to data portability
    Per the EU's GDPR regulation, we will be required to give an XML file containing machine readable data about the user. The file will include conversations, posts, messages, and other pieces of data. This is so that users will be allowed to move between competitors, without needing to restart.

    Right to be informed
    We are no able to update our Privacy and Terms. This is more so for allowing sites to better tell their users what their terms are.

    This is an assurance, and supplements the "Right to be informed" part of the regulation.

    A cookie consent regulation, that is quite obviously there. All users may get an alert or they might see a banner that is implemented. It may or may not already be there.
