IMPORTANT - ROT FORUMS / PLAYER PORTAL BACK UP

Post#1 » Sat May 19, 2018 11:38 am

Due to the new European GDPR regulations rolling out on 5/25/2018, we will be turning down the ROT forums registration on 5/24/2018, and Player Portal until further notice.

We use PHPBB and it is not compliant with the new regulations. I will be messing around with the forum to see if we can keep the forums up in read only state and disable all login / registration capabilities so we don't lose information.

I will be working on the Player Portal to create a stand alone login page that will use your game account information which is not covered by the new law. Unless, Phpbb releases a new compliant version in the next couple of days, the registration turn down will be unavoidable.

Just a reminder that we will be turning down the forums and the Player Portal until further notice tomorrow.

I will be working on implementing changes to get us compliant with the new EU law, but with my availability it may be several weeks to a month before I can get them back online and proven compliant. I cannot risk being fined millions of dollars for a site / product that is just sustaining itself.

Hi Brian
I notice this post : https://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtop ... &t=2464776
I am not yet sure it can solve completely the issue, but I share it nonetheless. I'll report also any solution found on PHPBB forum building found by other forums I wander in.
Good luck
Samyx
