What if the user enters the same location as his FB account, just to overwrite it, and uploads the same avatar as he has in FB.
It's not FB data anymore.
This is indeed true, however chances are pretty low that avatar, location, interests, signature etc. are exactly the same set at your forum as on Facebook
In that case the Facebook terms probably don't apply anymore, even though I can't say for sure of course.
But once again, chances are pretty low ... and the data importer would be useless if people entered these details themselves

IF i disable data importing, so no avatars, and stuff like that,and set data syincing to 0 there will be no data syncing on my board?
If you disable data importing only, data syncing should be disabled too.
And this indeed disables the importing of avatars, location, interests, ... everything like that!
As said, I'll probably going a new direction for the data importing, unless anyone has better ideas to get round the possible issues caused if the sync script "crashes".
For giving you guys an estimate on the possible slowdown on viewing topics when it needs to download data from Facebook for 15 different users on one page ... this may slow down the script for up to ~0.5 seconds (max
). Usually the Facebook servers send a response pretty fast. Next to that, the Facebook API library has probably build-in controls to handle timeouts or errors in a short manner of time, to make sure the page doesn't turn white for any error related to the datafetching
