GDPR Official Extension

Post by Ideas Bot » Wed Apr 25, 2018 8:41 am

Maybe it can make some people happier & stop that pointless cycle in phpBB Discussion forum about GDPR. All the info that is needed => Reference Re: New GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and phpBB

I'm sorry for double post, but there's no way to edit first post. I forgot to mention, that there is one more way how to handle this. Assign Official status if it's possible to [3.2][RC] Privacy Policy extension.

This extension is better suited for the purposes we have - and it's in active development status: https://github.com/tas2580/privacyprotection

If you want to request an extension, official or otherwise, you should make an extension request.

Yeah, title is misleading. Let's put it like this: decline or accept (reference link in my first post, that is pointing to a post made by CHItA). Yes or no, that is all there is. After official answer we can all do whatever we were doing.
PS. If official answer will be no, then this idea can be deleted, because there's no need to make it as a new (4-th?) discussion topic about gdpr & people can focus on one of those extensions mentioned above. There's nothing more to add.

GDPR / DGSVO Official Extension

Hello, an official extension for the software phpBB speak (a software that is used worldwide - even in Europe). And this request to the development team should not be overlooked. There is a chance for phpBB in and for Europe.

A start has been made: Many thanks in this moment to tas2580

Regards
Currently occasionally online .. ♪ ♫ Best regards

As per the link that was used to start this request
....if you handle more sensitive data and you need more features, then it is your responsibility to implement them. In general, it is your responsibility to comply with any laws that you're a subject of, and in case of GDPR we are not able to solve everything for every one

I fully agree. Everything that is mentioned in that post is more than enough.

This is serious? :shock:

Others update their software ... for example, Wordpress, Joomla, Drupal, etc. for this new "rule", and the European users of phpBB should we request an extension, be it official or not?

This should be part of the phpBB core, to adapt to the laws or regulations of its users, unless Spanish, French, Italian, Portuguese, etc. users. let's not be part of phpBB

I'm really impressed. :roll: :?

I'm very strongly inclined to agree (to put it mildly).
phpBB as it is released now, forces the admin to change some default setting and change the registration agreement in order to be more or less compliant with GDPR (preferably more).
Not every admin is knowledgeable enough to "mess" with the files nor understands what has changed!
A bug is a feature that hasn't made it to the manual (yet)
