Well then would it be possible to 'reset' everybody's access so that they have to 're-enrol' and provide consent and perhaps the activation emails could include the data consent as a belt & braces approach? I will try and PM you a copy of our GDPR notice which would need a tweak but might help. Sorry if these suggestions are of no help, I have absolutely no idea how you manage the forum and the undoubted work involved!

Because of the GDPR regs that have caused you to change the profile access function Brian, I can't PM you our GDPR notice! ConfusedIf you can PM me or email me I can maybe reply?

Changing the forum software is out of my league. Not possible to "reset" things in that way.

Are you saying the PM function no longer works?

Pm function still works, use the drop down menu when you click on my name to the left of this post.
I had to invent a new member to check. But it is true that you can no longer see other members' profiles.

But looking at the registration form (to remind myself) the only mandatory information required is username, password, email, name and location. The first 3 are essential for the forum to work. Real name is asked to try to prevent trolling, and location is for convenience as it's useful to know roughly where members are posting from, even which country, as it does affect answers to questions.

So in that respect I think I could claim the forum has a "legitimate interest" in keeping that data.

All the other options on the registration form have to be opted into, you have to request emails to be sent to you to advise you of PMs, and posts you are interested in. So since everyone has already specifically opted in (or not) to those, they should be covered.

Well, the only method I have used involved tapping on your user name at the top of the post which used to bring up your profile and this included the option to PM you. Is there another way? Sorry if I am being a bit dim!

Just tried again Brian, no good. I use a kindle fire maybe that has something to do with the way it displays? I just get the message saying I do not have access to the members profile in red.

When you click on the username, you get a drop down list.

Member's profile,
Send Private Message,
Find member's posts,
Add to buddy list.

All still work apart from access to profile.

Do you not see these?

OK, having checked, the above only works in classic view, as in on a computer. It doesn't in mobile view which you see on a tablet or phone.

You can still send a PM by going to the private message tab at the top of the page, then new message. Then enter the username of the recipient. If you can't remember the full username, you can search, just put in the first couple of letters of the name.

Wait a minute, the stuff on member' profile that other members can (or used to) see, are already ONLY what said member wants to be displayed, and the forum code allows to be displayed. E.g. the member's log-in password would not be one of the things that can be shown.

Also you don't have members' home addresses, phone numbers, bank accounts numbers, credit card numbers, etc. etc., so I can't see there's much of a problem really?

Passwords cannot be seen by anyone. They are encrypted.

All members can see of other members is their username and any information placed in posts. The latter is of course voluntary.

I will have to put together some sort of privacy notice to post.

It is all very confusing, when you look at what other organisations are doing. Some have only issued a privacy statement, yet I asked to volunteer for the local Wildlife Trust, and have just had an email from them telling me I have to "opt in" to receive future emails. Surely by asking to volunteer, I opted in. Confused

This is red tape we are talking about and looks to have been introduced without thought for the smaller organisations. (so nothing new there then)
Many small charities are struggling with this problem, as, like us, they are run by volunteers.

Yes, I do agree with you there. I can't even see any justification for it to apply to small forums such as this.

Maybe it's a subtle plan to close all self help forums to make people spend lots of money supporting the main dealers. Wink

I agree it's very confusing, when I was looking at it couldn't make head or tail of the mountains of blurb. Sounds like gobbledegook. I predict loads of people to have gotten it all wrong when the date arrives. Confused

Yep, all very confusing indeed. However, I don't think the intention is to make difficult for the gazillions of community forums such as this. So long as it is clear that there is no intent to misuse data (and there clearly isn't) and that reasonable attempts to gain informed consent for the very limited information held has been made (and you are doing so) I cannot see that the information police will be arresting you any time soon Brian. This is clearly aimed at the likes of Google, Amazon, fb etc. Who are commercial and exploit data without user consent for advertising and so on.
