    We've updated to the latest version of XF which means among other things that members are required to signify acceptance of our Privacy Policy and TOS/Rules. This is necessary in order to comply with GDPR.

    Thanks to XenForo for this update which makes it easy for forum owners (and relatively painless for our members) to be in compliance with the new regulations.

    That's great! It's also a great opportunity to remind people what they are agreeing to in the Terms and Conditions, which are usually forgotten in the blink of an eye, so it's a good reminder and also logged as being agreed - spot on and well done for doing this ASAP.

    :tup:

    BTW, you may want to look at enabling the cookie notice for guests.

    Though not sure if you’ll have issues because of the “sign up now” banner thing you have.

    Enabled, and I don't see any issues with it.
    So guests can ignore the cookie notice and continue to browse the site without accepting?

    Yep and by doing so they’re consenting. They’ll just be doing it with a notice in the footer on every page.

    Yeah it stays visible which is good. But it does hide your sign up banner. This one at the bottom:

    We found it eaiser and more effective to just ban anyone from the EU.

    Inadvertantly this has greatly increased the quality of the content posted on the site.

    we should of done this years ago.

    Thank You

    What does this mean even? EU users can’t post quality content? I do think some are taking this a bit far.

    Maybe I'm particularly anal today, but why exactly do we need to agree to the privacy policy and TOS? We already know they exist, and neither of them contain personally identifying information.

    I'm just happy you can't see me naked sitting at my terminal.

    Or can you?
