    That's why there were pop-ups and banners warning you that you needed to grant us explicit permission or face account deletion well before this happened. We started the warning messages on December 17, weeks before the deadline.


    I definitely had no banners or pop ups or anything like that and I posted with my old account hours before it was deleted. Maybe these warnings were blocked by my adblocker, but since most browsers have adblockers already built in these days that should have been expected. Got no notification/pm/message on this forum either. All I got was an email from Curse that didn't even mention mtgsalvation and that went directly to my spam folder.

    Seeing how many important threads and users were deleted who now want their accounts back you quite obvisously failed to deliver the message properly. The EU laws may have been the reason why you had to delete the accounts, but not communicating the problem properly was your fault and only your fault.

    EDIT: Still have the emails in my spam folder and it never mentioned mtgsalvation, not in the header and not in the mail itself. It's ridiculous, the email just reads 'consent required for uninterrupted service' sent from 'The Curse Team'. That sounds like the very definition of a spammy phishing mail if you don't know who 'The Curse Team' is and my email program (Thunderbird) acted accordingly and put it where such emails belong.

    I get the 'What's been happening at MTG Salvation' emails from...actual MTG Salvation... every once in a while and these don't go to my spam folder. Would it have been so hard to use the same system to deliver the warning about the EU privacy laws/account deletion? Uhh

    We've heard back from the legal team, and because you did not explicitly Accept the transfer, the deletion of your posts are threads are permanent.


    First off I know this is not your (the moderators) personal fault, so my rant is directed at the people who run this site.

    I'm the first one to say that EU data laws are made by paranoid idiots, but it's not the EU law that caused this mess. You sent an automated email from 'curse' that said something about an account getting suspended. And that's all you did to inform us about this serious issue. This email probably went directly to the spam folder of many people. When I see an email from an unknown origin in my spam folder that says something about my account getting suspended and me needing to verify information then I just delete it immediately. This is what most sane people would do since it is almost always some kind of phishing attempt. I didn't even know this site was run by a company called Curse and I don't care about it either.

    There would have been many reasonable ways to ensure everyone gets informed properly. You could have automatically logged out people who were affected by this and then asked them on login whether they would agree to have their data transferred. Problem solved. But it seems you simply didn't care and now tens of thousands of posts and even more importantly many carefully crafted threads are gone forever.

    This is unacceptable and that's why personally I'm done with this forum. I did create a Twitch account when I had to even though I don't use it and just a few months later everything I posted gets deleted because of some other bs. What's next? I don't want to find out.

    I would like to have my account restored if possible. Username was Phitt77.

    Seriously, what the hell. The notifications from Curse apparently landed in my spam folder and I never saw them. Only found out about them now by doing some detective work on my own. Sending an autmated email to my spam folder from 'Curse' (wouldn't even have known it was related to MTGSalvation even if I would have seen it) was the only way to inform me that everything I ever posted on this forum within the last few years would be deleted? Unbelievable.

    What happened to my account? Had to login again today and now I'm user xyz with 1 post?
    Looks like it happened to that dude up there, too. User-2364....


    And not only that, looks like everything I ever posted was deleted as well. Including the average peasant cube thread. What the hell.

    EDIT: Found out what caused it. Hopefully I can get my posts back. It's unbelievable how stupid some people are, but that doesn't fit into this thread. Sorry for being off-topic.

    Yeah, I am still not seeing the appeal of light up the stage how is it better than tormenting voice?


    It's one card more for one mana less. There are some hoops to jump through, but it's a very reasonable expectation for aggressive low curve decks that you'll get a one mana Divination most of the time in a color that normally has no card draw.

    Forgot about this card, will definitely add it as well.
