    I've restored the thread itself, but the user's posts are gone.

    I have reclaimed the thread Here.

    Note that any deleted posts within it will not be restored.
    The EU user did not opt in to have is information transferred.

    I'm in a holding pattern for some of these threads, as I get direction on what we can and cannot do, specifically.

    The community-driven primers might be able to come back, but most of the user-specific decklists will remain gone unless that user comes back.

    (Just wanted you to know I'm looking into all this, and not ignoring any post here.)

    It's not against the rules.

    You should still post in Here confirming you want your account back though, because the Tearful Reviews were nice and I'll miss them.

    MafiaScribe was deleted as part of the EU Privacy Laws Requiring Account Deletion.
    I've added him to a list of "try to recover" accounts.


    (tl;dr Because EU people use this account, it was flagged as being subject to EU Privacy Laws. Because no one ever logged in and hit "accept" as part of the Fandom switch, the account was deleted. EU Laws require an opt-in only policy, so it was deleted in accordance with EU law)

    Due to recent changes in EU privacy laws, whenever a person's personal data would transfer between companies, that person has to opt-in to allow this transfer to happen. This includes when one company buys another and the only "transfer" is simply a change of ownership. Most countries outside of the EU have an opt-out policy, which means the transfer will happen unless you specifically request your account to be deleted. The EU is different, however, and requires us to explicitly get permission or delete the account. We greatly value our user's privacy, not only conforming with all laws, but often exceeding them on our user's behalf.

    Curse Media was purchased from Twitch by Fandom, which means there's a change of ownership, and you can either allow your account, and any information tied to it, to "change owners" or have it deleted instead.

    Specifically: EU users have to explicitly say "let it happen".
    The site will serve both popups that you can accept, as well as emails to EU users where they can accept.

    As an EU user, you had to explicitly agree to the popups/emails that went out.
    If you didn't, your account, posts, threads, comments, and personal data were all deleted in accordance with EU law.

    As part of the EU Account Deletion, some threads may disappear when an EU user didn't opt in and their account is deleted.

    If the Thread is an ongoing discussion, or of other importance, let me know here so I can find it and resurrect it.
    As long as it's not something specific to the OP who's account was deleted, etc, I can Zombify it.

    Just let me know what the thread was, what it's name was, and (importantly) where the thread was.
    Since you can't link me to it, I'll have to go digging for it.

    We are in the active process of deleting these accounts.

    If you wish to have your account restored, post here with your previous account name, etc, or contact us on Facebook.
    We may or may not be able to restore it in this small window before the full ownership changes.
    The developers will look into this next week, once all of this has finished processing.

    Once we have fully transitioned to Fandom, however, please note that all data will be lost forever.

    BTW, forgot to mention (but stating now) the "Subaru envelope" was just the envelope used to mail out my submissions to Bobthefunny, as it's size was best to hold the SASE (self addressed stamped envelope) and the alters in. The actual SASE used was a PWE (plain white envelope) w/ a stamp and my address on it. I received my alters in my own envelope.
    Was the envelope you have pictured the SASE that you received it back in?
    Because that envelope is post marked from Minneapolis, MN.
    Pretty sure neither Bob nor You are from MN, so....

    Was the outer Subaru envelope that you reused originally addressed to MN?

    I greatly prefer to design cards that could realistically be printed in the real world.

    Your exampled white haste, for instance, has been printed a grand total of exactly 1 time. That one instance was a very special circumstance, where they wanted a legendary angel "that has ALL of the abilities". Even with that "all abilities", haste and trample were still hotly contested, and ended up being left only because - explicitly - white shouldn't have those abilities and it made it quite exceptional.

    Exceptional cards can exist, but they should be absolutely rare and have a very strong case as to why they should be exceptional. Otherwise you're probably not just bleeding or bending the color pie, you're breaking it.

    If you can represent the ability and concept without breaking the color pie, you absolutely should. Which is the entire point of this whole discussion, and ultimately proved to create a beautiful ability that stayed within the pie and represented the concept well. A good designer, which most of us here try to be, doesn't need to break the pie to get what they want. They just have to be creative and think outside of the box.

    Yeah, it should lose "the next time".
    Much like when/whenever, the ability would be worded to assume it won't happen more than once.

    Wondering how strong it would be if we lost the cost.
    On one hand, no activation makes it stronger when you need it.. but you'll also not always want it to come back, but will be forced to.

    When Bodach Omenreader enters the battlefield, scry 3.
    When Bodach Omenreader would die, instead put it into its owner's library second from the top.
    3/5
    It'll take some playing with, but I think the ability is spot on.
    Thank you guys.
    It mostly started as a brain excercise.. but now I think I'm sold on using it!

    Ohhhhh. I like that. A lot.
    That is definitely in blue's pie, represents the real-world ability well, and isn't something we see everyday to boot.
    I think you've nailed down something that fits the mold and concepts perfectly.

    I'm not ready to call it quits, since there's always more great ideas, but this gets a 10 of 10 from me.
