    It's back again.

    The spam filter can get overaggressive sometimes, especially with long posts.
    You have enough posts now that it shouldn't bother you any more, though.

    Sorry >_<

    You'll have to hack in an override that sets the font-style to "Normal" instead of the italics.
    Just open it and close it right inside the [Quote] tag.
    There's a couple open-ended style tags.

    [Space] is the easiest that won't add any extra markup.
    [space=5px; font-style:normal;]

    Code:
    [quote from="ISBPathfinder »" url="/forums/community-forums/community-discussion/576824-the-mtg-salvation-tag-explanation-thread?comment=62"][space=5px; font-style:normal;]Sooooooooo essentially we need the full quote tag - italics being applied broadly to the contents. Hummmmmmmm let me run down Feyd. [/space][/quote]

    This will also let the quoted poster set the italics on and off inside his post.

    I do not have an exact time frame, but definitely go for sooner rather than later.

    Also, MafiaScribe can, and should, be fully restored at some point.
    (He shouldn't technically have counted, but was flagged for EU)

    Unfortunately, I have to resurrect each and every post by hand.
    So.... please be patient with me.

    As the person trying to untangle this mess, I assure you I understand your frustration.
    In the end, the owners had to comply with EU law.

    Regardless, this is not a Pauper/Peasant thread, and is not the place for such a discussion.
    Locked.

    After talking some more with the legal team, since you reclaimed your account quickly and before the move, I can restore some of your threads and it should be ok. There's no automated process for this, I have to do every post by hand, so we're only looking at restoring the major threads or important posts. We'll revisit the issue later for other things.

    A multiplayer decklist discussion got the status: "Forbidden
    You do not have access to perform that action."

    This is a URL i used. There were only 2 pages in it.

    EDIT: So i guess the creators account got removed? It was a Rasputin101

    Rasputin101 has come back, and I've been able to restore the thread.

    The primer for amulet Titan modern established. Izzetmage was the guy.

    One of the titan amulet threads was restored.
    "Azourius Titan/Emeria Control" and "Colorless Eldrazi/tron" are both missing atm, the users have not returned, etc.
    Waiting to see if these users return shortly.

    Quote from Jonny_Tempel »
    The spirits primer for modern has been deleted too. Ketoglutarate was the owner.

    ketoglutarato came back, and his Spirits primer has been restored.

    The Primer for Grixis Death's Shadow in the Modern subforum was deleted because my account was deleted as well..

    The Link is still in my sig tho.
    Your Grixis Death Shadow Primer has been resurrected!

    Quote from Ayiluss »
    The primer for Grixis Shadow was deleted. I'm not sure who wrote the primer though.

    As above, DaveJacinto is back, and so too is his primer.
    Because Dave rocks.


    Quote from Kalas17 »
    The Emeria Titan Primer for Modern has also bit the dust. No idea who was the owner.

    This amulet titan primer is back up.
    "Azourius Titan/Emeria Control" and "Colorless Eldrazi/tron" are both missing atm, the users have not returned, etc.
    I'm still awaiting some word and hope these users comes back before handing off primers to others.

    There was a great post about which order to read the books https://www.mtgsalvation.com/forums/magic-fundamentals/magic-storyline/336912-info-the-order-of-the-books, any chance we can bring it back?

    Unfortunately, this was specific to the user, and his own creation.
    We'll have to hope he comes back.

    The "Evaluate Everything" Project as part of Pauper Cube discussions seems to have disappeared, as well.

    This is the latest URL I have in my history: https://www.mtgsalvation.com/forums/the-game/the-cube-forum/pauper-peasant-discussion/193961-the-evaluate-everything-project?page=2#c38.

    Thanks.
    I've resurrected the thread itself, but the deleted user content will remain deleted unless that user comes back.

    Quote from pizzap »
    I (pizzap) was OP of Modern Hollow One (https://www.mtgsalvation.com/forums/the-game/modern/established-modern/aggro-tempo/788208-modern-hollow-one-discussion) and Shamanism (https://www.mtgsalvation.com/forums/the-game/modern/budget-modern/556726-shamanism). I already requested my account to be restored, so I assume the threads will be back once my account is back.
    I am not very active anymore in Modern, so if someone wants to adopt these threads, it is also fine by me.

    Both Primers are now back up. Smile

    The primer for the cheerios thread in established combo in modern was deleted too. Here is the link for the old thread:

    Thanks!
    Hoping that user comes back for now.


    Quote from Boba2989 »
    Do I have to just hope the user comes back?

    Yes Frown
    Sorry.

    Quote from marit »
    Does this mean the whole thread (including the primer) will never be able to be viewed again?

    If the user doesn't come back, we'll look into handing it off to someone else.
    If they start fresh, the old thread will remain dead.
    If it's possible to transfer the thread (this is a complicated manner), we'll restore the thread sans any deleted posts.

    Quote from Ecophagy »
    Feyd: would it be possible to restore any threads that might have been deleted from the Mafia subforum? I don't know if any have actually been removed, but we'd like to ensure we retain as much history as possible. If it's not easy for you to see if/which threads have been removed let me know and I'll try and work it out. Thanks!

    If the user has come back, yes.
    Have them message me requesting such.

    If the user has not come back, they will remain gone.
    There's literally nothing we can do. It's the law.

    It looks like none of the mafia threads from the past two years have disappeared.
    "ZeDorkSlipeur's Normal" is gone until the owner comes back. That's the most recent one I see.


    Sweat
    If I missed anyone, please let me know.
    Juggling a bit here, but I think I'm up to date.
    Just waiting & hoping on a couple of the primer writers to hopefully return.

    I've PM'd each of you individually.

    There was some back and forth, but for you returning users, I will be able to restore some threads and posts. There's no automated process for this, I have to do every post by hand, so we're only looking at restoring the major threads or important posts. We'll revisit the issue later for other things. If there are any specific threads that you want me to restore, please reply to the PM or post here.

    We've gotten official word from the legal team.

    For Primers and Decklists: We will not be able to restore the OP, even if the user wants to come back.
    This will have to be transferred to a new user with a new post.


    Again, this is governed by law, and not based upon any decision of ours or even our owners.

    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)

    Please read This Thread.

    Quote from Feyd_Ruin »»

    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.

    Smile
