You can change that in your settings - number of posts per page - anywhere between 5 pages and 40 pages (!!) depending on that.

A user can request that everything they ever wrote on EF be deleted if they so choose.
I don't believe that's true. This thread should answer that question.

In fact for some of us our identities are no secret at all because they advertise their business activities here. For example the gentleman with the cheese shop, or the lady with the B&B.
Plus an ex mod who had his ski rental apartments in his signature & mentioned them on numerous occasions.

Members with a good memory & GoBackMachine however does not forget

Right to be forgotten might be more applicable than GDPR but many "leavers" don't actually want to be forgotten. Because otherwise you just leave, no fanfare, just drop off and never visit again.
Several troublemakers self deleted 2 years ago, then returned as trouble makers & now threaten to self delete again. Nothing to do with being forgotten, just causing trouble.

What else should fora be for, than interesting debates...You can only save so many expats from their lowly 120k, brown sugar drought, dishwasher detergent chaos and puppy hotel search. And agony

We are open to positive ideas of improvement - bitcoins for rep points, or new subforums... EF Tinder (Finkum, I am winking at ya!), etc.
FairTindrum here About the forum I'm sure everyone complained already but it's the need to have something more than "Thanks" when you want to react to a comment. I dont want to thank them, I want sometime to react to a good word play, joke, idea without making a comment ) I know it sounds like FB sort of a thing but it isnt.. even in the year 2005-2006 we had forums that had those buttons with a smiley or to give a note ,etc ... so if it is technically possible I hope it'll be done one day

Yess yess I can imagine that velvety part of this forum the Adult section )) Subforum - Send nudes I can imagine the trouble coming out of it "hello , he didnt even give me an orgasm!" "She wouldnt even leave a tiny light on!" me:"ok ok now, kiss again, no no not like that , use some tongue"

it applies to data subjects that are EU citizens therefore could be considered applicable here..
This has been argued before on the basis of poorly written legal commentary that wasn't designed to cover EU citizens living outwith the EU..

But basically clearly not. An EU court doesn't have legal jurisdiction over a foreign company operating in a foreign land.

Just looking at the posts you have liked or groaned in this thread should give you the answer. You love to stir the pot.

Asking how to self delete when you clearly knew the answer is a perfect example

From the English Forum rules and regulations;

Swedish laws are very strong on protecting personal information which is why the recent allegation that the mods were sharing personal information in the mod zone is so serious.

Can you see any posts by Ace1 or 22yards now? Under the title ‘guest’ obviously.
Nope because they have all been deleted along with all the PMs they’d sent.

A user can request that everything they ever wrote on EF be deleted if they so choose.
Strangely they still show up in the thread indices, due to antiquated software I suppose.

That’s really inappropriate and overly aggressive. Why should posts that I thank be examined in public when posts thanked by other people, including mods are not. Tit for tat? And this is really not for discussion in the open forum. And you think there’s more openness and friendliness now? Illusion.

Aren’t personal attacks forbidden?

This only came up as you asked in public if you thought you were a trouble maker!
I still have not directly answered the question so don't see how it could be a personal attack.

How about if mods don't discuss personal cases at all (apart from with other mods)?
