    EU pushes forward on law against hate speech, illegal content. Hosting companies required to take websites offline

    I am not from Europe so I don't understand exactly how things work there. That being said, what gives the EU right to determine laws in a country? What country in their right mind would allow that to happen?

    XF 2.0 Possible to merge two databases

    It is possible to merge two databases. For example, if I acquired multiple websites and wanted to merge them into the same database.

    EU pushes forward on law against hate speech, illegal content. Hosting companies required to take websites offline

    American companies implement European directives when it makes sense. In other cases such as GPDR they only enforce it for users in that country. GPDR is supposed to protect Europeans even if they are in the United States, though a vast majority of American websites do not give a cookie notice...

    XF 2.0 Does XF2 track an users ban history?

    Does XF store the ban history of users? Looking in xf_user_ban it appears to only list users that are currently banned. I also checked the moderator log table and did not see an action of "ban"

    XF 1.5 vB 2.8.11 to Xenforo 1.5.22: Avatars and album images fail to import

    It sounds like you are well on your way. Moving from vB 2 to XF2 is a pretty big jump. Congratulations on the move. Curious what is the oldest VB install to job to XF.

    Warning Acknowledgement [Paid]

    Not sure if my idea is fringe, but restricting having the option to prevent mods from giving additional warnings until the user acknowledges their current warning would be good. I have an issue where my mods will hit someone with multiple warnings before the user has time to understand they have...

    XF 2.1 Reactions 👍😍🤣😲🙁😡

    Would love to see XF take a more agile approach. It doesn't look like they are far, though 2.1 could have been 2.1 - 2.8 if each feature was released in its own version.

    Time Zones for guests

    I am not sure how a guest would be able to set their timezone. Having Xenforo get their timezone from their IP would be interesting.

    XF 2.1 Reactions 👍😍🤣😲🙁😡

    What I think you are saying is there is no need to classify the reaction if it has a point value. eg. Positive is any value > 0 Neutral is a value of 0 Negative is any value < 0

    Uploader to have field require user rights confirmation

    It does not help your website. If a user uploads copyrighted material you are still on the hook for it. All it gets you is some ammo when taking action against the user. Also in all likelihood, you get more copy and pasted post then you do other items. I have received about a dozen takedown...

    EU pushes forward on law against hate speech, illegal content. Hosting companies required to take websites offline

    The US Supreme Court has already ruled that hate speech is free speech. This new law by the EU would not affect servers hosted in the United States. I do find it ironic considering the EU cares about as much as China about American IP. In the end, the law will be great for Americans because the...

    XF 2.1 Reactions 👍😍🤣😲🙁😡

    The problem is when users disagree they will use the one with the most points. If a user sees P hate speech or fake news (MAGA) then they should probably report the post and have it deleted.
