Handle id #9897 : dmd

The full handle was Diamond Design but he changed to dmd in 2014. Perfectly OK, but it's not OK to rename the entry. Old handle entry created, I'm trying to restore older productions under the old handle now.
Edit: I've set the separation line at 30 November 2013, when he joined ATL, of course first hand information would be better.

Good work Ian. Thanx.

Another thing related to this, which I always run into, is the problem that people think they "own" their scener entry. Like if csdb was Facebook or something. I am glad people who know the database principles jumped into this.

Most EU countries have data protection laws that give people the right to see their personal information, change (correct) the information and delete the information that have been collected by data collectors like facebook and csdb.

You must be referring to the archiving principles of CSDB and not database principles ;-)

a handle is not personal information - he can always get his personal data removed.

I consider my handle very personal. It's the name I used to publish code/gfx I was proud of. And it's a name/handle I still use.

So a handle is personal information, even more so than an address, addresses change, handles don't.

well, the reason those handles exist are that people dont have to use their real names :) i very much doubt they would count as "personal data" protected by those laws. (it'd be kinda hard to identify anyone just by knowing his handle...). there is very little potential for abuse with such handles too - unlike with real personal data like name, address, phone etc

What Mr Ammo said. PII counts for being able to single out a person in a crowd. What's the GDPR compliance status of CSDb?

csdb data is encrypted with double xor #$ff, don't worry.
