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.

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?

some ppl seriously need spanking. publish tons of stuff publicly that contains this "personal information" and then complain that public information is being publicly collected and documented? good luck :)

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

i know all that. i still think you need spanking for even thinking about it regarding csdb :) (and on various other big sites - including wikipedia itself - "handles" are dealt with like i said, and quite rightly so)
