Please explain. :) I wasn't aware there were more privilege levels than guest/registered user/moderator/admin.

All deleted info is saved for the moderator to restore in case of sceners going berzerk. Either they want to change history, or they want to destroy CSDb etc etc. It has happened multiple times, you know. "Trusted users" are our magic pixies (devoted preservation people). They have some moderating tools to be able to help out with the database easier.

Well, I thought of leaving my old adress in the DB for future reference and because it's what will appear on most stuff I released back then.

I am considering tho of removing my full real name and only leaving my initials.

what do you think?

About your real name: it used to be a rule that no real names should be added unless the scener in question has approved; however, that was before all personal data like name, adress and contact details were visible to logged-in users _only_ - so nowadays they are also not found by search engines etc, not so much to worry about.

that rule still exists - and those who break it (all the time) should feel spanked.

I think most sceners are low maintenance so you're still good by giving initials only.

thx for all your replies.

i chose to leave old adress, it's the one the scene knew... and remove my surname, leaving only my name.

i also updated the profile description with the nick/handle i use nowadays in the gaming community

;)
