  1. Apologies for the broken profile images. I moved all images, css, javascript to Amazon s3 storage and I'm also setting up CDN (Content Delivery Network), to improve site performance / speed etc.


    Most files have transferred but an issue with profile pictures has occurred, I have a couple of system errors within Invision that I have raised a ticket about and I'm confident they are related to the pictures not transferring but it may not be. This is being investigated and a solution expected soon.

  2. Just a complete update to be honest and making data retention user requested more stringent. We'll most likely have to send an email out before the 25th May asking users if they still wish for us to contact them. If not, they'll no longer receive communication from us but that is really only for European members (impossible to distinguish - well not "impossible" just very labour intensive and I haven't got the time).

  3. Look at it which way you like to be honest, I'm personally finding it a drag on my resources at work at the moment to make sure we are compliant. The data protection rules have been needing an update for some time and long overdue. 


    Anyone that holds information about you (in Europe anyway legally) and morally in the rest of the world should be held accountable for any of that data. What it does with that data and how it protects that data (however minimal) from peering eyes. So we are going full https on this site, introduced two step authentication to make your data more secure. Emails and password can be sold on the dark web and it can have a knock on effect elsewhere, that could have repurcussions financially. 


    If the breach was here for example, and then sold on. It would be us that were responsible for the data breach and if haven't taken the appropriate steps to make the data we hold more secure, we would be held accountable personally.


    We ain't a business but my name is on the domain and breaches of this new act, will be directed towards me and the other admins and to be honest - we need to take action. Additionally, the terms etc. have been updated and as we are hosted in the US, we are primarily a US website we are covered by US law but we also service throughout the world so need to have some form of "protection" both for us an our members and we need to adhere to the relevant laws.

  4. We are making some changes to the site and generally speaking it is to do with security and changes in data collection in Europe with the new GDPR legislation coming into force. 


    The first stage of our changes, is that have now introduced two factor authentication. What does it mean?



    Two Factor Authentication allows members of our community to secure their accounts using an additional layer of security in addition to their normal username and password. Different handlers provide different ways users can protect their account. Users will not be presented with any two factor options unless at least one of these handlers is enabled

    What handlers will be using?


    Google Authenticator & Additional security questions.


    When will you be promted? When you access the site.


    What will require two factor authentication?


    • Managing Authorized Devices
    • Logging into the front-end from a new device
    • Changing password 
    • The user will also need to re-enter their current password.
    • Logging into the front-end from a known device 
    • This does not apply if the user is logged in automatically because they have used the Remember Me checkbox.
    • Logging into AdminCP
    • Updating two-factor authentication setup 
    • Changing email address 


    You will have 3 attempts for authentication success, after which you will be sent a link via email (to the registered email address) to reset two factor authentiication.


    If for some reason you cannot reset (such as losing your phone) then the following scenario will apply.


    • Send an email with a link to reset two factor authentication set up
    • Contact administrator to manually reset 


    We urge you to also setup security questions.




    We have also introduced a new option that is displayed to guests/members regarding our privacy policy, code of conduct, terms of service. We will be asking all members to accept these changes.




    The biggest change to the terms, is that you have the right to request you account to be deleted. The content that is posted belongs to callofdutyzombies.com and remains the property of callofdutyzombies.com - if the account is entirely deleted, it can also delete content which can and will disrupt the flow of a topic / conversation. That is why user deletion will be implemented going forward but it will not include content deletion.


    We will do our best to remove any personally identifiable information but we cannot search every post/topic you have made for this information and if it is in a post or topic, then you really shouldn't have gave out personally identifiable information unless you intended to do so.


    If you have any difficulties intially with any of the above, please contact us

    Wow, just like Spork I got a notification through my email that I was tagged in a post and, well here I am again aha. I've missed this place and the theories, the days of old. But I think more than that I've missed the people, just like you. I planned on hanging around here through BO3 but my squad kind of did our own thing with solving the EE's and doing them blind, so I just sort of fell out of touch. Just was taking some time to reminisce on the old posts I made here, and wow, the nostalgia hit hard.


    Miss you guys :love48:

    Then get yer ass back here @Naitrax

  6. You don't need to have a paypal account to make a donation, you can use your debit card details to do this without registering or signing into a PayPal account. To make a merchant account with a card provider such as WorldPay is to expensive and not worth our while.

  7. I'm with that, however, I'm also thinking that I can automate it to the highest contributor. That doesn't always work and I appreciate that but with the voting system is just gets a bit too much for manual intervention. I may enable automated voting, highest votes gets the award but that would probably still need some manual input.


    My Views are similar to Lenne but also think just automate it, it's simpler and takes the hassle away.

  8. What source of payment are you looking at? Our server supplier only accepts card payments or PayPal, which is the same with most places hence keeping everything with PayPal. I can certainly look at others, we the donation system does support this from other gateways such as Skrill, Payza, Payment Wall.
