Due to snooping people, someone's stuff might have disappeared. It should be possible to restore it.
Hmm? Snooping people? What happened exactly?
i was about to make a thread on likes being disabled before you took the forum down, is this related to that?
Is "accidentally the user" a reference to a specific user somehow or does it mean something else? :? I am confuzzled
Someone's account was compromised and unfriendly parties may be looking through his shit.
They weren't disabled, but everything was broken. And I'm gonna edit a couple of posts because the point of being ambiguous was to be ambiguous because of snooping.
This is all in potentia at the moment.
It is important that people be able to protect and manage their own privacy. When it comes to light that information may be compromised and the person whose privacy is potentially being violated can't be around to manage the situation themself, temporary measures can be taken to protect their privacy on their behalf until they are able to come back and make those decisions themself.
oh fuck I hope he's okay.
Wow, this sounds unfortunate, albeit, I thought everything on Kintsugi was already public? Anyway, I hope that [people?] are okay after [whatever happened?]?
Edit: Oh right I see
It's not expected to be super-secret, but if I have reason to suspect specific targeted snooping in a circumstance that I think might endanger somebody, I will occasionally Suddenly Do Things.
improved title for clarity reasons
Just to check, this isn't something that I should worry about happening to me, right?
No. This is not a forum vulnerability.
[vauge hand gesturing]
i hope anyone affected is okay? (and by not a forum vulnerability, that means no reason for personal anxiety?)
): i hope he's okay
There is no reason for anxiety. This is specific to this particular user.
Anyone affected is okay, we'll handle any fallout.
So I got curious and decided to try running the "restore" from a previous "uh-oh creeper showed up" event, and the answer is, THAT TAKES A REALLY LONG TIME. But now we know.
just to clarify, if you were the specific user affected by the thing, you would know about it, right?
it's not you, i saw the thread before the edit
Kintsugi is based on the premise that nothing anyone can do or say makes it okay to treat them like trash. By logging in, you affirm that you understand this to be the foundational premise of the community. More on our community philosophy here.
