Casualty list?

So TFF has been through a lot over the last... few years? I can't track time anymore. But we've lost the Admin, moved a few different times (or tried to branch off) and looks like we're settling in here for now. I'm curious how many people we ended up losing during the whole... thing.

Mainly because zeebee1 is apparently gone and has been for awhile. The throne of the King of Posts is empty! Who will claim the gift of gab and become the new number one poster on TFF?

zebee1 stayed with old!TFF, I believe, and presumably died with the rest of it when tapatalk nuked all the invisionfree forums.

I can't believe Zeebee died in Infinity War

Tapatalk nuked all the invisionfre forums? When was this? The only other forum I visited was the Fanfiction Federation, and only for Chilord's stuff. I know they switched, I did't know all the old invisionfree forums had.

It wasn't a choice, tapatalk bought out invisionfree/zetaboards specifically so they could turn every IF/ZB forum into their ad/tracking/privacy nightmare.

The old forum is still there, that being said it is mostly dead, it has only received 3 post this year and the year before was mostly PCHeintz72's Update List (by the way has anyone asked him why he doesn't do those anymore?).

This is why we VPN, NoScript, Ublock Origin, HTTPS Everywhere, Universal Bypass, and Privacy Badger.

Nothing runs in my browser unless I okay it.

That's cute and all, but they're the hosting provider. They can stick all that shit right in with everything else that's required to make the site run, and they don't need you to log in to data mine all the posts.

All of that stuff really only protects you if the website is on your side. Don't get caught out because you think you're secure.

Then the site just won't load or will only partially load. Like I said, I have to manually okay scripts, cookies, whatever. I get a list of stuff to let through or block on most pages.

It is kind of inconvenient sometimes, but generally speaking I just don't bother and find somewhere else to be if a page won't load. On very rare occasions I'll decide to let something through temporarily to access something specific.

Also, the VPN is particularly good at circumventing that kind of stuff. What do I care if it's getting analytics for an IP address that thousands of people use?

I also have manually set up my browser to block all tracking.

My me-irl e-mail is never used to register at any websites and only IRL friends and family know it. The one I use for places like this has no personal information tied to it, and I use a completely different e-mail for personal and business stuff.

Granted, most people don't do all this stuff, but I'm pretty confident that the average website data mining software isn't much of an issue for me.

If a site is particularly aggressive about it, I Tor.
