The best we could probably do is ask proboards (host site) to step in, and by that time, the potential damage is done.

    I did hastily register with an alt email, but to those not rushing to reserve their super cool and unique username without considering security first, there's nothing you can do to ease those concerns unless you relinquished administrative control to a more reputable group or organization.

    At least with the Supercell Forum Discord server, minley and fezzerz are admins but don't have access to any private info used to create our Discord account. They still have the ability to block/ban users from the server, but not Discord as a whole, without needing access to our sensitive information. I believe the same applies to individual subreddits.

    All that said, the forum setting has its merits to some people who hate the awesomeness(?) of Reddit or the modern heiroglyphics chat common in Discord.

    If it picks up, I'm ready to go, but I don't know if others can see past all this.
    I agree

    Goodbye forums, I know you tried your best, darian.

    A Lot of you have asked questions regarding security concerns, so here are some answers:

    1: what info Do i need to plug in and who can see it?

    you only need to provide an email and create a password. you only can view your password and you can choose your email viewing preferences in settings.

    2: How can i trust you/ other admins with our info?

    The hard truth is, you really cant. you have never seen my face, or heard my voice, so for all you know, i would be a 40 year old Creep who likes to gather and sell info.

    While I know who i am, And How Trustworthy/responsible I can be, you dont. and the only way of doing so would be to meet in person. but for..obvious mutual safety concerns, thats not an option. So you will have to take a little leap of trust here, and i fully understand your skepticism towards something like this.

    3: How do i know the moderators are responsibly chosen?

    I am trying to recruit moderators from this forum, as they know what they are doing, trustworthy and fair. worst case scenario, i have no mods from here and mods will be nominated and chosen unanimously by the forum users, just like the ones where here. they would also have a "trial" run to see how they fare, and whether they can handle such a responsibility.


    Please feel free to ask me more questions, should it ease your concerns.

    On point 2, I get it. I work and have worked in positions where I see and handle sensitive information on a regular basis and any trust violation would end my current or past careers, but only I know that and can confirm it. I wouldn’t even know what to do with an IP address or how to exploit it for personal gain nor would I. Stripes do not suit me, and neither does orange.

    On point 3, I really hope you can convince mods here to migrate over. If you can, I think that would lend to your forum’s credibility. I don’t know how easily you can convince them though. I did not know the mods here were chosen by the community. I thought supercell handpicked them. The appointment to mod here seems to come with perks Supercell can offer that you cannot reciprocate, but in the interest of keeping our community (which should be a reward in itself), I hope it works out and they do offer to help. If you can’t get the mods, there are surely a lot of “high-level” forumites who would be good for the job and would be good to have on-hand. For example, any game specialist. They are the players who are the pillars of this community after the mods.

    I would ask if a group of mods/GaSps/content creators were to band together, would you be willing to hand over the framework you have started so they can improve upon it?

    I'm not saying you are incapable of doing so or should have to hand over the keys but ask mainly for the reasons stated above. I don’t know any of the mods or other revered members of this forum in the real world, but I know I could trust them to be responsible stewards of what some may consider sensitive information and keep the community alive instead of scattering us to the four winds.

    If a group game specialists/mods/content creators wanted to finish what i started id be more than happy to let them.

    I definitely cant do this on my own so if there are more capable hands that people are willing to trust im all for it.

    I have been PMing some mods about migrating over but very few respond

    if you would like to help me in doing so in the way of PMing the best mods and then letting me know please do

    I like the discord because when no one is on, you can interact with the bots, and it’s pretty fun. It’s not a replacement for a forum.

    I don’t have any pull with the mods, and this isn’t my endeavor, but I would suggest maybe PMing the game specialists and asking them. You should be able to find a list, but rowman, 2222, and onyxds come to mind. I know there are more, but I can’t think of them at the moment.

    You’re welcome to come to the discord server to talk about it in real-time with others. Would be good to get multiple points of view instead of just mine.

    I’m referring to this one (https://forum.supercell.com/showthre...-Server-Public) not the subreddit one, though I’m in both.

    Had a look, and a few things I see need fixing typo wise (petty comments I know, but Iíll say anyway, as the more professional it looks, the more likely it is people will join).
    Need to use Caps at start of lines, after full stops/question marks etc...(or dont by choice, but be consistent).
    Some lines have full stops or other punctuation at the end, some donít... looks poor... either do or donít.

    Re site security, my biggest concern would be my email address and that the same email is possibly linked to my clash account.
    My suggestion to anyone interested in signing up would be to have a different email you use for this, (and any other clash related signup stuff), this is a email specifically for this purpose and not linked to any account and which has a different password also to any of your clash linked email accounts.
    This would also help, if the site got hacked as any details gained dont compromise your gaming accounts.

    I agree. I would also hide your email if you can figure out how.
