Forum Updates: 2018-05-01
Sorry this announcement is a bit late -- we've been dealing with the "awaiting moderation" crisis.
Here's the next round of updates we've made to the RPLS Today website!
RPLS Today is now compliant with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) as approved by the EU Parliament on April 14, 2016 with an official enforcement date starting on May 25, 2018. Organizations found to be non-compliant can face heavy fines. Since we do have many members from that region of the world, it made sense to bring RPLS Today into compliance. For more information about the GDPR, visit the GDPR Portal.

And various bug fixes
Thanks guys! I forgot to mention that I fixed the weird double-avatar issue. Your avatar should now appear consistent throughout the website. If you've never chosen an avatar, you'll have the default, which is the cartoon of a surveyor looking through a total station. 🙂
