I have a little bit of hesitation doing much on EA Hub because I lost all my data (including donation history) from my last profile. It was deleted without warning during the switch—or at least I missed the heads up. That aside, the updates sound exciting.
Hi, Aaron! Thanks for raising your concern! Your profile is still here https://eahub.org/profile/aaron-hamlin/, but it hasn’t been activated yet (it will become publicly accessible only after you’ve reset your password). About donation data, we decided to no longer keep that on the Hub, but we would be happy to try to restore your data and send it to you if that’s what you’d like.
Sending my old data would be awesome. Thanks! It took awhile to track everything down. myfullname@gmail.
Choosing how much and what of previous data to keep and use was a challenging decision which the team took very seriously. GDPR changed things quite a lot, and we have to factor in our responsibility to keep data private and secure. If people don’t come back and reclaim old accounts, some on the team feel leery of holding onto data indefinitely because that might not be the most responsible thing to do. Additionally, we made functional and structural improvements to the site when we rebuilt that means it does not perfectly follow on from what was before, and we needed to prioritise.
Any new updates on sending me the old information? I pester others on giving publicly and want to be sure that I model well personally. I’m thinking of adding a section to my personal website about my current, past, and planned giving for accountability.
Hi Aaron, I’ve just sent the data again. I used the email address associated with your eahub.org account. Please, write us at email@example.com in case you did not receive it by now.
