Is there technically anything to be done in Q2A to meet GDPR requirements?

What would technically imply for Q2A to be "GDPR ready"?

I've read somewhere that users need to have the option to have their profile pages private

Good question. I don't know exactly what is required by GDPR. Q2A allows deleting of accounts by Administrators, so users can ask to have their account deleted. However, users cannot delete their own accounts, not sure if that is a requirement.

Very little information is kept in the profiles anyway. Users can easily delete everything there if they need to.

By using this after selecting the qa_user
DELETE FROM `qa_users` WHERE email = 'user@email.com';
Or
DELETE FROM `qa_users` WHERE handle = 'username';

@ProThoughts Thanks for reminding :)
@arasahmed That is a bad way because it will still keep user points and user posts alive - provided the deletion is allowed by the Database.
