so theres this user called gdpr0000001 and if you go to his profile, there are many weird things.

link: https://scratch.mit.edu/users/gdpr0000001/

First, the location is not given, but you can probably get that from some script or older scratch version.
It joined 20 years ago, before scratch even existed and is also a new scratcher, before the new scratcher status existed.
You cannot comment on his profile, and the comments load forever.
You cannot normally follow him, but there are 140 followers, who probably used some script.
The follow scroll extends way further than its supposed to.
His user id is 15680061, which is not the first account made.
You cant report him either (credit to Boomer001).

Not sure how this was done, but it was probably some hacker who was able to hack the scripts i guess.

I know im not the first person to find about this but still rather intresting.

This is interesting! I don't know how someone could glitch it like that without the use of scripting, but I think I know a way we can figure out just about when the account was made. I think if you searched for a user one digit below the user ID and searched for a user one digit above the user ID, and look at when those accounts were made, we could figure out a rough time where the account was made, I think I'll try it out right now.

Signed. Can't think of a good signature.

Perhaps someone requested their account to be forgotten by means of the GDPR, or the ST was testing Scratch's ability to comply with the GDPR

Btw you don't need to use the API to get the join date; just hover over the “Joined xyz ago” text on their profile

A user asked if this account is a test account of the Scratch Team to the ST member Za-Chary and here's his response:

Za-Chary wrote:

I believe so, yes.

Plus, the “Location not given” is still possible if you just skip the location part when making your account (Or you can just set it to Antartica and people know nobody lives there).

You might see that this account was apparently created 20 years ago. Why? Let's see:
This account exists because of the new European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which allows most European citizens to request website owners to delete all their data about them.
In order to comply with this regulation, Scratch deletes all information about accounts where their owners requested their “right to be forgotten”, and changes their username to “gdprxxxxxxx”. In some cases, these accounts have profile pages, so they are not considered “deleted”. That's why we can see their profile. Something broke because this is a weird type of account, which makes the follow button not work. However, it's just a website issue! The server is OK with us following this account. So this is why this works. Pretty cool, huh?

Not sure which is correct, but they both could be possible answers.

gdpr0000000 is a normal scratch account, nothing glitched.

It's a special character glitch I think. Or it was deleted and updated at the same time. That means it would still have an id and a searchable result, but its details and login have been removed. That means it can't be logged in.

You can't report him though. Someone should probably explain that.

Out of curiousity, does this glitch extend to hampering an ST's ability to delete that account?

Hi, I'm ResExsention, that New Scratcher who refuses to promote themself! I really do look forward to getting to know you!

If you see "[DATA EXPUNGED]", you'll know it was deleted by me. It's a lot easier. Also, I'm a Slytherin if you need to know.
