Export feature? (General)

It would seem to be a good feature for each user to be able to export his data.

Yes, that's correct. It's not only a good idea but it's also a requirement of the GDPR (article 20). So it's a requirement for us because many forums are based in the EU. Question is, which scale of the users data to offer. A user interacts with other users but she/he has the right to access only her/his own personal data. Accessing a machine readable collection of ones own account data is an obvious task. But is there more?

Are the entries of a user itself her/his personal data? How to identify entries of a not registered user/visitor? How meaningful are entries of a user deprived from their context of entries from different users/visitors? Should these entries be part of a dataset of a users personal data?

Tschö, Auge
