Default Unanswered: If a person hasn't been on for 6 months, do they really need an account?

There are almost 100,000 unactive members here. Do we really need to keep the account of someone who joined last year and never posted? I don't think it's worth keeping. Couldn't mods delete those accounts? Then new members could enjoy names with no numbers or signs. Anyone else agree?






Please post. :]]]

I'm sure that there is some sort of rules and protacal that even the mods and admins have to follow about deleting accounts. :-) I would guess that once it is "allowed" to remove an inactive account, its being done. But yes, I would agree with you that inactive accounts should be removed when a timeline has been met. Just be certain that the inactive accounts in question are truly "inactive", and not just those who became members, and are READING all the posts, and not just posting themselves. I know I was a member for a while before I actually started posting myself. :-)

but i agree

Some members joined and are here just to read. Maybe they are too young to post (per their parents). Maybe they joined and life happened and they have not been able to get back on WI. That's why for contests and whatnot, they have that stipulation for 'active' members.

I know that I have joined sites and have gotten busy and have not been able to get on them like I would like, but I still want to be there. I would be highly offended if my account was deleted just because I had not posted.

I would think a notice to an inactive account would be in order. Give the account holder the option to continue or be deleted. I don't know if there is anything in the WI guidelines about inactive accounts, but it's a good idea.

I'm sorry I dont think this is a good idea because, I have WI friends that one moved to alaska or something and the other just took a break from WI so I dont think this is a good idea.

i dont think thats a good idea, sorry
if something happens to osmeone...like say they had tons of webkinz but had just found this site and were hoping to post a lot..then some natural disaster happens, like a hurricane if you live where i do, and you lose power or something happens to your house and you have to move and dont have internet for a longggg time. i think that person would feel pretty rotten if they came back and found their account was deleted.

No, I am sorry, that means my daughter who has no access to a computer would come back to find her account de-activated and she worked HARD to become a Gift Guru.

I agree with Dixiecup... Sometimes life interfers. Someone might have computer problems, or might get sick and they'd have no way to respond to any notice. I don't think it hurts new members to get creative with their names, but it would sure hurt a lot of people who want to be members but just can't be active at the moment.

Were they gone for 6 months without internet? Alaska has internet, you know.
