You know, Mouse...I have a couple of real life friends who never post on here, BUT they are members, nonetheless. They have activated the accounts and they are on here a LOT, they just kinda 'lurk' on here and gather information.
I have also seen members who have been gone for over a year suddenly show up again. Things change in people's lives. If we delete 'inactive accounts' then my daughter, who is a gift guru, would have to start all over.
This is a great idea. I think that all accounts which are lil' kinz with 0 posts should automatically, after a year or so, just be deleted, or put in some kind of 'bin' in which they can then contact the mods to get their account if they really need it later.
Great idea! Its slowing down the forum with all these inactive people. I remember when i tried joining the username i wanted was taken. then i searched the person and found they were inactive since a couple years ago. It would totally help new members by deleting people who have joined and never posted.
Well I wonder what message that would give people though that after they sign up and for whatever reason they don't use their account get kicked off. They might come and try to use it only to find they were dumped. That might not be the type of action that WI would stand for as its a friendly place. Besides having people registered and not using their accounts isn't affecting the site or our ability to do things here.
Message boards can't make people be active members. Some people are just not talkers. Maybe they joined once for one particular reason and had to let it go for a while. Perhaps they might be sick with a serious illness and won't be back for a year or longer. Since we don't know why they don't use their account..it doesn't seem that deleting the account is completely fair.
As far as names go for account holders, there are thousands of possibilities in spite of all the non active users.
i think that's a good idea. They should have a 2 year limit. If they never log in once in that time, it will be deleted. However if they continue to log in every few weeks, but don't post, then they could stay. i think they shoul;d get a warning though, so that they know they have to post.
I'm not sure about this because say there was a new member they only posted once then the next day they left for a 2 month vacation with no computer or anything else. They would be crushed if their account was deleted and they can't use the same username because someone already took it. I know they could make a new account but they would be known as a different person. I hope this is readable Lol well good idea anyways!
I totally agree. I think it's pointless to have all these members that haven't logged on in over a year. XD Maybe there could be some way, that they could keep their account from getting deleted if they didn't log in in a while. Like maybe they got grounded or had to move or something. There should be like an email warning, too.
I agree. But like Shadow said, there should be an e-mail warning, like 30 days before your account gets deleted? (Kind of like in WW! ) And if you haven't logged on for over a year, your account gets deleted. I really like this idea.
