Back in 07 when I joined WI there was a member drive and at that time I allowed my older son to create an account for himself, he could log on and look around but I didn't want him posting because he was under 13. Let's face it some kids can be disrepectful, rude or mean and I didn't want anything he would say linked with my name; for example we always enjoy peeking in the house threads kids can be honest but his opinions weren't always the nicest and I didn't want him hurting anyone elses feelings so having his own account was perfect for us.

Now that a few years have past I don't think he would remember his password to log back in if he wanted to or for all I know he may catch Webkinz fever again and decide now to become an active member. On the other hand if at the time he picked a name he thought was cool he may not like the name now that he's older so he could decide on a different name to reflect what he likes now. Hope this helps a little to understand why some accounts seem inactive.

Please note that making a second account for whatever reason is against our site rules. If a member does not like their username, sorry... username changes are not allowed. If a member does not remember their password, there is a "Forgot your password" on login. Please use it.

I don't think you guys are understanding what I'm saying, I mean that sometimes people make multiple accounts and get away with it, Staff have a way of checking but sometimes it's just siblings on the same computer (different accounts), I find it annoying how I found out that some people are actually just going on multiple accounts. O.O

I'm not understanding what your saying then....you can just flag a post of that user's, and let them know the other multiply accounts they are using?

I know, And I understand that some people don't use their account for some time, When I first signed-up I didn't make my first post until a little after 1 year.
What I mean is, Many people quit and never come back, but they never tell a Mod/Admin, So maybe there could be like a "bot" that searches for people who've never been on in maybe.. 3-5 years?

No, cause what if someone decided t come back after a year? Yes, it is a long time but sometimes people leave for a long time and come back.
I think they should delete un-activated accounts that haven't been used in a year or even a few months though, if they don't already do that

As all others, I respectfully disagree. Besides the whole posts messing up and username issue, it seems quite honestly, to me, as being rude. Yes, there are members who have not posted in a long time. Yes, there are members who occasionally have breaks. I had one earlier this year. I would be incredibly dismayed if I would have to make a new account and work my way up back to Gifted/GG status. Would that even be allowed, to create another account? Who knows.
There is no gurantee that whoever made an account will never come back. Because of that possibility, we do not delete accounts.
If you lost internet access, for, say, a year, wouldn't you be dismayed if your account was deleted?
Or if you stopped playing one day, with a higher status, and came back a couple years later, wouldn't it be annoying to have to go through all that again?

One last thing- if a topic has been brought up recently and closed with an explanation from the staff, there isn't much of a point to bring it up again.
