Account Purge?
« on: February 21, 2016, 12:03:29 pm »
I was going through the memberlist and noticed many members who joined many years ago and never posted a single thing and weren't active in years

Would an account purge be necessary?

FT doesn't delete accounts as a matter of policy. There's a few reasons for this: we try to achieve as much as possible which is why we're hesitant to delete anything, and it would be a time consuming process as some people with a post count of 0 have still made posts. But the main reason we don't delete accounts is we don't want anyone to feel unwelcome here ever. There's always the chance that someone may return at some point and we don't want them to feel unwelcomed because their old account was deleted. They're not really causing any harm either as they don't cause any server strain and since we're a small site there's plenty of usernames to choose from. Hope that helps ^^

As a little extra bit, it's also quite common that some members are a bit nervous at first when they join, but after a while they will start posting, so it's definitely worth it to keep those accounts  :fox-:):

Generally no. Deleting accounts only happens on very rare occasions- usually spam bots. Duplicate accounts are usually just perma-banned, especially if any posts were made on them

Yep. I don't remember your case specifically, but I'm assuming it was permabanned.
What we will do is edit/delete any sorts of information the account owner doesn't want around anymore.

So if a member with a very high post count that has been permabanned, wanted for you to delete their account would you?

No.
The reason being because of their post count?
