I just found a dead account :(

It makes me so sad; I wonder what happened to this person ;_;

I dunno... does it make you feel sad, too? I get really sad about things like this, like, are they okay now? Are they depressed? ... Are they alive?

I come across dead accounts like that all the time & some of my earliest friends from sites like Roblox have dead accounts & I no longer know them or speak to them, which makes me sad.

It makes me sad, too, to think that, some day will be the last day that I talk to y'all, or to my SO, or to one of my friends, either because of death, happenstance, or what-have-you. Such is the inevitability of life. Better make all the good memories that you can...?

Eh, sorry if this is depressing! It's just that I get to thinking about a lot of things when I find dead accounts like that -- could I have helped them?

I've found a couple. You get used to it, though it is sad.

After doing some digging around, it would appear as though this person was bullied by someone on this website over the course of two-ish days? One of their friends, 'Dusk,' experienced the same problem & also decided to quit FT. However, Dusk returned in April of this year (though that is their last login date).

Is it possible that this person was targeted for being a close friend of Dusk?

I know Dusk, if the account is the one I think you're talking about.
I don't think anyone was targeted for knowing Dusk, he never wanted any problems.
Anyway I'm not sure if it's a good of an idea to bring back whatever problems might've happened in the past, especially if the people have already moved on from the site. Trying to guess why they left might unintentionally cause rumors or whatever.

*Shrug,* I don't think that Dusk is really left; they've been online since after the purportedly left.

And the other person? Their name is meaningless & their history makes little reference to their identity. No risk of dredging up old issues through them.

That being said, ye, I didn't make this post to bring up old problems! It's really just me being sad about a dead account & thinking about what that means for me. When will I just be a dead account? ;_;

Yeah it is kinda sad, but it also makes me curious on where everyone is with their lives. And it's strange to think that one day my account will also be inactive and people might look at it and wonder "who was this person?". :fox-:P:

Oh yeah.

What's even sadder is that most people wouldn't care. Like, the odds of someone looking at your profile and saying "This person hasn't posted in years." is slim -- they'd have to 1) find your profile after years, 2) figure out that you hadn't posted for years by clicking on your profile & looking at your last post's date.

Then the odds of someone actually going through all of your stuff to try and figure out who you were -- hopes, dreams, hobbies, thoughts, insights, needs, wants, feelings, etc -- is slim to none. Most people don't care; they have to be emotionally invested in you for some reason to even give a damn. And if the person doesn't know you, then their only emotional investment comes from the post of yours that they see.

So that'd better be a damn amazing post, one so passionately written that even the most braindead drunkard feels some sort of connection to you.

-snipp- May have pasted the wrong thing xP - Its a shame accounts die like this though, It'd be cool if some OGs came back as well as other dead accounts like this one.
