Account Removal???

I have a two accounts here. If I don't use one for some time will it get purged from the system automatically? How long does this take? I've got a PM into Jason to remove the account in question. The poor boy is probably up to his eyeballs in things.

Reason, is now that we can change the display name, I want to use the newer account name on my older account (this one). I know...I'm Crazy [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

Re: Account Removal???

I'm not worthy of Moderator status but I'll still post a reply to you if it'll help with your question [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Nope won't get purged off the list. There's people that joined almost 4 years ago and never posted and probably didn't even come back to lurk and their names are still listed.

It would make sense to purge the server of members that haven't logged in for at least the last 12 months.

Might even help the site load a little faster [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Take care,

Agreed. I'm left wondering why in the world someone would need 2 accounts when you can make your display name anything you want now. In fact most forums won't allow more than one account. Oh well. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ooo.gif[/img]

Re: Account Removal???

Bump again...

Not sure if only Jason can remove accounts or the Moderators can. I'm sure he's pretty busy as well. I agree, it should speed systems up if they purges any un-used accounts. They could start with the spare one I have.

I just want my display on this account to be "Frostyford". [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shrug.gif[/img] I even got custom plates on the truck to "tee" my wife off. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/vulnerable.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/vulnerable.gif[/img]

Re: Account Removal???

Moderators can ban a user, but we can't literally delete the account from the database. When banned, the account is still there, because we can later un-ban that account.

Each member's account is one record in a database. Only Jason has the keys to the database to literally delete records. As long as those old unused records don't cause any problems, he doesn't have much incentive to spend time to delete unused accounts.

Besides, if he starts deleting records, then we couldn't brag about having more than 29,635 members. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/warmsmile.gif[/img]

My Sierra Blanca (Spanish for White Mountain) in the sig pic was a great pickup for 11.5 years. I sold it several years ago. I drove a hand-me-down 2003 F-150 SuperCrew 4.6L 2V for a while, but it was unacceptable for towing more than a rowboat. Replacement is a 2012 F-150 EcoBoost SuperCrew Lariat that tows my 5,000-pound TT like a dream. Replaced the 2012 with a 2019 F-150 3.5L EcoBoost with max tow.

Re: Account Removal???

Thanks Smokey for the reply. Unfortunately, I stuck until Jason gets to my request (PM) I guess.

You got a point there about that many members. I wonder how many are really "not active" anyway?
