Andysetra's thread about "away" members made me think of this. How long can you be away without your account disappearing from ADISC's database, prompting you to re-register an account? Wasn't it like 90 days or so of no logons on TBDL? I know I was away about four months or so and could no longer logon. Had to re-register and start all over as a noob. I was wondering if that changed the way ADISC is now set up, so that you drop to lurker perpetually until you return. Or, after a set amount of time has passed with your account in lurker status will it still be purged requiring a re-registration? Not that I'm planning on doing a disappearing act again anytime soon. ;) Just wanted to understand what the time limits of inactivity are now before your account completely dies, if there are time limits in effect now.

I was away from TBDL for over a year and I still was able to use my same account. o_O

Granted I think I logged in twice during that time (just to scope this place out ;)), but yeah... I remember when I came back, Peachy just re-activated my old account.

A newbie with an account number lower than most of the regulars! :D

Yes, I hadn't logged on at all from Sept. 2006 to Feb. 2007 and my account was dead as a doornail. I could post as a guest, but that was about it. After I registered again, I made a request to Moo to reactivate my original account. After furnishing proof I was the same user as before, he reset my join date back to the original Sept. 2005 and restored my rep score. Post count had to start over again, however.

I didn't think this was even in effect, never heard of this before.

By the way, congrats on breaking Thread 100! You're only the third (Betagame, me) to do so! A piece of ADISC history has been made!

Accounts left inactive are never disabled. They may be hidden, after a week or two of no activity, but they can be used again, later, without you having to request reactivation for them.
