When I first started, I thought to delete inactive accounts & did delete a few of them. However, since I’m active in Post Exchanges, I don’t think it’s feasible to delete accounts anymore. Plus I read another take on it. If somebody took the time to register, maybe they should have the option to come back at any time. Who am I to tell them how often they have to log on.
I wouldn't ban just because they were inactive; that's selfish IMO. They didn't do anything bad, they just didn't post.
I have it where a member can delete their own account. I'm in others & it was a pain having to 'ask' to have my account deleted. Same with editing our own posts.
Do you delete inactive accounts? What do you consider to be inactivity?

I try my best not to take negative actions. Not active is a choice, not a crime.

Me too! Many members were complaining on Support. It looks like they are rolling out V6 very soon so seems they have more bugs they are having to fix.

v6 would be fun.
I'm not looking forward to it lol They are changing almost everything so themes, plug-ins, would be obsolete.

They said in a few months. Then we have 18 months to move over. They have a lot of teasers but since they are still fixing bugs, I stopped a year ago looking.

The new ownership might actually launch it.
