Yay Esther! :) I read a bit awhile back that you weren't going to be around much. Glad to see you haven't gone permanently.

What happened to them?

For moderator: Feel free to move this thread to a right place.

I wanted to ask this, but I guess that I need to create this question or I will be haunted with this ;D

Well, before I register. I happen to see users who always active in this forum, I saw their comments from reading people stories. But, when I see them now, their name still there but listed as a Guest. I believe there are so many people who become Guest too.

I will provide with screenshots to make it clear.





I want to ask, what happened to them?
It's related to rules related? Did they chose to deactivated their account?
Will my account be like that if I'm not active in this forum for awhile?

Thank you!

First, I merged this with a larger thread we have on the same topic.

As the person once behind TheTripWasInfraGreen, I can say that deleting my account was a rash decision made for extremely frivolous reasons that I quickly regretted. I don't know the full situations behind the other two. Anyways, account deletion is usually something that is done by the user for whatever reasons they have, as opposed to something a moderator does.

Wow, I don't know that it was you. Well, glad to see you back with a new account. I happen to see your comments a lot at Samura's Dojo and other stories. Oh, thank you for explanation Trip and place this on the right track. At least that I'm glad to know that not because being inactive for awhile ;D

Well, you inspired me to put the line back in my signature explaining the connection, so thanks! Deleting accounts for inactivity would be rather cruel; what if someone wanted to return?

Carl does occasionally delete inactive accounts, but as far as I'm aware they're usually members with few posts or who almost never log in.

As for SimBlip, to my knowledge she had broken several challenge tournament rules so the team and her decided to part ways.

Of course, the circumstances for a member's account being deleted is their business -- whatever their reasons, they are exactly that, their reasons. :)

Umm, you're welcome? I don't do anything anyway, Trip ;D

Actually that was my experience as a silent reader this time. Not only that I enjoy their stories that they provides but also I love seeing how people respond to their stories. And you never know that there is someone who cares out there without your awareness :)

So, that’s why the reason I actually join this forum I want to see more of their stories and I only can do my part to encourage them who fairly new and want to create their own story, even what I did just a little part, but for an author getting one comment actually something else, it’s like a proof that someone really reading instead just being silent reader alone. I know that people has no time on commenting because each of us busy with our personal life, so we can only take a look for awhile just like that.

I have seen stories that no one ever commenting and it looks so sad, making stories not easy either. But, that can’t be helped because you know that people have different taste for the story and people tend to looking for Author who already popular and have wonderful story and writing. Even a small thing can means a lot for someone else.

I actually makes story too to give encouragement for them, indirectly.  Whatever happens, even no one ever commenting on my story as long I enjoy making them, why should I stop? I will post each chapter until I completed my story. To be honest, I am not a writer ::)
But, I blessed there are so many kind people who left comment this far. I ever said this in How to fail your Immortal Dynasty and I should give them a proof too, because we know that talk is cheap, right ;) ?

Sorry for being out of topic, but I need to say this :P

Yep! Actually I just want to ask about being inactive will lead into deletion. Because there will be a time for me can't active in this forum for awhile, so that kinda worried me and the other thing that I want to know also about those people. I happen to see their stories/comments somewhere and just curious what happened to them. And you’re right, that is their business even that kinda feel sad to hear that, I guess that I’m being melodramatic here :P

Thank you for your response, Seabody.

I was wondering about Chuckles_82. Do anyone know about what happened to her?

I was inactive in this forum for almost 5 months, so I don't know. I recently just got back and find someone that I know is missing. I know that I’m not really that close, but she was a nice person, I loved her topic thread that talk about Sims Randomness and when I just see this “Old Member” thread, knowing being a Guest is because deleted their own account makes me sad. I know that this is not my business, I just can’t help but wondering.

So, if someone deleted their account they will never gained their access again to their inactive account? As I look from Trip, she didn't use her old account, she using a new account instead .

Yes, once an account is deleted it is irrecoverable. And Luna, if you're gone for a few months, you won't need to worry about your account; you have 257 posts. That hardly qualifies you as a low-posting inactive user. :)

Thank you so much, Seabody. It's a relief to know about that :)

Chuckles_82 never gave a reason as far as I know, she just left overnight as it were. As for Louise, again we're not sure really, she didn't give a reason this time for deleting her account. Seabody was correct about SimBlip.

The only accounts that would ever get purged are the ones with no posts.  Never one where the member has made posts on the Forum.  Anyone is always welcome to return after taking a break for whatever reason.  Any time you see "Guest" next to a member's name, it's almost always because that member deleted the account, except in the rare situations like SimBlip.  And we almost never know the reason for it and that makes me sad because I always wonder if it's something I could have helped with.

Seeing Guest beside any name is sad. I'm not as active as I used to be, so I'm glad to read my account isn't in any danger of being purged! As far as the not obeying the rules rule, I never even think about joining a tournament unless I know I can do it. I first read the rules, than ask myself if I could follow them. If the answer is yes, I join if it's no, I sit it out. This place is like a second home for me, and I can't even imagine my life without my forum friends.

I noticed that Rica hasn't been around in a few months - has she left? I hope everything is alright.

I don't know how permanent Rica's hiatus is or the reasons behind it, and I don't think anyone else does either. I wonder if she's okay too and even worry about her sometimes, but obviously, I respect her decision to take a break from the forum and simming, and whatever reasons she has for it.
