    Hi, we do not delete accounts that have posts. Your account can only be disabled should you wish it to be.

    Ok that's what I figured was going on. Web sites want there user numbers to look high so they won't delete accounts even if there not being used ever again.

    @Cdose any open forum you subscribe to does this. its not about numbers its about giving the person a chance to still return without creating a new account and carry on from where they left off. so disabling the account only puts it in a sleep mode. the moment you log on again in the future it will automatically activate the account again so that you can carry on posting

    actually the main reason that acciounts are not deleted is due to the loss of information this would create. If i deleted my account for example (i am rarely on masa at the moment) it would play havoc with threads which i have commeneted on, been helped in and have helped in over the years. By leaving the account open by inactive other people can read those threads and possibly learn something from them later on.

    Its got very little with forums trying to boosed numbers of memebers.

    deleting a person who got posts, would result in a broken conversation.

    Imaging this is a post
    So, what the.....
    would be like hearing one part of a telephone conversation and you desperately wanted to know what the other person said.

    If member numbers are the thing, we would invite all the spammers from China. We could double our member count within a week.
