Call for Judgment: Clean up our player lists

Fails 1-9. - Qwazukee

Delete the blognomic account of anyone who meets any of the following conditions:

*They have been continously Idle for at least six months, and have not posted more than 10 posts and comments combined
*They have been continously Idle for at least twelve months, and have not posted more than 50 posts and comments combined
*They have never posted or commented on the blog

Because they’re never coming back.

Author for. I can be the one who does this, if no one else wants to.

against Last one is great.  First two…no.  Just no.  Old players who barely posted in this blog every once in a while come back.

They can… they can just remake their account.

against I know you haven’t been around long enough to know this, yuri, but we do occasionally have ancient members return (remember when Quazie came back, guys?) and they’d be pretty upset if we deleted their accounts.

Although, a very long time ago there was a protocol or removing players who were gone for ages. Was anyone here for that?

I’d vote for it if the number were larger though.

When this fails, I’ll repropose something.  against

Users who have never posted to the blog requesting to be players may be deleted from EE with no repercussions.  We used to do it every few months.

The “unregistered idle users” haven’t played since we moved the blog, but I see no particular reason to delete them from the sidebar.
