By the cruel and wicked administrator (that's me :lol: )

:idea: The fact is that on a forum you assume that others are reading what you say and you expect a reply from people when you address them either in public or by private message, which isn't going to happen if accounts are left inactive for months at a time.

So, since January 2016, the forum has specified to members that:

To remain a member you need to post at least one message per month and log in to the forum at least once per year. The accounts of members who have not visited the forum for more than a year are deleted on January 1st and July 1st.


I'm sure there are many members who don't know this, so I'm issuing this little reminder. Especially if you have secondary accounts on the Italian, French or Spanish forums.


That's all,
:bye:

Of course, the ones who would need the reminder will never see it, and the ones who log in to see it in time would therefore not need it :mrgreen:

Not sure if this is the correct place to post but I think my long time account was deleted since I forgot to login. I tried to connect and login and would not work. I can't seem to PM members or would have sent a private message to a Moderator

Hi Ali. As you can see from this thread, inactive accounts are removed from time to time. To maintain your account all you need do is, firstly, post an average of one message for each month of membership - you can build up a "credit" in advance, but going into "arrears" risks the closure of your account. The second thing you have to do is to log in at least once each year.

You'll be able to use the PM system after your second message has been approved. Since you seem to have been missing for some time you might find it useful to post a new introduction here.

Thanks for the information. I was a member for 10 years with a good number of posts. I also was unable to do the forgot password link. It could be simply entering the wrong password but could not reset it. I am quite confident I did recently login as I sold a guitar here.

Hi Ali,

Are you sure you were using the same username before? There are no records of guitars sold here by anyone with that username, but there was someone of that name whose account was deleted in August last year because he had been here for more than 3 months but had not posted a third message (see the last paragraph of this post). Perhaps you had a different name.

My username was "Alhambra" I don't see my username on the deleted list which could be a good thing, so perhaps its a wrong password issue, but still cannot reset it. I also do not see my for sale ad in the archives... :?

Ah yes, I see the sale ad here. I even found your old introduction here. Unfortunately the fact that the username there is in a thin black font means the account no longer exists. Regardless of the number of posts, accounts are deleted if a member hasn't logged in for over a year, for the reasons given in the first post of this thread. (Not all the deletions are recorded in the list I mentioned, as it's relatively new). Once an account is deleted from the database, there is no way to restore it. Sorry about that. I'm afraid the only thing you can do now is to continue with your new account, and as suggested earlier you may want to post a new introduction so that people can find it by clicking on your new username.
