I'm sure this post has been here before
But I really think the site needs a way to recycle names.
I've been trying to get the name "Odin" pretty much since I've joined this site.
but heres my problem:http://forums.d2jsp.org/user.php?i=322
made in 2002, made 1 post.. never logged on again.
This is either a multi, or someone who just didn't like the site.
He's not coming back. The name is just collecting dust.
I know i'm not the only one who has had this problem
My idea was in situations like this one, send the user a message.. or an email whatever works
saying that the name is going to be changed, to "userxxxxx1" etc. giving them the opportunity to declare the account not inactive. ( after a certain time period )
If they don't declare it not active, the name will be changed to a random name.
An account such as the one above, would require access to the original email just to log on, so an email + pm seems like it would be pretty effective.
obviously this can't be done in every case, but situations like mine ( and many others ) wheres it is very apparent that the user is never going to use the account again it seems fair.
I would gladly pay real money for this, as would alot of my friends.
Maybe have a "request a name" process or something similar to that. I imagine it would only require 1 moderator to handle this.
I have a feeling this is probably not even going to be taken seriously, but hey figured I would try ya know
thanks for reading
