A Halo era Bungie Policy regarding inactive accounts was that a year of inactivity resulted in the deletion of ones account. Upon handing Halo over to Microsoft, it was decided to abandon this policy. The policy change makes sense as it allows former Bungie fans to flock back, without any issue, come the announcement of Destiny/Comet. I was wondering, will Bungie ever revert back to this policy? Is there good reason not to?

The "Last Active" thing on their profile is the last time that they logged in.

  • Doesn't a WLID delete after a period of time? If that were to happen, the inactive Bnet account would just sit there forever doing nothing besides wasting space. If I'm right about this, there's not really a reason to not go back to deleting inactive accounts unless they get rid of the WLID log-in system. [Edited on 09.20.2012 10:09 AM PDT]

[i]You dirty man you.[/i] OT: I would think having the ability of the user of the account to delete their own account (say they simply no longer desire to be part of the community) would be nice. Also maybe on the Update to delete perma-banned accounts, seeing as they no longer can interact anyway (just throwing out ideas). And last but not least, have two seperate (but linkable) sign in's for player stats, and forum interaction. That way people don't need to create a forum usable account simply to looks at their shiny badges. Or their Sadges Bhiny....

  • Well I guess we are lucky that its completely gone. Personally I agree with the current policy which is no deletion. It is better.

Don't moderators/admins have other means a normal user wouldn't to see how "inactive" an account is? Its quite obvious to even a normal user that a lot of accounts were just made to take it. Though I'm sure Bungie would need some sure way to avoid any "unfair termination" accusations.

Also, giving a better indication if a member has stopped coming here/died/had both testicles removed by mistake and is too busy with a lawsuit to come here anymore.
