That should be picked up in AG3, since anything from posting a thread to simply updating your About would be tracked and your activity would be refreshed.

I also propose a formal note to the admins saying "I'm gonna be gone for X months" that would give you immunity to inactivation of an account. What if my Alaska/Canada trip was twice as long? I would be in BIG trouble. However long the deadline is for deleting accounts, if they know they are going to be gone longer than that, they should be able to state "Hey, I'm gonna be gone and I would like to save my account".

If no one has already said this idea lol

A ghost account is basically an account that has been inactive for a really long time. Like, the person hasn't done anything with that account for a very long time.

The accounts are still there, but there may be newcomers who want that account name, even though they are not using it. This is why we are having these sorts of arguments on ghost accounts.

For the time being, we'll be keeping all accounts. We'll discuss this more another time.
