I also say that those might not be all that is going to be given in the long run--the team might find more things to "block out" for us when AG3 goes live :) Cannot wait!

i think you should delete the user only after sending an email asking them if its ok after its inactive for a long period of time


We have no plans to ever delete a user's profile.

I think we should have something like this with AG3. Perhaps allow users to 'block' certain people from posting on their profile, something similar to an 'ignore' function. I'm thinking I've seen this mentioned somewhere else, however I couldn't find it.


Yes, we're already doing this. It's part of the privacy settings. You can set things like "I want my achievements to be available to: friends/followers/everyone/nobody (pick one)"

You'll also be able to block a particular user from ever contacting you, however moderators and administrators will have the ability to contact you at any time.

You can also block a user's particular kind of activity, like "I want to stay friends with MrWalker82, but I don't want to see his high score submission activities"

This is Armorgames and not a "social website" or however called, like bookface or Facecomp or whatever. Dun ...

I agree with this idea. Though I've always wondered why points are given out for profile comments. I have only seen such nonsense on this site. Of course I support the removal of this "reward" for commenting.

Why you want to delete a user's profile? What if their computer broke and they couldn't get it fixed for a while? What if they were just wanted to do something else and had intentions of coming back?

I would never delete anyone's account except if it was because they were banned or something.

inactive users take up space and provide a template for spammers, and if their off for months, then they should think about other means of getting on, or just having a sleep option where the profile is locked down preventing it from spammers or deletion

Well, with the new AG3 the system should switch to "Just friends" can comment on your profile after a certain amount of time. After even more time it should then switch to "Comments closed".

That way if you do take an extended break from the site, but your friends ask you a question or something, you would be able to see it. Or if you are getting e-mails from a friends comments on your profile, it might entice a user you stopped visiting the site to come back.

Lemme look on that...

...

Yeah, on the dashboard, it says "Status Updates & Biography", which suggests the status posts that we can comment back and forth. So from what is posted now, it looks like you have the option to limit who gets to post on your updates and who doesn't. We'll have to see what happens later on, however.

With that being said, if we have these status posts to comment on, do we also get to have regular profile comments? If there will be a comment locker feature, will it close down all status posts in the Activity Stream?

Yes, I can toggle any user's "allow comments" setting.


That is hax, cormyn, and you know it...

I didn't even notice for a while...
I guess this option couldn't hurt.

It's also my job to keep comment spammers from abusing the system by posting hundreds or thousands of messages on profiles of users who don't visit the site very often. ;o)
