Old accounts aren't deleted? (in General)

MissingNo February 20 2007 8:56 PM EST

I thought that accounts without supportership were deleted after awhile. I saw an unsupported account whose last login was January 21, 2005, the same exact day they made the account.

were they in a clan? I've found a few old accounts, but heard that Supportership, or clan membership could be grounds for a stay from deletion...

No. They aren't in a clan. The person played for less than a day more than 2 years ago and their account is still there. I'm just asking because I want the name of their minion. x(

what user? and is it a minion name or a team name? :P

Guess this might be broken:

Q: But entire accounts can be deleted too?

A: Yes, if you are inactive long enough. Inactive accounts are purged starting after 20 days; the period of inactivity required for purging gets longer as you gain PR. You will also receive a warning email. If you do not login within 24h your account will be deleted. And no, you cannot "suspend" your account to prevent this; that would defeat the point of having this.

Supporter accounts are never deleted.
