Inactive LJ Account Purge

Inactive LJ Account Purge

Short, concise description of the idea
If an account has been inactive for a predetermined amount of time, send a notification to the user to keep or purge the account.

Full description of the idea
I have noticed that a lot of people are interested in usernames that have been taken and inactive for years. My suggestion is an automated notification to the user that asks if he or she would like to keep or purge the username that has been inactive for a predetermined amount of time. After the notification is sent, the account should be purged if 1: the user replies that he or she doesn't care what happens to the username or to go ahead and purge the account, or 2: the person does not reply in a predetermined amount of time [ like, maybe, one or two weeks ].

An ordered list of benefits
  • More usernames will become available to those who want them.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • The person contacted might not be able to respond on time for other reasons other than inactivity.
