Amongst all the talk of changing usernames, I was wondering if "Absent Member" accounts are going to be deleted. There are a number of usernames that are unavailable due to these accounts, most of which are no longer used alts anyway.


Does anyone know if the update will include that?

Maybe if we ask the employees nicely and give them a treat they'll answer us.

Its possible that could happen, but its also possible they will keep them because you never know the users could come back.

We will have to wait and see.

Now, in the quantum moment before the closure, when all become one. One moment left. One point of space and time.

I know who you are.

You are Destiny.

A few years ago Achronos mentioned that accounts won't be deleted for inactivity anymore, perhaps the system was bugged and they plan to flush out all the old accounts again? But who knows.

she/he does not correct format sentences, therefore for intelligent matured members of society that may interact with her/him, may find her/him UNattractive for the reason that she/he does not comprehend with their level to successfully have a conversation therefore it will be socially an awkward interaction which may be wanted to be avoided

second i do not find it physically possible for a PERSON to be a ice cream truck.

Probably not, unfortunately.

They got rid of the auto-delete system for inactive accounts quite a while ago, so I wouldn't think that those accounts will be deleted in the update. However, I don't know that as a fact.

Really old 'Absent Member' accounts which haven't linked their gamer tags do get deleted after a while anyway, I highly doubt Bungie will do this (unless they do a huge second account purge of the whole site, which I also highly doubt).

Edit: After reading the guy above me it seems that they no longer auto delete accounts, I didn't realize that system had changed. In which case, I think they should bring it back.

The Fight is Finished and the Road to Recon is behind !

Not going to happen.. Although I agree that very old accounts with no Gamertag linked should be deleted.

Don't fret, there are still plenty of other good usernames out there.

Hi I'm RT and I like to argue!

If the site update deletes all our usernames, it will be a textbook example of how not to implement a site update.
