In other words, you're asking us to clear out WRX Demon's account again or face the indecency of being called lazy for simply moving on.

I don't mind doing the work if a review of banned accounts is decided by the admins, but I don't see much of a point. The best argument I can make is to delete both the signature and avatar so that, for whatever reason you're reading an old thread page, the page loads just a little faster since there would be less content to download. Even that isn't a very compelling argument since it won't actually affect the vast majority of the traffic this site receives. Also, you can limit content in your Board Settings and change your Skin to make it as minimalistic as you want for faster load times.

I too think it's clutter, as well as all the members who have long since abandoned this forum.
I.E.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO 1 ACTIVE MEMBER AND 2093479238 INACTIVE MEMBERS! YAY!
Clutter. Also, sometimes I like to start birthday threads, and 9/10 times I check the members profile, it's just like looking for a butterfly and finding an empty husk; disappointing, only for the fact that said user hasn't been online in 3+ years.
UGH
SO MUCH CLUTTER
MAKE IT STAHP

So please can we clear out ancient relics [inactive members] and long-since banned members? I'd say, anyone who's been banned over 6 months ago? This place is like an episode of Hoarders. :/

If you were a moderator, you wouldn't be able to get away with clearing an account because of "responsibility". Personally identifiable information that exists on an account is there because the member felt comfortable having it there. Being banned doesn't change that.

Load times for the site are not affected because of avatar and sig size limits. Removing would have an imperceptible effect on the time it takes to load a page.

If seeing a banned member's post bothers you that much, put them on an ignore list.

EDIT: Changed "inconceivable" to "imperceptible" due to incorrect definition of the first term.

Ugh. This is not a damn democracy. I refuse to vote on something that is completely up to the moderators. I think if a banned member requests it, fine.

Otherwise, stop the childish foot stamping about things that don't matter.

True, it's not a democracy. However, we are obligated as staff to address member grievances as they happen. Polls are a great way to gather data on forum trends, and while they typically don't end with a guarantee of things happening, they can influence the direction of the forum in the long run.

I'd like to add that when traditionally banning a member via the warn panel, the mod or admin performing the action is not presented with special options to wipe the account. The system just treats it as another warning, and automatically shifts them into the banned group. Warnings are not handled via editing a member's account.

Is there any specific reason why you want that, or is it just a rhetorical post?

He's been going on about being a mod yeah?
Give him a week long sample. He'll either do the job right or fall flat. We'll either be impressed or we'll snicker at him.

He wants a taste, give it to him. Who knows, he might stop bringing it up in the future. Take it how you will, your call to make.

He was one of the four finalists in our moderator search a few weeks ago, actually. The suggestion of a "probationary" mod-hood was discussed.

There we go. Question answered.

See, at least you were considered Rudy. Better luck next shuffle.


EDIT: On topic, I voted no. Who cares. I wanna laugh at the banned members anyway and remember the good times. In example, wrxdemons weeb as fuck moonrunes signature and his contrary LOL YOU'RE A BIG WEEB AND IM NOT HAHAHA dissociative attitude. What a classic. Its like the people in online games with thousands of hours played who go LOL NERD GET A LIFE when you wreck their shit.

Personally, I find banned members' posts that got them banned amusing. Cleaning up their avatars and signatures would mean less joy in reading their banning posts. :3 Banned member group should suffice.

Ignoring #3 for a moment...

Would you consider "probationary" mod-hood for Rudy if I were to voluntarily step down for the duration? He's more active than I am on IDW and has a much greater interest in being a mod. If it doesn't work out, I'll resume the position. If it does, he can keep it.
