I just received an email asking whether nor not I am still interested in the LUG. The email asked me to post a message, if so. The implication is my account will be deleted if I don't respond. I am posting this email for 2 reasons. The first is to fulfill the requirement to post in order to retain my account. The second is to suggest there should be some simple way of indicating I wish to retain my account. I don't post frequently to LUG because I haven't been using Logic Pro X as much as I have in the past. However, that doesn't mean I want my account deleted. If I didn't respond and my account was deleted, then when I have a question to ask, I would have to reregister. I don't know if I could use the same name and password, but my guess is I could not. If I could, it leaves open the possibility that someone else could create an account with my id. Either of these possibilities has problems. If my account is deleted, in order to post a question I would have to choose a different user id and pw. The posts I have made previously then would not be "connected" to those I make in the future. If the site allows reregistering using an old id, then that would allow someone else to hijack my identity. I understand the desire on the part of system admins to clean up "orphaned" accounts. Why not have a thread that they can use to indicate their interest in retaining their account? For example, the email can ask them to post a brief message to this thread (e.g., a message that just says "bump" or something equally short). That will provide sys admins with the feedback they need to identify dead accounts and at the same time not require users to make up an artificial post in order to retain their accounts.
