    Angry I am fairly certain my account was deleted

    I played CTFS for years and then was one of the first to play quakelive, however, I haven't played in a while and coming back there is no trace of my account. My alias is gone from all of my friends friends lists as well.

    Are inactive accounts being deleted after a period of time?

    Edit: More to add, who thinks its even remotely possible for the name "Spazz" to have only just recently been taken as of August 10th, 2013?

    Apparently it's quite possible.

    Only because my account was deleted... Didn't realize premium paying members were dispensable. Guess I am not going to re up the pro payments >.<

    When I first got here,,I tried useing the name I originally had on Mplayer and Gamespy. Lowlife.It was allready taken..That was in 10/12. He had not played for 2 months previouse. in 7/13,it was used again..So they do recycle names.And as far as Paying customers,I would think they would keep it open if you had a year Sub,,you would think they would keep it current till the end of that time in hopes of renewal. If not then maybe it would be right to dump it...

    No, they aren't. Premium/Pro accounts are never deleted, even when inactive.

    Code:
    02:23.18 <sponge> if you have a sub, a clan founded, or a trophy case award, it'll never delete
    Which means that first your subscription expired, then some time passed, then you were sent a reminder mail ("your account is about to expire, please login within two weeks to keep it" or something), then you've ignored that mail (it only needed you to log in, doesn't require playing games to confirm activity) and only then it was finally deleted.

    It's a good system designed not to harm anyone. No reason to be mad about it.
