A verified account is necessary for using any social aspect of this site. If they're not gonna use the account for anything but watching videos, they could easily make a new account in literally a minutes time. I could delete your account right now and you really wouldn't have lost anything (just an example).

I don't see why you're arguing. My logic is infallible, therefore, I'm not even gonna bother changing my plan since there's no points that have been made or could be made that will override what I've already thought out. Limits on usernames are necessary and a good amount of the ones over 35 characters are extra spam accounts people have made.

I just looked and only 8 out of these 100 users use or have used their account for communication with others on the site. The rest are either bogus accounts or of people who just wanted any random account to watch videos with. The fate of the 8 in question is still undecided. I'll probably leave them alone but they won't be allowed to post on the forum.


i was gonna try to ignore this topic, since i made the mistake of not considering the chat section,,(i cant remember) i think when the chat was first made, it asked u to put in a screen name seperate from ur main CR forum/etc acct like ur acct could be one thing and ur chat name different, but i dunt think BK even considered the chat section when he thought about this, (dunt lie now)

that post is arrogant as hell BK, not only do u threaten that dude with deletion, u also say that this was your plan, this was your logic, this was something u posted, no one mod should overrule other mods without consulting them too

yes limits are needed, but u used lying about the page being stretched as a basis for deletion instead of just saying that this was a matter of preference

^This had nothing to do with preference I had initially thought it was okay for these accounts to exist and told other mods NOT to delete these accounts since I thought they posed no harm but then one of these users posted on the site and it stretched the page. I got a whole mess of complaints about it. I told all the mods about my plan before hand, the chat never allowed you to have a different name than your given account name, I didn't threaten him with account deletion I just pointed out how his position was flawed and gave an example of how a new user like him wouldn't lose anything by me deleting the account, I'm not a liar so don't claim that i am, I knew it was gonna sound arrogant but I didn't care because I had already told you guys not to discuss this.

I have completely valid reasons and all of the mods who have responded to this issue agree that these accounts should be deleted. Some of them think it was a bad idea for me to make this public cuz people like you are taking it the wrong way and instead I should've just done it privately.

well.. i dont care about usernames(becuz there's no prob for me), but i think the ppl who make usernames with 30+ letters are just messed up... there are still plenty of shorter usernames available here unlike msn, yahoo, or other stuff....i agree with deleting usernames made around august with 30+ letters(because they're probably made just for chatting)....but not on active members..... i stop now.

Hmm. I agree with Mods for deleting users with long usernames as long as it helps the site run. But there is one thing i can't ignore. IF there are people with long usernames that have been using it for a long time then they should retain some of the Badges, CR points or any other stuff obtained through supporting CR. IF they plan on making a new account that is. Thats the least you(Mods) could do for them.

And for those(people who just make an account just to watch something) complaining about this deletion stuff, I would have to say its your own fault. I mean COME ON 5-8 letters + 1-3 numbers can have a large number of possible outcomes so why bother on 30+ characters?
