I'm just wondering when and how users are purged from the forum rolls, so that their posts are no longer discoverable. I know this happens because of my failure to find posts by one of the most prominent users in the early years. Baron Drocis Fondorlatos was an early huge backer who had the dream of making his PVP town Rat's Nest a thriving PVP town. He was the most frequent poster in the forums with over 18000 posts in all. His posts had more likes than anyone except DarkStarr. They were very opinionated, but very well-written. His dreams were never realized as the game development went in a direction he didn't like. He eventually changed his name to "I’m done with this game" and rage quit. Back in 2018 I sent a private message to Berek, who was then Community Manager asking how to find the Baron's old posts, because searching for his old and new names suddenly yielded no search results. Berek said he hadn't even noticed the change and would look into it. I wrote him again a few weeks later and he said again he would look into it. And that was the end of the story. In the meantime, the user "I'm done with this game" has also been completely removed from the Top Lists on the Member page as if he never existed. I am not complaining about posts from defunct users disappearing - it is the prerogative of the game developer to remove old posts that might only sow confusion in the active player base. I did wonder if there was some announcement in the past on the part of the developers that this would happen. If not, it's no big deal. I'm just curious and apologize if I wasted anyone's time with a question that has lost relevancy.
