Recycling of the Pixel Kind
Posted April 17, 2010on:
With Earth Day coming up, we thought we’d join in and do some recycling of our own. After 7 years, we’re finally going to do some username recycling! Don’t worry, if you’re here to read this post, your username won’t be recycled because it’s currently in use. 🙂
Starting this week, we will begin recycling usernames from accounts that have not been active (not logged in) for 2 years or more. The purpose of this is to free up some of the more desirable usernames that are currently bound to inactive accounts, and allow active and engaged users to enjoy them!
For those of you who are curious, the inventories in these accounts will not be touched and if the user returns, we can reset their username to something new and they won’t have to pay the fee to change their username (if applicable).
