I woud like to propose to CCP that the twelveteen million or so dead/dormant trial accounts that have never been activated since trial end from the last 7 years be deleted and the names contained therin released for new players/characters.

CCP can simply send an email giving them notice (like the emails we all get inviting us back after 6 months of not playing) and then terminating the accounts after the given time. My proposal is for dormant TRIAL accounts only. If a player has activated then in all fairness they should be able to keep name and character for any future use.

Thoughts?

Yes, but for trial accounts only.

I totally agree with this if it regards trial accounts only and a 30 day notification is sent beforehand.

Yes for cleaning up the character namespace. It even makes the DB guys happy.

I kinda agree with this one. IMHO, it should be accounts that are more than six months expired and with two million or less skill points. That will clean up a lot of the namespace, and clean up the servers as well.

Supported.

For non-activated trial accounts, absolutely.

I support this in principle, but it is probably going to be more trouble to implement than it is worth.

More name options and cleans up the DB.

If it was only a trial and never activated after a year, it makes sense to toss them in the meat grinder.

I will agree this, only applied to trial accounts as already suggested, is probably a good idea, even though this character was one that laid dormant as an unactivated Trial for a year or two before friends dragged me in full-speed.

Agreed.

However, any char that has ever been made non-trial should be left untouched.

Ya, any trial account over 6 months old should be given notice and then removed.

Implement? That's a couple of SQL queries to purge the accounts and to clean up the associated data afterwards.

If those players have interacted with others ( contracts / Kill mails ) there will be broken links in the database.

e.g. You killed a trial account player and got a kill mail to him/her.
ccp deletes the players record.

You kill mail is now broken because it point to a victim who no longer exists.

I support renaming them to [Caldari|Amarr|Minmatar|Gaylentte] Citizen ####### though
