Unscribe idea/question ???

Post by Count Dooku on January 6th 2015, 2:23 pm

Hi guys, I came across a weird idea back in the french support FM forum! Exclamation

One of the site moderators inquires (rightfully so) on the fact that in the past, unscribes left the member's name, (esp. for RPG forums as such) because on threads it is very disturbing to have the member username replaced by "guest" ...

Many claim that legal issues compelled FM to change the unscribe option, to delete the username.

But, now to be clear,
- we go via unscribe, our names stay on the forum regardless, (on edits, quotes, etc for example)
- keeping in mind that via Google searches also names change...

I ask of you the following, what do you think?
- do you want to go back to the old phpBB2 systems, or;
- to keep things as they are?

I am as hesitant as you, so I won't vote (yet) as I am following the french website's idea... but please it maybe pertinent to discuss it here as well. which is why I raise the issue.

EDIT: How to do this to suit everyone? Well, by making it optional,
- You want it, you validate in the ACP
- You don't, you leave it deactivated.

The major problem in this poll is the 2 options, "agree" or "disagree" as you have given us two different possibilities- to keep the same system or go back to phpbb2. Consider revising your poll options now before people start voting Very Happy

Hi, voting is put automatically,
So I don't understand your point. Smile

Do you agree or disagree ?
-Agree
-Disagree

The idea, is to understand if FM users want this, not voting. I am myself perplexed with this idea... As,
- I want to unscribe and lose my identity doing this
- I dislike when role playing to see "guest" names instead of the username... (which stayed in phpBB2 after unscribing)

However, Thanks for your note Rupture! Wink

Oh so you are suggesting to keep the username regardless of if the member had unsubscribed?
Sorry in your original post what I understood was whether we wanted:
"- do you want to go back to the old phpBB2 systems, or;
- to keep things as they are?"

Thus I got confused. So "Agree" is to keep the username after a member unsubscribes and "Disagree" is to keep it how it is now. Right?

Well my dear i am myself 50-50 xD lol!
But yes you got my idea .

Here in full honesty, I am hopeful that an option is integrated to our ACP's, saying, "if you want to revert to the old system, you do so, and opt to "revert" (otherwise, no)" Wink and thus to offer us the chance to decide ourselves.

However, we need to be aware that legally there maybe issues in case of litigation, so to solve it is part of my idea. (yes I admit it is complex, but I decided to propose it here because the French FM board has the same idea proposed and maybe our ideas here can help the voting there) Very Happy

Hi, SLGray; thanks for your input! Wink

Legally they have the right to ask that yes, but my question to FM initially is will the old method be reinstated as is suggested in this poll on the French Board?

> http://forum.forumactif.com/t374965-membres-afficher-le-pseudo-d-un-membre-supprime-dans-ses-messages

I am inquiring about this here too, because on the French poll there are side discussions that tangent towards legal domains, so I am hoping if wec developed good and pertinent argumentation to raise it back there as well Wink

Hi, am modifying the option: although I am not going to use it because I am not actively running any RPG forums.

Yes, so why do I suggest it then? to aid co-members who have rpg forums to revert back to the old way (i.e have usernames visible after unscribing).

How to do this to suit everyone? Well, by making it optional,
- You want it, you validate in the ACP
- You don't, you leave it deactivated.

I found that this way will also to benefit the guys on the french board...

See you soon!

A new idea to debate?

asking membres the option? (to keep username after delete, (yes - no))
This way those who validate keep, and cancel no.

in thr likes users are afraid to be kept on record after unscribe they cancel the option (or click yes, if they want to activate depending on guest rules...)
