'Restore User' Option

Post by Guest on October 28th 2015, 11:09 pm

Hi, I think there should be an option to restore a deleted users account, if they deleted it themselves and want to come back to your forum. Users who delete there accounts will receive 2 E-Mails: One to validate there deletion if they don't want to use it and dont want to be involved in the community anymore. And two if they change there minds if they chose to return. To me I think that its a good feature to be implemented.

Well in a way this can be done already, a user could simply request that their account be de activated. Then if they ever wish to return, they could simply request it be re activated and continue use. If one fully removes their account though, then it would be IMPOSSIBLE to bring back without creating a new account. This is because the account is FULLY REMOVED from the database, in essence the account never existed. I don't believe it is possible, for this reason to have a feature like this.

PHPBB could probably implement this?

Forumotion does not use the official phpbb software. It has it own modified version, with its own database. It wouldn't matter if they did or not, forumotion is still independent and unless the delete an account system gets a full re design, which I doubt it will, I don't see this being possible to implement.
