After the success of our last activity check, we're going to continue with the same method to keep things as stress free for you guys as we can.
So, as last time then, staff will go through your accounts for you to see which characters are active. We ask for one post a month per character, but this includes all site interaction posts including shippers and games etc. If you have an absence up, or if you have directly contacted a staff member to let us know you're busy, your characters will not be archived during activity checks. And if your characters do get archived and you want to bring them back, just post in the Moderation Thread or message a staff member and we will talk you through reactivating them.
The one addition to this AC will revolve around unsorted and archived accounts. We build up a lot of these over time, and they can often be using names of canons that other people may want to pick up, so we need to clear them out every once in a while too. We're therefore giving you a week to tell us if you have any that you want to be saved (are you thinking of bringing back a character perhaps? Or do you still have an unsorted account that you just haven't posted an app for yet?). Post in this thread with the name of the account before the 24th of March and we will make sure it does not get deleted.
If a character has posted in the last month (since 17th February), that character is safe.
If a character hasn't posted in the last month (since 17th Februsry), that character is on a warning.
If a character hasn't posted in two months or more (since 17th January), but the member themselves have in a different account, that character is on a warning.
If a character hasn't posted in two months or more (since 17th January), and the member hasn't posted in a different account, that character will be archived.
All unsorted accounts made in the last month (since 17th February) will automatically be saved.
All archived accounts that have had their app archived in the last month (since 17th February) will automatically be saved.
Any account mentioned in a comment posted by a member below within a week (by 24th March) will be saved.
All other unsorted and archived accounts will be deleted.
The main reason we do activity checks, is to find out if anyone's ghosted from the site. It happens all the time - people get busy, the site didn't click with them, they don't have as much muse or time as they thought, and so on - so we just want to clear out accounts when this happens so canons are available for other people. Therefore the main thing we're looking for, is active members. If you're an active member, but you haven't been posting with all your characters, you'll just get warnings for your inactive characters. If however, a member is inactive overall, so none of their accounts have been posted with, we'll assume you've left us for now and archive your things.
As always, if a character gets archived and you're still interested in playing them, just let staff know and we'll move them straight back. If it was a recently made character, you'll just need to fill in claims again, but so long as nothing's been taken, you're fine to carry on playing them as before. If it's an older character, you'll need to update the app to reflect any big things that have happened to them on site, and staff will have to give it a quick read over again to make sure it fits with any rule or plot changes or bans that have been put in place since it was accepted the first time.
Warnings are just prompts to remind you to keep your characters active and get plotting with people. If you get two warnings in a row for a character, a (+1) will appear next to their name, and a staff member will send you a little prompt to make sure you're aware that this character is not active, and check that you still intend to play them. Remember though, if all of your accounts go inactive for two months or more and we don't hear from you, they will be archived - so make sure you post in shippers or games or even just your member board so we know you're still around!
Feedback on this new method for Activity Checks is very appreciated to please let Sigyn know any thoughts!

Of my I sorted accounts I'd like to keep Joshua Graham (because I had intended to make him) and Celeste Ludenberg ( because she was my primary account for a year and a lot of my dev board it under her account)
