On Bombarda we do passive activity checks every few months just to see who is still around, but this is all done by staff so you don't need to do anything for it. The details are below, but feel free to ask us questions about it too.
<i>This next section only applies to student characters:</i>
One extra thing for this activity check revolves around the end of the school year. Mid-July, the schools will break for summer, so we take this opportunity to update the <a href='http://bombardamaxima.jcink.net/index.php?showtopic=30'>character roster</a> and individual accounts/apps to reflect this change. Therefore <b>if you currently play a student character</b> we ask you to take this opportunity to <b>update their 'year' in both their mini profile and their app</b> so if they are currently a sixth year, change it to seventh year in both places. The characters that need to do this are listed below - post in this thread when you've done it and I'll remove the character's name from the list:
If your character is currently a seventh year, then they are graduating from school completely, congratulations! As well as updating their mini profile and app to reflect their change from school to worker, please <b>also post below with their <a href='http://bombardamaxima.jcink.net/index.php?showtopic=22'>occupation claim</a> and new member group</b>. Use the same code as you would in the claim itself, just post it here so it's all in one place, and if they don't have a job in mind for straight after school, you can just post 'unemployed' in the code and state the member group as 'OTHER'. Again, I'll delete the character's name from the list when this is done:

Please do this in the next week so before the <b>8th of July</b>, or we'll start chasing you about it. If anyone wants to make any other changes to their characters (i.e. a job change) then also feel free to post below and we'll do that at the same time. Also if anyone wants to drop a character, let us know here too.
<center><div class="forumrules-small">THE SUMMARY</div>
<b>If a character has posted in the last month (since 1st June), that character is safe.<p>
If a character hasn't posted in the last month (since 1st June), that character is on a warning.<p>
If a character hasn't posted in two months or more (since 1st May), but the member themselves have in a different account, that character is on a warning.<p>
If a character hasn't posted in two months or more (since 1st May), and the member hasn't posted in a different account, that character will be archived.<p><hr><p>
All unsorted accounts made in the last month (since 1st June) will automatically be saved.<p>
All archived accounts that have had their app archived in the last month (since 1st June) will automatically be saved.<p>
Any account mentioned in a comment posted by a member below within a week (by 8th July) will be saved.<p>
All other unsorted and archived accounts will be deleted.<p>
<div class="forumrules-small">THE DETAILS</div>
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 any taken canons are available again for other people. Therefore the main thing we're looking for is active <i>members</i>. 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 they've left us for now and archive their things. If a member has an <a href='http://bombardamaxima.jcink.net/index.php?showforum=15'>absence</a> posted or has spoken directly to a staff member about an absence, their characters will not be archived (but will still receive warnings).
As always, if a character gets archived and you're still interested in playing them, just let staff know via the Moderation Thread
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. If you get three warnings in a row for a character, a (+2) will appear next to their name and there will start to be a few responses. If this happens to several of your accounts, we will ask you to drop down to one character if you have more than that. If it's just for one of your characters, we'll ask you to consider archiving this character. Both of these will be requests though, and if you think you can handle them or up your activity, we will happily let you try for another run. In both cases though, we will ask you to drop any VIP characters you have (these are important site characters so mostly just heads of the schools and of Ministry departments), and you will need to present a strong reason not to do this if you don't want to. 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 method for Activity Checks is always appreciated to please let Sigyn know any thoughts!
