A mix of both really. While I make periodic backups of databases, I make them once or twice a week. It's essentially impossible for me to make a backup after everyone makes a post and such. I'm going to be working on some code to recover posts if anyone else decides to do this, however this does nothing for the current posts.

On some forums, if someone wants to delete their account they can, and all posts stay in, but there's just no avatar, signature, basic info, and their username is no longer clickable, and no one can ever take that name again. How about putting in that option?

I think that all that would end up doing is promoting the making of multiple accounts, which this board has a rule against. That would just end up creating a problem for the moderators. The mods could get rid of dead or inactive accounts if they want them gone.

I think that is a good rule to add. Nice thinking SeiUsa!

Unfortunately, that doesn't necessarily prevent the "N/A" incidents from happening, as someone could just get rid of all their posts, then delete their account anyways. We don't want to remove the edit feature, either, because sometimes people do make honest mistakes that they later want to edit.
