I was an infrequent player on the snooker site, however recently when trying to login, it wont let me , and searched the player as a guest and it says no such player, any idea why, prob last login was around 15mth since

It's the same over there as well. If you're inactive for a year your account will be closed. You can create the account again though

I'm sure it's 12 months, though it should display 12 months on your account between 11 and a half months until the account is closed (which would explain why people might be thinking it's 13 months, if it is 12 months )

Saved my account once or twice on both sides

I'm fairly sure its 13, seen some accounts over 12 months still online then the day after on the 13th month they disappeared.

I think you get two emails during that time (i think one is at 8 months but not sure).

Its a shame though as some of Snooker legends has their stats disappeared because of their inactivity (johnnydollar springs to mind).

I wish their highest ranks, breaks etc could be a shadow instead so it could remain on the ranking lists and have a true ranking list rather than guessing where you should be.

For example both mich and tiger_woods either deactivated or lost their accounts but was higher than me in Mini Golf so on the current list i am third but on a larger scale i should be 5th.

Shame the shadow thing won't come into effect though

Seriously no space to keep names?

Lots of tops players losing stats for taking a break.

Players sit on their stats like a mallard sits on eggs. It happens on pool too,i wish they'd lose stats after 3 months absence.

not everyone, some people have genuine lives to live (e.g. families) so funky becomes less important, i think they should keep the stats forever, if they lose account or deactivate a "shadow" is made of their rank.

least then you know how far you are in the world rather than guessing where you should be as i posted a while back.

To me rank was important 5 years ago but not anymore and it is the same for a lot of people

Dgenaratio it's a shame the name will run out.

The only good thing is that he has a new born baby on his profile photo, so maybe he found a new love. Also he reset his stats just before leaving.

They say nothing good lasts forever

The only thing gone is a name.

true but then someone else comes along and makes a mockery of what the name stood for.

seen it with buddytobud (RIP) and johnnydollar and won't be long before they do it to other legends.

just a shame that buddytobud and mk_lad's names wasn't kept as Retired like they should have been
