Suspend Account Temporarily
It would be really nice if there would be a function on the site, with which you can put your account on "unactive".Which means for other people it looks like you deleted your account, and without putting it back on "active" the user cannot use the site as well.
This would be nice because I want to take a break from feabie for example, but i don't want to remove my whole account. That means all pictures will be gone, and the time im on this site will start over again once i recreate my account. Is this something you guys could think about?
So, my idea is to have a take a break button. I know a few people love to just delete there account for a while and come back make a whole new account again.
But, I think it would be much easier to have a take a break button, to deactivate your account then reactivate it when you log back in. ;)
Hi there, would it be possible to be able to deactivate grommr, like you can with other social media platforms? Sometimes you just need a break and deleting it seems very nuclear!
add the option the deactivate your profile rather than only the ability to delete. sometimes people may want to take a break, but not delete their profile as they plan to return.
Feature that allows you to 'take a break' and freeze your profile/account. This would make your profile unavailable on the site, but you can choose when to reactivate your account. Once you decide to reactivate your account or unfreeze it, you can do so with the click of a button. When you do this, the option to maintain your profile or make changes to it will come up, but otherwise your profile is as you left it. That is all.
youtube has this 'thing' where you can downvote something someone says and if enough people downvote it it remains hidden by default. Basically flagging it. If enough of the community flags something it can at the very least censor it until a moderator or admin can deal with it. This would also prove helpful; when ip abusers post illegal or gross content.
Add an option in account settings to set your profile as invisible, meaning that with one click you can temporarily make your profile impossible for anyone to see or find by any means. In the interests of security you should be unable to view other profiles while this is in effect.
If you could just give the option of deleting your profile and being able to come back rather than deleting it all, that would be great. thanks
It would be nice to have a notification function for statuses and images of favored profiles.
Also to allow account deactivation rather than full on deletions.
there should be a 'hide my profile' feature for those who don't wan to delete their account but want a time out
Have a feature to deactivate your account instead of only being able to delete it permanently
Create like a hide your profile option like plenty of fish. Sometimes you just need a break from people.
I believe this is a good idea but better if combined with a reputation system: http://forums.grokiolabs.com/forums/281889-feedback/suggestions/7064528-reputation-tracking
If someone who has been around for a while and has an excellent reputation flags a profile as spam, it should count for a lot more than if someone who just signed up does it. In fact, it could even count for enough to hide the profile on their own... and spare users from having to wait until some X number of member report it. It would greatly speed up getting rid of egregious trespassers.
FWIW, I feel that a "suspended" profile should be simply hidden from view by default and treated as if having a negative reputation. Members could, if they wanted, change their settings to see posts by such profiles, or change their settings to allow wall posts or being contacted by such profiles.
This would be completely separate from the my type filter, of course.
When a certain number of users report a profile, suspend the profile from the site until the admins' can take further action. The user should have no ability to interact with users until admins address the concerns.
A lot of people leave and return to this site over and over again, wouldn't it be easier if you could just make your account dormant so you wouldn't lose all of your friends, photos and other content? Sometimes people need a break from the gaining scene to figure out what they want. That doesn't mean they aren't coming back.
In the future to ease the burden of the admins/mods, you should implement an Upvote and Downvote feature to threads. Too many Downvotes and you could automatically hide or close threads from further postings. Also a close thread from future postings feature can be very useful to admins/mods.
I think that users who have second thoughts about gaining should be able to suspend their account, rather than completely deleting it. That way, if they end up changing their mind again (which many do) they don't have to start at square one. Plus, it would save all the user's information, following/followers lists, photos, etc. so that they don't have to re-add when they return and other users don't have to re-follow them.
