    Tickets can take some time to be responded to, though you've only been waiting 48 hours which in fairness isn't too long. if you haven't heard anything in a month then you could chase it up.

    Hmm, well it seems fair that they cannot release the account because it still contains a submission, although I do agree that users who registers accounts, upload content and then abandon them for the sake of squatting the account are annoying

    but the iusse is even the upload is 8 years old and his not used the account that long is there no rule on how long they have an account for before it becomes removed

    True the submission may be over 8 years old, but the user may attempt to regain the account to access the submission, you never know.

    There used to be a post with information regarding the official line on abandoned accounts,but i cannot find it at the moment, so it might be wise for a staff member to come in here and give the official stance on this so there is a record for the future.


    EDIT
    Found a post from Yak over 8 years ago, on this subject.

    I should point out the term "deletion" is erroneous as FA doesn't currently have the system in place for account deletions, other content such as submissions, journals etc can be deleted however.

    Without rolling the conversation off-topic, FA lacks the ability to delete accounts (similar to that of renaming accounts too) due to the way the site was originally coded, the database relies on matching usernames for things instead of it matching a userID. However recently a mention for username changes was made, meaning they may be possible in the near future.

    The way I understood it, you could possibly expect it later this year. But I would not say for certain.
