retirement characters

I am not sure if this is the right spot for this, so admins please move it if need be...

I have been noticing that as characters retire through the retirement system that they are not being removed as members of City, Guild, Orders, and Clans.

Is there a way that the admins can set it up so that when a character does retire they are removed from everything? Also can you remove all the retired characters now as well? I tried to remove a few retired from the Guild but got a message saying that the character has not been active for a long time and they could not have done anything to be removed.

Anyone else feel the same?

    I'm not really sure why they would need to be removed in the first place.

    every so often I go through the lists and kick out those that are not. I guess its my OCD where I like to see dormant/active list to be true of people that could come back? **shrug**

    I dont really feel like this is a big issue, personally. It doesnt really affect anyone if they stay on a list or not. Theyre just gone.

    Think of it like a funeral. When a person dies, you give them a tombstone to remember them. Retirement does the same thing... Only without the tombstone. Lol.

    Just idea'd a seperate block for retired people in the citizens dormant or gmembers dormant lists. Maybe that's a better solution than kicking them when/if it gets implemented.

    what's that supposed to mean? People retire characters for a number of different reasons

    Yeah, abandoned clans that can't be contested quite simply lose their momentum, a way to contest them should exist but the only place I see retired characters being useless or maybe even a hindrance is in rankings.

    I like that point of view.

    There are already mechanics in place to take a clan from an inactive player, even if the clan isn't democratic. I don't remember the time limit off hand, but after so long without a log in, the head position can be contested.

    The official admin stance is that they existed and did their things, so their rankings and such stand. We might find time to put them in a different part of the members lists, it's not a bad idea.

    Clans that are abandoned are weird. Mostly, they bought them, so they keep them. Clans done by a guild or city or whatever have commands to be reclaimed.

    I wish families had the ability to be considered registered organizations, so shops, manors, and clans could be family projects kept for posterity and don't fall into cracks like this one. I know manors would be difficult to parse out but it would be cool if we could make it work. Doesn't Imp have the ability to register families?
