I’m not talking about going rouge and banning them all. It would require admin approval from the XGen team first. While being inactive doesn’t violate any rules, BBH rules have changed in the past and the inactive players won’t even know since they don’t log on.
The obvious downside is that a rare inactive player may choose to hop on BBH, in which case the mod team would have to facilitate the unban for them.
It would not be time consuming as there is a script that automatically bans inactive players that have been used in the past (re-call the Nooga weekend in which thousands of inactives were banned and activity boomed). Although at around 28kbp the immense volume of accounts will take a bit of time. But the time is definitely not the factor here, it could be done effectively in a few days and not affect any active player.
While this certainly might not seem logistically appropriate, we’re talking about a dead game that could seriously use some activity boost. I think the positives here outweigh the negatives. I personally know that this method is highly favourable among the little community we have left, so I’m simply putting it on the table for you guys to discuss.
