Re: [Merge] lp:~widelands-dev/widelands-website/delete_user into lp:widelands-website


Thanks for your suggestions, all changed :)

> How about calling the deleted user "Anonymous"?

Not sure... reading "Anonymous" as a username may lead into the conclusion that anonymous writing is possible. My first idea for such a username was "Deleted_User" or "User_deleted" but i found it too long. Ideally it should be some name which describes the action and that makes clear that a user did it by himself (and not a forum moderator or admin -> censor alarm). "Self_removed" or so...

Regarding my comment on 2018-09-15: I wasn't able to find a solution to prevent writing PMs to such a user. It is a flaw of django-messages, so i filed a bugreport to the project -> https://github.com/arneb/django-messages/issues/118 I did everything to prevent sending such messages: The reply buttons for messages are not shown, the profile page isn't shown and the autosearch for users when writing a string in the Recipient box will not show inactive users. The only solution i can think of is some javascript. But i don't think it is worth the work.

So from my side this can go in if we have agreed on a username to show for deleted users (plural ;) ). But we can change it also anytime later on.
