are you eyeballing the username roxas as well bc big mood lol. anyway, i can't speak for bans, but i believe that the post count thing is like 'they posted a lot and have a higher chance of returning' than if someone posted no times and hasn't been on in forever. it might also be a case of server strain in deleting that many posts because when you take someone's username (as i recall), you basically have to delete that member that you're taking it from. i could be mistaken, though.
If a user has made many posts, they're a noticeable part of PC's history and we don't like to erase that unless they request it themselves.
Taking the name of a banned member can lead to confusion, especially if the banned member was a really bad egg. I think I'll confer more with the other admins on that particular point though.
Well, if there is any chance of this working out, I'd love to discuss it with the mods. I've had my eyes on this particular username for several years now... Every time I think of changing my name with my crystal tier support, there's only one name I would want, but I can't use it because I go check the rules.
I hope maybe we can work something out. I've been on this site for a while and it has a lot of sentimental value for me, I don't plan to leave, but I have hope that maybe something can be done?
Is it an option for you to take an extremely similar name? As in, the name but like with a period or a dash or some other small extra character tacked on.
Mmmmm.... If there's even a small chance for me to take the name I want, I wouldn't want to add a dash or period at the end. If the name gets freed up somehow, I absolutely want it, letter for letter honestly. And I won't be changing my name unless I can get that name, either. I am pretty sure it's going to be this name for a loooong time unless I can somehow get my hands on the one I've been eyeing for years
