Is the code still around somewhere?

Well, currently names, stats and events don't get deleted anymore and there's that plan of keeping the objects on the corpse, but revives shouldn't become a standard occurrence. If the death of consumption thing got implemented then it could be changed so that each character would have to get killed off separately and accounts could only be unsubbed when there are no characters left. That way people could get rid of undesired characters without having to sacrifice the ones that were still interesting, they would have to think about them as individuals instead of a mass and there would be time for regretting and canceling.

From a player point of view: maybe the giant X could have a day's delay on actually killing the characters? For this time, the chars are shown as "dying" or somesuch, to allow partners/town members to see the character is dying and get them somewhere secure (for the inevitable dropping of items)?

If the account is revived in that 24 hours, the message is removed.

Just a thought, no idea if it would be workable.

EDIT: This idea is the same as Piscator's in this thread. I came up with it independently, honest! :shock:

Wait, what?

1. No part of this (or the alternative) thread has been moved to implemented.
2. There was no ingame message.

So... what was implemented? :?

I think it's only a preparation, and nothing is in the game yet. But there is a fainting message to be used instead of a death message, and some code that keep events, states and naming instead of deleting them on death.

Oh right, that makes more sense. :)

I just wish you could kill characters individually, with maybe 24 hours to change your mind. There's been a couple of times I think that actually would have saved my account.

Though I like to think this won't be an issue for me personally anymore, I've <i>finally</i> gotten enough willpower to stop creating new characters on a slow day and just stick with a manageable amount. I think.

I think killing characters individually was accepted, it just included so many parts that even reading the list made it seem like a huge project.

Unsubscribing isn't instant anymore, so I'm moving this to implemented :)
