Suspension after username


#1

I suspended an account of user so username will be available for registration or not?


#2

No, when you suspend a user their username is left behind so they can’t sign up again.


#3

what can be doen to make that username available again as suspension doen on request not on doing something wrong


#4

Can you answer its kind of important


#5

There is no way to just passively make the username available again. However tootctl accounts create USERNAME --reattach --force --email=EMAIL allows you to create a new account with the same username.


#6

Thanks that will do the magic. is there any way to delete account rather than suspending?


#7

Usernames always remain reserved.

However, to “delete” rather than “suspend” a user (emulating the user’s own “delete my account” function), you can use tootctl accounts delete USERNAME


#8

for the record, I want to say that I don’t recommend using these functions, since they can cause the new user to show up as the old user to some remote servers, and generally can cause bad interactions with federation


#9

What if i used tootctl accounts delete USERNAME delete the user rather than suspension. that would not create an issue right?
