I have an older, now inactive account. How long are these kept around in the DB before CCP finally deletes the toon?

I'm not sure if I should just sell the toon or hold on if I need my alt back, but I would like to know if there is an expiration date.

Thanks.

Every day in every way I improve my skills and get better.

Tell someone you love them today, because life is short. But scream it at them in Esperanto, because life is also terrifying and confusing.

This was way too helpful. Pretend it irritated you.

Since the cessation of their usefulness is imminent, may I appropriate your belongings?

I am not sure why would CCP ever delete Toon. Anyway, you can't sell a solar system. (Well, if you think you can convince someone to buy it from you, good luck.)

^ In a nutshell that's the correct answer. So far CCP hasn't deleted an inactive character, from the database afawk.

These are not the toons you are looking for, play some more hello kitty online or something the grownups are talking.

Toons srssly, what are you 9 years old?

there's no reason to underline "character" as the previously posted link states no inactive accounts have been deleted either.

CCP were able to find and reactivate my trial account from 2007.
