- Will inactive accounts be deleted?
- If so, what happens to questions and answers made by those accounts?
- What are the criteria for deletion?
For years, 1000 eligible users were culled every day; and for years, far more than 1000 users became eligible on Stack Overflow. By 2017, millions of users were considered inactive but not deleted.
As of May 3, 2017, culling of inactive users is no longer performed; whatever utility this may have once had, we'd likely lost it years before due to the rate-limiting.
