in reply to Old, unused nick desired..

What about deleting users that are clearly typos (where another user with VERY similar name was created moments later). I've seen several of those, and unless activity is noticeable, they probably can be deleted :)

    I believe warning might be sent to user's email address with info that 'xxx' nick is going to expire. If no action taken in X days, it'll expire and is free.

    This will clean both inactive monks and typos.

    Then wee need also to consider how to put 'hold' agains nick expiration, if somebody decided to sail around the globe alone without email... : )
