Given how "quiet" these forums can be from time to time I'd suggest upping the necropost warning to 60 or 90 days.
I'm in my 50s and started playing in 2000 with my son, when he and a couple of his friends were 6 years old. Ironically they've all long since abandoned EQ but I'm still around. When the Silver account was introduced I found his old account and logged in just to see if his old toon was still there and sure enough it was. But he didn't care; heck I was much more nostalgic about it. Nostalgia is lost on the young, eh? ;)
