The accounts listed below have not logged in for anywhere between 1 - 8 years.

The deactivated accounts are still valid at Vrat, they are just “deactivated”, meaning you will not be able to log in. If any member in the list wishes to reactivate/login and participate in the forum, just use the link in your deactivation e-mail or failing that use the contact form here, I will be happy to reactivate your account.

Account Housekeeping; Long Overdue

Note: Please read this

This ticket's purpose is to dispel any rumours, gossip, myths, misinformation or 'Fake News', that may arise, as they often do, from the agenda driven shadows. I've not randomly deleted accounts.

All the above accounts were deactivated purely on the reasons of security or inactivity, nothing else.

These accounts had not seen a login from between 1-8 years ago. Newly installed security requiring the use of strong passwords. Inactive accounts may, and I emphasise may, have insecure passwords and as such might be vulnerable to abuse. All the user accounts deactivated have the option to reactivate if they so wish, thus far only a couple have done so.

  • All (see note below) accounts will have received an e-mail stating the account has been deactivated.
  • Within that e-mail is an option to request reactivation
  • A popup notice appear at login to provide assistance and a link, should folk have trouble logging in.


Note: Some accounts bounced back the deactivation e-mail notification, stating the e-mail was undelivered. This will be due to the e-mail associated with the Vrat account, not kept updated with a valid e-mail address.

This further shows the importance of keeping your account at Radios-TV updated with your current e-mail address. Failure to do so will mean you will be unable to reset your password, receive notifications of privates messages, subscriptions to your content or many other site notices. 

Anyone who did not receive the deactivation notice for that reason and still wishes to log in, can use the contact form to request reactivation.

Advice on login/registration and passwords.

When a member requests reactivation, their status in the above table will be updated and will also be logged below. Upon reactivation a member receives an automated, reactivation e-mail notification.

The deactivated account list had not been updated in over 2-years.

The list is now up-to-date, see post #1 for accurate listing.

As noted in the initial post, these accounts will have been deactivated, due to prolonged inactivity, or for security reasons. Any member on the list can request reactivation.
