As of July 5, 2008, Evil Empire has updated their rules by deleting members outside the safeguarded groups who have not been active for 60 days, meaning those who do not post within 60 days. All of the members who qualify for deletion are gathered up into a list and possibly deleted indiscriminately by the admins.. Also, there is probably no other way to get back one’s old account other than to create a new one with the same username and start from square one. Since The Evil Empire is amazing with their online sharing community, this is not a big annoyance to most manga/anime/japan enthusiasts.
For those who do not visit the forums that much, one can sign up for a free account at http://iwantsandy.com to send an automated reminder to your email, phone, or pda to remind oneself to post before the Evil Empire account is deleted.
