    Correct me if I'm wrong here, but the people who own these OG accounts and usernames have paid for them, correct? In that case, there's no justification for taking those accounts or usernames away from them, even if they have been inactive. "I want a cool username" does not mean you get to take other people's stuff.

    No support from me, sorry.

    Absolutely not. People sometimes take long breaks. For all we know they could be in a coma.

    No, because what if these people come back to minecraft just to have the name that they paid for gone?

    But they paid for the username and it makes no sense for Mojang to just take it away. They own the account, so they can technically do whatever they want with it.

    I'm totally agreed with you. I've been struggling to find an OG name for my account, because onviously, the more OG your name is, the more competent people consider you. 

    Because I couldn't find any good IGNs, I decided to just come up with something myself, and it was the name Vehix. I do get called out for my name being semi og but then again we still want better names. Unfortunately, nowadays, people who have OG names are those who used to play the game but then quit...

    I really hope that Minecraft could look back at this and do something about it.

    Whoa whoa whoa, because you can't find an available OG name doesn't mean that Mojang will rename or even delete OG accounts, you can easily buy them if they come-up for sale so everyone is happy.

    Disagree. Yes, many people with OG accounts are inactive, but that doesn't matter. As people have said, it's their account and they can do whatever they want with it. I guarantee that Mojang will not release these accounts for the public. Firstly, the amount of backlash they'd get from the community would be horrific. It's basically taking away someone's personal property just to make a few others happy. Doesn't seem right to me. 

    Secondly, this won't benefit anyone. If OG accounts were released, within milliseconds they'd be requested and purchased on chearful.ninja. After they've been sniped, then what? Only a few people will be satisfied, and the majority of people get nothing. Not to mention the severe selling and re-selling of the accounts that would happen.

    May I recommend something else, but still similar?
    Instead of deleting them, they should just be locked and can be unlocked when the owner of the account wants to play again.
    And instead of only locking OG accounts, any inactive account (4 years+) should be locked.
