    Consider not removing apps until COVID past

    Hello,

    With several UEYs down either confirmed or presumed COVID, this is going to make apps harder all around. I'd like to propose modification to give good apps more of a chance to rebound.

    I want to suggest we modify ending vote posts due to inactivity to clearly state someone can come back and ask to get the app rebooted. The app could also be left in place, or left at 0/0 vote and moved to NO; something clear that shows the app doesn't have to be over if they want to pursue it.

    My city has people dropping like flies, and no one dealing with an emergency is checking their computer anymore. I can see coming back to see NO votes being pretty discouraging, and some people who might have pursued reinstatement passing it over unless it was crystal clear that returning was "no harm, no foul." It says in the instructions you could come back and explain, so we don't restate it normally. But if folks actually do have an emergency in the family, that point may be lost weeks later.

    Its not a modification to our current system of NOs, but just a clear positive message of reinstatement if the app is pruned. If someone comes back and sees the message, or sees a pruned message with a 0/0 score, or however you want to do it, it will be more likely pursued to be reopened. I'd argue our true drive-by apps won't be bothered to come check their app again. Real applicants might return.

    Could we have officers clearly state in closeout that the app can be reopened if the person returns please?

    It sounds reasonable, at the very least.

    I'd also add, maybe even give the likely hit & runs an extra 2-3 days as well perhaps?

    They say that life's a carousel spinning fast, you've got to ride it well
    The world is full of Kings and Queens who blind your eyes and steal your dreams
    And they'll tell you black is really white, that the moon is just the sun at night
    And when you walk in golden halls you get to keep the gold that falls
    It's Heaven and Hell, oh no!

    Yeah, I'm cool with this. Won't really hurt anything to hold off on inactivity votes for a while, either. I'll just ask people to do that for the time being.

    Mutiny - Is it okay if I call you the artist former known as D.R., Mr. Fuentes?
    Death_Rictus - Except that would require me to be an artist... and I'm not that by even the loosest of definitions.
    Mutiny - No, you are. Your canvas is polygonal artificial intelligence-controlled cops and your paint is their blood.
