    Someone today posted a thread in the UHall about this: http://community.stratics.com/threads/cc-expires-house-gone-people-dont-return.324458/

    One of our own guild members experienced this last year. Here is what he posted on our forum:
    He quit playing shortly after.

    I suggest that when an account goes inactive that it is displayed on the house sign as when a house decays now. It could say "Vacant" or something similar. This would let everyone know the house could decay in the future.

    Even further, I would like to see a system message when you walk into the home the same way you do now when a house is condemn. It could say something like "This house has fallen into disrepair. If the owner does not return soon it could begin to decay." This would allow friends of the house to contact the owner.
