    One of my RL friends canceled her subscription 2 years ago.. her house is still there... only thing I can see in the house that usually is not in other houses is an old guildstone... anyone else seen this?

    It's a glitch. Sometimes they just don't. I have heard this has happened when people take advantage of the "welcome back to brit" program.

    I have a friend who cancelled her account over two years ago who has a castle still standing. This spring I cancelled an account and almost 90 days on the dot the house fell. Go figure.

    Im just wondering on your friends house sign does it show the owner of the house
    name ....
    owner ....
    private
    or is it like this
    name ....
    private
    I see alot of houses like this, but those might be banned houses from years ago

    The sign was like it should be.
    Anyways I called her up, cause I thought she might still be playing since the house was there but no... I checked the details on the account page (Got her login information) and the account was canceled over 2 years ago.

    four houses in a row, all built with this "welcome back" program, purely as deco for the neighborhood with nothing in them, accounts long gone and houses still standing.... the builder laughed when I told him about them
