bump.

It should be noted that an OceanMaster has informed us that coinscribing does not protect your account from purging. Only purchases with real $ are guaranteed to protect an account from purging should the account go dormant.


Posts above about purge protection are all incorrect. Including, it seems, /gift subscriptions and box edition purchases.

In that case, the workaround is to doubscribe on an alt, and /gift it over to your main. I just checked an account that was gifted years ago and it still has pirates on it. (I am curious about whether it's a bug creeping in, because the other methods listed were all tested and confirmed.)

I don't see how that will help, when Galene was quite clear:
 
Only purchases with real $ are guaranteed to protect an account from purging should the account go dormant.


/gift does not use real $, so how does the extra step guarantee something an OM did not? Your anecdote is not a guarantee from Three Rings.

My account is /gifted and I'm fairly sure it is purge protected (after a long break I got a warning email for my second account but never for that one).

All you know is that it has worked for you so far.

There are a handful of things that may or may not, at any given time, avoid the pirate purger, but the only thing we actually guarantee protects an account from being purged for inactivity is a purchase with real money.

Relying on anything other than that is done at your own risk.
