    I agree with this. It would make more sense to me to at least hide the account until the person's sixteenth birthday, at which point the person's work would be automatically unhidden again.

    1. I agree, but I think it would make more sense to just lock the account (so the user can't log in) rather then delete or hide their works until the day they turn 16 according to the birthday they provided when making their accounts. Maybe if someone tried to click on the account name or go to that users profile, there could be a note saying that the account is locked until further notice or something along those lines. It would be so awful to lose tons of work on the archive.

      I just realized that for the site to know that a person has turned sixteen, it would have to know their birth date, which is personal data. *facepalm* Man, seems like there's just no way to win, unless the fics are scheduled to automatically unhide sixteen years after the date the user created their account??
