Are there rules about going inactive often?


Lately, I’m suffering a lot more from mental issues.

It means I want to go inactive, but I already was inactive a while ago.
Are there rules about this? Or can I just go inactive a lot?

Don’t worry to people that drew my address, I will register cards as soon as I get them, but I don’t want to get overwhelmed at the moment. I realized after drawing new addresses that I’m not doing good at all. I will write them however today, but after that I think I want some rest in my head.

Today is a dark day I think.


As far as I know there are no rules about how often or how long going inactive.

Get well soon, and bright days for you.


As long as you register the cards that are already on the way to you, there’s no problem. I hope you feel better soon, and that the cards on their way to you give you a smile when they arrive.


You can be inactive as often as you want, so don’t worry about it. I hope you feel better soon or later.

Hi there, People can go inactive anytime they want to or need to! I hope you feel better soon.

Here’s a quote that I emailed to myself last night that seems timely:

No darkness lasts forever. And even there, there are stars. -Ursula K Le Guin


I don’t want to receive a lot of cards at once so I’m always inactive unless 2 minutes every now and then when I want to get some cards. I’ve been doing this since May and haven’t had any problems. :blush:


I went inactive a month ago and I love it. It’s the first time I’ve done this. I’m sending cards but I don’t have the energy or time to register cards right now.

If you ever want to chat send me a PM, I hope you feel better soon.

@nnniiina so you become active for only 2 minutes? And how cards do you get for that brief period of time?


Usually something between 2 and 6 cards are sent during that time. One day there were sent 14 cards but I’m not sure did I leave my status active for longer time then or not…
Once I forgot my status active for half an hour and got 37 cards sent on that day. :sweat_smile:


How does this inactive thing actually work?

Let’s say for example I keep wanting to send five cards a week but I don’t want to receive any.

Let’s say 4 months down the line I changed my mind. So do I received all the cards that are due to me at once or how does this work?

After the first lockdown I stop sending cards but I did register in a card that came but I wasn’t sending anything. They were cards that got held up when all postage was cancelled.

I think like Facebook, you can activate/deactivate your account as you choose.

Yes you do, according to my experience. Last year I was inactive for 6 months and was due 50 cards. I received 62 cards sent on the day I turned my profile active again.
Sorry for answering even though you didn’t ask from me. :see_no_evil:


@nnniiina thank you :relieved:

Thank you for answering this question. I’ve never activated my account after I’ve been inactive, so I was curious too. @lastIrishman if you don’t want to receive all due cards at the same time, I think you need to do like @nnniiina and only become active for 2 minutes at a time until you catch up.
