I think it would be a good idea to tie a Marketplace Item to the users last log in. If they stop visiting for a year then their listing goes bye bye.

There are a lot of Dead Items in the Marketplace.

Right now if you view all, and sort by price. That person only logged in long enough to list the "game" and hasn't been back in 4 years.

BGG is never going to get anything from these listings, and all it does is pollute the Marketplace making is a daunting place to shop.

It doesn't matter if someone logs in to BGG or not because marketplace transactions get sent to their actual email. Who's to say they won't respond just because they don't frequent the site?

I do agree something should be done about trades however.

Yes it does. IF you haven't checked in in 4 years I doubt that game is still available. And clearly after 4 years your asking to much if its still there.
