Link Variations

Link Variations PreFace

This section became larger then expected, and ended up on its own page here, this is mostly due to the huge variations in categories that needed to be defined for each possibility. Link variations are often featured on many posts, and might be more common then was initially planned (which was not the original intent of this type of design, but real life can have some really complicated twists and turns).

Some material has more then one category, and that can make this system complicated. Some thought is required to make such material look good in a document.

Link Variations Introduction

Link Variations should be used rarely—but in reality is probably used more often than that. There are many other good methods that don’t distract the reader, or the working environment that may be chosen instead. However, there are times when unusual material needs to be marked.

Link Variations also exist because an edit was done that usually exchanges one link for one that becomes superior, or of greater importance for some reason. Because a lot of work here is used for the basis of tweets, it may not be possible, or wise to not include several links.

Contact-point links might also come in several levels of relevance (it may be multidimensional material), but this should in most instances use other methods as people, or groups don’t fit into the scheme used here, it is more to do with links to material rather then contact points for people.

However some people or groups considered influential by Gharr might get a category, or marker that is more sentimental, then meaningful (and they need not be famous people in the public sphere).

Experimental Link Design Region

There is always some newly defined link (or not related to a link), and that design is worked on in this section (which may change without notice).

  • Gharr is semi-retired, so pondering how twitter should be used.
  • Social media has changed, it seems to try and influence our behavior, and curate information for us. Not sure where all this is heading, but probably not in the free speech direction.
  • Perhaps this new link type will mark a new direction or social media style to match all the changes, and the fact that Gharr is semi-retired.

Historic Names, and Historic Links (such as used by twitter)

A few artists seem to change their name with each new song. Other change names for other mysterious reasons. Often related websites, and other social media may change also as a result. Sometimes old names still have weight, and are recorded as a historic assist to Gharr, and the fans of the link.

Since the links no longer work in most cases, only a name remains, as a vestige of a past time. The classic example is Ravin and Kingdom of Ravin. Crystal however (the new name) is not linked to the old name (which was probably a real name). Perhaps the new stage name is preferred, and there is no reason in that case to bring up the past.

  1. Historic Names, and Historic Links

Links Rearranged and Examined

links may look similar, this section examines some of those issues.

These two are the same on purpose. But one is not a link, it is more like a highlighter

Space Cats
A link that no longer functions

There are a number of highlighter types that look similar to link styles.

These four are of a similar in design, but the last is just a highlighter type. One is now a legacy; it was redesigned so it looked significantly different from the trust type.

Related to link variations or as a highlighter to person or group

  1. Not Related To Links
  2. Always a highlighter, blocked means the link exists to most of the public, but not for you. If they are a famous person, you may still mention them if they are mentioned in some sort of public media, often the news for example.
  3. Blocked, but still respect or like the person (no link is displayed)
  4. The above is very similar to link lost, but owner knows about it, and that is intentional.
  5. Brand change, Re-Branding, Change in Life and Change in Social Media Presence, Re-defining who one is. Some changes may mean that the media will not be suitable for sharing by Gharr however.
  6. Re-Branding: includes brand change, change in life circumstances, change in what the group or person does, re-defining who the group or person is. This is more then just a name change, and continuing to do what was done before. This may include being more internationally focused for example.
  7. A highlighter
  8. Lost Link For Unknown Reasons, but still respect or like the person, also includes deleted accounts. A deleted account is different from an abandoned account, in that it is uncertain for a deleted account if the person, or group is still on social media. If they are still on social media, or discovered to be on social media, then the account is considered abandoned, and not deleted, thus this link style would not apply in such cases.
  9. A highlighter
  10. Special Tribute, No Particular Reason, Just Because…

    1. ⚙ Person Retired: Regret, emotional, or valid personal reasons. Some judgement may be required to determine this. Partial, or full deletes of tweets may occur in such situations. If the person or group changes permanently, it may take time to get to know what they do, and the content they make.
  16. Person Retired/On-Break-From, No Longer On a particular type of Social Media
  17. These are copies, they occur when no link exists. Mostly this will only occur if account is abandoned, but can also occur if the account is put on hold. In effect, this section is just simple highlighters, and this is why copies are placed here.

When a user changes their accounts name, they may unknowingly also abandon thier old account (an automatic process, followers will be re-directed to new name in most cases). If a new twitter account is made, then old follwers will not know about the account change–the old name is still lost if deleted, but may be re-used by someone else eventually.

Expanded Link Variation Descriptions and Code

Links that have an altered color don’t keep their java-script properties. Thus they might easily be overlooked by the reader of an article, or misinterpreted.

May Not Be Related to A Link

This is more like a highlighter in many ways, but may also relate to links. It defines ideas that are like Gharr—generates content, and is mentioned or promoted on the public networks—but is also a new concept and/or idea. Examples are content generated by a person, or using various public content to produce new content.The generated content tends to have periodic updates, or periodic creations that can be used to generated public interest. Examples might be programming, game commentary, select news updates, and board game commentary to name a few examples.

Multi Link Variations

This is similar to a person having several flags IMO. The flag (actual picture), makes the multi link variation more symolic, a desirable thing if mentioned in several places, and the owner wants a edit to the note.

Re-Branding: includes brand change, change in life circumstances, change in what the group or person does, re-defining who the group or person is.

This can occur if a person has one or more avatars, monitoring of the internet might make it harder for them to be who they want to be, so they abandon some avatars in response to that, and some of thier freedom to be whoever they want to be.

Person Retired/On-Break-From, No Longer On a particular type of Social Media

Often the person, or group is still on social media (in a public, or known way), but has dropped using one or more previously used social media channels. The person, or group’s remaining social media may be taking time out also, but the links still work—the person has not fully retired from social media. These are marked simply because fans may think this media still exists.

Person in Hiatus, Taking a break, changing what they do, re-branding, working on new directions, a state of change, but still on social media with possibly varied settings

A person or group that comes back from Hiatus, etc has a normal link (unless special conditions occur), as they are considered active on social media again.

Person/Group announces break from media for a set time or unspecified amount of time.

Person/Group mentions that they will be on a break for a set period of time, or unspecified amount of time. They may hint at the reason. This flagged, or highlighted text is normally not placed at the link, but rather next to it (which is not normally the case here). It is removed at some later appropriate time. Normally only popular links will get this marker, as it is a high maintenance symbol. It is probably only found rarely in documents. The word Hiatus can be used here, if no specific time span, or no-reasons for the break is mentioned. As shown here: normally the span of the break is put inside the marker, but the exact reasons for the break does not need to be mentioned.

It can be used as simply a highlighter, or with the link itself (but a note marker is usually attached). The time spans don’t need high degrees of accuracy.

Person, or group takes time out for unknown reasons (Also Abandoned Account)

Some people, or groups announce what they are going to do, but don’t necessarily give reasons for what they do. Others may simply take a break unexpectedly. Still others may have changes in their lives because they get older, or the organization reaches another level. Sometimes a change in a countries, or regions politics can also result in an absence—it’s not always easy to figure out the actual true reasons. This includes abandoned accounts: Some people chage twitter accounts without notifying the current followers… perhaps to make a fresh start, or to meet new followers.

Historic (Possibly Famous) Person that is now dead: Quotes, extracts from the media this person produced, snippets of historic records about person.

This would might include a link. When promoting Carrie Fisher’s books, a link is not used in that case.

Historic The social media account is owned or managed by someone else.

On social media like twitter, changing your user name will result in your old user name being available for other people to use. If care is not taken, then it can throw your followers into total confusion, who may still have existing hard-coded hyper-links to the old account.

Artists, groups, and people have changed their handle or account-names, but records of such changes are not always recorded here, other then through a marker on the current-link, as a reminder that if older material is still around, it should be changed.

The reason this option is available, is for fans, or contacts that still have some attachment, or memory of the old account.

This is simply a highlighter, since the current-link has no relationship to the historic meaning. Notes are usually attached to explain that “this site name was once used by…” for example.

Historic: The social media account is owned or managed by someone else.

  • The account may or may not do the same things as it did before the change of social media owners.

<span style="color: #000088; border-bottom: 2px solid #747400; border-top: 2px solid #747400; background-color: #e8ffe8;">Historic: The social media account is owned or managed by someone else.</span>

Person Died, but still respect or like who the person was, the persons social media account has disappeared.

In 2017 Carrie Fisher’s twitter account still existed. Possibly so fans, and family could make meaningful mentions of her. Thus, this is just an example, hyper-links would not exist, so none are made:

In Memory of Carrie Fisher AKA @carrieffisher ❀

<span style="color: #747400; border-bottom: 2px solid #909090; border-top: 2px solid #909090; background-color: #000000;">❀ In Memory of Carrie Fisher AKA @carrieffisher ❀</span>

Person Died, but still respect or like who the person was… the social media is updated by family or fans in memory of; a social media search link to see what people are saying about the person; or special social media accounts have been made to pay tribute to the memory of the person.

This is an example (where a twitter search for mentions of Carrie Fisher’s twitter account are made).

In Memory of Carrie Fisher ❀</span>

<span style="color: #747400; border-bottom: 2px solid #747400; border-top: 2px solid #747400; background-color: #000088;">❀ In Memory of Carrie Fisher ❀</span>

Person Died, but the account is on hold or frozen, possibly so if fans mentions the person, then those mentions would still have some meaning on social media.

In Memory of Carrie Fisher AKA @carrieffisher

<span style="color: #747400; border-bottom: 2px solid #0000cc; border-top: 2px solid #0000cc; background-color: #000000;">❀ In Memory of Carrie Fisher AKA @carrieffisher ❀</span>

Account Deleted, by user.

The account has been retired by the user

The Account is not viewable by the general public. 1) The account was followed Gharr, and was public; it was then made private, and Gharr (and possibly many other followers) were blocked during that process, so the material can only be seen by a very selected audience, that has been determined by the user. 2) In most cases a private account followed Gharr.

Fits in well with low-priority pre-made content, developed in this style manual. It’s rare for this marker to have attached comments. Greyed out text when related to shared pre-made content, can mean that it is not a priority share, or to can be shared more rarely. This low share priority does not apply to the older posts style, that have video pictures, with shortened links attached below them.

The Account is not viewable by the general public.

<span style="color: #888888; border-bottom: 1px solid #CCCCCC; border-top: 1px solid #CCCCCC; background-color: #eeeeee;">The Account is not viewable by the general public.</span>

This is very near to the look of the Admin Content of Interes marker:

Administrator’s General Link Content of Interest Marker

In some cases the Admin Content of interest marker, might be used instead. It can not be known what goes on behind the wall of a private account, but sometimes a note might be attached using the Admin Content of Interest marker, to make note the account might have been run by a well known person, before it was made private.

The Account is not viewable by the general public. It has been made private, or encrypted for example. Gharr followed the account before it was made private, and by default is able to see such tweets, or material. Gharr does not share such tweets, as they can’t be used by the general public, but can still see, and read them.

How other types of social media handle the shift from public to private, and what happens to existing followers by default might need to be read, to determine what exactly happens by default.

This style is very similar to the taking a break, or hiatus markers, so it’s unlikely that the meaning of this marker will be misinterpreted. Some accounts do shift back and forth between public, and private modes. The accounts might do that if they are taking an unexpected break from media, are re-assessing things, or taking a vacation for example.

The Account is not viewable by the general public, but can be seen by Gharr.

<span style="color: #857cab; border-bottom: 1px solid #cccccc; border-top: 1px solid #CCCCCC; background-color: #eeeeee;">The Account is not viewable by the general public, but can be seen by Gharr.</span>

A very similar marker is the Admin Content of Interest marker:

Administrator’s General Link Content of Interest Marker

In some cases the Admin Content of interest marker, might be used instead, as there might be the odd occasion where Gharr follows a private account that is not shareable because it has interesting information (if shared: referenced by not referring directly to source, but rather to the primary source, for example), or enjoyable to read. In general the information from these accounts should not be shared directly, or indirectly, because it risks making private content public, and in turn accidentally doxing the user, something that must be avoided at all costs.

Content Outside the General Viewing Policy of Gharr Marker

Special Sharing Conditions Marker

Both of the above markers may also be used with private accounts, it they are also readable. The two above markers tend to stick out more then the designated marker, and that makes accidental sharing of information even more unlikely: especially where pre-made tweets exist for example.

Social media that contains mixed private and public posts, generally mark such material in some way, and use sharing controls, to enforce the divisions in function, of how such material can be shared, so the user does not need to be puzzled by it, or make unnecessary mistakes.

Link Properties

1A) The link no longer functions, and the owner knows about it, and will get around to doing something about it in good time.

Some links don’t function by design in certain regions (the owner may or may not understand why as third parties may be involved); restricted regions is a product, or service supply strategy rather then a error. This altered color link (without javascript) is not to be used for that case, personal attention, and specific notes are needed in such cases; often the notes are greyed out to avoid major attention from the reader, and to prevent disruption in flow.

For handling a twitter block from a well liked person (deletion of all trace of them is the first avenue), that you may have got along with well in the past, this might be a polite way to remember them: 🐱 Space Cat Girl The name has been altered, since the person has been known for a very long time, and the title is polite, but has light links to who they presented themselves as on twitter.

This is an example of how Celestial Elf whose account ceased to exist, along with a video about The Venus Project (connected event?). Comments and greyed out material were used, since a lot of material about him existed here already.

The block by space cat, and the disappearance of Celestial Elf’s twitter account (and deletion of The Venus Project video made by him) happened around the same time, so perhaps there is some link between the three events (but from my understanding, they also live in two different countries). really too much to speculate on. IMO tags or edits like the above examples should only be done after a cool down time, so it is more a respectful thing, rather then a shoot from the hip shortly after the event. After all both people are influential, and easy to like.

Notice that “youtu dot be/R-udEFNvihw” has replaced the URL, or hyperlink, and that the link has not been simply broken as is often done here. This is because it is undesirable for the users to copy and past the link into thier own browsers. Such Insecure/Risky link variations always come with an explanatory note that is in red. The code for the red color is shown below, but it is acceptable to use this red color for the note as well: The code for color: <span style="color: #770333;">this red color for the note as well.</span>

Generally sucy insecure/risky links are deleted, but for links that seem popular (and it is doubtful that youtube would ever get one) such as Wiki Words dot Org, they may be left in for historical or political purposes. The history and archives of the internet is something that should not be selectivly (by functionality, politics, or for personal reasons) erased or manipulated.

Historic sites like Wiki Words dot Org could have an interesting back story: “An open dictionary built by translators. A collaborative project to create a dictionary of all terms in all languages.”Also strong profit motives can often use various techniques to sideline what might be seen as competing technologies that are free, to enable a users-pay system. It’s an exciting story about the history of the internet that is worth keeping IMO, and some clues left behind here on historic links might help build such historic references. The global community is also about working to understand our history, and choices we make, and might sill have in our future.

2D.3) It’s unclear, at a certain moment of time, as to who owns the account.

This realates to twitter people changing their user names, releasing thier old names for other people to use. Unfortunately, this can lead to people with hard coded hyperlinks to be thrown into confusion. People also release social media accounts for various reasons, and if that name is taken over by someone else, a similar uncertainty can occur. Sometimes management will take over the functioning of an account. In the end there could be a lot of reasons why an account changes ownership, or its behaviour.

1B) A new link is available, and the old link has been deleted. This usually occurs when a group chooses or designs a new primary social media—such as a website, but may also happen when a group chooses to use a new social media link as the primary (the previous link becomes secondary, or demoted in some way). Usually the primary will have links to all the other social media

1B.1) New primary social media account, re-discovering the account.

When a totally new primary social media account pops up, it may be uncertain who actually owns and runs that account. The cog ⚙, represents a period of re-discovery that might be required.

⚙ New primary social media account, resembles the previous social media account in some ways: re-discovering the account, and who really owns it.

2B) The user changes the primary social media account to a new name, but it still does the same thing. A new link is required to access old material (that once existed at the old website/social-media). People with SoundCloud or YouTube may do this for various reasons. Twitter users may also change their name (a sort of re-branding) and that means old links to old name may no longer function.

2B.1) ⚙ New account name, that resembles the older account, re-discovering the account, and who really owns it.

It’s possible in twitter to change the user name, leaving the old user named account to be available for someone else. It should be easy to tell, as you are still following the new account. However, this simple fact may not be so easy to actually spot in some instances. Sometimes a new account is taken over, or sold, then it is re-named, and re-branded, but you are still following that account because of the previous owner. With other types of social media, this difficulty of telling who the new owner is, can also be a problem.

5C) Generally Large Official Organizations

a) Links to official groups where links might not function in the long term. Official groups maintain large websites that may change, so it’s a good idea too check the link so the material is where it is expected. The Venus Project for example often changes material content, and where it is located, resulting in links that no longer work. The Venus Project doesn’t need this link category, as the issue is well known.

b) Links to small-groups that change material, or locations of material often.

c) Links to musicians sites that often change/delete material. For popular musicians and producers, the TransientΔlink method is preferred however.

Link Content, & Conditions

Highlighters that are more like a marker indicating something. Information can be tagged in other ways: such as grey out material, or mark material as instructions. So markers are not the answer to all possible things.

1D) Information and Calculations

a) Links leading to calculations, formula, thoughts, concepts, ideas of interest that may take quite some time to understand, but might be easily read if used for revision. This is just a marker that clarifies links that might not be visited often. most articles don’t need this marker as the body or reference section makes it clear that the material might take time to understand.

b) Useful packages of information that are instructional, or may take some time to use, or read. See point 4D for informational products such as maps, auto-updating data (visual, or numerical for example).

Sharing information that is quite complex, or difficult to read in a short time is generally not done, unless it is to share an album (not related to this section). The best way to handle this style of information is to set it aside by using borders, and/or style. It can also be placed in the end matter. On the occasions that it considered sharable material, it will not necessarily need this tag it may be well known: Michel Bauwens who supports the Commons Transition Plan (P2P Foundation) is well known to produce detailed media that can take a long time to read, so there is no need to use this tag—he’s a trusted source of complex information also. Wiki is another source that may contained complex information, but for non cutting-edge, or non-mainstream topics is more or less a trusted source of sharable information, and does not need this marker.

Other articles by their nature also imply detailed packages of information, and may not need a marker.

However there are many trusted sources of complex information that may be shared less often, and they might benefit from this tag. Also links like this might be worth checking, as in the long term such sites might change owners and information content.

Some articles may also be generalized and not specifically aimed for the information shared, and thus some searching through the article is required to find the required information.

Some groups go for the pay model, initially displaying information, and then supplying a brief introduction with access only to paid members for the full article—such articles may be marked also.

3D.1) Special Conditions: Requests, Impressions, Surrounding Material

a) Frictional: the owner has requested special conditions, or the share is generalized for a reason (as an example). Some owners request specific links be shared (this is often related to promotional considerations), or to boost search engine ranking for example.

b) Impression: a guess at how the owner or producer wants the material shared. Normally shares are done in a standard way, but occasionally non standard styles do occur, and sometimes there is a good reason for it.

c) Surrounding material: The material surrounding this, indicates how it should be shared, or makes the share of another type of rating, or may fall into category “4C—The link may contain [surrounding] material that is outside general viewing guidelines used by Gharr, or may have [surrounding] material that might be distressing, or controversial for some reasons. Surrounding material may also include links to category 4C material, a difficult one to determine as linked to page, may have further links, and so on. Point 3D.1.e gives the details on how to handle such discovered materials… since they may have built up a fan base.

d) Not all material is marked, the control on how it is shared is dependent on where the material is placed, decoration, or related instructional text for example. This is preferable when possible, as editing is easier. Material that is over an our long for example is marked in a certain way, so sharing occurs smoothly.

e) Deleting Discovered Unsuitable Materials, and The Fan Base Considerations: Gharr had a general policy of not linking, or displaying material that is outside the viewing guidelines of Gharr, and such material should be deleted if discovered in most cases. The exceptions would be mild cross overs to the viewing guidelines for Gharr. There is a grey line with everything it seems, and the occasional exceptions are made. Since such material may have built up a fan base, notes may be left to explain the material has been deleted: Note: This material has been deleted because it was outside the viewing guidelines of Gharr. There may be further explanations added, for example the site may have added unsuitable surrounding advertising, or modified the material in some way to make it unsuitable.

5D) Controversial, Confusing, Misleading Possibly; but still contains interesting materials. A category marker is used if the material is outside general audience guidelines.

a) A group has named itself using words like Resource Based Economy, or The Venus Project, or near variants that imply they belong to The Venus Project: but may not support core values, and/or may cause confusion with people investigating, or supporting The Venus Project. The Zeitgeist Movement could be classed as this, but in general, most people know they split from The Venus Project, and pursue their own version of a Resource Based Economy, but may also still support The Venus Project.

Care should be used when sharing information from such groups, to avoid confusion if possible. Those groups might still produce interesting stuff.

B) May also be used for general groups or individuals that could possibly cause confusion because of the way they are named, the marker would then indicate that hesitation to share is not a bad thing in this case.

6D) TRUST. Media that might cause hesitation, as it seems controversial, different, or difficult for some reason. The group produces good material, or has a good reputation for some reason, and sharing the media is encouraged whenever possible. Often over time it is easy to forget the relationships, or research that caused a level of trust to occur, and this marker might help smooth things out in such events.

Trust develops over time, so initially other methods may be used to get to know the organization: including notes about the organization, observing public communications, studying media provided, how the organization communicates with other people and groups, and subtle things like interpretations in various ways of art, communications, interactions. Also the groups the organization hags out with may give some indications of the organizations directions. So markers, and categories should not be used in the early stages of a relationship—as it can be easy to get it wrong.

New User Names, New Main or Core Social Accounts, Abandoned Accounts, Accounts On Hold, and Temporary Accounts

Introduction

This section does refer to the general account for social media.

However what initially sparked this creative work, was the fact that if you change your user name in twitter, the old account name is available for other to use.

While that statement seems quite simple, to other users with hard coded links, many social media contacts, and not knowing exactly what is going on, causes a lot of possible complications that need to be taken into account. Whilt that has been done, it may not be clear above, as to how that process was carried out.

The below logic tree is the one used to design the link variations. It was decided that the new links should have a relationship to existing link variations, so a lot of them either use existing material, or look very similar to link variations that might do a very similar thing.

The next section also uses a newly developed (July 2018) footnoting system.

Logic Tree (in list form) for New User Names, New Main or Core Social Accounts, Abandoned Accounts, Accounts On Hold, and Temporary Accounts

According to twitter you can change your user name.

Some web-sites suggest it is best to keep the old account; to sort of to put your old account name on-hold, when you choose to create a new account: rather then just changing your user account since “once you’ve changed your username, it returns to general circulation and may be selected by another account.” Famous people might be concerned that people might impersonate them on their old lost-account, and possibly also engage in some abusive, or illegal activity.

Twitter use to have information on how many accounts you can have, but this changed in 2018 as they purged automated, fake, for-sale-followers, and what they call “suspicious accounts.

For famous people, some articles suggest keeping the old account, so if people link, or go to that account, you can explain that you have changed your account user name. For the moment, twitter is not interested in discussing this method of changing your user name.

Since Brian Lee Robinson changed his user name before twitter started purging accounts, he probably followed existing older guidelines, and kept his old account active, but on-hold. He then created a new twitter account to use. It’s uncertain—under the current circumstances, with twitter purging accounts in 2018—how long he can keep that older-account in a on-hold-state.

This is of course an assumption of what he did… the above, older account could potentially have been claimed by someone else, and the account appears to impersonate him for the moment. From Gharr’s stand point, having links to the older accounts, because links are used, makes such older accounts quite risky, and always suspect to some degree. It’s also possible that fans may have copied that link, and are in the same boat as Gharr is on this issue. An uncontrolled older account can also muddy the name of the original owner, which is quite counter to all the efforts Gharr makes to promote such people and groups.

Twitter seems to not have really handled this well, and puts the “star,” Gharr, and fans at risk, if instructions of changing the user name is simply followed, and the older account name is selected by another account.

Feel that there are a few states that such old accounts can be in. The link systemΔ can be used here to reduce the risk for Gharr, and help out any fans. Deleting the old link is a possibility also. But if deleted, a note can be left behind to explain things…

  1. Deleted account names, may eventually get owned by others….
  2. The account has been retired by the user (but is on hold, or no longer used, a ghost twitter town if you like). Some famous people might find a way to do this. If the letters of this link-style turns gold (also near olive color), then the user has died.
  3. The account is abandoned by the user (this happens automatically when the user changes their user name). Possibly a really bad move if the person is famous. Read on, as this situation, makes it very difficult to tell what is going on. You won’t know what is going on, as no one is there to tell you about it.
  4. ⚙ If you are following a new account, and it resembles the old one , then there is a very good chance that old one has been deleted or abandoned . Unless managers have taken over the new account, the behavior of the account, or the content will give away the functional aspects of who really owns it. The cog symbol ⚙ represents the fact that you are still discovering who really owns, and runs the newly named social media, that is of the same type as the old one.
  5. You may find out that there is a ⚙ new account on some other social media , as some users for example don’t get Twitter how works for example, and abandon , or delete their accounts. However if they neglected to make this clear that they have moved to this new social media, in the many media products they have made, there can remain a degree of ⚠ confusion about who actually owns the new social media account. The cog ⚙ above for the old media account represents the fact that you are re-discovering the account, and who really owns it. If they do tell you that they have abandoned the old social media account, it may be considered a partial retirement from social media. The new social media would get a normal link variation, based on what the owner says about it.
  6. Some users try and delete the old account, and then make a new account. In most cases this is a safe assumption to make. If they don’t mention that they deleted the old account, you won’t know why the link was lost.
  7. If account is uncertain, it may be because of several reasons
    1. ⚠ may lack the verified symbol §. links can be broken by replacing the full stop with the word dot.
    2. ⚠ may be suspended #, locked, or limited
    3. ⚠ may act in an unusual way
      1. ⚙ People, and groups do get into strife, and may ask for help… there is a point when an account behavior, might reflect a valid change in the owners, or groups condition. Even if that change is only temporary.
      2. ⚙ Peoples partners also may have situations, that affects the owner, or owners of an account. In real life, things are often much more complex
    4. ⚠ the account is inactive, but appears not to have things like bad links , all the tweets that were once there deleted, or tweets are regularly deleted.
      1. this is also something that is up to a degree of judgement, as people can tweet things they⚙ regret, or just get emotional and delete everything, or sections of tweets.
      2. people can have ⚙ various valid personal reasons for deleting all, or some of their tweets. They might not want to reveal all their health issues, or personal problems for example.
      3. in a functional way, a user might keep the account at a low number of tweets, so it is easy to manage, and read–closer to a website if you like, and this is not only a valid alternative interpretation of Twitter, the account operates functionally differently from most other Twitter accounts. ⚙ Some people just change the way they interact with social media.
    5. Some accounts of famous people are taken over by managment groups that work for the person, or whome the person works for. Some stars join a sort of umbrella group, that might manage many potential stars (it’s often clear if this is the case, as such umbrella management groups tend to plug the other stars that are members of thier group).
      1. Historic: there may be a clear statement that the account is managed.
      2. ⚙ the management controls the account, but make out as if the star is managing it.
      3. to an outsider, it might be very unclear as to how managed an account is, and how free a star is to say whatever they want.
      4. ⚙ Independent stars, may be in control of their media, but have very little time to manage it, so hire people to do it for them.
    6. ⚠ It may be very unclear, at a certain moment of time, when the account is checked, as to who owns the account.
  8. The owner of the account clearly states that the account is no longer owned by them.
  9. Historic: It may be obvious that the account is owned by someone else . The new person, or group may have changed the profile picture, short bio, and tweet very differently. It does no harm to mention the history of the link, and a little about the new owners (unless thier material is outside the guidelines set by Gharr: breaking the link is a good option in that case).
  10. Some retirements of accounts are very unclear, vague connections to news, or related social media accounts might give away that some tragic, or major event has caused the social media to become inactive, or be abandoned, or even be deleted. The retired link tags can be used for this in most instances.
