I've found an "abandoned" stack on Delicious and want to be the "owner" of it. The owner has been inactive for a long time and I would like to continue their work. Is this possible?

  • would you please elaborate what you mean by abandoned? Is there no owner at all or is it inactive? Commented Jan 7, 2012 at 23:01
  • @user99572isfine: inactive.

As there is no built-in way to contact another Delicious user, it appears that you are out of luck. There is no official way to take over another user's stack.

There are a few things you can try, though:

  1. Search online for the user name. Maybe that person is active on other sites under the same name and can be contacted there.
  2. Copy all the links in a stack to your own stack and continue there. A partially automated how-to has been proposed on Webapps before.
  3. Propose contacting users as a new feature in the support forums.
