    Description

      Hi there,

      The Partner raised a ticket asking for some more information about whether activity data(and any other data) is deleted when
      a user account is deleted.

      From a user experience perspective, it would be beneficial to include some additional information on the 'Delete user' confirmation page,
      to ensure the user is happy to make the choice of deleting a user and understanding the implications in doing so.

      Currently the 'Delete user' confirmation page says:

      "Are you absolutely sure you want to completely delete '[user fullname]' ?"

      It's suggested that the page maybe include something like:

      "Are you absolutely sure you want to completely delete '[user fullname]' ?
      All course completion, "list of activities/resources", etc. data will be deleted and is not recoverable. If you wish to retain any data you may wish to consider suspending the user."

      Or words to that effect.

      From some investigation, there is a 'deletecheckfull' language string L481 in 'lang/en/moodle.php' that could be updated.

      This is a small/harmless change that could potentially avoid high cost data loss (even though it would be self-inflicted).

      Kind regards
