You have to treat them as 'new'.

If there has been no activity, have ALL your info to hand when you use them. Avoid changing ANYTHING. This will flag you so quickly

High chance of temporary limits if ebay/paypal think the accounts are hacked.

Avoid listing anything. Search, surf, play.... go slowly.

Keep in mind ebay/paypal are not stupid. They will want to make sure everything is OK

IF you are sure they are good to use (stealth, unlinked)...I would buy and browse for about 3-4 weeks and then sell low-end items, wait for feedback and slowly nurture them back into existence.

Sandy D uses the term "baby"ing the account - think of it like that.

eBay treats accounts that have not been active that long essentially like brand new accounts.

I would basically do the same thing for an account like this as I would a brand new one. Spend some time browsing on the account. Maybe buy one thing. Then start listing some low risk items until you get a some feedback and rebuild some selling history. I prefer to list used jeans or books or dvds. Like to make it look like I am selling some personal stuff.
