    Re: weeding out members that never really existed

    well its not about people posting its more like people creating accounts and not using them at all, there are alot of place out there that if u leave your account for more then 6 mounths untouched they delete it unless u inform a mod that u will not be loging in for such and such period of time

    If you can still login to it and want to use it instead of the new account, I can delete the new account.

Leave people alone, let them use the board the way they want. If people feel the need to contribute, they can.

    Agreed. Just because people dont post that doesnt mean they arent active on the board. The only way to "effectively" prune people would be by date visited. Not everyone feels they have to create a new thread 6 times a day, most of which have been gone over time and time again. Before you know it some people have created 218 new threads in a little over a year.

    Heres an idea lets prune out people who dont post AND people who over post/cant search either

    Move along folks nothing to see here

    Even that wouldn't necessarily work. People who visit infreqently probably don't log in unless they need to post so they just show up as guest when they are viewing pages. There is no way to log when these people are viewing as guest and associate that with there username unless we assume they always have the same IP and I'm not even sure the board software would allow you to use IP's instead of Usernames to show last date visited.

    Re: weeding out members that never really existed

    also remember that there are a "few" that are off in Iraq or wherever not able to get online or post that often because of those circumstances.... I have had a few times where I have not been here for over a month, sometimes business gets real busy and I don't have the time to post---or even lurk for that matter.

    Red face Re: weeding out members that never really existed

    I have not posted because I always was fascinated by all of your technical expertise and didn't want to open my mouth to remove all doubt that I'm an idiot. I am the "other half" of another ID on this site. Originally, I started in AutomotiveForums.com and joined 3geez -- you have my join year as 2003 but I was on the other forum from before that. I found my password!! OK, so it took me from my last visit in 4/2004; but at least now I can use it. I see that for not logging in for over 2 years, I have 233,135 new posts to read! (I'll just mark them read, if you don't mind...). There are different reasons for not posting and I'm not trippin' over the idea of doing a database cleansing of IDs that haven't logged in in a LONG time or of IDs that have never posted; but there are some people who haven't done much with this site but are still interested in it. Well, peace!

    and
    I have found a couple sections of 3geez that is much more exciting than the members list...
    what would that be?

    and also...
    the actual database table that stores all of the members' info uses an extremely small percentage of the total database size.
    if it uses so less, why delete them? i know it would be harder to find someone, but it makes the site look bigger than what it is :P

    I don't delete any fully registered users whatsoever, unless requested by that user. The only reason I prune the users as described in Post #9 is because the Restricted usergroup they are in gets too big for my liking. These are not fully registered users.
