i have a idea and i wanted to no how evry 1 thought about it

Maybe we should have a non active member cleanup like maybe deleting evry member tht has posted less the 20 times and hasnt posted in a month cause we have alot of usernames and lots of spaces tht some1 might want but isnt available eventhough tht person has nvr posted.

just a thought want to hear suggestions?

I don't think less than 20 times would work. Some people might only post once a month or two months. Should they be removed for that? Also some people might join and then it could be a while before they really get posting!

I see your point though. We do have around 370 members who have never posted.

And we have several who has done 1 post... like 6 months ago..

BUT... If you are a guest, i'm not shure you can even see the entire forum, and defenetly not post in many topics...

I think its a good idea. If you havent posted in 6 months, you really dont care about abandonia.

Same here. It is a sure thing that by removing all those 0 post wonders some would need to register again, but then if they are really interested in this forum it won't be a big deal for them.

I just can't understand why some people register somewhere if they don't want to post at all.

Wiping all those 0 post users once can't be that bad. Maybe it should be done twice a year, so anyone who never posted and did not post in the past 6 months would get deleted. Everyone who attained a tittle above "newbie spammer" or another higher title, would be exempt of this.

It would be stupid to remove someone with 1000 post after 6 months of innactivity since they already contributed so much to the forum, and might just come back.

Eagle has a point!
There should be a date set - and twice a year someone should check the members out. There are some who never post. REgister for a question or two - and leave.
But there should be an option for them to take their membership back. Let's say they get a warning in their mail accout saying: Your abandonia mombership has expired. If you wish to stay a member of Abandonia (for free off course) just click on this link.
And there should be a confirmation link. If they forgot about Abandonia, or would like to get active again they can, otherwise :bye:

I think that`s the best solution..

Give them a change to become active again and othwerwise delete the account..

Only 1 problem: We almost got 1000 members....after the delete it will be destroyed to 700 :not_ok:

Yeah, I'll see what kind of cleanup options the forum offers! I'll erase anyone who has registered over 2 months ago and hasn't visited since, or anyone who has less than 5 posts and posted over 6 months ago....

Everyone less then 5 posts??

At this point newbies will be kicked also....

Or is it just 5 posts in last 6 months??...then it's ok..

Otherwise it's not fair for the newbies here around k:

I think he means if they didn't post at all in the last six months and they also have less than five posts!
