i was thinking that perhaps we should clean up the users around here. namely the ones that haven't posted in over a year or the ones that have been members for 6+ months with 0 posts? just a suggestion.
Yes, I'm a supermoderator. I'm not an administrator, but I like to pretend that I am. I have my own little administrator cape that I like to wear while I browse the forums.
Clearning out a database of users is just not done... For a number of reasons:
1. should they have an issue the can come and post without registering.
2. the email address is onfile for sending out newsletters and perhaps marketing.
3. also no one wants to join a forum with 1000 or less users.
certainly all forums have to start somewhere but most users done want to be part of it's begining. If you think about it someone seesthat number and says 'wow they have 20k users this must be the place to join to get help!'
That wouldn't be a bad idea. Then you could just assume they've moved on. But then again, all of the extra names just stay there. No posting by them, they just exist. It's not too much to just have the user exist, is it?
