Author Topic: Old member records pruned

We appreciate your concern.
It is noted and stupid.

Of all the registered members here, only ~110 are active, i.e. have posted in the last month.

I have pruned members away that met one of the following criteria:
  • Registered over six months ago and never posted
  • Registered over a year ago, had 5 or fewer posts, and hasn't posted in six months
  • Registered over two years ago, is not a Senior Member or Oldie, and hasn't posted in a year
We'll be doing this from time to time from here on out. I'd rather have 415 relatively active users than 715 mostly inactive users...

Wow. That's a pretty big cut.

I hope the old standbys like Baloo, Xentrick, Jordan, Jaresh Inyo, and Jedi Weyoun come back soon.

Wey's neck deep in college still.

Haven't heard from Baloo.... [Frown]

Yeah, I can. But I'm going to stick with Topher. [Big Grin]

Jordan's a good guy, but he is a bit sensitive. I haven't heard from him in, like, ages now. Anyway, the last time Jordan was hear, I think he said something about losing the password for his "Jordan" handle. So he re-registered under "Quatre Winner."

Hmm, unfortunate. I had hoped to eventually recover the password to my old registered name simply for the member # prestige. [Smile]

He went off in a huff and responded to inquiring emails with a torrent of abuse, by all accounts. And it wasn't even my fault (I think). 8)

Much like Jordan, RW seemed to have many issues of his own.

I e-mailed Jedi Weyoun some time back, and she was doing well then.

110 out ot 715 = 15.39% [Eek!] Bloody hell! Only 15% are active!

415 out of 715 = 58.04% [Frown] Not quite as bad for the relatively active total, but could no doubt be a lot better.

(Shakes head again at the 15%)

Boss, me thinks you've done a very harsh yet good thing. I guess that means that Darkstar's membership has been deleted. Oh dear, what a shame [Wink] Just don't get rid of me! Please!

Say, with the removal of members, what has happened to their member numbers? Have they been reallocated to the more active members or are you saving them for newcomers?
