Zeroes down

Post by Wedge Antilles » Sun Feb 02, 2003 5:35 am

Right, I've been thinking of this for a long time now. Some people, like GreatAdmiralThrawn, Elrond, and Ringbearer, have not posted a single post! And I don't mean just from the new board started, I mean from when they first ever joined! Viper, why don't you delete them or soemthing? If they won't come to make a post, they're not worthy to be here!

Once I get the whole moderator situation behind me, that was going to be one of the first things I did, see if there are any accounts that could be deleted. All in good time I guess. :yoda:

Yeah.... I think this happens on every forum on the internet! At least it makes us feel like we have more members! :)

I will eventually clean out the member list again. It takes a long time so I won't do it that often. Maybe every year to every other year would be good.

It takes a long time? I thought you just select the members you wanna delete and press delete...ah, I think that just might be proboards....

I have to find the people that have zero posts and individually go into there accounts in the admin panel and delete them. Depending on how many people there are, that could take a little while.

Just a suggestion, you can also try emailing the "Zero Post" users to see if:
  • A. They have a valid email address
    B. Their account activation was received in a bulk mail folder
It does add an extra step to the process, but it does help weed out accounts that can never be used. At least that's what we do over on my site. ;)

That sounds like a good plan. And it just might get more people to come back and here and talk too! :)

Those are some good suggestions Emperors_Prize. The members haven't gotten an email in a while. I think I might do that soon.

Although the ones that only have 1-10 posts must have got their activation e-mail. Maybe they forgot this place was here?

Oh, and Emporor's Prize, seeing as my private messages, e-mails, and trying to catch your attention in another post have failed, could you please mail me about your position in SWDE within the next 2 days or your account there will be deleted :) Thankyou
