Remove inactive members!

Hey so I clicked on the memberlist and noticed a high amount of inactive users. Or even better, users who signed up and never visited. I'm sure this takes up space and Clutters the site in some sort of manner. Why not delete them? There are some that registered in 2004 and have not visited since that day. Anyways just a suggestion. I think of it like how a computer saves thumbnails and temp files to fill up the memory on your computer.

Anyone else agree this should be done?

We've talked about this as a staff and it's been determined that there isn't really any benefit to it.

But doesn't every little bit help? I mean there has to be a few hundred inactive members on here. And for the system to memorize each username and password in the coding must take up quite a bit of space.

Jason has been the one to say it's not worth it, so it can't be too bad.

To remove every single inactive member would take hours to do, and save maybe 25 MB of space and no bandwidth. No benefit at all.

Plus, removing inactive members (unless it's only the ones who have never posted) also removes their posts, meaning a lot of good information would get shit-canned.

I say leave it, too much of a hassle with no real accomplishment to be honest. Just a lot of work for Jason and whoever else is helping with it.

I'd much rather see their time and effort put into something else like site upgrade or new things for us members to all enjoy.

I would but I don't have the power.


Besides, dumb questions would also be removed if we deleted inactive members. Best to keep this one alive and well to discourage others. :rofl:

I've never figured out why someone would take the time to register and then never post. :tardbang:

Danny is an originator, he has perma-mod status.
