i cant agree to that.
imo it makes totally sense to keep this forum up. i learned many important things here.
and zero post members are in every forum. ok there are many here ... but there are still 1000 active members here.

lol, i thought this was gonna be about my spam Razz , anyways the people who aren't posting are probably the 11 year olds who are too shy to post and too afraid to post the wrong things. They probably found out about the game, found this forum, and registered to see the cheats.

Another thing is maybe they registered only for reading "cheats and scripts" or "tips and tricks" section. As we all knows, these section can only be read by members, not guest.

That's just a spammer. There's a big difference, but both are unwanted.

I understand what you are saying NZ

Seems like numerous people join then never post or only post once or twice.

I think that eventually BTB and Lumi might work to get some of that cleaned up.....

I could but I don't see why that would really matter? Those numbers really don't effect the forum in any way.

True, but it's cleaner when you see X amount of members registered and see the same amount (Or close) posting actively.

But thats never going to happen.

As long as the cheats and tips section are members only .... I'd expect this place to always have a silent majority. Join, get the info from that bit, if you find/understand everything you need ..... never post.

Can't really see that it make s great deal of a difference what the size of the member database is TBH.

Put the email activation back on and use the announcement bar at the top of the forum for competitions like SOTW ect, send an Email warning to all 0 posted members that are older than 1 month and if they dont post after 1 week then delete all previous accounts.
That is if you know how to do all that :)

Did you read my post on the last page?

They're not doing any harm, so who cares ...... despite what you seem to think, you can't "force" people to be active on a forum.

You can remove the unused members, other potentially active members may want those names, also incase you didnt know the more users the slower a forum loads pages, you would only have to do this like once every 3 months..

Oh, no.. You are wrong imo...
I hope you've read the FAQ

FAQ wrote:
It is usual for boards to periodically remove users who have not posted anything so as to reduce the size of the database.
The Database means to be somekind of Harddrive in PC.... The more files in it, The slower the PC....
So database does...

Well in that case, something should be done sooner or later.

If the DB gets huge then yes, you may encounter performance issues.

But 6,000 is not an especially large database.

Can anyone here (who has been here since day 1 or thereabouts) honestly say they have noticed any visible decline in performance as the user base has increased? I've been here 3 months and I can't say it seems to perform any better or worse than it ever did.

Used names? Yeah ... I guess so .... not what I consider to be a huge issue though.

I may tidy it up over the weekend at some point I guess but I don't think it's something we need to "worry" about ..... as long as the board is performing for you, the user, why would you care how many members have zero posts?

Acctually I have been here since day 2 or three and yes I have noticed a decline in speed, infact my internet speed has increased yet the forum has just gotten slower.
Like I said just go into the admin cp send a warning email to all users that are over 1 month old with zero or 1 posts and then after 1 week those who have not posted anymore can be deleted.
Also you acctually do need a new skin, this current skin has been broken and honestly looks horrible.
You want your forum to look nice and tidy even if it gets a new simple skin it does need to look alot tidyer as it attracts more members.

This is one of the faster boards I frequent.

If speed was a serious issue, removing sigs, marquee, chat, ads, spammers, etc. would improve it more than reducing a 6000 database. That is, from the user standpoint. But like I said, this is one of the faster boards so unsure about the complaints.

I agree with Toaster, no real change in performance since the beginning.
