Member List Cleanup « on: April 08, 2011, 09:49:12 PM » Author: Mercury Man
Hey all,

Just in case any of you happened to notice, the membership body of the site has decreased by about 75 members.

What I have done is delete old accounts in which the users never uploaded any photos, and have not logged onto the site for over a year (365 days).

Any member who has uploaded pictures still remains a member, no matter how long he (or she) has been inactive.  Accounts in which the user has photos in the gallery will never be deleted, so don't worry.   :)
 
We are now at 266 members.

Is this a regularly-occurring "sweep"? Sounds great. Isn't it annoying when people register but then are never active? ::)

Indeed. I've seen this elsewhere and I'll never understand it. Why register and then not make use of the site  ???

这就相当于注册了只是挂名而已,也可能没时间,或者部分外国人不懂英文,就像我一样。我还有一个朋友他也注册了照明画廊网的账号,但是因为他对英文不熟悉,所以就一直没登录过。

That makes sense. Maybe some people have trouble using the site with a translator then?

I ignore all posts not in english characters since all they show as is a string of question marks and commas. Something like that has no translation.
(plus even if that wasn't the case, anymore I don't even know a good translation site)

As far as the original topic...
I don't see that leaving those blank/inactive usernames hurts anything (though it certainly doesn't hurt anything to clean 'em up either)

It appears your browser or computer does not support those characters....

I have removed any username that has been a member for over a year, not logged on in the past three years, has no posts or comments, and no pictures.  This has reduced the member count by 256.  Nobody else should have been affected by the deletion.

It's been a mystery to me why there are so many members on this site that seem to have done very little since joining, if you can see the pictures as a guest, why bother joining. ???
