I just wanted to announce that I have deleted 422 registered users on this board. All of these 422 registered users which are at least one week old have never once logged in to ozzu.com after they had created their account. This should help improve the performance of the board slightly, and should also free up some usernames that may have been taken.

If you are one of these users that were deleted (which means you wouldn't be able to login to Ozzu), you will need to register for a new account.

Never logged in? How much do they hog the server resources? Is it because of them being on the database? (I think this messageboard runs from a database?)

Well the part that is the biggest issue is how the read tracking system works. For ever user it adds up fast as far as database storage and processing time increases.

I think that it's a part of every forum administrators job to optimize their forum. I would only recommend administrators do this when they have registered user numbers like the ones here, if others try this technique they might lose there entire FORUM :P

How often do you delete the members? I hope not too often as sometimes people can be busy and can't log in for a few weeks but when they have time again, would like to log in again.

If you login at least once you are most likely saved too as I only delete the members who have never logged in at least once.

b_heyer hi,
Quote:
why did you register and not post?
its so pointless is'nt it, surely they look for something specific (discussion board) like i did when i joined here, i liked what i saw, registered, then i knew i was gonna post, there was so much to see, and i wanted to post...join in the debate i had seen as a guest, after all...it was an interesting discussion i fell on when i found ozzu.
3/4 of my members that don't "speak" lol come through me to get to flash-x, my on-line partner for his resources, but how they find me first is beyond me, flash-x is known all over the internet..well..pretty much anyway.
Even when they get to flash-x through my re-direction, do they "speak"..nooooooo lololololol not one word of thanks...i get really annoyed at that b_heyer, you know yourself how long it can take to find the right software, or maybe something else you want, well flash-x has a huge database of resources, its took a long time to build it all up, least they could make themselves known by a thankyou.
:x
suzie.

This is a good thing to do. When you've got so many users, it's a great idea to get rid of those that are just "eating" resources without doing anything.

I dont like the idea of things happening automatically to my database.,
