Just wondering, has anyone ever thought about clearing out inactive users?

Based on this

Quote:
For active and inactive users everything is based on the last 30 days.

* Active users: 951
* Inactive users: 33054
* Registered bots: 50
* Visited bots: 18



Just wondering, because 951 active users looks much better then 33054 inactive.

"based on the last 30 days" being the key words here.

I doubt within the next 30 days 33,000 members are suddenly going to become active.. Haha! Was just a question. From running forums I have always thought having active members is better then having a huge memberlist. Just my opinion though.

I don't know, if i had 33000 people who devoted that few minutes to signing up to my website (even if it's bots) then i'd be fairly pleased even if it was just to leave one or two messages.

Many of those 33000 verified members have left 1 or 2 posts here. If I were to remove them, then there would be posts by unregistered members. I will be sending an announcement soon to all members about all the changes that have happened to ozzu, so I am sure a large number will come back to check it out (ones that have not been here in awhile).

Oh yeah, Duh, I didn't even think of the unregistered user thing. I hope alot of them return because it will be great to see this place over-active again! :D

The only thing you can really use to remove users on is if they have activated their account or not. Some users register and never post, they just use the track topic feature.

Exactly. The only members I actually delete here are members who have not activated their account within the last two weeks. So that is why almost every member here is a verified member -- all of the unverified members get deleted. I have probably deleted over 20,000 unverified members so far.

Sweet, thanks for explaining it to me, I just wasn't sure how it worked, and the reasons behind it. I hope you didn't take it the wrong way.
