Inactive accounts -- Doing some Forum Janitorial Work

edited April 2014 in News & Announcements
So I decided to have a look at our userlist earlier today... we had over 500 users who had registered, never posted and never even activated their account via the confirmation email. Therefore, I decided to prune the inactive user list just now. The registration process requires a valid email, some I know were obviously fake (eg. so that's why you couldn't log in and post after creating an account.

If you just registered and your account mysteriously disappeared, you can go ahead and re-register... I wasn't intentionally deleting you because I hate you or anything, the account just wasn't active according to phpbb. I'll probably be doing this on a regular basis, let's say yearly for now. There's still 550 registered users here with 0 posts going all the way back to 2004 but I don't think I'll go and prune those since they're technically active and some might lurk here still.

If you have issues registering for an account, go ahead and post a topic in Site Issues and we'll look into it, if it's an activation problem I'll manually activate your account if requested.
