I suggest that any members with 0 (or maybe 1) posts who signed up more than 3 years ago be deleted from the member list. If they havent made a post in that long, they probably are not going to start now. Plus, it would remove the spam poster member names.

Why? I dont know - just figured it would clean up the list a bit. :silly:

Excellent suggestion. I recommend we make taiwan_girl a moderator and then she can get right on this. :)
As a good person, I implore you to do as I, a good person, do. Be good. Do NOT be bad. If you see bad, end bad. End it in yourself, and end it in others. By any means necessary, the good must conquer the bad. Good people know this. Do you know this? Are you good?

So is Taiwan Girl being made a moderator? And what is the category "Validating" for? I understand administrator, moderators, members, and suspended (although that list is empty), but I don't know what validating is.

Seems like the latest topics in this area all have to do with kitchen design from spammers. Wonder if that is because of the coffee room title to this board?

I don't know if this is something even jgoo could do.

If it even is potentially possible, it would certainly be a lot of work.

Sorry for the bump, but what about people like me who joined in 2009 and only want to start posting today for the first time? If the mass deletion plan had of gone forward I would have never been able to finally come out of the "forum posting closet" and make my debut here in this topic!

:D Viva la inactive members! ^_^

Obviously nothing has happened in this regard, but if we want to do this, I could offer my help to write a script to automate the task.

Does member count contribute to our #3 ranking?

The Confederate soldier was peculiar in that he was ever ready to fight, but never ready to submit to the routine duty and discipline of the camp or the march. The soldiers were determined to be soldiers after their own notions, and do their duty, for the love of it, as they thought best. Carlton McCarthy

Interesting. Maybe the total number of posts?

At least we are two places ahead of HateMachine.us

Was afraid to click on that one, so dont know what that is about (and probably better if I keep it that way!!)
