    Did 200 members who never posted get deleted?

    I hope that the Help Desk is the appropriate section.

    I had a "Do you fear 666" thread with random things that I had collected from paranoid people about 666. So I do remember when we went past exactly 666 members recently.

    I remember that possibly 2 weeks ago, we had about 700 members. Now we have 496. Is it a glitch? Or does darkbb.com have a policy of erasing members who joined years ago and never posted? I don't want people to be discouraged and leave the forums.

    Dark_wizzie, if you're reading this, I didn't email you yet because I'm looking for the .txt file where I jotted down your email address.

    EDIT: Sorry for the tone of this, but I'm not offended if nobody else is offended.

    EDIT 2: I now know there were 645 members on 2013-12-08 at https://web.archive.org/web/20131208090433/http://wolf3d.darkbb.com/

    I deleted them myself. These are people who's last visit on the forums was over 2 years ago and have a total of zero posts. If your last visit was years ago and you never ever bothered to even post, there's no point in making an account. No forum section that is available for viewing for a normal member is hidden to a guest. Guests can't post in most sections of the forum but clearly that's not an issue for these people as they've never posted before, ever.

    Considering the amount of people on the forum that has ever posted in the forum, 600+ is just a ludicrous number.

    Thank you for clarifying this.

    Thank you for clarifying this. I didn't want it to be a rule that nobody knew about.

    Yea sure. I just thought of the idea randomly the other day. I'm not deleting old members that posted that don't come here anymore. You still remember for example, The Ubermutant? Raziel? etc. They're not getting deleted. Even the one post wonders are not getting deleted. And there are still a large list of people with 0 posts who's last visit is many months ago still on the forum.
