Post Removing Old Members.
Given that we have a huge number of members, putting stress on the server, would it make sense to delete the accounts of utterly inactive users who have never logged in or made a post?

I don't mean lurkers, just people who haven't logged in since years ago.

Personally, I think that all 0-posters be deleted. It's been done before.

I agree. I remember the last time it was done, I think it's time to do it again!

Yes...
How does that stress the server again?

Loading a few kb text file with the user information = stress?

Sorry wut.

Well you know how fragile the server is anyway, and besides, it's always nice to clear out a load of rubbish.

Speaking of clearing out rubbish...

  • Turn off signatures altogether.
  • Make it so you can't make threads until you've posted 50 times.
  • Delete any mod that isn't compatible with the current build.
  • Delete all negative posts.
  • Ban people if they say the words:
    • Stick it in her
    • Over 9000
    • Communist
    • Cactus Fantastico
  • Make the default font color puce.

All in el favour say "EieEyeEieEyeOh."

EieEyeEieEyeOh!

Except for the bit about signatures and saying the word communist, because I like well regulated sigs and I started a debate thread about communism.

Oh and also about negative posts. No flaming, but some people just need to know that they aren't the modding genius they think they are.

I agree with absolutely nothing up there - except for font colours. Good gods, if I see one more person post in an eye melting colour they may actualy will.

But on the topic of making topics, maybe a temporary removal could be put into effect - when a certain number of people hit the '!' button on a thread, it'll be automaticaly removed from the public eye to be examined more closely by moderators. That way problem threads can be removed faster, but still need approval by a mod.
