Hey Rev. When are you gonna clean up all the users that have all those names like “Bman” “Yellowhead Studios” etc. all those imposters… it would be nice to have a more accurate count of heads and not see those imitators everywhere

And the ones that have 0 posts.

Whenever I go through the memberlist and take down all the e-mails and IM account names,
I notice that there are TONS of inactive accounts.

Cleaning up the userlist is something I’ve been intending to do for a while, but haven’t gotten around to it. I want to be careful not to knock out any frequent lurkers. When I go to do it, I’m going to check against the last date visited before I erase someone.

I’d though a bit about this, and Rev,
does a lurker need an account?

I mean, they can view posts and everything without one,
and when they do decide to drop in and post,
they can make an account, but until then,
you could delegate it to someone to delete all the 0-post accounts.

I feel that lurkers *do* need an account. They can reserve the name they will want to use in the future. This is especially important since the film submission will be coupled to the account in the future.

Banjo: you tired me with that post, but you don’t need to tire anyone else. Bye-bye, post!

Hey rev, as to make sure you dont kill any lurkers, you can send a mass email to everyone, and if the send back you leave em, if not you delete em… and give em bout as month to respond. thats the simplist ay i can think of, and i think phpbb lets you just click a button to do it…

No.. with phpbb its mass emailing “all users” only.. see http://hockey07.x-world.nl/images/email_all_users.jpg for more information (its a pic of it lol). Or rev can stick them in their own usergroup and email them that way

i was a lurker for like six months b4 i used my account…..
and i think that a lurker has the right to his name….
if its ther just leave it alone….
though the imposters could be dealt with in a very inhumane way(along with certain Others Creatins that frequent just to be seen..)

though most have poked there heads in here once in awhile….
Any one remember
Stabio????
(who was the first to ever talk to me in the forums…)
Holgor
Windforce
(who was the first to truly annoy me..)
Litervis????
(who also checks in once and a while…)

I know at least one (maybe two) person(s) on your list still posts here under a different name – I won’t be specific as it may cause… unrest… and y’all know how I hate that ;)

Hey, I am windforce. If anyone here doesn’t know why I am using this name is because my username got banned by Jason after that long fight with Technologyfilms.
