Another 43 accounts purged for have never posted or logged in. I see several for next year as well.
Don't be nervous, if you have posted 1 time even to say Hi
. You are safe. Right now, I am using 0 post and never logged in ever
for the past 5 years. I am however considering expanding the criteria to 0 posts
that have not logged in for the past 5 years
. This would pick up really old accounts with no posts that have abandoned the site for over 5 years.
For example, there was a big influx of accounts for Doc's Diesel Weasel in 2016. Most have 0 posts and haven't logged in again since Jan//Feb 2017.
Here's the catch. Did they show up and vote then leave? If so,
- were they created accounts to pad the vote then never used again? In that case they are invalid, or (not saying Doc had anything to do with it, but he does have lots of fans on his FB group)
- were these really interested people in the build but didn't have anything to say and voted then forgot the site?
Votes do not count as a post. If they did vote and I use the no posts no logon for 5 years, would those votes vanish, or would they become "phantom" votes? This is why I have never considered purging people that have logged in at least one time. I guess I could make a dummy account. Vote then delete it to see what happens to the vote. I may do that.
