Next weekend I'm going to delete all members with 0 posts.  If you would like to hang onto your username/handle, please post something this week.

Are you going to do it "0 posts AND Last Active < date X"? You could easily make more work for yourself in having to respond to folks who are interested followers but aren't comfortable with posting out in public.

I say this because I received and responded to a PM this morning from a "zero-poster" who's been a member since 2011.

Just a thought, any "zero posters" who don't want their accounts deleted could simply respond to this thread with "Don't delete me."

If that's the case, better put it in the N Scale forum so everyone sees it. :trollface:

Don't Delete Me!!

 :D :trollface:

Seems like a good idea, probably ease the bandwidth as well.
Was curious though, don't users here have to have a minimum post count to see this sub forum? Or is that the Crew Lounge?
Science isn't about why, it's about why not. Why is so much of our science dangerous? Why not marry safe science if you love it so much? In fact, why not invent a special safety door that won't hit you in the butt on the way out, because you are fired! Not you, test subject, you're doing fine.

The Crew Lounge I know is closed to new members.  I tried logging out, and Administrative is still visible, even to non-members.

Interesting . . . you still have zero post count (even after your first post).  :|

The running post count does not include the admin section of the board, so I guess Tom risks cutting off active members who only post to the admin board. ;)   But seriously, I don't think there is any content a zero-post member can see that a non-member can't see, so no one will be blocked from seeing content.  I think Tom is just trying to clean house.

Can we make special requests for account deletions, e.g., @wm3798?   :trollface:
