Deleted 900+ Members...

Well, we had alot of spammers that I went through and deleted... We also had alot of inactive accounts that had either never logged in or never posted...

So I deleted all members that had 0 posts and had not logged in at least once in the last 6 months...

Like we've always maintained, one post guarantees you'll never be filtered out in our mass-deletions for you browsers that have never posted even once.

I'm glad u deleted them. When I was really bored at my old job I had fun clicking on the bday people every day. I found that over half of them had registered and never returned to the site, or posted for a week and that was it.

Christian..

1 post in 6 months? Thats it? MOST places that are ' prime time ' go 1 in 3 months till they become ' inactive ' and require re-validation.

Your very ' easy ' with the way thats run. :)

Well, sorry we're not 'prime time', but this is the way I'm handling it currently...

Look at it like this, our newest member "Megboys" is the 7974th member to join R-F. If you look at our member count it shows 5236 members. That means that I have deleted over 2500 inactive accounts.

I would say that I am pretty efficient.

does clearing all those accounts out speed the site up at all?

Like I said on the phone, this thing flies with the jeep wheels on it now. I've been lighting them up about once a day just to play around, hehe.


As soon as I sell my 20's I'm going to order my new wheels and tires. I can't wait. I still need to stop by Austin Performance and get the spring perches and shock mount tabs. Been hella busy, as always..

You need 1.25" spacer adapters. They cost me 115 shipped on ebay.

You're doing a great job Christian, even though you do drive the other brand now. JK!

I only have like 275 of posts even though I've been here for 2 years but I'm on here at least everyday lurking around and putting my 2 cents in.
