I was reviewing the forum's membership and exported a list to create statistics: .

The forum database contains a list of 4007 registered members. This is impressive but......

Between March 2008 and January 2015, 1,217 new members registered but never logged in. (why bother to register ?)

Another 900 members (with 0 posts) have not logged in since January 2015 (They may read the forum as guest)

The reality is that we get a real active membership of 1,896 members.

Consequently, to reflect the reality, I am deleting all members with 0 posts and not logged in for a period exceeding 6 months.

Safe move, CF. Idle accounts could be misused and it's best to manage them properly.

Thank you TWB and Robmack for your comments.

I already got Email from people asking me to keep their account active.
Here is my reply:
If you have logged in within the last 6 months or if you have a minimum of one(1) post, your account is secured.

Contrary to many other forums, here, you can read most of the posts (and see pictures) without having to register.
The only reason to register/login is to be able to participate to the discussion.

I suspect that many register simply to gain access to the great store of information contained here. They're not interested in Konversation.

I have to add that it's refreshing to see an honest revision downward, as we seem always to have to feel, as humans, that things are meant to be going up all the time.

I'm reminded of several years ago when I was a regular on Facecrack; I didn't have over three hundred friends, I had about thirty real, maybe less. I deleted more than half of them, stayed on there for a coupla more months, then quit altogether. It was a great feeling of reduction in complication.

Is it me, or is the forum moving heaps faster now?!

You are right 88KE.
Over the last 2 days I registered 42 new or new(old) members.
Quality is more important than quantity. Very Happy

Just a quick note to say 'thanks' CF for this, and all the work you do to maintain this forum. I really appreciate it, and enables me to keep my beloved K-bike on the road.

So... thanks!

Yep! Well done, Bert. Great job. I'm generally not one with words, but I REALLY appreciate the info and wisdom on this Forum. Also, I've made many great friends through this forum.

PS, Dazza! The US Open golf was on this weekend. Chambers Bay(?) Weird looking course. I dare say that it was up around your way. Some background shots showed quite a largish snow covered mountain. What mountain is that?

If CF want's to check out Dublin, he has a standing invitation, and I sure the same applies for the rest of Ireland. (and probably the world )

G'day Crazy Frog, not a great poster because of my limited knowledge of all things Kbike. You have done a fantastic job on this forum. Have learned a great deal about these machines and would have been lost without this forum. Have made some good friends and have enjoyed the odd rally. All the best and Cheers Tom

Thank you, but enough "thanks"

What I did was just something that should have been done a long time ago.
I never realized how many users registered and never used the site.
From now on, I will periodically do a cleanup and this will prevents to have so many users deleted at once.
During the cleanup, I may have inadvertently deleted some of the very newest members. If it's the case, I apologize.
This was quite a big task but it had to be done.

CF
