User accounts with 0 posts don't really make that much difference, save from using a handful of bytes in the database (how much varies depending on the database, and how much they have entered in any free text fields, but it is often much less than 1KB per user, typically around 300 bytes) and tying up potential names. It's generally possible to identify which ones haven't been used in some time (all forums I've had any experience with at the code level store the last login time in the user's data), but even that isn't the best guide: someone might have created an account to use the search, and then not logged in again for a time, but still want their account.

You can introduce "if you have zero post count, you must log in every X months or be deleted" rules, but that can cause Issues too.

It's generally not worth expending much effort over it, IME.

TTLG's down again

but I'm guessing (and hoping) this is because dave is transferring everything to the new server

Before I left the forum page he had kitty pics up and a message saying he was just doing a bit of tweaking!

It's back up now with this from David:

Please Note: Any new posts, threads, private messages, thread subscriptions, profile changes etc will not be transferred to the new server as the data is currently being moved.
The forums will remain open during this time and I will update you with a temporary link you can use to access the new forums once the data transfer is complete as the DNS is being updated - David


So we can hang an Under Construction sign for now.

I've seen that now thanks.

Tell me pav - as the resident expert and I know I've just spent a week cat-sitting for my daughter, but what is it with the kitty pics all the time? :lol:

Cats are the most perfect creatures, so of course humans should take lots & lots of pix. They are the most highly evolved lifeform on the planet. Humans should all live to serve them.



*ACK!!! SCAT!!! I hate when the kitties take over my computer. Little buggers!
