Registered Users with Zero Posts

#1 Post by Leitchy » Sun Jul 07, 2013 2:15 pm

All users who have registered earlier than six months ago and who have not had a post approved on these boards will be removed.

Yes, you heard right. Lurk all you want, but only after you've had one post approved, and the best way for that is to introduce yourself in a believable post. We would love to keep you with us as you are but it's becoming difficult to keep up with the damn spammers. So from now on, we're going to remove accounts with a zero post count that is more than six months old.

I figure if you haven't posted successfully in that time, you don't really want to be here or you are a damn spammer.

To clarify, this ONLY applies to newly registered users with a ZERO post count. If your post count is higher than zero, it doesn't matter how long it's been since you last posted, your account will not be removed.

If you cannot log in because your account no longer exists, click the Admin FAQs link to find the email address to send to.
Cheers

Oh thank the GODS! :multi:
Ok, let me get this straight. These guys come in, trash the place, slap Agrik & Larani around, and the most intelligible thing they said was "Zog!"?

Hello all. I'm a lurker and have been coming here a long time. I do not post a lot because I have a head injury that makes it hard for me to write. I would like not to be removed. I like coming here to read the posts. I love Harn and like to hear from all the other people as interested in this great game as I am. :oops:

I would have thought anyone who is registered by has managed not to spam for six months, is fairly unlikely to turn out to be a spammer. There are other good reason to have a spring clean though I am sure. Just as long as registered users don't have to post every six months - because I would have been evicted years ago ;-)

No, not once every six month....once and once only. :) There are other clues that spammers leave behind too. But I need to get the number of people with zero posts down so it's manageable. Wading through 27 pages, each with 50 user names listed, just to find the new damn spammer is a royal pain.

I say we take off, nuke the site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure. :wink:

Wowsers. Fail to visit for a while and one could lose one's access <sigh>. None the less, I can see why it needs to be done. To think that the internet was a wonderful thing back in the day when we walked to school, uphill, both ways, dodging native species of four legged varmits that thankfully have gone extinct by the time our Grandfather's hit the shores of America aiming to shape the destiny of the Old World...

Eh? Speak up sonny, I ain't hearing as well as I used to...

The way I read the announcement, it only applies to registered users with zero posts.

Just checking in after a period of lurking. Sorry to see things have come to this as well.

I've updated my original message to clarify things for long-time members, but the key point is this:

If your post count is higher than zero, it doesn't matter how long it's been since you last posted, your account will not be removed.

This really ought to be like a "just say hi" thread and it'll get us all posting so we can remain around. :D
