Yeah I totally agree with you on this! There should be some kind of policy that says members who haven't posted within six months of registering get their account deleted. Or something like that. I never knew there were so many! 72 pages!?

Wait a minute .... how did you get that information?

If I signed up for a forum and only lurked (which is what these users are mainly doing) and then one day had my account deleted for no good reason (the fact that I haven't posted is NOT a good reason, I chose that username and I may wish to post under it at some point), then I'd be pretty pissed off.

A database of users who are not active does NOT eat bandwidth (no idea where you get that idea Roarkiller, until a user logs on its just a bunch of text sitting on a server, inactive).

Leave the lurkers alone, there not doing anyone any harm and they equally have a right to use that username. Just because they have it and you want it is not a valid reason to delete their account.

well, i dont see much lurking going on, if you want to lurk why not just be a guest?

when ever i see members on here, i know them as posters, there are very few people who sign up, lurk and dont post anything.

i would say cut the excess, and if they want to sign up again and actually post then they are free too.

My point being it's NOT an excess, its just a list of names (text files) on a server. Its not baggage, it slows nothing down, it takes up no space - so why worry?

Technically it does take up space and use bandwidth - the member info obviously takes up MySQL entries, and as for bandwith, whenever someone searches by matching user names - or looks up the member list, they're drawing from that info, and this includes spiders from search engines. However, it's small and fairly negligible, and this isn't really a huge bustling forum.

The annoyance is with usernames being taken up. On a topic-specific board like this people sometimes like to take Ghibli-related usernames, for instance: San, Shizuku, etc. It would be annoying to a newcomer if these usernames were taken up by inactive user.

There is a difference between an inactive member and a lurker. But even then, logically, a lurker has no reason to register a username, as they can read the forums unregistered, this forum does not restrict that. I can see the point that lurkers (rather than completely inactive users) may post sometime later. But if it's a case of a new (posting) member wanting a username versus a lurker keeping it "in case" they post later, the first person should get it, I think.

Anyway, I don't even know if this is possible on Burning Board. On the bigger forum software, there are scripts you can run to prune the inactive users, I don't know if the same exists for this software. And I'm sure that the admin isn't going to do it by hand (who would want to).

I dun think there are many people who register just to read anymore. There use to be downloads that requires forum registration but those are gone now.

username being taken shoudnt be a huge problem, i hope people's names are a lil more unique than just using ghibli character names
