Inactivity on the forums

Postby Candy » 21 Sep 2009, 11:11

In an effort to keep the forums maintained, I have put in place an automatic reminders system.

This will automatically send an email to users whose accounts have...
  • Been created/activated but never logged on after 10 days
  • Logged on but never posted after 15 days
  • Not logged onto the forum for 60 days

A second reminder will be sent after an additional 30 days. We will start to remove accounts 30 days after the second reminder is sent. This will be a manual process. In effect, if you register and never post/log on, your account will be deleted after two and a half months. If you have posted, then it will likely be removed after 4 months inactivity.

If you know in advance that you will be out of circulation for a while, let us know and we can put you in an exceptions list that will protect you from this process.

Although we have over 500 registered users, only around 200 of those are active. Pruning the inactive accounts (but NOT the posts they have made) will let us keep a much better idea of the site utilisation and to ensure that the forums remain as responsive as possible.

If you have any questions, please post them in the Support forum or send a PM to RFIAdmin.
