    Exclamation If you have a post count of zero, you account is about to be deleted!!!

    Most of you remember I had mentioned that I would be pruning users on 31 July 2007. Well, I gave everyone an extra 12 days.

    To keep you up to date on it, here is what I have done so far.

    1. I deleted all with accounts more then 15 days old that had not completed the registration process, I think that number was in the hundreds. Some of it was spammers and some was users that have their spam filters set too high and never received the confirmation email.

    2. I deleted users with a post count of zero, that had not logged in since 1 July.

    I gave some guys more grace period, because they had logged in lately, but their post count was still zero.

    So listen up all you lurkers, this is your last chance to step out of the shadows and join the fun at militaryfirearm.com

    If your post count is zero and you have been a forum member more then 90 days, your account will be deleted in 10 days.


    All of this is done to keep the forum running smooth.

    Here is the thread you can reply too.

    Thanks,

    M1 Tanker

    I understand, and support this move, this way the data base of users doesnt get huge with useless "users".

    Though it still reminds me of the quote from WKRP, where Johnny Fever breaks the phone then says

    "I'm telling you man, those phone cops play hardball!"
    Just replace phone cops with Modrators, with pimp sticks.

    M1,

    is there a reason why you cant see pictures on this forum unless you are a registered member?

    Im asking because when I see something cool on here, I'll send the link to some friends, but then they won't be able to see it.

    Im imagining these zero post accounts could be people like that.

    Excatly what Nalioth said.

    It prevents the hot linking of our photos to other places on the web, stealing more bandwidth.

    In the end, we get a faster, cleaner running server.

    Deleted more users this morning, about 15 legitimate registrations. Too many people using hotmail/yahoo/gmail and don't know how to setup their spam filters, so they never get an email.

    Also have canned about 50 spammers in the past week. The amount of russian/chinese/etc.. porn and drug dealers is simply out of control. They try about 5-10 times a day.

    I'm still around! Please don't delete me,my family would miss me very much.
    Many things going on. Can't believe how this board has grown. Hi to all my old friends that helped me get that dang yugo built.

    Oh yea, got me a brand new grandson on May 17th. Gage Riot. Couldn't get daughter to name him FMJ so she came up with the name so I could call him 12 Gage Riot Gun if I want.

    Just FYI so everyone know...

    The spammers are hitting us on an incrediable scale.

    I added 20 email domains to the banned list today and banned about 50 users who couldn't post, but were spammers.

    So again, it behooves you to use your real email account, instead of gmail, hotmail, etc. Tanker ain't gonna sell or giveaway your email addresses.
    In those moments where you're not quite sure if the undead are really dead, dead, don't get all stingy with your bullets.
