AUGGH!!!  Why is nobody posting?!?!   *damn suggestion thread that nobody reads*

If we don\'t get at least 20 of the regular poster in here, why in the world would the mods ever consider implementing a policy?  Cmon!  13 votes out of 3000 members, probably 300 active???  That\'s like .3%.... Where is your pride??  Voter turnout is key to a democracy, and we know that mm believes in that!!!  Lets go peep!  Get those votes in!

I don\'t think it\'s technically possible to make a \'formula\' that can delete the inactives. This piece of forum software just doesn\'t work that way AFAIK.
RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRAPETIME!

This post that you have made will only reach those 13 people who actually voted, correct? Kind or ironic, don\'t ya think?

Heh heh, that\'s a fringe benefit - but he has 500 posts, so even by my scheme I have to wait till december 2001...

Besides,  I started this poll before I picked my picture (and I picked my picture from GIFS.com), and then later no-one pointed out the fact that it was taken.

I hope the fact that this suggestion forum\'s "files" keep turning yellow will attract the non-reading masses!

i still dont give a ****!!:laughing::laughing::laughing:







j/ks na i like ddaryl\'s idea but i think the guys under 500 posts have to post every 6 months and over 1000 every 12 months............ or something.

ya see if everyone gives opinions then we can come up wtih a solution to fix this problem.     (get rid of the postless scum):D
what?!? Were you expecting a signature?

Yes, ddaryl\'s idea is good. If a person registers and then decides to get back after a month ( without posts ), finds his/hers account deleted, can this person register again with the same name, if wanting so, and not losing a bit.

So yes, for the benefit of the registered members count, and for the great effort FatalXception has put into this thread, I shall vote "I AGREE".

I\'ve got a better idea. Lets delete everyone who hasnt voted!!!

That will get all the regulars in here having there say!

I guess there are many people that don`t know that this threads exists.
Surely there a many people that don`t even look into the suggestions forum.
If you want all posters to vote this should be in the main forum.

Can\'t it be?  Give 3-4 people with trustworthy amounts of posts and time joined temp admin priviliges, and let em do it one at a time.  It wouldn\'t be hard, I could make a table.  Go to the memberlist, sort by date, and work from the back to the front, deleting the very old accounts...

Pardon the grammar.  I just don\'t care enough :D.
