Heh heh, yep! I know I didn't register anything like a year ago, but I've been reading the forum for at least that long and I post very little, so I thought I'd better poke my nose in, too (sorry Ned, I couldn't resist).
Anyway, just letting the admins know that I am officially "still here!"
Don't worry Tony, anyone who has posted, even once a long time ago, can't be deleted. Each post belongs to a specific poster and to delete the poster would be to orphan the post. In a good database, this shouldn't happen.AdminAsgara Queen of the Universe
This is just to let people know that I'm doing this once again, and plan to do it periodically. Members with zero posts who registered a year or more ago, 34 in number today, are being deleted from the database.
Hi, Moose. So what happened to the effort to clear the member list of inactive names? As an example, in the first page alone, we have
1) aabbey, which has a link to a page no longer operational. 2)AaronM- no activity for over a year. 3) abbeyj-no apparant activity 4)abdhamed-although I would give him another few months...Egypt is a long way off. 5)abe-no activity 6)absolutelycatholic--and absolutely no activity forever! :)
etc...etc...you get the idea. Why not get rid of them?
This is the message that I get:You are not authorized to update search dictionary files: Phatboy: This function requires director level permissions AdminPhat: This function requires director level permissions
If I can do it, I will sweep through and clean up the members list. Tell me how to do so.

Just making sure I wasn't deleted. I don't post often, but do read this page quite a bit. I guess I should get more active on the board so this thing doesn't make me go "OH CRAP, QUICK, WHERE'S THE REPLY BUTTON SO I CAN SEE IF I CAN LOG IN!!!" Phew. Brad
Go for it, Boss! :) I never did like clutter! Ohnhais idea seems good too, though. As far as the alias thing goes, is there any way to delete an alias name without deleting the alias postings? Wouldnt the postings simply remain with the primary name?
