Deleted Accounts
« on: April 30, 2010, 09:33:06 AM »
Regular visitors have noticed the total registered user numbers drop fast.
Removing bogus accounts was done to increase speed and usability of the forum, and it certainly helped.

The count went from over 60,000 to 17,600.
Those 42,000 were removed, one at a time, by a few people.
Somewhere in a project of that magnitude, there will be mistakes.

If your account is missing, please sign up again.

Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Any resemblances between admins on this board and Vogons are purely coincidental.

  Ghurd, no inconvenience, but even if I had also been vaporized, that can be fixed.
  I never found it that bad, but it is awesome now.
  Many thanks to all for the hard work.

I take an excessive delight in zapping scummy SPAMmers very shortly after they create their accounts...  B^>

Some of our users have deleted their files for various reasons. Other users were hosting their pictures on outside sites like Photo Bucket, etc. Some of these photo services don't exist anymore or the users have deleted or changed their photos.

Weve had some recent activity from spammers.

Your account may have been deleted on accident, we make it a point to Ban people as a very last resort.

If an account is merely deleted, it leaves the user the option to make a new account and post "feedback"...

We cant figure out what your old user account was. That would be helpful for us to know.
