    Over 50,000 Usernames Deleted!

    Wow!! Today I have deleted over 50,000 usernames based on the below conditions:
    Post count: 0
    Last login: More than 60 days ago
    This has essentially freed up usernames that new members have wanted to register but couldn't because they were "hogged" by non-participating or members that had not activated their account.
    Before the cleanup: 60,934 members
    After the cleanup: 8,197 members
    This cleanup has not deleted posts, and we still have just under 500,000 posts still at AO.

    Thank you.

    Wow....may i say this on forums but..God dam lol thats alot really i cant stand inactive people but sometimes it can be understandable. i mean I am a member of 3 forums that i never go to because im so used to just going to the ones where i am well known and have high post count so to some others AO might be that scenario

    A lot of them were also accounts awaiting activation by the member. Yeh, it sure was a big number. I was very surprised.

    Remember how I suggested that we should have sold them to the members instead?? this is good too i suppose.

    'Cause you give me something / That makes me scared, alright / This could be nothing / But I'm willing to give it a try / Please give me something
    'Cause someday I might call you from my heart

    this is a very awesome thing the nic i have now was
    because the name i wanted was took .....anyway hopefully
    more people will join so they can have there on name

    and not just because of that but most people like
    a forum where there name is one of a kind
    I'll be the one to protect you from your enemies and all your demons
    I'll be the one to protect you from a will to survive and a voice of reason
    I'll be the one to protect you from your enemies and your choices son
    They're one in the same, I must isolate you...
    Isolate and save you from yourself
