is there anyway we can bring the # of members down too those that post at least once every two months or smt cause i find many ppl (many many) have not posted anything over 5 posts and they been members for like 8 months and some havent posted at all. just a thought so we can get an idea of how amny members actually stay active (i bet theres like 500 members who dont post)

plez comment id like too know (especially you TO)

TO has considered it before, and did used to delete seemingly inactive accounts, but me and some others dissuaded him from doing it because:

-The members may return
-They might have technical problems
-It's nice to keep a record of the no. of members TO has had.

And several others I can think of right now.

I think about 100-150 members are currently active, but I might be being slightly optimistic?
Anyway, hope that explains it well enough.

In that case, so is sex. Therefore, pornstars and prostitutes are professional athletes.

It's pointless. Deleting members is only a deterrent for potential new members. If each member taken up lots of disk space I'd delete members, although in-active accounts hardly take up any space, and Tau Online isn't in need of more space anyways.

The 'users online today' section at the bottom will tell you how many have been on today: it gives an okay estimate at active members.

Um.. pessimistic if anything. This week, 255 different members have logged on. In the past month, 422 different members has logged on. Today already there's been 105 members online.

Hmm... maybe an active users counter might be handy, with a small defintion of active user...

My on-the-spot plan is a small page about the forums saying current active users and maybe an FAQ...

People can PM me if they want to know how many users have been active. The page would be fairly hard work to code, and wouldn't be too useful IMO. Or am I mis-understanding? What exactly do you mean?
