Every day, between 10 and 20 new members register on Melswebs. However, some of these new members are spammers, some do not activate their accounts, and some do activate their accounts, but never make a single post. This is taking unnecessary space in our database, and cause the site to have a huge number of members, of which a low percentage is actively participating on the boards.
The admins are therefore cleaning up the memberlist to free up space on the database and to ensure uality over quantity by deleting all members who registered but never activated their accounts, and all members who have not posted anything in the 12 months since they registered. Members with only one post, made in 2004, will not be deleted. However, members who have not posted anything will be deleted 12 months after their date of registration. (Recognisable spammers are deleted the moment they register, but sometimes a few do slip through, and then we delete them as soon as they post...and we LOVE to zap them!!!)
In other words, if you HAVE posted, anything, anywhere, even a reply to something, DON'T WORRY, your account will not be deleted. If you have not posted anything anywhere yet, you have 12 months (from the date of registering as member on the site) to do so.
Hope this makes sense!!
