Pruning (new members please read!)
« on: November 21, 2008, 03:20:37 PM »
I like to keep active members on the members list of this site. Periodically, I will prune "old" members based on post count and activity. If you are active on the forums (perhaps, active PM'ing) then you have nothing to fear. However, we'd love to have some posts from you as well!

Here's the list of those who will be pruned from time to time:

*Members who haven't been active for 3 months and have 0 posts.
*Members who haven't been active for 6 months and have less than 3 posts.
*Members who haven't been active for 1 year and have less than 5 posts.
*Members who haven't been active for 2 years and have less than 10 posts.
*Members who haven't been active for 5 years and have less than 20 posts.
*Members who haven't been active for 10 years and have less than 50 posts.
*Members who haven't been active for 100 years and have less than 100 posts.

If you can make it to 50 posts I think you're pretty safe.

I didn't think bots could automatically sign up, much less get pass the CAPTCHA...

Devious, filthy little buggers.  What exactly have the bots been doing to TLHH lately?

You: This isn't the quote we're looking for.

You: You can go about your business.

I suppose I should start again, though we haven't really been having problems with bots recently AFAIK.

I'm running a batch of pruning today... just a heads up. Member count will drop substantially.

EDIT: Done. Pruned all members with 0 posts who have not been active in the last 6 months. Next round I'm moving to 3 months (based on activity, not on registration date).

If someone has not made any posts, what do they really have to lose? Worse case they can just recreate their account with the same username. And for those heavy traders/PM'ers... I ask that you contribute more than just to the marketplace.

123 of 460 members have zero posts. What is more disturbing is that 48 of the 58 people who have registered in the past month have fewer than two posts.

I think it's pretty great that we have new members 3+ years since the game officially stopped production!

Sure, some tournament structure would be great, but more tournaments in general would be even better, so everybody get out there and play a pick-up game with a friend at your local card shop! You might just get some interest from other people - I did!

For all of you with dozens of posts... remembers... you are NOT going to be pruned unless you haven't been active (i.e. never even logged in) for a good 5-10 years!

No worries, folks! The main point is to get rid of spambots.

Even if you never post (and have ZERO posts), but log in every few months or so, you will never be pruned.

Don't worry...

a) I haven't run the pruning for a while,
b) It's based off both activity and post count. If you're active (i.e. you browse the forums often), you'll never be pruned, even if you don't post much.

Like three days.  Read the code of conduct.
"Do you ever wonder why we are here?  Maybe you're here because it is the only place you fit in.  Maybe you're here because you have nowhere else to go.  Maybe you're here because deep down, you want to be here.  It doesn't matter why you're here.  All that matters is that you are here!"
