Petition to purge all usernames older then 1 year
    #2461529 - 03/22/04 09:51 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

We the citizens of Shroomery wish to ask for all names falling into the rules below to be deleted so that all the cool names people registered and never used may be used again.

Also it would make more space on the server...which is good.  And it helps in other ways like username searches would be shorter and the picture database would get a little smaller making the server faster.

People also upload pictures then link them to other sites which leeches bandwidth from shroomery....deleting alot of old names would also end up deleting alot of those linked pictures....helping the shroomery out. :thumbup:

OLD NAME PURGE RULES-

Person who hasnt logged in for one year and 15 posts or less in thier post count

Person who hasnt logged in for 1.5 years and 25 posts or less in thier post count

Person who hasnt logged in for 2 years and 50 posts or less in thier post count

Person who hasnt logged in for 2.5+ years and less then 100 posts in thier post count.

All of those should be deleted to clean up the place and make some cool names available.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

it would make more space on the server

username searches would be shorter

the picture database would get a little smaller making the server faster


deleting accounts that meet the criteria you mention
below will do very little to help any of these things.

by their very nature, people with no or very few posts
don't make a big difference when it comes to database
size or search performance, except, possibly, in the
rare case that someone is simply using the site as an
image host. But this is not likely as I believe the site's
host blocks image requests from outside the domain.

regardless, I'm all for some housecleaning.

Maybe delete the peoples pictures, but not the actual account.

The amount of space a user account takes up is miniscule.

Sounds like a lot of work for not much benefit.

The main point is to make the cool names available that people registered and never returned to use. The freeing up of space. and speeding up of searches would just be a nice little side effect even if it is barely noticable.

Old usernames with 0 posts are purged regulary.
I don?t like the idea to purge old users that already have posts. Perhaps the ones that have only 1-10 posts, don?t know....
We?ll see what the future brings.

Letting people delete picture they have uploaded could help.
