While some of the "0-posters" are spammers (we discussed it before), and some others registered and then simply forgot about the forum, I think we should leave them alone. First, they might come back some day, and we wouldn't want them to feel unwelcome (by removing their accounts); second, accounts are not only for posting, but also for comfortable forum viewing (e.g. view post since last visit etc.). I'm sure there are some people who didn't post (because they didn't feel like, maybe they're shy, or maybe they just have nothing to say yet), but they would like to follow the forum's activity... get the point?

I truly agree with bojster.
We've been discussing the same thing on another forum where I'm moderator, and we said the same thing; People might use the "View new posts since last visit" function.

I won't delete the accounts of those who are wise enough to not post if they have nothing to say. ;-)

But seriously: bojster and Zomis are exactly right. And about the spammer accounts: I'm sure I got them all (and deleted them), at least those with a spam URL (and those without can't really be considered spam accounts). I have to delete quite a few new spam accounts every week, though, but I try to get them as soon as they show up (and only those where I'm 100% sure that they are really spam accounts, like those with an obvious spam URL as their website link).

I had some posts on the old forum,
and when this one was created I automatically made a new account, but had nothing say anymore. So I'll guess that made me a 0-poster.

I'll probably post again when my level-set is finished.

EDIT: It seems like I did have 1 post lying around somewhere...

There are currently too many connections to this server. Please check back again in 30 seconds."

Grunt: The old board doesn't exist any more and the link redirects to proboards' main page. What you clicked, however, is the old forum's emulator. :P

Thanks for noting -- removed now.

I was away for a week, and had no time checking for junk members, so it's life was a few days longer that that of the other spam members... ;-)

Well, that's how php+SQL work. There is no such entry, thus it's displayed with empty fields (01.01.1970 is 'the beginning' in unixish systems). Check this: profile.php?mode=viewprofile&u=111111

Umm, hello. I thought I got tired of my old name (Don Quixote), so Im going from my real name instead. Its really no use when you want to give credit to yourself when you're making a level, but Jeez, I don't even remember why I picked Don Quixote as my nickname in the first place. :lol: Anyway, I am Mark, not Don Quixote (he is in the past). Sigh. So, I think if we waited a bit... Or maybe emailed these people to let them know that they have an account here. Or just remove them. I don't know.
