Forum Sweeps - One Down, when's the next? :)

Postby TB3 » Tue Jan 09, 2007 8:06 pm

Hello Lyokofreaks of the world. Good-day, Bonjour, Gutentag and so forth.

This is the new administrative team of Stephen, Mewberries and TB3 announcing the next forum sweep, scheduled for Tuesday the 23rd of January, during which all accounts with 0 posts will be deleted.

This sweep will be deleting all inactive accounts, the only exception being members who sign up between now and the 23rd who would not have recieved this message. Any other 0-posters who wish to retain their accounts are urged to get online and begin posting.

The reason for the the sweep is simple - Lyokofreak currently has over 1700 members, of which over a 1000 have never posted. Many of these accounts are also dormant spambots, automatic programs which sign-up to forums and hotlink to websites that they promote via viral marketing - these are frequently of an obscene nature innapropriate to our members and the complete opposite of the friendly, safe environment we want to continue at Lyokofreak.

We feel it's a shame for the forum to approach it's second anniversary in this state, and so our first group action as admins is to carry out this sweep, to continue our forum's status as our World Without Danger

Until next time, take care, keep safe and we wish you all a very happy 2007.

----

PS: We also wanted to send this as a mass email to all members, but there seems to be a glitch with that tool, so this is all we're getting for now :P

The majority, yes. Daily ones after that will have to be dealt with one-by-one until we can get a mod or something to block them.
What will you remember me for?

I have my SWAT outfit, and I am bringing Fluffy to the purge, its time to lock and load yall.

Dealing with them individually might be ok...but getting rid of the majority is the main focus. Clearing space for legitimate users is critical.

Yep, no need to worry. Those of you that were here the last time there was a purge aren't any danger of being deleted at all...since we're dealing with members that joined after that.

As for those of you that joined afterwards, believe me, it's only 0 count posters and spambots. Those of you with posts have nothing to fear. The whole process will be done exceedingly carefully, rest assured. ^_^

Still... hypothetically speaking, is there any remote chance you could be "incited," to "Accidentally," shall we say, bump someone off (wink wink)?

*laughs maniacally* Oh, of course not...it's not like I've got a...oh say, a list, of people that could be..."bumped"...as you say. *hastily stuffs a long list of names into her pocket* Hypothetically speaking of course...

:*D Aww, I'm just playing with you guys. XD Myself and the other Admins would never delete someone just because we could (unless of course they were a spambot or something like that ;) ). ^_^

It should...unless they need all the power they can get...or all of the concentration they can have without having to deal with other issues.

We do have the option of closing the forums while we work on this,but we're still not sure what we're going to do on that front.
