The Next Great Forum Purge - November 7th

Postby TB3 » Thu Nov 01, 2007 11:26 am

Yo Guys

As many of you know, every so often the admins have a purge of the website, clearing out all members with 0 posts and as many spambot accounts as we can find - last time we made this move it was a multi-hour operation carried out by all three of us at the same time.

This time will probably be smaller, but this is the normal seven days warning - we will clear out all zero-posters a week from now, with the exception of anyone who signs up after today - if you have any friends on the forums with zero posts, it would be best if you let them know so that they can bulk their account up.

Cheers and take care :)

It begins once again.

The hunt.

The Four shall slay while we watch the memberlist pages count drop

Falling, falling....

How many will be left?

How many shall be slain?

Only Time will tell....

*looks up* I have to stop doing that....

A quick check reveals slightly over 12 pages worth of zero-posters.

What about people who have only posted once or twice (and then only in 2005)?

Actually, I was wondering about that awhile back. Star Way was worried that it would delete their posts and then it could screw past conversations up... they'll actually just show up as a "Guest", so I would second that movement.
thank you all for the good memories <3

Anyone with posts will be left alone...unless they are found to be "spambots" that we missed somehow. XD;

This is only a purge of 0-post count posters. ^^

TB3 should reference the Great Purge in his next production. It would be a good excuse for him to go Shakespearian-Man again. I like JF's monologue.
How about this:
The Spammers
"There are few of us left.
We know we will soon be gone.
And so we can see our fate as others will see it.
There will be little legacy.
No great expressions of what we once were.
Our single posts, our necroposting, if ever they are seen again,
Will spawn none of the awe that filled our conquests.
We know our fate: We are being eliminated.
When we traveled cyberspace, the Cosmic Moderators took note.
When we trolled and hotlinked in forums where we had no place,
The spamming, and the flaming, and the locked threads
Were the clarion call of our doom.
And so the Moderators came for us."
Adapted from Freespace: The Great War
The Ancients monologue 4

Your call. Though there must be a lot of abandoned accounts from people who posted once or twice then never came back...

Do't forget what happened when Teebs's account was deleted by accident. All the threads/pages he had posted in all went screwy

And threads/posts from 2005 going screwy are going to bother us now... why? It's 2008 in a couple of months!

(arguing for the sake of arguing here)

Well...a couple threads that pop up every so often do go back that far...I think Character Discussion might be one of them...same with the couples threads. ^^

I guess I see your point. A few single-posters are just "Hi, I'm new!" sorta things, then they fade into oblivion....what about them?

If they have made the first post, then they will be fine, its just the people with ZEEERROOO posts that will be deleted.

Glory? Glory? What 'Glory' is there in senselessly obliterating any who
Have only dipped their feet in the vast waters of LyokoFreak?
Surely, they are just busy, without enough time to spare in cyberspace,
Maybe they are too poor to buy a proper vessel to wade the great seas
Of LyokoFreak, of Teklinks, of, of WTF Forums "Where the toilet is always half full."
I ask you again, what Glory is there in these, these... heinous acts of misguided
Souls! I only see SHAME!!!!wtf!!! I beg of you, repent! Repent, while you still can,
For the end is nigh, and any who do not find the light shall surely be left behind,
To rot and die for all eternity, Rot and Die in the decaying interior of their computer room,
Oblivious to their mistake, and when realization finally strikes their poor, poor souls,
It will already be too late. v_v

lol, I just couldn't resist. :P I had a blast writing that up. ^_^

And 'sides, this will do us good, POL Forums has been needing to do the same for a good while now. One of these days the mods will break under my constant but 'subtle' pestering. We have, like, over 80,000 members, most of them n00bs and zero & one-time posters, save for maybe 100 non-n00bish mems. But I digress...

Monologuing. There ain't no other feeling like it. If you were on my forum, I might promote you to my personal apprentice just for that beautifully over-the-top post. :D For the next part of your training, you must write a rhyme about something silly. I did mine on tea.

Isn't that a Eureka-related forum? I somehow always seem to miss that show, despite my half-baked efforts.

Seems to me like everything went well- there's only 3 pages of 0-posters now. More 1-posters than zero. :P
thank you all for the good memories <3
