@amkeew: What you listed has already been resolved in the above posts. The Geek has no plans for deleting old accounts at the current time and the database space is no problem. Plain text takes very little space and I think The Geek listed in his latest article that the server has a 1 terabyte hard drive.

There are a lot of accounts where the person actually never even logged in once... that's what I'm looking at cleaning up.

Gotcha jd and the geek.

"Never even logged in once". Yes, those dead accounts are worth deletion. Sorry, if I misread your proposal.

Join date will be reinstated. Is it okay to leave the 'former member mpc' up for a bit so everyone knows it's you?
