User account PURGE on the way!

submitted by CrazyJ on Monday, January 28 at 2:38 PM

On February 1st we will be purging the user database of inactive accounts. This is done to free up usernames for new users and generally keep the database fresh. Any account that does NOT meet AT LEAST ONE of the following criteria will be deleted :

1. Has at least one post on the message board, in story comments, or in calendar comments.
2. Has entered their schedule in school tool.
3. Has submitted a joke.
4. Has rides.
5. Has a photo gallery.
6. Has submitted a story.
7. Has a book for sale on the book exchange.
8. Has logged in since the first of this year.

So basically, if you account does not meet one of the following criteria and you wish to keep it, just login. If you forgot your password and/or username go to our forgotten user page to retrieve them!

UPDATE : (1517 row(s) affected)

I wish hotmail and AIM would do this so people could get good usernames on there.

shouldn't there be some cut-off date where you don't delete accounts?
so that someone who registered a week ago doesn't get deleted.

This system is way too lenient. People who did any of numbers 1-7 a year ago and left immediately will still be here.

Its called relational database integrity. If there was anything left from a user (post, calendar event, etc) and we deleted them from the database, we would have orphaned records. And we aren't going to delete posts and stuff like that to remove their traces.

Jake, clear out all the people that don't have a post or anything. I just went to the users part, and see tons of ZERO posts with a lot of the users.
