I like your bullets, if I get spare time I'll try to change them.

The problem with deleting people with 2-3 posts is that they may come to just ask a question every so often, recall this website and return to ask the question. I think it would be kind of a jerk move to delete their account under those circumstances. We need a bit of member purging but not that much.

Also I know what Dkj is talking about, he's talking about our wonky avatar uploading system. I have no idea why it's being that way, I've been using an external service for quite a while now.

@Charon:  That's why you wait until six months since their last post, rather than from the start date.  If it takes them six months to get interested enough to actually post, it's their own damn fault.

Also, what did you think of the emote organizing idea?

You'll really have to see what Atrius says about it, I'm still fundamentally against the idea but he might decide that we need to increase the number of posts required.

I like the organization, will probably see to edit tomorrow. Don't worry, no emotes will be removed... but I'm not sure if I can assemble them in that exact manner. We'll see I guess.

It's just two rows - the same as it is now.  I specifically designed it so that you only had to use different emotes without having to need different coding or anything like that.

It's not that, it puts a set amount on one row, then moves to the next.

I'm pretty sure I set where the first row ended, and the second began...

As far as member purging goes, I'm against doing anything aggressive with it.  Having your account deleted out from under you does not make for a very friendly and inviting forum experience.  The idea with the current purging is to delete accounts that will likely never be used, not ones that were barely used and forgotten.

In addition, if a member was to return and forgot their password, it generally shows more respect to show that they already have an account than to have their account deleted. I recently returned to a forum that I signed up for 3 years ago and forgot about, and was pretty pleased to see I still had my account on there.

Ok I'll get to it, probably tomorrow... I'm tired though, got home from work at 2:00 am and working on CAFFINE OVERRUSH right now... Maybe I'll upload them tonight and do the arranging tomorrow...

EDIT: ACK ROLE Mind posting a zip file? =_=

Zip file?  For what, exactly?  Be more descriptive.

@Atrius:  If they have left for half a year, with no posts, no nothing, then I think it's a fair bet to think they're gone and not coming back.  It's not being a jerk, it's just pruning inactivity.  You can't pull the rug from under a person if the person already left and is miles away, now, can you?

Hmm Role has a point. But so does Atrius.

How about, rather than deleting the account simply make it inactive?

When we first register we need to activate the account right? So for those who have not used there account for let's say 6 months. The account becomes inactive. Then if they decide to revisit and log in, they receive a message saying they have been sent an email to reactivate their account. Then have a script to recognize active and inactive accounts and sort them accordingly.

This will let us know how many active accounts in the forum and also still has the friendly approach Atrius wants to maintain.

Just so you guys know, I don't really know if it's doable or not.

Well go look at all these old single-digit accounts and tell me - how many of them have been active within the last half a year?  De-verifying them is one thing... but they'll still be there, so it doesn't solve the problem of having members show up on the memberlist who are arguably no longer members.  And it's a solid half the members we have.

I mean the buttons so I don't have to download them all one at a time, and so we can upload them as a package. Saves like 30 minutes of time lol

But... but... most of those are already emotes!  Only the djinn and saturn bullets aren't...  Ah, to hell with it, I'll do it anyways.  I'll even throw in a bonus Dark Dawn bullet set for kicks.

Fox: And since that's the case...  I have thought of another fun experiment idea. - What if we had an auction on who should run this site, and waited for 10 people to bid and also for a bare minimum of 24 hours. Who would bid the highest, and how much would that bid be? - The idea is more for lulz (Maybe for April Fools?), and a theory to get an idea of how much the site might be worth as well.
