Hello everyone, I've just installed an algorithm into the forum that runs weekly to purge inactive members, and most bots from the forum's database.  Here are the criteria it looks for so you know how to avoid having your account deleted out from under you, although I think you'll find you'd really have to be trying in order for it to actually happen.

Your account will be deleted automatically if the following apply:
- It has been 6 months since the last time you logged in
- You have never posted on the forums

There are also anti-bot protections built into the algorithm as well, but as long as you make at least 2 posts on the forums you'll be safe from being accidentally purged by those as well, after all, bots usually make themselves pretty obvious with their first post anyway.


So, there you have it, get a post count of 2 and you're 100% safe from being purged.  Easy, right?  Just keep in mind that some sections of the forum don't count posts, but if you do as little as make an introduction topic here then reply to everyone after you've been greeted you'll be good to go.

Salanewt: Nice work hiding the searchbots Atrius!

Salanewt: I was wondering when I said that stuff! May need to work it out with Kain.

Daddy Poi: (The simplest being to not accept char IDs pass 255, I think.)
19, March, 2020, 05:33:15 AM
Daddy Poi: Heheh.... I'm just testing. You pretty much gave it away. Hahah. It seems to look fairly convincing, but I'm sure there's an easy solution to preventing it.

Atrius: Whelp, there it goes... Just what I didn't want.  Have fun with that I guess...   
19, March, 2020, 05:20:25 AM
Daddy Poi: So like. Replace the "e" with another "e"? Alright. Gotcha.
19, March, 2020, 05:04:41 AM
Daddy Poi: Good work.
19, March, 2020, 04:44:10 AM
Atrius: Nah, any member could change their name to what I did, there's a trick to it.  I just fixed it so that now the Cbox will use your new name if you change it though, so... That part of the problem is fixed.
19, March, 2020, 04:41:53 AM
Daddy Poi: For which? It may be that normal users can't change their names to used names, but admins can?
19, March, 2020, 04:39:57 AM
Atrius: Sorry if the Cbox keeps breaking, I'm trying to make that be less of a thing.

Daddy Poi: Looks like ID Fraud. You're under arrest. :D  Oh wait.
19, March, 2020, 03:57:56 AM
Atrius: Yup, that's a thing.
19, March, 2020, 03:57:08 AM
Atrius: Just testing something, for science.

Salanewt: Sounds good; thanks for looking into it!

Atrius: Hmm... Actually I need a different way to hide them.  Now there are 4 guests spread over 3 pages of users...
17, March, 2020, 01:04:22 PM
Atrius: Yeah, their usernames don't get changed, they're hidden now.
09, March, 2020, 11:37:02 PM
Daddy Poi: So um. When sorting by User, does it treat Guest and Searchbot as being the same name?
09, March, 2020, 11:20:43 PM
Daddy Poi: Most likely. Perhaps we could do a toggle, or a second page that becomes the new default.(Which can have a link to the old original page.) My thoughts.
09, March, 2020, 10:21:11 PM
Salanewt: Hey Atrius; would it be possible to hide the searchbots from the "users online" list?
