Membership purge

Post by jeff »

if you are logged in and reading this, then this wont affect you

over the coming months we will be purging the club database of all members that either have registered and never logged in afterwards or that have been dormant for over 999 days, i.e. members that haven't logged in for this period

emails are being sent out to this effect


Not Plan B again!! Why don't we just go with plan B in the first place?

Would just like to know why out of interest. is it just like a disc clean in windows 10 or does it have some big practical benefits ? I guess you can then see a more realistic membership total.

No posts will be removed, there are none to remove for these accounts, they are for people who registered and have never logged in or posted since then. The majority are 10+ years old, going back to the start of the club in 2003/4.
Where their email addresses are still valid they will get at least 2 warning emails before the accounts are removed.
The reason is mainly housekeeping. With over 38,000 registered users the size of the database is not insignificant, just removing the ones who have never logged in ever will reduce that by at least a third. Reducing the database size has benefits in reducing storage space, back up times, search times etc
We have always had a pretty accurate idea of the active membership size, we do keep tabs on it. :)

I received one of those emails as I haven't been active for some time. But, I still look in occasionally although other aspects of life have taken over in the past couple of years. I still have my cars and go for a run out when possible (waving to other MR2 owners I may see out on the road).

Hi, all!

Yes, I'm one of the offenders, haven't logged in for a long time, still have my old 1992 Auto SW20 (pretty rare these days) and my 2000 late registered SW20.
Due to life have not taken care of these as much as I'd like so plan some intensive TLC on them both over the next few months!
