If you have never posted on the Forums before, your account may have been deleted.

DundJinni Forums has over 400,000 inactive accounts, mostly from #@%^@# spammers, that are clogging up the system. The only way for me to get rid of them is to delete any account that has never posted.

So, if you have not posted yet, your account probably got deleted. If it happened to you, my apologies. It was necessary. PLEASE create a new account and email me so I can upgrade your status so you can post. Be sure to email me your new user name.

UPDATE: I can only delete about 300 at a time, so this is going to take a while.

You're good UnclePete. I am only deleting accounts that have never posted, and since it seems to take 15 minutes to delete 300 accounts, I am not going to get as far as I wanted.

Any idea how many accounts are non-posters and/or spambot
accounts? 350K? More?

There are about 2500 accounts that have posted at least once. all the rest are non-posters. There is no easy way to separate the spammers from the lurkers, but at this rate I'm barely making a dent. It has taken several hours to delete 10,000 accounts but that is only 2% of the total.

I seem to be able to delete about 380 members each run
and it takes a minute or so. I'll do more in between
others things I do at my PC

For the record, I selected non-posting members who
became a members 2 years or more ago. If you use another
setting, let me know.

Yeah, each time it deleted between 325 & 375 accounts. I selected 6 months, but can do 2 years if you think that is safer.
Thanks for helping. Maybe the forum will load faster with a smaller database to deal with.
