I believe the attachment thing is the reason for a vast majority of these zero post members and I agree that there's no reason not to delete them now/periodically/automatically.

Go even further and delete old 0 reply threads and all redundant, newbie questions.
BTW also I would like to be able to delete my own posts.

I'm fine with getting rid of 0-post users, as long as guests can download attachments.  Perhaps you can add that visual verification thing (the same one you have for creating an account) for downloading attachments, to try to cut down on abuse?

That's a good idea, I'll check into it... Of course that it had to apply to guests only, not to registered members.

I vote yes, if I'm eligible to comment I would say that 90 days would be a fair cut off point, and also some cut off point for inactive members perhaps? (Those that have posted but not for long time), with announcement of that at signup time. Also, is archiving of old threads a way of trimming down?

I've voted with yes (particularly anonymous users are now able to download attachments).
But is it really the user database that should solve performance/accounting problems? Can't imagine this. What's about the forum software itself (with no attention to user management)? It is possible to tweak it or to increase its performance/lower resource consumption?

The board is not hosted on a dedicated server, as those things cost ALOT more than what I currently am paying.

Anyhow, according to what the SMF devs report (for what I've read), the board benefits quite significantly with the user database, mainly because of the high number of queries and records associated.

There are code level optimizations that can be implemented, like innodb, but for now this the best way to go. And besides, what's the point of the board having thousands of users just for show?

I tend to not login to just read.

Can you set the No-Login deadline to more than 6 months and still affect a significant # of inactive accounts?

I'll be glad to follow whatever guidelines this forum requires, your too valuable to me.

I would like to vote no. I do not post and most times do not log in, but there is such a vast amount of help i get from this board that I do check it everyday.
