    Lifespan of an inactive user.

    I was wondering how long a FORT member can remain a member if he/she hasn't either logged on or posted for awhile.

    Depends. If they have a valid e-mail address, then until I get around to purging them, which I haven't done yet, so maybe forever.

    If they don't have a valid e-mail address, and they haven't been here for a little while, then if they get an e-mail that bounces (for a PM, birthday, subscription e-mail, or whatever), I remove the account immediately.

    Modesty figured it out! Actually, I was deleting some old PMs and found that one person was no longer a member.

    Well, we delete users for other reasons, not just bad e-mail addresses. Rarely, but it happens.

    I was so addicted from the moment I started posting here that it's hard to believe there are people who only log on a couple of times and then leave forever
    Although it would be nice if the other member with my username would get purged so I could drop the 401 from my name

    I thought eldee was going to let us know how long we would live if we are inactive

    Well, he hasn't posted since around October so, maybe three months or so left to live. Don't worry though, I know first aid! I'll save you!

    It's true, SG....you ARE addicted!! I thought I was a pretty good contributor in here, but you have been a member 8 fewer months than me....and you have 4 times as many posts!! Eldee too! I guess you can consider me a veteran rookie compared to you two

    Nah, not everyone is a big blabber-mouth like me I'm doing better about lurking instead of saying every little thing that comes to mind though
