    I just keep them for the member count, not like they're doing any harm.

    Same here, keep them, email them occasionally, hope they appear from time to time.

    Most boards automatically email them once their account is inactive, or there is a mod available to do it. I think it's stupid to delete them thought because it makes your forum look better with more members.

    I keep them, and maybe once every four months we Email all the members who have not been on for a month about our updates, what you can do with us, contests ect. to make them want to come back. But otherwise I do not delete them because there is not point in doing so, because they may come back.

    I don't see the point in deleting members with zero posts, either. They don't really cause much bloat in the database, so what's the point?

    Usually if i have a forum with some inactive members I just ignore it and continue on there is no real point in deleting accounts.

    I keep them, not only you have more in the memberslist and they may come back. Just send out monthly emails to everybody who hasnt posted, or to everybody.

    Wouldn't delete them for two reasons.



    1. I know some people end up leaving a board for a few months (something I myself do) and I'm sure they would be pissed off if they came back and saw their account has been deleted.



    2. It's a waste of time looking at all your users and checking old accounts to delete, doesn't help your board and there are more productive things to be doing.

    Members with 0 posts? I hate them, but keep them because it makes the site look better with more members. Usually people don't check how many posts members have, so therefore it's not too bad.
