    Whats happening with the CS member count?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Ive recently noticed that the count of registered members on CoffeeSnobs has been decreasing?
    Ive been keeping note of the member count as it creeps towards 5000, which signifies the closure of the 5000th Member Contest.. Yesterday morning the count was at 4926, then when I looked down at it last night it was down to 4865? And now its at 4848? Are accounts being deleted for some reason? :-?

    Geez, it is going down. I remember the count being around 4900 a day or two ago. Hmm...? Im sure there is a reason for it and the mods will fill us in. Perhaps ppl are signing up and not confirming their accounts.

    This is correct. There has been some pruning of some very old inactive and phantom accounts.

    Andy will no doubt elaborate in due course.

    Stay tuned ;)

    Yeah, thats pretty much it 2mcm.

    A whole lot of accounts back in 2004 where people hadnt logged-in and/or never posted a message were "pruned". There were also some test accounts and similar in that lot too.

    There will be some more pruning when I send the next BeanBay heads-up email.

    When I send it each month there is a pile of emails that bounce back (people changed addresses etc) so Ill also remove those accounts so our 5000 member number is a true reflection of members with current (and real) email addresses.

    It wont take long to catch-up again.

    After the beanbay newsletter last night I went through the bounced messages and removed the accounts that no longer have a working email address (but I did leave the ones that bounced due to being over-quota). So that was about 72 removed accounts in total.

    So the real membership number is: 4837

    Roll-on 5000!!
