New Members : Please Read : Account Deletion

Welcome to the TAZ! :D

This is a non-commercial forum...as such we delete all spam accounts and inactive accounts...in order to maintain a ' truer active user ' member base.

So...you will not see huge member stats here...as there is no commercial interest in keeping accounts that are inactive or spurious.

Spam accounts are actively deleted.

Accounts that are more than 6 months old who have never posted are actively deleted.

If you are a lurker, have never posted, and your account is more than 6 months old, please notify us in this thread that you are lurking...or your account may be inadvertently deleted.

Posting in this thread will preserve your account as we do not delete legitimate accounts that have posted at least once.

If your account has been deleted you are more than welcome to sign back up...we apologize if this is in any way an inconvenience however it is necessary to maintain a truer active user base...and to prevent the return of undeliverable mail.

Thank-you,

Eg

I will be starting this in a day or two
some accounts will be left
but they will be of people we are aware of, and can contact to see if they wish to maintain their presence here
apart from those
all accounts are fair game

first to go will be the ones that didn't activate their accounts
then activated accounts with zero posts
I will keep a thread with details of those removed so we can see if anyone DOES re-join ...........

just to update and bump, as we have just had a new member post an intro here :)

will lock this thread
but the accounts ARE checked regularly
and we DO delete
we do not need / require accounts that are from spammers or non contributing troublemakers

we support the site ourselves
ad revenue, whilst nice, is NOT an imperitive for us here, unless we get a LOT of moolah :hysterical:
