Update about the total members count...

For anyone who is following the number of registered members here at DV Info Net, you may have noticed that just recently it was over 20,000 but now it's suddenly down to 19,600. That's because we're clearing out some inactive accounts belonging to folks who haven't visted in awhile with post counts of zero. You'll see our total members count waver up and down a little over the next several months as this process of clearing out inactive accounts will continue. Thanks,

Chris,

Just adds integrity and credibility to the forum. I applaud your honesty in the way this forum is run and maintained!

Kinda like the new look too! Miss the HOME button though!?!?!? Good Luck!

Mike

Chris, I'm sure this is an abused question..but is there a possibility of jpg (embedded) attachments in the forum's future?

Anhar -- mouse over your name on the left hand side, and you should see (depending on which browser you're using) something like dvinfo.net/conf/member.php?u=7096 -- that's your dog tag.

Steven -- Split personalities each count as half. Quadrophenics count 1/4 each.

At DV Info Net, you're not just a number! Welcome back, Member #7096.

This is neat! On my browser I had to right click on my name and hit properties. By the way, you are #3 Chris! This is your place, who beat you in the web people? Thanks Chris.

Hey, what about the Seven Faces of Eve? Ok, that's 100 divided by 7, oh never mind!

Mike

User number 1 was a test account which has long since been deleted. User number 2 is our own Jeff Kramer, he's our webmaster who stokes the fires which keep the server chugging along. Most of the other single-digit member numbers were other tests and/or deleted accounts, but number 9 is still with us today... contributor Francesco Marano. He joined on Sep. 7th, 2001 (one of the very few pre-9/11 members we have), and has visited again just today. In fact I oughta throw him some swag for that.

Once again, clearing out some dead accounts... that's why the Total Members number will continue to waver around 20,000 plus or minus for awhile. I'm ditching a few hundred at a time, so don't be alarmed if you see an occasional drop in our membership. Just cleaning out the skeletons is all...

I'm still here.

And by the way, can the number 1# postion be purchased. I'm asking for a friend, my ego has nothing to do with it. :}

Sure. Make me an offer. Tell your friend the highest post count can be bought as well. Just let me know what it's worth to you... er, your friend rather.

Once again... just nuked about 600 dead accounts, pruning out those who have not visited in over 1,000 days (going back to 2002 to 2003).
