Default Inactive Member Removal

Today over 1000 inactive members have been removed from this site. This includes members who did not post any photos/comments/forum messages etc, signed up over one year ago, and haven't logged on within the last six months. In the future these parameters may change as inactive members are removed.

Does it mean that their photos are deleted as well?
If so, I would suggest another option, since their posts, comments and so on are part of TrekEarth's history and growth.
I feel that suppressing these pictures would be like rewriting the past and altering the course of the present, which is far more than an endless race towards the future.
If you haven't done so, could you instead coin caracterize them as "iddle", for example, thus establising separate inventories for active and non-active members?
Disappearance is a loss for everyone, if everything is wiped out altogether...

Cleaning databases is a long and laborious task. Thanks for the constant improvement, Adam... ;-)

Only those members who did not post a photo, critique/comment or forum message have been removed. In addition, if they used the contact form or created a theme they were also not removed.

Oups! I read your first message too quickly and missed the "and" as you listed the criteria. I wrongly assumed it to be "or".
Nevertheless, the "iddle" status may be an interesting idea for future refining of the members database...
Keep on the good work, Adam. *o)

I'm not quite sure I understand your question. Anyway, those who have any forum posts will not automatically be removed.
