Welcome AlanBurns

Hi

Welcome to the forum!
Pull up a chair, have a cup of tea, and introduce yourself.

Innit a shame when people go to the trouble of joining and yet don't join in.  

The cynical side of me thinks sometimes maybe it's for 'other' reasons . . . you know, to be able to read the 'private' conversations which can only be had and read by our participating members.  Or to use our PM facilities.  It's a bit rude to be a 'user' in this way, imho.  

My suggestion is that if people join and yet do not post within a set time (a week, two weeks, a month?) then the account is de-activated.

I agree with Ketty, and with her suggestion especially. A purge of non-active members would be no bad thing: the only point under discussion would be when to do it.

Why do people bother to join a forum if they aren't going to bother posting? The last seven members to register haven't made any posts!

On another site where I was Mod, we warned people that if they hadn't ever posted that accounts were going to be deleted, (as discrete from de-activated).  It amused me to see, within 24 hours of accounts being deleted, one 'member' rejoined even though they'd been part of the forum for years and yet never posted a word.  Clearly they didn't like not having access to the hidden boards when they were lurking, and didn't like not having access to PMs.   It's certainly rude to use the facilities and yet not participate.

Time for the Management to do a Stalin and have a brutal purge

I agree. I did do a purge of those who had never posted a while ago. But yes, will do another, clearing out those with very few posts or who haven't posted in a while.
