We are going to be making some changes to the site in the upcoming weeks and also doing some spring cleaning.
What this means is accounts over 1 month old with 0 posts will be considered inactive and therefore be deleted. If you have never posted on the site but wish to keep your current account then please log on the site and make a post, we had several great topics about the new 2005 solids.
We will be doing this type of cleaning every 6 months and it will begin next week on Sunday May, 22nd. If you do not post and your account gets deleted then please feel free to sign up again.

I third that emotion!
I know I read the posts for a few months before I personally posted anything, but once you start it is addicting, sort of like eBay but not as costly.
So come on everyone, if you would just posted one time think what interesting facts we could all learn about each other.

In the next week or so, we will be adding some new features and upgrades to the site. Some you will notice, some are behind the scenes. These changes will require more server resources so we figured it was a good time to do everything at once.
For those wondering, yes ... the "track my collection" feature will be returning!

Thank You, Jack! I'm glad to see the return of "Track Your Collection"

my son once said to me that this is a highly professional site and that it is a pity I make too little use of all the possibilities I had. I hope you don't mind...
What do you do with the member numbers, do we get new ones?
Thank you so much

The member numbers will remain the same when we prune the inactive accounts. You won't see any change.
Mimi and Martha-
You weren't supposed to notice that yet! It's working, but we are still working on a few more new features so you won't be able to add anything to your collection just yet. We'll be rolling everything out at once, hang in there...it won't be long now!

Is it correct to assume that on October 22, 2005, that will be the next time you will prune those accounts? Also, will you give an annoucement somewhere on the board letting members know when you will prune accounts?
Just curious. I feel this is a very good thing to do. Also what you two did to the board on May 15 looks great. Thanks a bunch.

Not sure when we will prune accounts next. It was long overdue!
This was the first time we did it and although I am getting some emails asking "why" accounts were deleted it is just a matter of space that we needed. We did lose a lot of members- half of them but when someone signs up two or three years ago and has 0 posts there is no way for us to tell if that account is still active or not and it holds up wasted space on our server.
To ensure your account stays active just post every now and then, this site is for everyone's opinions and we would like members to contribute and not just come a lurk. It's give and take.
We will always send out a mailer first to let everyone know what is going on. We do still have more coming...
