    We currently have 48,000 odd members, how many of these have been online since the password change?

    Just interested as it says we have 2000 odd active. Will these inactive accounts be deleted?

    If you delete accounts, it makes earlier posts on threads difficult. I think the old users have to stay

    Put it this way, we regularly get over 70,000 visits per day now during the week, and just the other week broke the magic 2000 people on site at once barrier. As elsiegee40 pointed out, you can't simply delete inactive accounts as it destroys threads and sometimes breaks things horribly. Sometimes people join to ask a single question, get a reply, say thanks and leave. That's what we're here for. If they want to come back again later that is fine, and many do. Shaun can explain the regular visitor thing better than I can, but essentially it is a tally of regular members who come back regularly over a set period of time IIRC.
