Ott-Motorcycles.ca longtime overdue cleanup

Please be advised,

We have made some significant cleanup. Any registered member that did not login for the past 3 years have been deleted. This cleanup is required when you have a Database the size that we have now. over 1000 members were deleted. This will also help speedup the database engine and make the website faster due to the reduction in database size.

If you have friends that have registered and never logged in, please advise them that their account will be deleted, and that they will need to re-register.

will not be locking the site.

Regards,

Nelson Pereira

If you force people to log in to view, you're going to scare away lots of new users. I assume most people lurk around on a site to see what it's like before signing up. Why do you want to lock it down for viewing?

Forced login to post, yes. We've had this for a while. What was under consideration was forced login to view the forum. I think Nelson made the right choice.
