An email was recently sent to all members of the forum who have not posted or logged in to the forum over the past year, requesting that if those members still wished to continue to be part of our community, to log in to the forum.   As from today, any members who did not respond to that email will automatically now be deemed as an inactive member and should they wish to join in again, will either have to use the 'Contact' form (down the bottom of the board) to request reactivation, or join again, afresh with a new username.

What about members who have changed their email address since they registered and never received that email telling them to log in. Will they still be made inactive?

Anyone who has not logged in to New LAL, even just once, since end of July 2017, the forum will now automatically deem that user to be an inactive member and render their account as inactive. 

All they have to do to stay an 'active' member - if they're interested in doing so - is to log in to the forum with their username at least once a year - even if they have no wish to post.

Thanks Candlelight.kk for reactivating my membership. Glad to be back in! thumb
Granted, I hardly ever post here but I do look in and read regularly and receive email notifications about new posts and topics. I look forward to these notifications and would hate for them to stop because my account had been deactivated!

I fear there may be others in the same boat who have also been deactivated this way and might feel similarly unappy about it.

btw I like the new thumb up like function that's been introduced on the forum to like a post ---- but need to say here,, if there was also a dislike thumb down one I would be clicking it for the OP subject here!

However I will make sure from now on to log in every once in a while, even if not to post, just to make sure I've not had the action knocked out of me. Mr. Green

Welcome back, Brin. very happy

As you and I have since discussed, the new LAL forum has been preset in such a way that it will automatically (robotically) now deactivate any member who hasn't logged in for a year, based on the [perhaps erroneous] assumption that the member is no longer interested or involved in any way. Of course, as you have pointed out, that may not be the case at all, where members may be regularly reading as guests and still interested in receiving new topic and post notifications and newsletters, etc.
Also, as Misty has pointed out, there may be members who have recently changed their email addresses and may not even be aware of the notification request to log in if they wish to remain as active members. So, yes, I am inclined to agree with you that this automatic thing is perhaps not such a good idea as I had originally thought.

I am really pleased to find that you are still interested in the forum - and to consider that there could be others in the same situation, something that I had not thought through when setting the action. Luckily, this action can be reversed in an instant, and that is precisely what I have now done. Consequently, this topic can be rendered redundant and placed in the archives.

I will leave this thread up here for another week, as explanation in case any other member has been affected by this not so bright idea geek - in which case, please (whether affected or not) do not hesitate to LOG IN and add your comments, replies and opinions here before we send it down into the dungeon.


Meanwhile, welcome back everyone wave and hey ... don't be shy, do come in to the forum and maybe join in with the posting once in a while, or perhaps just log in every now and then to let us at least know you are still around. thanks
