1000+ users de-registered?
Iirc the forum had over 7000 registered users last time I looked, probably less than a week ago.

So I'm just curious as to why there are only 5830 users today?

It's a bit hard to see how zero-posters could be spammers Laughing

The accounts that were removed were mainly the ones that registered long time ago but never even logged in. For some reason there were many of them accumulated.

As for the zero-posters, you might have been misled by the fact that they do not show up in the "Members list". Note that it only shows about 3200 users - these are the ones that posted at least once.

Also, it is not necessary to post in order to learn stuff.
Just reading posts of others will do fine.
But, yes, to contribute - one needs to post.

So well under half of the original 7000 users have ever posted anything! So since we still have 5800+ users, assumiing all the zero-posters are gone, there must still be at least 2600 terrorists in our midst, all of whom have posted something Shocked I'm not one of them, honest, you've gotta believe me... pleeeze don't delete me! Confused

As spammers and terrorists now know about T.G.'s criteria for account removal, they will think of some workarounds pretty soon. Bots can register, logout, login, and logout really fast!

The board does. If you look at the home page it tells when was the last time you visited.

I can still recover that information from the database backups. Let me check... The timestamp of your last visit was 1470608852.

This board has been up for 13 years, right? How crusty does the database get in that time?

Suggestion: how about changing the forum title from "flat assembler" to FLAT ASSEMBLER to make it look more official and catchy? Try it for a day or two and see how other members would react to it.
