Inactive users will be dowgraded
#1
Dear all civilea users.
As you know we do not deactivate users that regustered and have minimum activity in forum. They used forum feature free for more than 3 years. 
Our policy is active user can use forum free and others need to pay to use forum.
At this stage we decided to deativate registered users that have not enough activity recently.
Be informed that activity is not mean useless posts so useless post lead to be ban rapidly.

We want to inform you by this post all inactive registered users that have not bought subscription plan yet will be downgraded to awaiting activation group soon.
I note that donors and subscriber are not included this action.

Dear Administrator, moderators,

Will the inactive users get a warning first? I suggest having an automated warning to members when they have reached an inactive stage of their membership.
How do we define inactive anyway? Recently I've noticed that people asks the same questions that was asked long time ago, thus, wouldn't bother replying again.

Thanks

Cheers
Ernesto

hello
we do not can explain more regarding recent activity and enough activity, since last time that we explain it many users start to sending useless posts in forum,
but as we said in forum we are looking to good activity that means having useful posts, reply in requests section and totally having positive distribution in forum.

No, this topic is common warning to all users that are not active in forum,
inactivity is define having no or few positive activity during registration time and during last year.
positive activity is mean having good participate in forum.

I want to remind all members that all inactive members (Subscriber members are excluded) will be downgraded to "awaiting activation" group and they will need to pay subscription fee if they want use forum again.
Our first priority is activity of users and if they want to continue using forum free without paying subscription fee they shall have useful activity. I note that activity by posting useless post lead to banning and all of you know that what is useful activity in CivilEA.

I want to add a more detailed expalantion.

This is my opinion and as usual we the staff will decide together after studying the issue.


1. Many years ago, we decided to downgrade users with less than 5 posts. Every user with still a lower number of posts after surviving and continuing after so many years to do nothing will be downgraded.

2. Some users have many posts but all or almost all are requests or problems. I think that everyone (mainly the users receiving a lot from others) can sometimes to post a new link or to answer to a request of another. So even if you have 50-60 posts you can be downgraded (I know one with 164 counted posts, 6.5 years in forum, 99% are requests and his problems but he saw himself as a moderator candidate). The same users with many posts but inactive for years (I saw one with the last post dated somewhere in 2011 and with about 50 posts before) are candidates for downgrading.

3. We have a new warning for useless posts so don't flood the forum with posts only for not be downgraded. Old and inactive users beginning to post only for posting will be banned without warnings. We don't like spammers but I like to ban they. You want to be inactive, is your right but or you leave the forum or you become a subscriber.

4. Why? I gave this answer to same users in the past. We are a forum and not a store and of course not a social aid organization where people take free and return home. A forum (especially an engineering forum) is a place where engineers communicate and help each other. Not all engineering forums are the same and if you want I will give you the URL of others where you can register and you can do nothing.
