It’s probably my fault because I just screwed something up with our new admin panel. We prune users regularly, but what is supposed to get removed are
a) people who have registered but never activated their accounts,
b) people who haven’t logged in in over a year, and
c) people who have less than one post in a thousand days…
When I clicked on the remove users with less than one post in a thousand days, only one account (created by admin, named “test”) was supposed to have been deleted. I was unpleasantly surprised to realize that when I clicked the prune user function, some 489 accounts were affected. :help: I believe that most of them were reasonably inactive accounts, but I have already discovered at least one account (belonging to a friend of mine - sorry Timogan!) that deleted by error.
The only solution is to re-register. My deepest apologies, and I’ll take extra steps in the future to ensure that this doesn’t happen again. Thanks for your understanding.
