Re: Read-only forum / keep user names?
You both ask very reasonable questions
Basically, my forum is such that people tend to sign up just to ask 1 question and disappear. So over the years it has amassed about 700 users with 1-2 posts, tops.
My current setup is pretty much a mirror of the old forum (it’s at my site at /bbpress if you want to see the design in progress), which can of course work fine, but being the anal type I was thinking of starting this forum with a “clean slate”, as it were. Maybe 2-3 users would be returning and bear the burden of re-registering.
But I guess I’ll leave it be. As new posts come in the old ones will “flush” off the front page anyway. Thanks for the insights.
