You heard us right. Anyway, we're going through a cleanup of the member roster, as per the following section in the policies and guidelines document:
As administrators, we will run through a regular cleanup of the member roster, looking for inactive members and lurkers. When that happens, we'll post a announcement in the group with a deadline (typically a week after the announcement post). After that, we'll be looking at posts made between the time of the last announcement and the current deadline:
- If you haven't made a post in the employee roll-call thread, we'll remove you from the group immediately.
- If you have made a post previously, but haven't done a post between the last announcement and the current deadline, we'll remove posting access but keep you in the membership roll.
- If you haven't made a post between the last announcement and the current deadline, and you don't have posting access (likely because we removed posting access during the last round), we'll remove you from the group membership.
If you get removed due to inactivity, what do you need to do? Easy! Just reapply, and once we re-accept you, post! We'll put you back in, but keep your posting access off. Once we've received a post from you in our moderation queue, we'll reinstate posting access, and everything will be peachy.
Right. As this is the first member roster cleanup, we'll be looking at posts made from the time this community opened up, up until the deadline period, which will be Monday, 25th of April 2010.
