You can auto prune old inactive members.

I PM'd David about this quite some time ago, & firstly out of that 20,000, only about 6000 are regular posters, that's a fact, why aren't those on the list that have either made absolutely no posts or just one or two deleted?, because of the time factor involved to trawl through the lot, deleting each one seperately, the same goes for the inappropriate names, & the fault there is that when they join it's an auto system, so they're not picked up, mods, if those members do post, usually spot it, & give the member a chance to change his username, some do so, those that don't are very quickly given the boot, does that answer your query?

Having all those inactive accounts just inflates the size of the database making it harder to maintain, you said it was 30GB but you might shave off quite a bit by trashing old accounts that never post anything.

Im not saying you definitely will save space but its worth a look and a smaller database is easier to back up and less likely to corrupt due to decreased member data

delete any account with 0 posts would be good. they get 48 hours to make the post, then the account is deleted, and all spammer accounts are deleted too. that would help the db.
