Annual Forum Cleanup - 0 post users read this

Edit February 2020.

The post count updating issue mentioned below has been sorted out and the first clean up of 0 post users has occurred.
From now on every January we'll delete any 0 post users who have joined more than a year ago.
There are plenty of threads to post and say hello. Here for example:

Original text below
There are currently 23477 users registered who have made 0 posts.
That's a lot of people clogging up the user list and database!

Thanks to the lovely new forum software we can now do block user deletions.
So, during the first weekend of February, I am going to delete all 0 post users who registered on the forum prior to 1st January 2019

If you are in that category and wish to keep your account, you need to make one post by the end of January.
There's a thread here that you can do it in if you wish:

Don't say you weren't warned!

Is the zero post count trustworthy? In the "Site Migration Completed" thread, go to December 27 (page 11) and look at user "evil primeval" just above my post. It says they have zero posts, but obviously they made at least one post in that thread!

That is odd. I ran the Resync Post Count operation and that user is still showing zero posts.
But clicking on the zero does shoe his one post.

I'll take a look at the DB and see if I can find out what is stuck
