I would like to suggest that we remove non participating members. (those with a post count of zero and who have been members for longer that a month)
 

Anybody against this?

You will find that many people join when full of the rush of buying their "new" Forester, and want to be part of the  crowd, however, they are not necessarily "Forum type" people, and subsequently feel embarrassed to say anything around here, but will pop in to read what others have to say.

My niece's husband is case in point - he spends hours on the 4x4 forum every week, and yet he has yet to make his first post...he can tell you everything that has happened in that community in the past 2 months, and yet he remains unknown.

I guess what I am trying to say, is that non active members can be your biggest fans, and can spread the word.

Maybe a little questionnaire could be drawn up, asking them why they don't contribute in the nicest possible way....and then go from there...:)

Thanks Paul, you make a very valid point.

What about people that have not logged in for the last 3 months?
