    Server data to cause lag?

    Networking isn't really my thing so I'm just guessing here.
    Just follow me on this and correct me if I'm wrong.

    A server has to process all of the called data and the called data is what gets sent to your browser while you browse your website, this page.
    The more data you have on this server, the slower it gets, right?

    So, to my understanding you are against removing old users that isn't active anymore. Lets call them dormant.
    These dormant accounts take up unnecessary space now doesn't it? Doesn't it cause a degree of lag?

    My idea was, since you don't like the idea of removing "users". What I define a user to be is that they have been on the forum and maybe at least have posted one post at one point, or pressed like. (Possibly being logged in within a few years of span?)

    So these un-activated users that hasn't even logged in once, shouldn't they be able to be removed or at least archived so that you free up some space, latency and names for people that might actually want to use them. A good example of archiving is giving them their profileID as a name and moving them off the server and maybe re-instating them if so happens someone DO actually want to log in.

    This is my idea to maybe "optimize" MPGH a little bit, but then again, this is all just theoretical I know nothing of behind the works here.
    I bring this up mainly because it's almost impossible to browse MPGH without spending all of your surf-time on your cellphone and because I have wanted to change my name quite a few times but each and every single time I come up with a name that's fitting for me and my personality some in-active user took it back in 2009 and hasn't been active since, most of the time they haven't even been activated at all and has NEVER been logged on.

    Thanks for reading, is this a possibility or am I way off how this network could be working?

    In short you ask:

    The more stuff on MPGH, the slower it will become?


    Yes and no.
    It all depends on what sort of data and how it's sorted out.

    If it's "nooby" stuff it will become slower. But I don't think Dave has done such a thing


    Think of it like this:
    Your browser stores images and some other shit on your computer. (appdata)
    This allowes the server to "drop" the sending of those things making it "faster" for you as a user to recisive just the text content and not all the formating etc.

    That was basically my question yes, yeah I'm also aware of the "cache" that's stored locally after one load, but that's kind of cleared out a lot by quite a few users.
    I still think that they should clear up the users to free up usernames in any case.

    Welcome back, I haven't seen you in quite some time and a spontaneous question, isn't it quite about time to have new TM's elected?

    Would you mind elaborating on that?

    It would mean their posts would be removed and some possible contact information you could use.
    I'm also sure people would dislike that old friends was to be removed due to not being active. Or having problems with their life but they do come back after some years.


    But I do agree that there should be some:

    If your account is inactive for 2 years and you got no posts/threads/PMs/VMs it will be removed. (To allow others to use the name)
    [Accept|Decline]


    But still... I don't think you would like to have your favorite artist name changed, to free the name for someone else to use
    (After death OFC, or stopping with music)

    But in reality they wouldn't be removed, only archived and moved.
    So they are still there but they'll have to request a re-activation of the account.

    Having an artistname changed isn't quite the same thing as a username though.

    It sort of is.
    People do remember you as "that" person. Not as Mr.Pizza, or any other name.

    It's the same as people use lol instead of typing the word. What would happen if we all started to say that lol actually meant something else.
    And some person saying: lol, you're so funny. (But now lol means 'lady on land')


    Tho, I don't expect you to understand my point. Nor do I expect anyone to do
    (Cuz I'm some strange person here )
