Default Inactive members ??? Old names ???

Just an odd thought. Some posts, mainly the "stickies", show user names that don't appear to have been active in the relatively short time I've been here. Out of idle curiosity I chose two at random, Old_John_McKenna and putasolutions.

The first of those two shows a join date of January 2004 and a total of 7,156 posts.

The second one apparently joined in May 2003 and shows 12,901 posts.

Where are these people? Are they still here under different names? Have they left? There don't seem to be many people here and participating, though I see "millions" of names listed more or less alphabetically in the Members List.

I suppose I'm just being nosy, but imho it would be helpful if the date of each member's most recent post could be included. If nothing else, it might help to identify information that could be out-of-date.

Just a suggestion.

Thanks for that, Peru. Is John still posting though? I haven't noticed him anywhere, and he's only shown as having 112 posts since May 2016, whereas I've got 196 since last October (probably 197 now).

Not complaining or criticising, just asking.

If you click on a member's name, then on 'Find all posts by xxxx', you'll see when that member made his/her most recent post. At the time of writing, your most recent post was made today at 19:17! You can get the same info by viewing a person's Public Profile.

'Stickies' usually have useful information which remains in force indefinitely, regardless of whether or not the poster is still posting here.
