The amount of abandoned accounts here is crazy

On any platform just seeing all these abandonded / inactive accounts is weird, knowing that these were all people but then suddenly disappeared. Who knows what happened to them. Recently a big disappearance was Bigmuscle, who was last seen in July 2020. Hope he comes back soon in good health. What do you guys think of when you see inactive / abandonded accounts?

This site is almost 20 years old, it is not that surprising. There are many accounts that I have made on other forums and not gone back to. There is not enough time in the day to be posting on forums, especially as you get older. Times change and people do different things.

I registered here because of Big Muscle's Aero Glass. That was 6 years ago! Seems so distant now. It's enough time to notice some people seemingly disappearing and some new ones appearing. There are also lurkers lurking in the shadows, some present for a long time, others less.

This is my 3rd or 4th account here that I can think of, spanning 10-15 years, don't really recall.

The first one or two was because I landed here from a Google Search and simply needed to download somebody's attachment.

I did not think I'd return after getting the attachment that brought me here in the first place (slipstreaming XP is what originally brought me here, I think).

Then months pass and another Google Search landed me here, no clue of the previous account so I registered again.

Then more months pass, account forgotten, don't even have the email address I registered under anymore, so I registered again.

It wasn't untl XP hit end-of-life, tried the POS updates, apps were broken, reinstalled WITHOUT the POS, then needed a browser for XP that I landed here "permanently".

JFYI, 0-posting accounts left inactive for at least one year get culled periodically. Y'all wouldn't believe how many accounts we'd have now, if not for that. :yes:
