Group Founders: Do you kick inactive group members?

I have been debating starting a private group on my own. Then it occurred to me, if you already run your own group, do you kick inactive members? Like those that join but don't ever contribute? Y/N. Thanks for any info.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] dazarobbo No, they may be readers.[/quote] This is exactly why I message them first and wait to see if they reply before doing anything.

  • Of course not. I have a group with 350 members, and probably about 300 of them inactive.

  • I'm far too lazy to invest that much time, however, there have been a few groups I've been a part of that easily had over a thousand members that we NEVER saw, and that's sorta bugged me. [Edited on 12.31.2012 12:46 AM PST]

  • I don't have a group, but I see it as a bad idea to remove them from the group.

  • It depends on how many people are in the group. I try to not kick people if there would be less than 100 members when I was done. Sometimes member count helps get new people in because the group appears to be a bit more active. Generslly I send a pm to people and give them a few weeks to respond before taking any actoin like kicking them.

  • Way too much trouble + no gain from doing it.

  • I'm still in a group that I created over 4 years ago, and I still to this day keep all the inactive members (which is within the 10-20 range because there's only a total of around 25 members). That group will forever live, no matter how dead we are!

  • No It's nice to see members that have not been around for a long time pop in and say hello every now and then. I have 1200+ in the group I run but I am lucky to get 10 posts from everyone in a week at this point in time.

  • That would involve kicking 124 people from my group with 2 active members, so no.

  • You won't be able to keep track of their activity

  • The idea that a group should worship activity above all else seems rather quaint...

  • No. At this point, that'd be more than 500 people I'd have to kick, which takes too much time. I am also sure that there are many users who do not appear to be active, but actually do lurk the forums frequently. There is no reason for [i]me[/i] to kick any inactive member, but that's just because of the function of my group. If your concern is exclusivity or prestige, then kicking inactives makes more sense.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Marathon [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] ChorrizoTapatio Well OP, you shouldn't kick inactive members. They may be busy with something else or maybe even just taking a break. You never know when members will come back to post.[/quote] Sorry I should have clarified, I'm talking like months on end with 0 posts. Like 4,5,6 months.[/quote] People may just be busy, OP. I know quite a few members here attend college and that is time-consuming. Some people also lurk in groups until they feel they are ready to post. There isn't really a need to kick inactive members. But, it is your group. If you feel that you should kick them, then do it.

  • I wouldn't kick inactive people. As the above said, you never know when that person might come back. He's not hurting anyone sitting there.

  • Well OP, you shouldn't kick inactive members. They may be busy with something else or maybe even just taking a break. You never know when members will come back to post. Also, if you're going to create a group try to think of a cool theme that will attract people. When you do create your group and you wish to advertise it, remember to post it [url=http://www.bungie.net/forums/topics.aspx?forumID=9]here[/url].
