When I upgraded the forum, I did a massive users cleanup.
There were still remaining spam accounts, most of them publicly displayed advertising URLs in their profile, and I just got rid of 8200 of such accounts.
The cleanup should be safe, but just in case, if you encounter possibly related issues when using the forum in the following hours/days, please notify me.
But again, that shouldn’t happen, I’m just being extra careful.
Fun fact: on 180000 accounts, only 13500 are actually legit or active users .
166500 accounts were either spam or unused accounts (never posted anything).
