Great to have you back ChristineR! Congratulations for self-publishing your first book. It's a huge job so well done for tackling it by yourself.

All the best for the second book in your series.

Hi, good to see you back It feels great to have that first book published doesn't it.

The only thing I felt even better about was when I went to CreateSpace and produced a print version of my first. Wow to hold that 'REAL' book in the hand is something!

Hope to see you on the Forum regularly.

I can see some merit in removing members who have 0 posts after a period of time. How many of them do we have?

PGB it's so good to see you have a supporter for removals in Imunch, but then again not too surprising!

I began here as Discreet Author. Many times over the years, I returned until I finally forgot my password. At that point, I made a new profile and when it was discovered my old profile was deleted. I found that unfortunate as the history of my identity here was simply scrubbed. Personally, it is very seldom I find anything of benefit here in terms of writing knowledge or access, however, it is a themed procrastination to me that satiates my needs. I've worked as an author, professionally, for a good twenty years and I recognise that is not the story that brings everyone here. I do believe though, that old members should be welcomed back warmly; especially give the high turnover of new members. The before mentioned strategy seems a very effective way to control growth but loyalty to old members will have the opposite effect in my view.

(h5) I've never seen a reason to cancel a membership because a member hasn't posted, or not posted for a long time. This forum has a massive archive of valuable information to assist any writer or potential writer who for whatever reason, has not yet posted.

And yes, welcome back Furtive Wordsmith! (h5)
