Whoa Whats Going On

Has anyone else seen a dramatic drop in their followers today, I had almost 200 followers and now I only have 35, Does this mean elitecodex has already started deleting old accounts or is this a glitch? For those of you who do not know about some of the changes that will be taking effect please go visit elitecodex and see about the newest updates.

On another note I see I have a few posts to read, So I will be going off to read them and see what you have all been up to and what interesting things you have to say. I am glad that we still have members here and that we will be getting new members in. I think having new members from around the world with stories to share will be a great way for us to learn a little bit more about whats going on, cause lets face it. Most of us avoid watching the news, as nine times out of ten it is all bad news.

I am definitely one of those who tend to avoid both watching and reading the news. I have to admit, though, I do have some concerns about the upcoming changes but we will just have to see how they play out.

I'll have to go see how many I lost. I only had 82 or so. I'm glad for the weeding, though. Makes no sense if they aren't going to contribute. Just taking up space. :) Maybe they'll come back around when they see "we" didn't go anywhere, simply a wee lil bump ;)

Ummmm OK so perhaps I'm not awake today - but I can't find the number of followers anywhere - wasn't it on the profile???

DOH! OK so I found it!

Huh. I didn't lose any. YAY :) I actually gained one, lol :) I think, because I really only just got here, that I missed out on some of the older folks?

#SimeyC - On your "Recent Activity" page, to the right, you'll see your follower folks :) GOOD MORNING to you :)

I didn't notice but maybe I better check

Interesting... I actually didn't remove anyone yet. We did send out a mass of emails yesterday telling everyone that it was coming up (for those who hadn't logged in for a while) but no actual accounts have been removed (yet).

More than half of those people who were following, were not even active as from the 10th. So no idea whats going on elitecodex

I hadn't noticed a drop in followers, but if those are effectively dead accounts with no posts, no great loss. If it means room for more members to join, that's EXCELLENT news.

That seems like a pretty big drop, especially as I would expect most users to follow the mods so they won't miss any news. I have 90 followers; I would expect you to have at least that many. Maybe it is a glitch. Maybe a lot of newer members didn't think to connect with you. I imagine that my list will dwindle over time too, but as I haven't been here that long yet all my followers have fairly recent logins. I suppose once I hit that two-week mark in a few days, some of my inactive followers will start to drop off the list....

I think it's the notifications going back to just one week ago instead of from the time we first joined. I just checked mine and it went down, too. But I also checked the other sections of the notifications and noticed that everything was from one week back.
