In order to streamline things, I also deactivated anyone who hasn’t logged in since 2015-1-1.
We found 27 active and known spammer accounts on the forum that were also deleted.
If any of these inactive accounts were you, I can reactivate you if you like before 2024-1-1 after which you will be permanently deleted.
If any of the identified spammers from other forums were you, then, see ya.

As an administrator of a phpBB forum too I just delete all accounts which have not logged in in the last 6 months. I do not like to have skeletons in the cellar because with the time they convert into Romadour's and start to stink ...
