Not a Bug Forum Statistics: 'Members' is showing wrong.

    Hey all,

    Now, in the forum statistics is standing:
    It says there are 969 members, but if you look at Reagormedia's profile number, it is 1000.

    Is this a bug or is this something that's supposed to be? :)

    1000 id's - 969 mebers = 31 deleted user ;)

    I'm not convinced about that :)

    And your calculation is wrong. You cannot do 'ID - Members', it has to be 'X Members - Y Members' :)

    It is not 31 deleted users but 31 deleted OR unverified users...

    The member count doesn't count unverified users, or those who are banned.

    Yep, I believe it's this.

    That was something a lot of people wished vBulletin did; count users ho were actually verified, not simply signed up. So while a lot of people signed up their accounts were counted even though they did not activate their account, and some administrators pruned users with 0 posts or who never verified their email.

    It gives you a more true number. :)

    Are banned users displayed in any cases?

    Yep, but most of the time with a striketrough in their name or/and 'BANNED' under their name :)

    I though the distinction between number of users and user number was standard.
    phpBB does it exactly the same way (unverified users aren't counted), surprised to hear that vB doesn't.

    If a user registers and you ban him/her straight away... does (s)he still show in the Latest Member area?

    Ban or delete?
    Temp ban or permanent* ban?

    *Permanent in the sense that the ban remains in place until it is lifted.

    Either. If you have to ban a member it shouldn't display... gives your community a bad reputation.
