mb its because people need to wait 10 – 20 minutes untill the account is active for ingame use?
and arent there user accounts since the past years or did you wipe them? maybe you build some database query and sort them by “last login” or something like that!
If someone doesn’t want to wait 10 – 20 mins to play on the server, he would probably not even stay for 10 mins on it. This is our 3rd forum and unfortunately the old forum posts & users aren’t compatible with the new forums, plus we had lots of bot attacks, so we had to start fresh. We still have both of our old forums as archives, so I might consider making an “Archive” section where all the old posts will be.
