hmmm......sticky situation....I have thought a lot about this discussion and see valid points made by both sides.
I do know for myself, real life hit my family last year and I wasn't as active as in times past. My wife ended up having to leave the workforce because her illness. Now that being said, I am on the other side of the coin and things have somewhat improved.
I am just tore on where we draw the line on memberships. Do we remove the gold or silver status from members? I would hope not because of the time it takes to achieve the current status. Heaven forbid if we even considered dropping an Ambassadors status down.
What does trouble me are the flybys. For instance, when an contest is posted and we see someone join for that and they never return. It would be nice to purge the database on that.
Maybe below silver status and purge after a year? This would clear up some of the issues.
Just food for thought.
