A while back someone asked in here (I think) how long would we leave a member on our Team before removing for lack of contribution to the threads.

At the time, because I was new to the Team Leader's job and still full of the milk of human kindness, I was shocked, and trilled "Ooooh no, I would NEVER remove a member for that".

I've toughened up since then and the milk has gone sour. I will and have removed more than a dozen members.

The yardstick by which they are measured is whether or not they are failing to contribute to the Team room, as well as failing to appear on FT altogether.

I'm giving them six months. After that, they're removed. Another ten have been removed today. They haven't been seen on FT as far back as September last year.

The Team rooms are for fellowship, friendship and fun. They are not free parking zones.

Speaking of which - any chance to return the function that I can see more than the most 100 recently logged in members in the team list? I like to prune those who've not been seen for more than a year as well but can't since I only see the most recently active ones on the "list members" function, so I don't have a way to actually find those who need to be taken out.

Yep, I can do that Wes. Remind me of the URL that displays that list?

Is this going to happen soon? I, too, would like to see the whole list of team members. Perhaps the giant-sized teams could see theirs in pages, 100-250 members to a page.

Don't you just love Creedy's matter-of-fact, ruthless attitude? I do! Hahaha

Just repeating my earlier request to see the whole list of team members, and adding a new request: Can we send team mail TWICE a month instead of once a month? Say every 14 days or something similar? I understand the team mail was being abused for a little bit, but it would be nice to send something at the beginning of the month as well as mid-month for encouragement purposes. I'm currently stuck at mid-month with the 30 day thing.

I've removed quite a few people from my team for various reasons, mostly due to inactivity and lack of contribution. I also had to removed a player who started a team quiz but never submitted it, causing a lot of hard work for myself and other team members in regards to getting the quiz on-line. My team assistant and I recently agreed on a set of membership guidelines for players looking to join our team. Our other team members were informed of these guidelines before they were added to the latest recruitment message.

I also agree with the idea of Team Leaders being able to access full team lists so they can see exactly who's on the team.
