Did a bored admin screw with the user table or did the member count actually triple since I last checked?

If you made that observation you should also be able to observe which of those two cases is real.

Me think there's a bug somewhere.


Soapy (190) has a UID of 5726, Twinlet (178) has a UID of 15727.

Thanks for clearing that up Juju.

There might have been a spate of deleted accounts or something, that could account for it… Ten thousand accounts though? That's pretty extreme.

Didn't Arc accidentally delete all users once? Maybe that's the reason…

Didn't someone make thousands of accounts at one point?

Shortly before I re-arrived, someone made thousands of dupe accounts after being banned. auto-incrementation of the index means their legacy remains (and maybe their accounts if they haven't been removed yet).

Yeah it was a ton of duplicate accounts, but I improved the account verification system after it happened so that it wouldn't quite so easy.
