Let me get this straight. You want someone on here to tell you which people on our memberlist of 400,000+ are actually dead?
Why?
And how do you think we could even do that? Is someone going to make a final post saying by the way this is the last post I make because tomorrow I'll be 6 feet under?

Of course, there are always users who don't confirm registration, on purpose or just forget to, ... or the confirmation mail doesn't arrive.

edit: what i am meaning is a inactive accounts that will never be online forever
An inactive account can also be an account that hasn't been online (logged in) for a period defined by the founder (or anyone with the required permissions). The moment it logs in it's not an inactive account anymore.

What's the point of the question (if any)?

You only have to look at the memberlist and click the 'last active' column title.

Every site has people that either registered and never bothered to activate or found what they wanted and never came back.
You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post.

As per the template and /memberlist.php this column is only available to those having the u_viewonline permission. Either I don't have it (although being able to view /viewonline.php) or phpbb.com runs a slightly modified installation.

Up until now? Sure. Also "forever" in the future? Nobody can say that.

The u_viewonline permission corresponds to "Can view hidden online users" which registered users of this board do not have access to. The ability to view viewonline derives from the "Can view profiles, memberlist and online list" permission, which registered users have access to. We don't run modified permission schemes here. ;)
