If they don't log, how long before PT kicks them out?

I have created a new group - Women 30+. There are some members that have joined, but never log anything. How long before PT kicks them off the site? I really need the motivation of the blogging.

Join another group

You can log without anyone else.

If one is in a public group and hasn't commented or logged for 7 days, the system removes them from the group. You can join as many groups and teams as you like which I highly encourage. In public teams, members are not removed by the system.

Do you mean log the foods or just make comments? I'm a part of several groups just for this same reason.

That doesn't make any sense that you just have to log on. I doubt that's true.

YES, just logging in is enough. They do NOT have to log!

I guess it is true -- that even if a member doesn't log comments or diet/exercise entries, they will not get kicked off PT. I have several members in one of my teams that has not logged anything since July. Does this mean they are logging in but not entering any info? Is there any way to tell the last time they logged in?

PT doesn't remove members from TEAMS only GROUPS.

The vote went out to the community in an earlier thread.

Rules are always open for change.

- PT

I think there's a big difference between PT users who go on a 3-week vacation and are accidentally removed, or PT users who have the inlaws arrive suddenly and end up being removed from a group because they're offline for more than a week and the INCREDIBLY FRUSTRATING new users who join PT groups and then never make a profile or log in again.

I am in a couple of groups where the "4th spot" has cycled, and I groan every time a brand-new PT user with no profile joins. They NEVER log in again, and we're stuck with them taking up the space for a week. Is there a way to remove those people in less than a week? I'm sure they think it's a cool idea and then change their minds and never visit PT again, without even thinking about how they inconvenience the rest of us.

I agree w/the above, this would make people step up and participate.
