  • why does denying a member delete the user?

    I have a question.

    I have turned moderation for my forum on and I am haveing a problem when people register and they are denyied membership.

    I dont care so much that their username and all that info is deleted.. what I care about is with that the userID is deleted also.

    I dont know about the rest of you guys, but to me an out of sync userID and how many members the board actually has looks tacky.

    Why is it that if a user signs up and they get say userID=5 but they are denied membership.. and then someone else signs up and they are granted membership.. their userID is 6.

    Why cant it just use 5 if the old person was deleted.

    Because auto incriment is used, and it just continues to go up, personaly i wouldnt worry about it all that much
