Dear Members

These past few weeks have been hard here on Care2 even on Broadband. I feel sorry for members on Dialup. This petition I created is asking Care2 to remove old dormant and never used Profiles. This will free up space on Care2 and we can load our pages faster if there are only true members Profiles here.

Did you know that some people only join c2 in order to click and send e-cards? Nonetheless, a profile is created. It's not a fake one, even though it had no info on it except for the person's name. They might not even be aware that there is a profile. As for the site speed, I don't think it has anything to do with the dormant profiles.

They still show up as being active by their clicks on their Profile page. Yes the bigger the site the longer it takes to load and the servers on Care2 cannot cope unless they add more servers. It is using useless bandwidth also. I have also reworded the petition to not remove members who have been here and deceased such as Agnes Corbett as members still put comments on her profile and forward to her inbox.
Hope that explains it a bit more. xx

The speed of the site does not have anything to do with how many people you have on it...just look at all the other top sites...they are doing just fine. If you dont want alot of people on your site, then why did it get created? So what if people just get on here for the least they ARE USING THIS SITE. You should be THANKFULL that this site is doing so well. "NOTED"

I too, agree that the Care2 site is not user friendly and could stand to be much quicker as far as processing time is concerned.

I have been wanting this done for awhile, also the groups that is just sitting there and no posts in years and all the petitions where the deadline was years ago.
Thanks for speaking up Ali. It's time care2 clean up all the useless profiles and I feel once these 'empty' profiles are cleared out some of our 'trolls' will be also.

I deleted one very old one, now that I have been suspended I should have kept it.

I don't like the idea of a computer deciding if people on my friends list at Care2 are worthy of being members. Individuals that are bothered by inactive users can delete friends on their own page if they wish.

The profiles I am talking about are the ones that have never been used...those who use them for Clicks still show up as being used, the same as those who sign petitions.
