It's like deja vu all over again here. You may have noticed that we reduced the Care2 member count (see left side of homepage)  from nearly 13 million back down to 12.4 million members.curious dog

With so many members it's natural to have such obsolescence over time.   Have no fear, we're still growing rapidly... we just like to do periodic purges to keep the numbers in line with reality.  We've reduced the numbers by several million over the past couple of years alone (so this post may look familiar to you!)

Per our members' request, we won’t actually delete the old profiles, as they're not really causing any harm (they have near zero impact on site speed), and the hope is that some of these folks will come back over time.

If you have an old profile you'd like to remove, you can do that at anytime by logging into that account and using the delete account option.

As many of you have noticed, we recently reduce the # of members we display (at the top of our pages) by 500,000. We do this periodically to keep the number as "realistic" as possible... We reduced the number by 500,000 back in March as well.  With so many members it's natural to have such obsolescence over time.   Have no fear, we're still growing rapidly... people seem to like this healthy & sustainable living stuff...

Per our members' request, we're not going to actually delete the old profiles anymore, as they're not really causing any harm, and the hope is that some of these folks will come back over time. 

BTW, if you have an old profile you'd like to remove, you can do that at anytime by logging into that account and using your My Account "Edit Basics" profile setting option.
