JMich: Could it be that we have people with Steam accounts in the group that do not have a Steamgifts account? Probably people from the older groups, before linking to the Steam Gifts profile became mandatory.
If that is the case (and I don't know if it is), then we have 100´+ members who have never entered or created a giveaway. Sounds like dead weight to me.

The possibility of that happening may be high, after all, during the "v1" and "v2" times of this group there was a really lack of control over the members and the group in general, unfortunately (during that time I didn't even know what SteamGifts was about and only asked to be a member just because the good old Ian invited me after explaining to me what SG really was (:P), and that was long after "v3" was created. But when this "v3" started all the members from the past were automatically added to the new "v3" without any type of requirement, control, or check... total chaos ¬_¬). It has taken a long time to get it in better shape... LOL (^_^)

I will take a look at it when I have the time. It should be easy with the Enhanced Steam plugin with the option to show links to SteamGifts profiles (when an user doesn't have a SG account, the SG redirects to the main page instead), although it will take some time and patience to go through the whole list of members... (–_–). If I find members in the group without a SteamGifts account, I will confirm first with LiquidSnake before doing anything, but I personally think that having members without a SG account is really pointless for a group like this one, and should be removed. But as I said, I will ask first what "the boss" has to say before doing anything, if I find something.

Sounds good to me, I know I've wondered about the member count difference myself, but figured it was just a display issue. I didn't think about the earlier versions of the group not having as many controls on membership. In my opinion though, those members shouldn't be banned, just removed for reason of inactivity.

Also in regards to the earlier post about making new threads or continuing with current threads for the group with the limitations to changes, I think making new threads is probably the best way to go.
