Private (=closed) groups

small clean-up of database by unblocking old and never used profile names

There are currently about 1200 profiles, that never confirmed their registration.

These profiles should be deleted after a certain period. The original idea of the BoD was 1 year, shevek proposed 1 to 3 months. He can set the status of these profiles to 'ask to leave'. Profiles with that status are physically erased in an annual routine. Needs further discussion, als with respect to those members, who asked themselves for their profile to be deleted.

The meeting ended at 21.15

Next Meeting: December 10th
