Maybe we should organise much more events on this forum and sometimes allow members to create their own micro-events (like small quizzes or something like that)/have them give useful suggestions. It's because, in my opinion, it's not only the "ghosts" who are constantly inactive. Rather, the past 3 months or so, everyone seemed to be inactive. It actually might make sense why, but still, I haven't seen any new minigame, for example. Maybe it's time for a change?
But like what I said before, it's quite hard to attract people to join these kinds of mini-games and perhaps, a small prize is required. But since the forum has been going quite bland, it is not to late to say "Hurry up and do something !!"
I used to ask for IP banning by tracking the IP address but it's not really effective as this kind of action may cause a severe IP banning in nation, so just deleting the previous/clone account really needs to be careful. Just a small mistake and the consequence is really unpredictable.
As José and Goombastar said, for sure making more activity by adding some extras would be the best option, since we can't really see what we can do ...
I'm having some ideas right now, nevertheless these options would take lot of time and need huge change of our forum. Let me tell the idea : Why not adding sections like :
- Music used / that can be used for MF games
- About graphics
- Useful and detailled notes to make decent games
- List of MF games ( With eventual classification, like "Best" / "Good" / "Awful" / "Copycat" / ETC ... )
- And of course ( ? ), have a aesthetical change of the website [ But that's another thread - Slight Off-topic ]
About the "no-guest access", it went me "zut" because sometimes I couldn't access to the forum for the erroneous interface, so I have to refresh many times to join in. About the activity rate, like I said before, quite a risky move because the rules mentioned "Only Moderators and Admins are allowed to hold the mini-events", so it's better to loose the rule about mini-events, but of course, it has to be under the admins & moderators' supervisor.
Giving the new section tabs, I only have to notify on the list of MF games, it should be careful on classifying games because it depends on many factors (I won't mention it as Goomba Star and Mariogeek, both have explained quite fully detailed).

Yes, they are needed. However, we should wait until a period of holiday, the summer, etc. for any major forum events.
It's usually June to start a holiday period, I think we can put June as default time to give a precise action on cleaning the forum.
Alright, in a very practical way, cleaning the forum can clean the clone and "dead" account, but if doing it alone, I'm afraid it's not pretty good. Therefore, a versatile action along with cleaning is highly recommended in my opinion.
