Click on "My Portfolio"
When that page opens - look at the address bar at the top of your browser, you should see something like this .......

subtract one from that number and hit enter....

Have a look at the members portfolio page - you may find this true of people beginning with letter A for example.
500,000 (now nearly 600,000) is actually visitors, people looking at photos, content, news, clicking on ads etc not active members.

Good idea shame it's not working as well as you'd hoped. Maybe we need a filter. Show me next active neighbour?

@ Cheryl -

Quote:Obviously some people have no staying power, my neighbour in either direction is a blank portfolio

Ditto!! One didn't post anything and the other posted four images and hasn't been back for 5yrs!!

I think there's a point to be made from this exercise...

As only a handful of us on EPZ have tried looking at their nearest neighbour's work and found their nearest neighbour hasn't been active for a few years, shouldn't the staff at EPZ be sending out e-mails and seeing if these people are still interested in being a part of the site?

Send a friendly e-mail noting their account hasn't been used for x months/years and if they don't log in at some point soon they could have the account removed? If anything it might be a way to make more space for images by the active members? Just a thought...
