    Can anyone tell me how you can view all members on the forum? I can only see the first page of members and there doesn't seem to be any links to other pages.

    What purpose would there to be to list all members? How would that aid your discussions when the bulk of members never post?

    I was curious as the function used to be there (last time I was on here).

    What purpose is there in listing just 5 or 6 members in a section called "members"?

    The 5 or 6 are the members who are currently online and visible. There are also members who elect to not be visible while online.

    No, actually it's 20 members and they are the ones with the highest amount of posts. Why can't we see the full member list? We used to have this function.

    Any chance we can bring this feature back? Or is there a valid reason we can't have it anymore?

    I'm not sure that being able to see a full list of members ordered by, say, post number or join date would be a bad thing. Maybe this is something specific to the XenForo software. I don't know.

    You're right James.

    Taken from https://xenforo.com/community/threads/more-assorted-things.50098/:

    Notable members, member list disabled
    By default, the full members list page is now disabled. On larger boards, not only is it useless (and a spam magnet), it's actually a huge performance issue.

    The notable members page looks a bit like the standard members list page, but it shows people of note:
    • Most messages
    • Most likes received
    • Most trophy points
    • Today's birthdays
    • (Non-hidden) Staff members

    What's up with the trophy points?

    Don't think that feature is being used here, but might be in future! Personally, I'd prefer to see a members list return.
