#4517 closed defect (bug) (no action required)

New users aren't showing until they post something

I believe that this may be a bug with buddypress. I have recently noticed that I have had new users sign up, but they don't show up in the Members directory until they post something.

It seems that without any activity at all, the users do not display as having signed up. This makes it hard for me to friend them and prompt them into activity.

Also, I had a plugin change the ID # of my admin account. Now, the count for my friends is off.

My site is located at

This is by design. Users are not shown in Members directories until their last_activity key is set. This happens the first time they log into the site. The goal is to avoid showing users who sign up but never successfully log in (such as spambots).
