It happens every year here around christmas.
People that haven't logged in for 9 months will turn up the weeks during and after xmas then leave again without posting, or will talk about how they are "getting back into mugen" or "want to make a full game again" but will eventually realise the reality of that never happening and quit again till the next christmas holiday.

Then alot of new members will register just to access a link that requires an account to view and leave without posting or even registering an account properly.

Mid year Update:

As of 1st June 2021, The average number of monthly forum visitors (both registered and unregistered) ranges from approx 300-2000.
The number of monthly new registered accounts ranges from 30-100.
The average number of spam/incorrectly registered/bots/inactive/lurker accounts with 0 forum activity deleted monthly, range from 30-60.

In summary, 65%-70% of new registered accounts are still being auto-purged every 200-250 days.

We have increased the registration requirements for new members to try and reduce the moderation work required in pruning inactive/lurker/spam bot accounts.

Despite our T&Cs and preregistration disclaimers, 40% of all deleted accounts are foreign language accounts.
To further emphasize our rules regarding language usage, we have added additional mandatory fields to the registration process.

We have also increased security filters to block certain VPN/Spam email service providers to reduce bots and spam accs.

We project the increased security and registration requirements will reduce spam/incorrect account registration from June on wards by at least 30%.
