Well if anyone can find the posts of "I resign my everything/accreditation" for some of these users, post em.  We'll mark em as expired.  As for Commoners (myself included) - the purpose was originally for them to get press accreditation so they could take news related pictures (for us to use).  My assumption is that if they haven't edited Wikinews in nearly 18 months, you probably aren't contributing any pictures to our stories.  That being said, if they aren't taking pictures for us, they don't need it.

Point of note, several of these people resigned. (MrM and David
Shankbone come to mind). If i recall  Gmaxwell, I thought was approved
under some sort of experiment to grant accreditation to commons users,
and thus never was "Active".
