Currently: 53521 users at the "All" level. from http://www.asp.net/community/recognition/hall-of-fame
Prior to restructuring the way points are decided, if my recollection is correct, there were somewhere between 150 and 200 thousand.
what criteria were used to drop such a large number of members?
although many likely never asked a question and seldom logged on, i suspect they may have still visited forums.asp.net anonymously; others may have forgotten their authentication credentials and created replacements; still others may have decided
to use a Microsoft account.
regardless, the drop is huge.

The 2 points for posting a reply to a thread you didn't start was removed in the last reckoning. Also, people were awarded 5 points for every post made prior to the introduction of the recognition system in 2007. Those points seem to have gone too. That
could conceivably leave a lot of people with zero points.

Hi Mike ... are you saying that having zero points is all it takes to not be included in the ALL category? regards, Gerry

To reach "Member" level you need from 1 to 750 points and other Recognition Level ranks require higher points totals.
So currently anybody signed up who has not earned at least 1 point (in accordance with the current points system) would not be included in the Recognition Level ranks.

Thank you, Mike Brind and Mike Banavige.
is it reasonable to presume that any posts or replies from the members with zero points were

No posts or replies were deleted due to a member not having earned any recognition points.
