What is the point of maintaining inactive ambassadors in the list? It
is a different thing to keep ambassadors who were active once and are
not as involved now, and a completely different thing for those who
sign up as ambassadors and just don't do anything about it.

Why? How would cash rewards serve as a yardstick? If you mean cash
rewards as a means of encouraging volunteers then you're completely
missing the point -- it is called "volunteering" for a reason.
