  • Pruning members by post count problems

    So, I wanted to delete anyone who hadn't confirmed their account who had zero posts.

    The 'posts' box is 0, do a search, loads of results with 0 posts... vape all results.

    However, it turns out I've deleted accounts with more than 0 posts - one member had 13k posts.

    So then I read properly, and it says 'posts is less than'. Hmm.

    Well if it's 0, it's quite easy to imagine why one would imagine I'm searching for those with zero posts. However okay I didn't read correctly, but that still doesn't make sense.

    How on earth is 12k+ 'less than 0'.


    1) It seems the prune is a bit broken an has caused quite a bit of damage on my site.
    2) I have backups, but they were earlier in the day. Anyway I can restore what's been wiped in any way, without a full database restore?

    Set posts less than to '1', not '0'.

      Horse, bolted. Thanks very much for your help.

      Really clever to create UI where in your world 12k is less than 0. It's idiotic.
