  • Mass Prune Users

    I'm going to do a mass user prune soon. I've been sending out notices to let people know that if they don't log in, then they'll be removed.

    I generated an email from the cp by showing all users that there last visit was before 10-01-2001.

    I had user email me today and he said he had logged in. I checked his profile and he had a last vist of 01-01-1969 and a last activity of yesterday??

    How could he have those two dates?

    What criteria should I use to make sure I removed the right group of users?

    'Last visit' is in reality the 'next-to-last visit'. I don't know why but that's the way it is.

        yeah..

        you might be better off with last post as criteria ?

          Will the the last visit/last activity feature be changed in v3 so it becomes more logical?

                The 'last activity' field is updated whenever they log in - whether they post or not.

                  How can I prune using the last activity.

                    Does the Mass Prune use last activity or last log in?

                      Fusion: IMO last visit & last activity are perfectly logical.

                      pgowder: it uses Last Visit.

                        So will Last Visit work?? Or am I going to delete a user that has had activity?

                          Kevin, personally I'm inclined to agree, however, these last few posts may hint at that it's not that logical to most people, but maybe that's just because they're new at this.

                            IMO 'last visit' means exactly that - the last time someone visited the forums. If you actually mean the next to last time someone visited, then 'previous visit' would be the correct terminolgy.
