    I don't know how to do any hack, I do however know how to edit post counts. I just needed further clarification if the "hack" was a simple editing of member count. I asked for this clarification and it wasn't provided. Lighten up.

    Steve, you can come across as not very nice sometimes, in the past and with your latest reply. Thanks.

    Before pruning posts, make an "archived posts forum" and just search through all posts from which time you want to prune, and move all the quality and important ones to there so they can be remembered and cherished for times to come.

    I own acura-legend.com( www.acura-legend.com/vbulletin )

    My forums have grown a lot since January of 2002. With that, a lot of posts, and a lot of members have been accumulated. I get database error emails a lot, and I was told pruning my site may help on space.

    Some members register but never post(and probably never come back, much at least).

    I've seen www.aximsite.com warn of deleting members that havn't been "active" in the past 3 months or so I think it was. If I deleted members from 3 months ago & on with 0 posts, would that help reduce space? I would love to do this if it saved space, but I would also love to retain my "registered members" count. Is this possible?

    I would also like to delete unnecessary posts that don't belong. I'm confused on the pruning thing. I don't want to accidentally delete important posts.

    I've been going through deleting certain old posts on my forum but it takes forever. Is there a way I can "prune" and view the contents of threads before I delete? I need to reduce space.

    Please help. Thanks.

    Back up your database via SSH and then play with it. You can always restore it.
