  • Mass Pruning Users - User Infos

    Hi,

    before mass pruning all users, who didn't visit since 365 days and have a post count of 0 I emailed them stating that if they don't visit within 7 days their account will be deleted.

    So far so good, but now a couple of users visited our forums and still their 'Last Visit' reflects their old visit (200+ days ago).

    I already updated the post count, forum & thread infos...

    Thanks for any hint,

    The 'Last visit' is really their 'Next-to-Last Visit'. The real last visit is the 'Last Activity'.

      Okay, thanks for the info.

      So how can I prune users with their 'Last Activity' of more than 365 days?

        I believe that is exactly what you've done. Did you check the 'Last Activity' of these users who were not removed?

          No, I just relied on the 'Move/Prune Users' function ...

          I haven't pruned them yet, I just generated the list.

            Then what I would do is prune them. This should do what you want.

              Let me explain my problem a bit further

              I mailed all users on the list to visit our forums this week or they will be deleted.

              Some visited us yesterday, I saw one user (user x).
              Then I generated the list again, just to see how many visited.
              User x was still on the list although he was on the forum yesterday.

              So there seems to be something wrong... ?

                And what shows up for user x's last visit and activity in his user profile?

                  His 'Last Visit' shows 2002-12-09 21:15:23 and his 'Last Activity' 2003-11-03 17:38:44.

                  Hmmm, so how can I prune users whose 'Last Activity' was ~365 days ago via the ACP?

                    Hmmm...I'm afraid I don't know then,. If what you are saying is correct, then there is no way to do this in the Admin CP. Unfortunately I don't have a similar user I can test this on to see if I get the same results.

                      I just double checked, unfortunately it is this way on my board.
                      Thanks Steve, I think I have to show into the user.php

                      Maybe this requires hacking, but then I would suggest to change this for vb3 - if this hasn't been done.

                        Phew, the code is all over the place, $lastvisit/lastvisit is used quite often.
                        I guess I'll ask over at vb.org
                        Thanks anyways
