Suggestion - Prune Users


Days after creating my forum, and prior to installing Spam hammer, I had the **** spammed out of my board. The membership roster is an embarrassment and it would be nice fir a tool to prune - for some of us who are uncomfortable Manually doing this directly in the table.

I'd have to imagine this would be a pretty simple tool to add.

If they spammed, how would you have a tool that could automatically detect which posts are spam and which are legit? I can understand a prune tool to auto delete inactive members with zero posts after x amount of time which could be useful in addition to the admin config settings 'The number of days after which a new user, who has never logged in, will be deleted.'

Perhaps https://www.somesite.com/forum/misc.php?action=list
could have an admin view option of checkbox for delete of members who are obviously spammers? Not sure this is even required now that the new xmb version has the 'quarantine' feature.

This is more of a user prune than a post prune. I used one of of the hacks (forgot which) that moved the post to a throw down spam forum and deactivated them - then I deleted the post. In actuality 99% hadn't posted yet by the time I found the Spam hammer hack. Now I have a bunch of BS users with out posts.

So maybe if the tool asked for the variables Date Registered range, Status, <=> number of posts - the Admin could say before 01/01/20, inactive, with 0 posts.

I just reread and saw "Quarantine Feature"

Is that in the Beta, or am I missing seeing that feature in my version?

Ok, I'll scope it out when I upgrade to next version. Thanks for the help.
