i'll install this tonight and let you know how it goes :D

This is essentially a 4th tool for the Admin Tools hack I posted here (http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=14075), and was written at Eva200's request.

Usage: offers mass pruning (removal) of those "Moved:" threads based on age (redirects older than X days).

Place: done in the Moderator's Control Panel

Permissions: you grant permission to moderators via their permissions page in the Administration Control Panel (under Forums & Moderators). Admins and Super Mods have permissions by default.

Perks: you can mass-delete all redirects older than x days, or select which ones to delete and which to leave.

Installation: download the attached zip file. "prune-redirects.txt" includes detailed installation instructions.

Let me know if you have any problem or need anything else added to it.
