As of 23 Nov 2017 this modification has been withdrawn.

This runs daily to check the activity of members and move them to a new usergroup if they meet certain rules.

Lurkers
If a member has not posted on the forum for a defined number of days (90 by default) then they will be moved from their existing usergroup to the defined usergroup (this can be any existing usergroup, however, you should really create a new 'Lurkers' group

Inactive Members
If a member has not visited the forum for a defined number of days (180 by default) then they will again be moved from their existing usergroup to the defined usergroup (this can also be any existing usergroup, however, you should again really create a new 'Inactive Users' group.

Only members of a defined list of usergroups are checked for inactivity.

If a member of the Inactive usergroup returns to the forum, or the Lurkers usergroup posts again, and auto-restore is enabled, they are automatically restored either to another pre-defined usergroup (by default this is usergroup 2, Registered Users) or to the usergroup they were in before they got initially moved. Note that if you use this option then you really must have seperate Inactive and Lurker usergroups, otherwise you are going to get in a mess.

Any of the options above can be disabled if not required. All options are in ACP > Options > Inactive and Lurker Members

To install simply download the file and import in vbulletin using the product manager.

Note: The move of inactive users is done once per day as part of the existing vbulletin daily update cron job. The restore function should be pretty much instant. Also, this works purely on the Primary usergroup, secondary groups are neither checked or altered.

How hard would it be to add a criteria, that after a user has VIEWED, say 5000 posts, they will be put into another usergroup.
Also simply after being a member for say 3 months without upgrading their subscription.

Great mod, i will definately be looking into this one.
Thanks in advance

Can we exclude certain forums from lurker checking?

We want the users to post in main forums instead of just post in certain privilege forums.

Can this feature be added?

No, Im afraid it has no such facility, nor any plans to add one.

If this cannot be done, can we manually move those actively posted in privilege forums but not in main forums into "Lurkers" group? Will the system then restore the user's original group if the user post again?

I did a test but somehow without posting, the users were restored back to their original group once they click on the "Forums" tab.

As the main post states ;

If a member of the Inactive usergroup returns to the forum, or the Lurkers usergroup posts again, and auto-restore is enabled, they are automatically restored either to another pre-defined usergroup (by default this is usergroup 2, Registered Users) or to the usergroup they were in before they got initially moved.

I forgot to come back to this thread.

I had to uninstall it because it caused some pretty serious and annoying issues on the forum.

Members who had paid subscriptions and went inactive or lurker, came back without having their primary usergroup restored to the paid subscriptions usergroup.

I have been manually changing the primary usergroup of members with paid subscriptions who came back to the forum after being inactive/lurker after being messaged asking why they didnt have access to certain things anymore.

I was running 4.1.12 at the time, I have since upgraded to 4.2.1 but haven't tried reinstalling the mod.

If its set up correctly, they will be restored to their former group.

Strange. Wasn't working for me, they weren't even being moved out of the lurker or inactive usergroups.

Members without paid subscriptions, it worked perfectly fine. It was only members with paid subscriptions, where the paid subscription changes the primary usergroup, that the modification wasn't working.

Feature Request

Paul this is a handy addon to VB.

One feature I would love to see is an option to reduce reputation automatically when a user is demoted. e.g. one point for every day inactive. or a set amount. That way they would need to earn back status.

didn't get restore function? Do user need to post or simply visit forum? I want Lurkers to POST before they can be restored.

Thanks!

M.C. if you want to focus on the posting...

Lurker Cutoff Point:
Any member who has not posted after this time period (in days) will be moved.
This must be lower than the Inactive setting.

Its years since I wrote this, but the description says ;

If a member of the Inactive usergroup returns to the forum, or the Lurkers usergroup posts again, and auto-restore is enabled, they are automatically restored
Is that not what you are asking ?
