As of 23 Nov 2017 this modification has been withdrawn.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.

I understood your question - however, like I said, I do not know why it would say Lurker in the first place.

In your example ;

This user is silent for some time and moved in a usergroup "Lurkers", it is given the status "Lurker"
There is no code in the mod to set usertitles (the bit in red) so something else is doing that.

Obviously, there is no code to reverse something it isnt doing in the first place.

Paul M, Clearly, thanks for the clarification. Apparently changing the status occurred during scheduled update statuses.

I've installed this on vBulletin 4.0.2 Patch Level 4 and 8 inactive members were moved to administrators group.....very scary! I guess i doesn't really work with 4.0.2. Love this mod but obviously it doesn't work for me. Installed but disabled until find out what the problem is.

It works perfectly with any version of 4.0. It can only move people to the usergroups you define in the settings.

I would like to say thanks for the mod and place a request for a third movement option: move members having below x posts to a specific usergroup and move them back if they pass the posting value. I think this could be a nice addition.

Great mod Paul!

I have suggestion for the next version if there's one.

Separate the Inactive and the Lurker options.

Im only interest in the Lurker options , but if i put 0 in inactive when i run the daily update i get inactive error and doesnt do anything , so i have to put a number in the inactive higher than the number in the lurker.

It would be good , because you know different people require different thing's , that way its more flexible and i think its no that hard to rewrite...i would do it but my thing it's xml and sql xD.

Again great mod and thank you very much! i use a lot of your's mods

Thats simply a bug, you should be able to disable either.

If an inactive user have been moved to the special usergroup. How can I reactive him manually? As I've receive a request by the user to activate his account again.

I fear If I move his account to the standard registered usergroup, he will be moved back again after the next cronjob.

He will not be moved if hes active before the cron runs.

Looks good but two quick questions:

Will this work in 3.8.6?

When the users are moved to, say, a group which doesn't allow signatures or profile info, will said information be stripped out/removed by the system automatically?
