vB Version: 3.8.x Rating: (13 votes - 4.69 average) Installs: 114

Not Supported Uses Plugins Additional Files Re-usable Code  

This mod helps to automatically delete user account upon custom-defined rules. For example, you can delete members, who didn't comfirmed emails after 3 days, delete members, who have zero posts and didn't visited your forum for a long time, and so on.

Any conditions can be defined! Cleanup can be done in both automatic and manual mode.

Difference between built-in vB user pruner:

1. Completely automated.
2. Comfotable management of multiple rules.
3. More flexible prune criterias.

Some stat for my forum (only zero-posts users were cleared):

- last user ID 50652
- total users left 19359

60% effectivity!!!

Installation:

Upload files and import product XML.

Configuration:
  • Enter ACP and go to Users -> Cleanup.
  • Create cleanup rules you needs, and save in inactive state.
  • Test you rules. Do manual cleanup, if you wish.
  • Activate rules (enable automatic cleanup), if you are satisfied with testing results.
Warning! Don't activate cleanup rules without testing! Don't forget to backup your forum database!

PS. Product is marked as beta, because i can't test all possible rules combinations. But those been used - works fine. If you have strange results duging testing, don't hesitate to post screenshot with your rule, and explain what is wrong.

Was NOT tested with 3.6.x & 3.7.x, but probably works.

Nothing. Result is the same, as when you delete user manually.

When you say above "havent viewed in a long time", what do mean like whats the set time?
Believe me... After awhile you just need to start as fresh as possible. Any server will crumble a few times when you DB is 200 MB. I went in cleaned up posts that haven't been replied to within the last year and I deleted all members that have no posts that registered over 2 weeks ago.

What's the purpose of cleaning users? And if I clean up my users, will it decrease my "users" stat on my site?

Hi,
1. Does it work correctly with you ?
2. Can it display the users to be deleted for confirmation ? I may put by mistake undesired rules, then I loose my users without knowing !

Thanks,,

Look for description in first post. The're manual "test" mode. It contains confirmation and list of found users for that rule. Anyway, it's a good idea to backup database prior changes.

No plans now to do that. But code is reuseable, you can make your fork, or send changes here http://github.com/rcdesign/vb-users_cleanup
