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.

This one is one of my favorite mods.
Thanks for the update, Paul

One question:
will the auto-restore work with inactive users who moved before upgrading to vB 4 (as we will remove all hacks before upgrading then install the new ones after upgrading to vB4)? Or it will only work with users who moved using this new release?

Yes (and no ....) as long as you define the usergroup correctly it will be able to restore them to the pre-defined usergroup. However, it will not be able to correctly restore them to their old usergroup, as that information does not exist. If you try to do that, they will end up in usergroup 0. I will fix that shortly so they go to the predefined group.

Yes. As long as the "special" group is their primary group.

Will this give them an additional usergroup instead of moving them?
