An Upgrade For Inactive Users

Post by Isabel_Kitty on January 7th 2007, 8:32 pm

Inactive users, to have an option to delete people that haven't posted in x amount of days. Currently it displays users that have NEVER posted, but there isn't a way to see members that haven't posted in 6 months for instance, if they were an active member and now they aren't.

which is to have an option to set up a period lets say 3 month if the user is inactive he/she will be auto deleted from the database

Yea and auto delete would be cool too. It can be a box that you enter how many months. My forum would probably be set to a year.

Personnally, I think that people who posted by the past are members. Smile
But this is my point of view ( I just give it, I don't vote ^^ ).

BTW I want this for lurkers. I have members that login once and a while but never seem to post. Yet they have 1-2 posts so they don't show up under inactive at the moment, but they ARE inactive in my opinion.

I think this is a good idea to save hours deleting members who have never posted.

Before you delete them there should be an automated message sent to them asking if they still want to be a member.

I agree with Spook and Co.

On Forge-Star there are also people who register, sometimes confirm, an that's about it.
Wevan (a Co-Admin) and me, we regularly delete those users once a month (there's a warning in the extra rules)

It would be easier for us if there was an option

I usually do, but they never reply. I also send newletters reminding people to post....specially if they login once and a while but never post. Gives me the jeebies about them just lurking lol.

I can see this option working for MMO guilds that require their members to submit a post every so often. The philosophy is to ensure that the guild is kept up-to-date due to team effort by all.

I think that this would be ok as long as it is optional and not something which is automatic
