Bulk delete users. Prune function doesn't delete

Post by TheDani » Tue Oct 24, 2017 5:34 am

Hi my board has been hit by a massive spambot signups. I have tried the Prune users function several times, but all it does is listing up spambot users.

Here are my settings step by step
Prune users screen, I set
Joined after to 2017-10-01
Delete pruned user posts to yes
Deactivate or delete to delete
All other settings I leave to default

Next screen shows a list of spambot user I want to wipe out. All users are checked by default. So I click the Yes button at the bottom. Then I am being sent back to the Prune users window, now message or anything. If I re-run the same pruning with the same settings above, it will find the same users again.

You're probably trying to do too many at once for the server to handle.

Yes you're right. Narrowing the date a bit more did the trick.
