7(!) clicks. Per account. Geez.... Thanx. There really should be a better way to mass-moderate built in the forum, like it used to be (granddad speaks...)
Q&A has been around a long time as part of the core.
Much obliged. I hope it helps...

One of the username
One on administrate
one on delete
If necessary add a couple of mods to the admin group for an hour to help you clean up. I cleaned a board with over 4000 accounts in a little over an hour once. Doesn't take long at all.
You can bulk delete in users and groups > prune users but you may end up with orphaned topics.
In the old days (sigh ) I had a mod where with one click I would get a list of my users (like manage users -> find a member), but the user names had checkmarks in front. I could click the checkmark for any (or all) members and select "delete user" from a pulldown menu. A bit like the former mass moderation of topics, there once was an option to "moderate this forum". It would give a list of all topics with checkmarks in front. click and delete any or all topics in just 3 clicks. Evenw ithin a topic I had an option to delete multiple posts. Newer versions are not always better versions. I miss my old styles, mods and changesKevC wrote: ↑Sat Jul 15, 2017 7:28 pmYou don't need the first 4.
If they've posted their name is in the forum next to the post. Just click the name there.
If they haven't posted, open the memberlist last page in one tab and just right click > open in new table for the names you want to remove.
There are easier ways to do it that you think. Or use prune.
You do.novw wrote: ↑Sat Jul 15, 2017 7:37 pmIn the old days (sigh ) I had a mod where with one click I would get a list of my users (like manage users -> find a member), but the user names had checkmarks in front.

Uhoh... I try to register a new user and it is not asking the question upon registration. It is asking the questions upon 5 failed login attempts.KevC wrote: ↑Sat Jul 15, 2017 7:11 pmIf it's the site in your sig, you have no antispam measures running at all.
