Request Entity Too Large

Post by abrogard »

I have over 200 pages of inactive users so I thought to prune them.
It happily put a checkbox next to each one when I said mark all
and then kept me busy 'page downing' to get to the bottom
where it said am I sure
and i said yes
and it said:

Request Entity Too Large
The requested resource does not allow request data with POST requests, or the amount of data provided in the request exceeds the capacity limit.

Anyone know how i can prune this mammoth list of useless users down?

How many accounts are on each page?
You can increase the number with the posting tab > topics per page value

That way you'll have fewer pages and you can do more manageable chunks of deletions. 200 per page would only mean doing it 10 times.
