No, Nirose, you are wrong there. It does NOT do this well.

What it does is "send emails to inactive users and deletes them if they haven't logged in on the forum."
and that is clearly NOT what I requested. Would you please read my post above yours.

And you also gave reasons yourself in addition.
QUOTE OF Aleksi "Lex" Kilpinen: "That version is old enough to go to school itself."
At least these 11 steps need to be done for SMF2.1 RC3. And these 133 for SMF2.1 Final.

I also had problems so i wrote two php batch scripts that will send emails.

Don't set the "do_delete" flag and if you upload it to your web root then you will, by default, get a listing of who hasn't logged in since "n" number of days and whose account has never been logged into.

It shows you their post count also.

Hey mate, I've tried and installed this mod, but I see no change in the user list after using it.  We've got a bunch of spammers registered that I wanted to clear out - they've got a lot of dormant accounts with no posts - but nothing seems to have happened.

What is your SMF version?
How do you fill fields before click on Remove now button.

Notes:
My mod add some enhancements to "Remove Inactive Members" section, but this section is in SMF core.
My mod, and this section, is not for delete spammers, only remove members with certain conditions.

SMF 2.0.15
I've filled the fields with "logical" criteria; users with 0 posts.
I've tried to play with the 1st option eg 'been registered more than 30 days' but to no avail.

Not that big a deal, we don't get that many spam regos, only 50 or so in backlog, I just thought it might be simpler to batch-rid of them.

Having said that I've tried it with trepidation; it maybe hard to double-check what has happened, afterwards.  This is really not my preferred function, just a 'next best' thing.   I really wish someone with time would create a mod to click the users in the user list and mass-ban them; that'd be a far nicer solution.   Funnily enough, even though spammers seem to be a common problem, nobody though of doing it, sadly.

Anyway, don't bother yourself with it, I'll just get through them manually.
