Hi guys,
Just wondering if it is possible to 'Suspend' an Account to then have it re-activated by the member clicking on a Verification 'link' as per initial 'Activation' ??

This is not to be applied like a 'Ban' (although I DO have a situation currently where it could be used) .. but was more interested in it's use as an aid to 'Purging' very old members who have not returned in years.

Thanks, in Advance

I don't think there's any easy way to do this within SMF, you could set accounts inactive through the database, but generally I wouldn't recommend messing with useraccounts directly in the database.

Thanks  :(  as I suspected, I couldn't see anything 'obvious' that suggested it was possible.

Yeah, agreed.

Thanks anyway.

You could check out this mod email Inactive Users it doesn't exactly do what you asked for, but it could help with managing inactive users.

( Edit: I'm bad with wikilinks lately, sorry - fixed )

Thanks,.. I did look at that before it had been updated to work with the latest version of SMF and at the time decided to not bother.
We currently are running php 8.2 so that may Still be an issue.

As I already have all the member data in a spreadsheet, it might just be easier to do something on the server side, with php or have one of our Coders come up with something clever to email everyone in the list.

Thanks anyway  :)

Or you can ask them to develop a mod for you that will do what you requested. That should be fairly easy to develop.
