1081 additional unactivated users removed from our database!
We've also put in 4 conditionals depending on what a users status is (ones for those who have not registered, one for those who have registered but not activated via the e-mail link, one for those who have never posted on our site before, and one for those who have not posted in several weeks to nudge them to participate). Included in each of the conditionals is a detailed step by step description on "what happens next". This should improve things quite a bit.
The #1 reason why it would not, is because we have quite a few posters who haven't visited in ages, and they equal thousands of posts. Once we deleted those users we'll see tons of threads with just "Guest" as the poster and that's quite annoying not knowing who it was.
I really don't have to automate the deletes, it takes 30 seconds from my control panel and I do it every now and then when the 'unactivated' list gets large..
