Pre-registration - bulk delete

Yabb 2.2.1

I had so much spam I switched to admin authorized registration.

I have over 1200 awaiting approval (validated Registrants awaiting approval.)

Is there an easy way to delete them in bulk as opposed to one at a time as it takes forever to delete them individually

You'll need to be careful not to delete legitimate registrations, but ...

... in the Members directory you'll find registrations waiting for approval to have a pre or wait extension. So when you access that directory, simply do a search for the *.pre and *.wait membership files, and delete them in bulk.

Example: Let's say someone registers the name of testmember. What you'll see in the Members directory is either testmember.pre or testmember.wait - so those are the files you'll delete.

At the present time there isn't a mass delete option in YaBB for admins.

I recently learned about *.pre registration files being in the Members directory from Derek as follows:

Hi Bill,

Take a look in the Members directory for a username.pre file - if one's there, delete it.
