Of course - and I won't delete the files associated with genuine members!

Yes, you can delete those associated files. There's no need for them.

By the way, generally speaking, any and all files that you choose to delete should first be copied locally onto your computer. That way, if they're needed for any reason, you can retrieve them.

  

Morning, noon, or night, have a great one!

Thanks all.

I've removed all the .pre and .wait files. from the Members folder.
I've got thousands of .msg files that go with the deleted .wait files. They are 543bytes each so take a bit of space up - can I delete these as well?

Thanks

Then go over to Carsten's Board (http://www.carsten-dalgaard.dk/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl) and install SpamFruits to keep the beggars from coming back.

Anti-spam Question works with 2.4 too:

And it works very nicely, too.  Smiley You can't have too many anti-spam mods. (ggn's captcha hack is a good one as well.)

My area of expertise is 2.5 and above. That caveat being given.

FTP to your site and look in the Members directory for
*.pre  (remove all of them )
*.wait  (remove all of them)
and also download and open in as a text file: 'memberlist.inactive', remove anything there and re-upload it, and do the same with 'memberlist.approve'

In the case of '*.pre'  and '*.wait' - that's any file that ends in .pre or .wait.

Then go over to Carsten's Board (http://www.carsten-dalgaard.dk/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl) and install SpamFruits to keep the beggars from coming back.  Wink

The post here in this forum should help.

Edited:
Dandello's post after mine here is really the only one you need to do what you want. Smiley

Hello all,
Been searching around here for some time but can't seem to find an exact answer.
My question is, I want to delete ALL the 13359 validated Registrants awaiting approval. How do I do it?

I'm running Yabb 2.4 if that helps on a forum with just 80 genuine members.
Any help appreciated.
