Fingers of Fury!

There used to be a utility in Guild Portal, many moons ago, that allowed the purging of forum messages that were older than 'n' days.  Does this still exist?  If so, would someone kindly point me to where it is as I can not find it under the Guild Control Panel or anywhere else for that matter.

Thank you,

Same with member log-in sort/purge.  There used to be a place in the control panel to view members that have not logged in for 1, 3, 6, etc? months.  I have been looking for it like crazy.  It is gone?  If so, can we have it back please?  That way we will not have to delete obsolete users one at a time by opening individual windows.  It's very time consuming.

Yep, yep! Click Edit under your forums widget, and then click the "Pruning" link (along the top).

Hmm.. Well you can currently sort by last login when viewing the members in the control panel -- I don't remember specific views with certain months pre-selected (although they may have very well existed at one point). As for mass deleting users, not providing a way to do that has always kind of been a speed bump to slow down mass deletes by angry people who were given too much access to the site to begin with by the real guild leader... Who then forgot to lower their access before booting them from the guild in-game.

The problem is that we keep our roster clear of deadwood and having to open individual windows especially if there is lag, is more than a nuisance.  If we can have the option back that used to be in the control panel to view members that have not logged in at certain 1, 3, 6 month intervals or even better through the control panels "Profile Tracking" window, that would be HUGE.  Even if they just had a "delete" by each name and has to be done one by one would be better than nothing and we could get rid of old associations that we have not had for years.

Alrighty, I've in put an "Inactive for:" drop-down with options to select members inactive for 1 month or more, 3 months or more, 6 months or more, and a year or more. Also, I've put in a "Remove" link next to the "Edit" one on the main grid, so removing members will be less of a hassle. This will go live with the next update.
