As of 23 Nov 2017 this modification has been withdrawn.

This runs daily to check the activity of members and move them to a new usergroup if they meet certain rules.

Lurkers
If a member has not posted on the forum for a defined number of days (90 by default) then they will be moved from their existing usergroup to the defined usergroup (this can be any existing usergroup, however, you should really create a new 'Lurkers' group

Inactive Members
If a member has not visited the forum for a defined number of days (180 by default) then they will again be moved from their existing usergroup to the defined usergroup (this can also be any existing usergroup, however, you should again really create a new 'Inactive Users' group.

Only members of a defined list of usergroups are checked for inactivity.

If a member of the Inactive usergroup returns to the forum, or the Lurkers usergroup posts again, and auto-restore is enabled, they are automatically restored either to another pre-defined usergroup (by default this is usergroup 2, Registered Users) or to the usergroup they were in before they got initially moved. Note that if you use this option then you really must have seperate Inactive and Lurker usergroups, otherwise you are going to get in a mess.

Any of the options above can be disabled if not required. All options are in ACP > Options > Inactive and Lurker Members

To install simply download the file and import in vbulletin using the product manager.

Note: The move of inactive users is done once per day as part of the existing vbulletin daily update cron job. The restore function should be pretty much instant. Also, this works purely on the Primary usergroup, secondary groups are neither checked or altered.

Restores are not done by the cron job, they are automatically processed when you visit the site.

In the case of Lurkers, it wont actually occur until the next time the member visits a page. So if they post, and then leave, they wont get restored until they return.

Can this be made to exclude some groups when searching for inactive and lurkers.

Like donors be exempt from this.

Maybe I'm blind but is there the ability to make specific users, by userid, exempt from the move?

No.

There are no user exemptions, only user groups.

Great Mod.

Is there a way to have the Lurkers have a special badge, title or something that will motivate them to post?

For Lurkers you have created special group, so you can specify any title, html markup for title or even create a notification with explanation why this user is Lurker (as I did)

I was wondering if it's possible to count forum posts AND posts in social groups/blogs? I have a lot members who are actively posting in those areas of the site, but not on the main forums. D: So it seems weird to have them in the Lurker group.

No, this cannot do that, it would need extra code writing.

Inactive - No.
Lurker - Yes, as that's purely post based.

Hi, great mod and thanks for your work on it.

Just a quick question, is it possible to have a post limit option for inactive users?

for example, say an inactive user comes back to the forum, they have to make x amount of posts to be moved back into their original group? At the moment it's either they are moved straight away or the option is disabled.

Thanks,

Mark.

If I wanted to no longer run this mod and I deleted the Inactive Usergroups, what happens to the members currently within that group? Will they revert back to Registered Users?
