As of 23 Nov 2017 this modification has been withdrawn.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.

Hey Paul, thank you for such an excellent mod, as are all of yours
I know you're terribly busy with everything but I was wondering if there could be a feature request for this?

I would really like to have an exemption listing for usergroups I don't want affected by Inactive & Lurkers.

Thanks so much for any consideration

Well I have a couple groups of different semi-moderator level users, and if they were inactive, then the mod picks them up and moves them, thus restricting their userlevel when they come back to visit, and forces them to post to restore original usergroup permissions.
So I wanted to have an exemption list for these groups so they wouldn't be affected by I&L.
I could have the Inactive users restore to the original usergroup, but for all other users I wanted them to still be marked Lurkers and then that wouldn't work right.
Hope that makes sense and not as convoluted as I think it reads

Umm.. Not sure how to say this other than, it doesn't work for me.

Running vbulletin 4.1.8, made the usergroups, had the add on active for more than 10 days with the limits set to 5, and nothing has happened, not one member moved to lurker or inactive?

Any idea why this would just not be working at all? As far as I can tell the Daily CleanUp is on and working fine each day.

I cant answer that without access - but a first test would be to manually run the daily cron.

I have installed this but it fails to move the users back to the original group after they come back and login and post.
