Delete Unactivated Users

Hey, I asked on vBulletin's forum and was directed over here.

Does anyone know how I could schedule a job to delete uncativated user accounts after 30 days of inactivity?

Thanks for any help/suggestions.

You want it done automatic? You could also do a manual search and prune from AdminCP.

I usually send a warning mail after 2 weeks, and delete after 4 weeks to all users that are still in teh Awaiting for Confirmation group and have registered longer then 2 weeks (mail) or 4 weeks (delete) ago.

Take a look at this, you should be able to adapt it.

I would be way to paranoid to let an automated script delete users. What if the server time is messed up for some reason and it then thinks that everyone should be deleted.

Anyways I do this manually from Prune Users. I delete users that are still waiting to be confirmed and over 30 days since they registered.
