    I am interested in deleting about 200 users permanently, in such a way that as if they never existed or registered on the forum. How can I do that? also I want their user IDs to free up. Like for example if the user registered with an account his profile looks like this:


    so he takes up that number which is 115. I want so that the new users that register can occupy that number again, how can I do that?

    Mainly because at one point I had to manually ban spam bots until I realized I have to ban their IPs, but I also want to remove them entirely. and have new members that register take that number spot, i dont want that to be blank for some reason.

    The only way to delete members is from the ACP.

    That won't remove any content however - you would need to remove that first before deleting them.

    Nor will it make the ID available for re-use - that's not possible.
