There are several thousands banned users in my forum.
AdminCP > Users > Batch Update Users - carefully set your criteria and delete away.
How to set the criteria? That's exatly the problem I'm facing.
*Theoretically*, if you've banned all banned members using the built in XF banning functionality you can just hit the Batch Update Users link and simply uncheck the box for Banned State: Not Banned option to get a complete listing of all banned members. But I would carefully screen the list of results to make sure before doing any actual deleting.
There's a "Banned State" criteria you can set.
You will probably want to set other criteria to delete the users in batches (e.g. set the date registered) seeing as you've got "thousands" of banned users - I'm not sure how well it'll cope with trying to delete them all in one go depending on your server setup etc.
You might like to determine how many have posts. Ideally you would delete any threads or posts created by these banned members first.
@msibm that's why I said
Wow - you said thousands of banned users, not tens of thousands.
