XF 1.2 Long unattended site: thousands of users awaiting



I have a xenforo installation, running 1.12. I have not attended to the site in ages. I put users on moderation, so that I could approve new users. Well, it tuns out that there are almost 3,000 new users waiting for acceptance.

Is there a way that I can sort them by country? And remove all the ones from certain countries? (don't judge me, I don't think many people in China or Japan really want the communicate on my topics.)

Also: you may have suggestions on how to handle this. When I click on Users Awaiting Approval, the script times out, there are so many.


Oops: this should be tagged Version 1.1

1.1.5 should make the page not time out (if I recall correctly). Unfortunately, otherwise there are no additional filtering/ordering options for that page.
