Ok basically I run some forums. I set in the administrator settings for these forums, that new users either A: must activate their account through the email they used to sign up with a link, or B: through an administrator allowing them to.

One of my other admins turned this feature off god knows when, and I did not notice...
Someone came in and basically made 550 fake users with some type of bot. Now I want to simply know if there is a way to delete these users in one go, rather than manually going to each one...

I use the typical www.phpbb.com forums.

Is there a way to access my sql database and somehow delete these multiple users, or is this going to need a clean forum reset totally? Please help, much thanks.

nevermind you can delete this post... I figured it out. You can delete users from the mysql_users database if you look good enough... :whistling:
