Administration/Moderation Concerns?

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

knowing what i know about users/page views, bot, etc these number mean nada to me

Just now
In total there are 2426 users online :: 85 registered, 4 hidden and 2337 guests (based on users active over the past 360 minutes)
Most users ever online was 6675 on Fri Feb 23, 2018 8:29 am
only number really relevant is REGISTERED users, guests is meaningless
Why are guests irrelevant? GONK promotes CEO on Facebook and a lot of people click on the links and visit the forum who aren't posting members or who don't log in. Why shouldn't their views count, to advertisers and to anyone else measuring the success of the forum?

Anyway, you're just an ex-K440 rabble rouser stirring up trouble here. Let's ban him, guys!

Richard is convinced all the guests are bots. Bots who are curious about Cambodia, apparently.

I had to look that up. Cool word. Spooge. It's like a cross between 'Ooooh!' and a sponge.

Why is guests meaningless?

We were all guests before becoming members. Guests are a pool of potential members.
because they may not be real people, u seriously believe their are 2337 Guest browsing the site now??
it doesnt say there are 2337 guests browsing the site now... it says 2337 guests have visited the site in the past 360 minutes :facepalm:

How to delete my account and posts?
Sorry if this has been asked before but couldn't find it in settings or by searching.
there is actually no easy way to do it without some sql knowledge that can cost a fair bit of money, please contact general mac directly by PM for this request.
i for one will be really sad to see you go as your building contributions are highly interesting.
Oh, come on..... A fair bit of money? Anyone with a 40 hour course and the table structure of the database will be able to write simple queries like this.

And even more: I am pretty sure all the mods (or at least the 'super mod', depending on how you all organized it...) have some wizard-like search function where you can search for posts from a certain user by filling in a user name (maybe even by selecting from a list of all users in the system to prevent typos...) in a search field. If you have that you can search for posts from a certain user, select all, and.... delete.... With zero spending. Of course it will mess with the order of the thread, but I don't think there's a technical reason for not doing it - unless the forum has been set up by absolute beginners. In that case you will soon face problems with scaling it.

If you have a 'dev' working for you I strongly suggest you not just let him/her write one time queries, but also let hem or her implement the queries as a kind of wizard in the mod menu so you can use 'm over and over with different variables.

i can't. I would have to pay a contractor.
maybe UT can.
GM...... maybe not
Jamie?
I highly doubt that there is a fund of capital for these requests.
As far as I can make out, the forum is wholly subsidised by GM.
That is why i referred whiteribbon's request to GM.
