How do I list all forum members?

You used to be able to list all forum members, and sort by name or date joined. I haven't done this in some time, but now I can't find it. Since Michael Ogden seems to be trolling in our forums, I want to keep an eye our for new new accounts.

Thanks.

Damn, that's not the most user-friendly list, is it?

We disabled the built-in forums user list due to how utterly horrible it was (thanks, vBulletin!). Whenever googlebot tried to index it the site would crash. The closest we have to a replacement is here: http://www.redflagdeals.com/users/ but it only sorts by username.

My best advice would be to just report the trollers, though. The mods and/or Oranr will handle them.

where would be the best place to report a troller?
i have reported [someone] a few times and she is still here

also, if a male pretends to be a female, is that considered a troller?

^ That.
And the lack of using it is the reason that almost 6 months after I'd suggested and confirmed the reason why so many of us were complaining "I'm stuck in mobile view" ([post=15154234]see here and subsequent posts in the thread[/post]), it's still an ongoing issue.

Creating a hitlist, are we?
This may help: http://www.redflagdeals.com/users/
LOL. Just checking for patterns. Without a search by join date, the list is useless, unfortunately.

What I do not understand is that so many people complain about one certain member and nothing is done, further to this every time her username is mentioned a swift action of cover up happens (username edited out.) Then we are expected to believe the team is impartial, meanwhile good members standing up for their religious rights are being sent messages telling them to shut up or they will be banned forever...it's a joke.

It just shows everyone what is going on behind the scenes.

Just because people complain does not mean something will be done unless rules are broken.
If a certain member's posts/opinions bother you so much, use the ignore function.

But if users continue to call out/taunt others, then that becomes a personal attack/harassment problem; which will be punished accordingly.

Damn, I just thanked 'AcidBomber' by accident - for a post which I did not like (ADMIN: we need an 'Undo Thanks' option! Also please note that 'AcidBomber''s 'Thanks Received' page does not accurately reflect recent thanks received). There is a reason I disagree with what was posted, but it's off topic to this thread so I'll leave it for elsewhere..

'JAC', I have a custom workaround that I used a few months ago to successfully identify dozens of 'paid to post' forum members. Nowhere near as efficient as the unavailable default vBulletin memberpage, but it did the job. I'll send you a PM.
