Forum rules
What to do if you have a technical problem with OCS:

1. Search the forum. You can do this from the Advanced Search Page or from our Google Custom Search, which will search the entire PKP site. If you are encountering an error, we especially recommend searching the forum for said error.

2. Check the FAQ to see if your question or error has already been resolved. Please note that this FAQ is OJS-centric, but most issues are applicable to both platforms.

3. Post a question, but please, only after trying the above two solutions. If it's a workflow or usability question you should probably post to the OCS Conference Support and Discussion subforum; if you have a development question, try the OCS Development subforum.

Mass removing of users from OJS database?

Greetings --

We're having a problem in that we have many spam users enrolled -- about 15,000 -- and have already identified Captcha as a solution, but is there a way to delete the thousands of already-subscribed spam accounts? We would like to get rid of them, even if it means having to re-enter legitimate readers and editors.

Thanks in advance --
