Please advise how to resolve:

Deleting a user from admin/auth/user/XXX/delete/ leads to:

DatabaseError: (1146, "Table 'askbot.group_messaging_lastvisittime' doesn't exist")

"Table does not exist" points to an issue in the database - a missing table - try running `python syncdb --migrate`.

It's better to not delete any user. And only move this user to blocked user group.

Blocked users can only login and send feedback to the site administrators, their url and profile will also be hidden.

edit flag offensive delete link more



The Problem is when you have to block 100 users. You need too much time, but deleting via /admin panel is faster, because you can find all users with emails, ,... at once

@Toms that's a good point, we'll need to implement bulk user moderation in the future versions.

@Evgeny@Toms there was this bulk user moderation features in OSQA, which I liked for such purposes. I don't know why it was removed for Askbot.
