Reminding members of accounts??

Post by TonyF80 » Tue Feb 10, 2009 11:35 am

I'm new to phpbb and set up a forum about 6 months ago. I had initial rush of members signing on, but now a steady dozen or so do regularly. Is there a way for me to remind members to sign on? I know if a member is "inactive" remind is a choice, but what is the best way to remind members about their accounts? Can I "remind" them through the ACP? Thanks.

You could send a mass email or even just email them individually.

I thought of that. But we are talking about over 200 members.

Can I pick and choose which ones to send the email reminder to, or do I have to send the reminder to all?

FYI...you do not need a MOD to send emails to a group or list of individual members. This functionality exists by default.
Use this section of Mass email
Send to users:
Entering names here will override any group selected above. Enter each username on a new line.

When read, seems to imply that you need the MOD you linked to. My post was simply to clarify that is not the case. ;)
