Help - Task: Delete Reporters

About the Task System

The 'Task System' is a feature of Commentics which is able to automatically run scheduled tasks. This allows the script to perform important functions, such as removing old data, which keeps the database efficient and small. The Task System is automatically executed once a day, triggered by your website's visitors.

About this Task

This task deletes the reporters and not the reports. The number of reports are actually stored as part of the comment. The reporters are stored separately and they are kept to prevent users from reporting the same comment more than once. However after 30 days their IP address can no longer be accurate. The worst consequence of executing this task is that a user may be able to report the same comment twice.
