Was a clean install of 2.0.2, checked in the settings and the stats showing are enabled.

Any ideas?

Many thanks

Mark,

Are you able to see (in ADMINCP) under Stats and Logs anything being logged by SOM? I am having the same issues as you.

That's the thing - I find most spammers don't bother posting these days. It's all about stuffing links into profiles, signatures, PMs or vistor comments. So how to get them banned & logged on StopForumSpam?

But having said that no spammers have been able to register so I guess they are being denied but not recorded in logs. So the stats not showing is a minor issue.

Same here. The log function seems to have been disabled in the update.

I cleared my logs out before upgrading to 2.0.1 (about to go to 2.0.2), now I do have an entry for a user thats post was moderated based on post count, but theres 0 entries for users who are being blocked. Def not a verbose/duplicate issue as previously stated, they just aren't being logged at all now.
In SOM V1 what happened is every registration attempt was logged. But a lot of bots did not even eligible pass the vB registration system. Those were wasted queries to the SFS database.

In SOM V2 if and only if a bot gets past the vBulletin registration system and any other human verification you have, then it is checked at SFS and then it is logged if it is found.

I'm wondering under what conditions they would be checked so much? I did a search for IP, username, and Email and this user never did get created so what do I make of this? Is it a person hitting refresh a lot? Failing Captcha? I don't know as these entries are just seconds apart.

This is what I am talking about in my post above. SOM works in an opposite fashion now. First, vB registration is allowed, since most bots dont ever get past this part, there is no need to check them at SFS. If they do get past registration, then we check them at SFS, so your numbers are going to be much lower especially if you are running human verification.

Turn off human verification if you want to see the numbers go higher, faster.

They don't show up if there is nothing to log.

That's a good idea and I will add it to an upcoming version as its been requested a bit and I also see a need for it in case people use the publishing suite stuff.

Not at this time. I will see about adding it if it is a popular request.

Ok, this makes sense now. You might want to include that explanation in the first post to avoid all of the inquiries about the logging issue.

Another suggestion would be to also have a global enable/disable of the forumhome stats so you don't have to individually disable each one to turn off the stats.

Hey dprice,

I just checked there and sadly nope no logs there either :(

I'm guessing :P that something isnt working right

Good mod, i was using the stop forum spam mod before but i've been getting complaints for months from people saying they had been rejected as spammers and after trying to register my self it also rejected me as a spammer, so i tried this & it seems to be working just fine and let me register when i tested.

Not sure why people are having problems with the logs they are working just fine for me on vb4.1.1

see a few posts above, where Glowhost explains the "lack" of logs.

basically its spammers hit the vB registration first and usually fail there, so no longer making unnecessary queries to the list sites. Therefore no logs. Spammers have to get by the registration system first, then they're queried.
At least thats how I understood the description.

not sure about that, this is what it's showing for me, and i'm using "GlowHost_-_Spam-O-Matic_v2.0.2_VB4.zip"

Mark,

Turn off Human Verification, and the logging will actually come.

Glowhost explained whats going on in the new vers 2.0.2 in a few posts above this one. Recommend they update the file description and the readme since everyone using ver 1 was used to reading an azzton of logs.

This script works exactly as advertised.


Thank you glowhost for sharing this mod and providing updates/feedback to the community.


I did have one issue where someone, that I know, tried to register for the forums and their IP was tagged and rejected?

Spam-O-Matic Tagged ip - 192.251.125.85 - Spammer Found and rejected.

What database houses this ip? Is it SFS?

Hi everyone,

I've just installed this awesome looking mod but have run into an immediate problem. For some reason it breaks my thread reply counts and stops new threads showing up in the new posts feature. I didn't see any mention of this anywhere else, can anyone provide any insight into this?

Thanks!
