The ever popular "Miserable Users" modification.

Basically a way to really annoy anyone you don't want visiting your forum. Credit to Zzed for the original idea.

When classed as miserable, a member suffers ;

1. Slow response (time delay) on every page (20 to 60 seconds default).
2. A chance they will get the "server busy" message (50% by default).
3. A chance they will get redirected to another preset page (25% & homepage by default).
4. A chance they will simply get a blank page (25% by default).

If they get past all this okay, then they will be served up their proper page.

Note: All the above are set in vBulletin Options > Miserable Users.

To Install ;

Download the xml file to your pc and import it into vbulletin as a product.
Ceate your 'Miserable Users' usergroup and set the value of this group, and your preferred other settings, in the modifications settings (vBulletin Options > Miserable Users).


To make a member suffer just edit their profile - add them to the Miserable Users group (it will work as either the primary group or as a secondary group). There is also the option to set ip addresses.

This has been around for 5+ years, and requested on each vb version upgrade.

why you need , you add delay on Guests & members , if your forum is big enough you add Premium membership with no delay , or add only delay to Guests then say " Register and surf faster"

I use parts of it for persistent spammers or bots that try to spider my site without following the ROBOTS.TXT and META data.

Thanks for updating it to 4.0.x!

Tks Paul, This is a handy add on, is it possible in the future to add Miserable AND clean-up? (i.e. all the spammer posts) as a extra bonus to the Mod?

Tks again.

Thanks, the perfect "moderating" tool for trols and other kind of people who otherwise would kill the forum.

This is the single most important mod for me, so now I can upgrade to vb4, thanks
