It appears this mod allows any Moderator to access the Spam-o-Matic inline features. Is there some way to change the permissions on this? I want my admins and Super Mods to be able to use this feature, but I do not want regular moderators using it. Some of our moderators only moderate one or two sections of our large forum and I don't like the idea of giving them full control over being able to just delete/ban any user at will.

Is there some setting or switch I'm missing that will allow me to pick and choose which usergroups or mods can use Spam-o-Matic?

Also, I am having an issue with a SuperMod being moved into moderation queue. I have a newbies usergroup, all newbies go there until they have 10 posts, and I have the setting set to ignore anyone who includes URLs or links after they get 10 posts.

Still, every time this Super Mod posts a thread with multiple URLs or IMG BB code, her post is moved into the moderation queue. She has way more than 10 posts. Is this something going on in Spam-O-Matic or is there another vBulletin setting that could be causing it? I have no other spam/moderation add-ons installed and I have vB's native spam management system disabled.

I think I found the issue. It seems our mod was putting her posts in moderation on purpose using the Unapprove Posts function in order to format/edit/proofread them before making them public. The one thing I didn't do before troubleshooting the issue yesterday was ask her about it directly. *headdesk*

Thanks for the reply.

4 guests canīt create a new account because they are detected as bots.

How can I avoid this?

Thanks

When myself and members go to post a reply to an article they get a white page and no new post arrives on the forum.

Can anyone help? Thanks

What is this?
Where does it go, and how does it work?

Ya same here, I've seen a ton of new registrations that appear to be just spammers. I'm getting like 20 a day of new accounts.

Hi,
I just upgraded to the latest version, and this version has the stats on the bottom of forum home.

Is there a way to make it so only Admins can see this? I don't really see a reason for anyone else to see this? Plus I like to keep my spam blocking secrets to myself and not let them know what it is they are working against.

Thanks
Chris
