If they can't post, what's the difference?

Can you post a screen shot of your settings? Also one of the names of any other add-ons you have installed?

I don't understand what you are trying to say. SOM does prevent known spam from registering. You do not have to moderate the first post if you do not want to primarily because it doesn't work perfectly, but it does work. Every post is moderated and has to be approved before it is posted. The problem is that you and the mods have to pay attention to all new registrations. That is an easy fix, just have new registrations sent to the mods, and yourself if you wish.

For some reason you have to pay attention to the threads in question because moderated threads do not show up in the way they should. Having a new post mod resolves this issue, unless they register and never post! I only moderate the 1st post because of a couple of problems with SOM.

1) you do not have the option to submit new spam IP's and e-mails to stopforumspam. In order to do this you have to manually go to SFS and enter the information.

2) Do not check user names! This is a big drawback, but if you check user names you will have a lot of people blocked for the site even though they are not spammers.

3) Many people have issues with the database, and there are so many times that it's mentioned how to fix it in the thread, but with over 120 pages of posts it is difficult to find. They end up not using it because they do not know how to fix the error.

4) If you just want to cover registration, there are many other options to use. I use a mod created by BOP5 that is great. Here is the link: No Spam Image Enhancement Link

That mod stops bot registration pretty well because you can use multiple images that you find and set up.

As djbaxter mentioned a screen shot of your settings may help us out with your current situation.

If you don't want post mod then turn it off I had it turned off when I had forums just go to the settings and disable the option

I love people that say "Do it my way". The reason is because some registrations stand out as being spam, and I want to stop them from posting anything. Some spammers are clever and will post a few "real" messages and then insert some spam signature. Please do not tell me to get this add-on and that add-on. I simply want all registrations to be sent to me for approval AFTER spam-o-matic has blocked the obvious ones.

Again, thanks, but you are missing the point.
I do not want this.
What I want is for new registrations that clear Spam-o-Matic to come to me for final approval.

Great, superb. How does that give me what I want? I never posted about wanting or not post mod. You and others have suggested it. I have kept saying I do not want it, and then you tell me to turn something off I never had turned on in the first place!

Thanks, but I think this is a bit too much for me to put up on this forum. I will ask the developer. But, truly, thanks for trying.

You can add the option to submit a spammer to the database by creating a small plugin to add the feature to the user profile in your AdminCP:

See http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...postcount=1821 and http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...postcount=1826 in this thread.

Have you even took the time to look at the settings and not just the settings of this mod

Your smarmy comments are sure to inspire all of us to come to your aid...

That said, at no point did I mention any additional addons.

Syxguns 03 Aug 2012 20:25

Antique Swords,
Turn off the moderation option in SOM.
Go to User Registration Options and find a line that says, "Email Address to Notify About New Members" and place your e-mail in there.

You did not come to my aid. You made a curt response. And you inspired me to respond as I did.

Hi
Thanks. But isn't this only turning off post moderation functions? I have looked and it seems so. I presume you mean Auto-Moderation: Enable? If so, all of the things it turns off are to do with posting, not registration.

I also emailed the developer, and it appears (I think, from what he said), that it is not possible to do what I want. So I guess I must moderate the posts of Newbies, which is not what I want to do.

But thanks to those that tried to help.

Yes, thank you. I have been through this on the forums on vb.org and filed a help ticket with vb.com. So I have done everything. It simply is not possible to have Spam-o-Matic moderate registrations to remove the known spam and then have the remainder come to me for final approval.

Because I have set up various mandatory questions (spammers always answer off topic or badly), country flags (spammers tend to select no fag / the default flag), etc., I easily see the spammers that get past Spam-o-Matic. I MUCH prefer this.
