Not working with vB 4.14

I noticed a massive influx of spam registrations when I upgraded from 3.8 to 4.1.3 last week and this has banished them all :D

It's because most attempted registrations are spammers. I've tested this by manually registering using different IP's, different email hosts etc. and it's allowed all registrations. Every registration it has blocked for me, are listed as spammers in the No Forum Spam database.

I hope that's not for everyone, although I do hope you get it all worked out and SOM working for you again.

I'm thinking I might have to uninstall the SOM, do the update to vB 4.1.4, then reinstall the SOM and then keep my fingers crossed it all works like it's meant to. *sigh*

Is it possible that a button can be added at their profile to easily remove a user bot and delete all their stuff with 1 push (or 2) of a button?

Working fine here.

it's not working for me when I register with my other e-mail. Database keeps rejecting it. Any idea?

Just a heads up to everyone StopForumSpam is down, so spammers will get through today.

@Steeler7 Has the issue only happened today or is this a reoccurring issue? If it has only happened today, it may be related to the StopForumSpam outage, if it is happening everyday PM me your email address and I'll try register with it on my forum, once StopForumSpam is back up.

Forgot to mention that I'm running 4.1.4 as well with it not working for me. I'm getting the following error...

Quote:

Database error in vBulletin 4.1.4:

Invalid SQL:
INSERT INTO glowhostspamomatic_log(`date`, `ip`, `email`, `username`, `message`, `is_blocked`, `user_hash`) VALUES (now(), "98.239.167.36", "[email protected]", "testingname2", "Spam-O-Matic Tagged username - testingname2 Unable to connect to StopForumSpam.com. This is probably due to some temporary problems on their website: Unable to check. User passed to vBulletin registration system per your settings at \'StopForumSpam: Query Connection Errors\'", "0", "0dd920e31cb73ec67f6c40fcd8bec12c");;
doesnt really matter what user name I use either and I even tried stopforumspam and no dice. Same error from both

Just today.

This would perfectly explain my database error i just pasted.

Thanks for the headsup!!

Ross L 14 Jun 2011 20:13

No worries :D It's definitely caused by the StopForumSpam outage. Once they are back up, the mod should work perfectly. Keep checking http://www.stopforumspam.com to see if they are back up.

You can keep updated with StopForumSpam's outage here: http://twitter.com/#!/StopForumSpam

Thanks for the Twitter link - guess he will be getting a lot more followers now

I'm amazed it runs off just one server (for now) hopefully he'll get the clustering working soon

I'm using 4.1.4 and it installed perfectly fine, only problem is it now doesn't allow anyone to register regardless of settings. I've uninstalled it and hope there will be an update.

Not a huge deal but I like to double check and make sure it doesn't look like a sleeper account before they get through. I'm the only admin on the site so I know it's not another admin approving them.

How can we set it so that SoM lets them register but the admin or mod still needs to approve the registration before they go live?

This is the first report I have seen that this does not work.

It's great that this system catches so many spammers but having to go and manually add each rejected application to SFS's database it very taxing, especially when we are talking about amount of info I am talking about. Are there any plans to add check boxes or a 1 click option to submit all blocked/stopped spam account into to SFS's database in the future? It would be really great because having to sit down and submit 1 by 1 each spam account's into takes forever when you are dealing with hundreds of stopped spam account info each week, I think my CTRL-V key is breaking from so much copy and pasting lol.

Yes, that is one of the core functions in SOM. Its a 2 click process. Look for the Spam-O-Matic setting in your moderation tools menu. See the screenshots on the first page of this thread for the example.

This is answered on just about every page in this thread, its also in the FAQ on the first post. Look for it in V2.5

I'm using 4.1.4 and I really don't feel to have any problem with this. But I must say I'm amazed that in only 2 days I got over 100 registrations denied... Can it be that some real users are getting their registration denied or is my forum a spamming target? I'm still getting real users to register in my forum without any problem though.
