Well first of all thanks for this addon.

so here my problems :
1) No Settings under Usergroups (Akismet)
2) No Chance to send the data from Useredit to Antispam like the Readme shows.
Snipp -


4.1.
A) Located @ Edit user profile
B) If you have you API keys (set in settings) -
you will be able
to submit user details to StopForumSpam.com and Akismet databases simply
Delete a post as spam and ban the user to submit them if you have these
options enabled.

--Snap
This settings not there

Any ideas ? I have the api keys for both antispam sites, and have disabled the VB Akismet Addon

I believe that option was removed. Go to thread(s) you want to report and click on moderation tools. You should be able to do all from there.

@alibass
Well , the option to check over Akismet in Usergroups is also missing . So all the settings are gone away ? Hmm, thats confuse, because all these things are in the readme.

Hopefully the author answers ....

@ Alibass - Thats BS. Some human spammers dont bother posting and just leave some crappy info on their profiles. We were able to report them before in the past version and we should be able to do that now. But that feature got removed. A very stupid decision to remove such a feature. Feature wise The 1.x version was superior to this is every way. I wish the author ever updated this or I hope some one else comes up with a better Anti Spam solution than this.

@ chatpalace check my earlier posts on this topic. The Author basically never even bothers visiting here let alone update or give a hand and a voice their work. You'll have to visit glowhost.com and ask for him to have a look , thats what I had to do, twice this year. The Mod is somewhat semi abandoned. Shame, such a good mod

On a scale of 1 to 10, how angry are you?

Well mate use your head and don't allow them to modify their profiles until they have posted so many posts. Damn this mod can't do all the thinking for you!
The very few that do get through I have my site setup to monitor them. If they are a spammer they're dealt with and quickly.

that doesn't work for me, most people that join our forums come from local references, google search's, and word of mouth and we are targeting a small like minded group of people from a specific national region. The last thing I want if to discourage my genuine members even more by using such sanctions.

But the point I was trying to get across wasn't about stopping spammers from filling up their profiles, I already have measurements for that. The point I was trying to make is that this mod should have allowed the users to be able to submit suspected spammers to the Antispam (Stopforumspam) database like we used to be able to do with the earlier version. So I was talking about this very function that was not included and of course the lack of interest from the original author. So back to you matey, no offense but perhaps you should use yours (head) next time and actually read what the other guy is trying to say before you just open your trap and jump on the bandwagon and make a complete arse of yourself.

I've run into a problem where spam-o-matic lists other users that signed up with the same ip, but when I click on them the link is broken.

The link is http://www.forum.com/forum/user.php?do=edit&u=11745, but the correct url is http://www.forum.com/forum/modcp/use...o=edit&u=11745

How can I fix this?
