Thanks in advance.

The default settings should be fine and are made to work on 99% of forums.

Will give it a try for another couple of days and report back here. vbstopforumspam has logged and average of 15 entries everyday since I enabled it again.

Thats because that older mod logs every user who tries to register, instead of only the ones that actually get past the built-in vB registration system.

In other words, you are seeing checks of bots who would never be able to register anyways because they are unable to complete the built-in vB reg system.

This mod only checks users who are able to get past vBulletin's registration system, which reduces the strain on the stopforumspam.com system and generally optimizes the way vbsfs was intended to work.

Well, I got no response so thought I would try something...

I completely removed vbulletin from the server, uploaded a fresh copy (4.1.3), re-uploaded the config file, and then reuploaded Spam-O-Matic. I can't tell if it is working yet, but will keep checking.

Easy... try creating a new user called "china". Trust me... it works!

aw man... doesn't work still :( I'm really bummed. What could possibly be stopping it from working. Maybe I'll load the default vb template now and see what happens. Could that matter?

kwblue 17 May 2011 12:51

Nope, that didn't help :( I registered the username china no problem after setting the default template back and removing the old template entirely :(

Seriously, what could stop this mod from working??? I can't even turn the forum on for 2 hours without having to deal with 50 posts (or more)

kwblue 17 May 2011 16:11

I even have the footer links turned on and nothing shows :(

doctorsexy 17 May 2011 19:08

All working with 4.1.3.... smashin .. thanks

preemz10314 18 May 2011 20:54

Im a try this...i have been getting hit by spammers lately..somehow they are getting thru the human verification queestion

w3rk3d 18 May 2011 21:58

Can I just say?...This mod is a lifesaver!!! I've been using it for a little over a month and it's caught nearly 500 spammers trying to register! Thanks!

This is the best script for spammer , I had the old version until a few days ago and i didn't have any problem not a single spammer passed. I upgraded to version 2.0.2 and the system is still doing his job but i have some spammer that pass the system .

My problem if I can say like this is that the menu from users where you had the option to submit to stopforumpost is not there anymore, How can i submit a new user or a new ip to the database ?

TeknoSounds 19 May 2011 10:55

please go back and look at the FAQ on the first page, or posts within the last 5 pages of this thread...your answer lies there.

edyy 19 May 2011 14:08

I have readed that FAQ and there it say that will be inserted from version 2.5, my question was if is any other way to submit a user or ip to the database until that version appears.
