a couple of users who were denied registration contact me manually. and i create accounts for them manually.

i am not sure how many genuine users i might have lost because of their IPs. but the lessening of spam is a major relief.

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.

When I was on 3.8, I very rarely got any spam registrations (and that's with me leaving the forum unattended for months). Within hours of installing 4.1.4 I had been inundated with spam registrations. I'm assuming that the spammers target regularly upgraded forums, as they assume they will be active.

Just tested this on my test 4.1.4 installation and was able to register with no problem :confused:

I really hope that's what is actually happening to my forum :) and not what Sushubh said :erm: the last thing I want is to lose some real quality users.

Ive had a wave of spammers who register, post some vaguely "normal" posts (although they tend to bump old threads so I can normally spot them) and then come back a week later to edit in the spam links.

Anyone got any thoughts on how to use Spam-o-matic to counter this kind of spam? I guess I can ban user editing but that's not great for other real users.

Any ideas?

Sushubh 19 Jun 2011 19:44

personally i would not like users to edit their posts after like an hour or so. a week? that is too much time. especially for freshly registered users.

i understand thread starters would benefit if they are allowed to edit their first posts. but this functionality can be reserved for regular folks who have more than 10/20 posts.

just my 2 cents!

I'm getting users posts quarantined with no bad words... I think they may be editing their posts for spelling mistakes... not sure anyone else having an issue?

Most are fine but there are some getting clouted and cannot see why?

after installing 4.1.4 for some reason it wont let me add a spammer to StopForumSpam any idea how to fix this

thecore762 21 Jun 2011 22:59

Is it possible to allow people from the same IP to register? it seems like people are being blocked.

Lover1 22 Jun 2011 01:55

THIS! is a MUST have! Thank you very much.

right now i have over 70000 threads awaiting moderation, how can i automatically prune all of them, my site times out when i try accessing moderation

rolfw1 22 Jun 2011 12:27

Can't see how can you have 70,000 threads in moderation, the mod doesn't work retrospectively and surely your forum can't be that busy?

Donkon 22 Jun 2011 12:56

nm, don't need help anymore, found the prune option. Pruning 80k threads that this put in moderation queue. I reviewed the first 100 or so and most do seem to be spam posts
