All of this is already correctly set, with the exception of some of the options. The only options that are not set are Akismet Key, Newbies Manager is turned off, and Auto-Moderation is disabled. To re-emphasize the point, I've been running the Spam-o-Matic for about a year and a half without any issues. This only popped up after the upgrade to 4.2.

check on default skin also check to see if any templates need a revert. Have you tried removing all files from the ftp and the xml and doing a full reinstall

Manual Registration
by pokermagic
27 Nov 2012 17:21

Hi, I was wondering if there was a way to manually register a user that is being blocked from signing up.

I am still getting the same error "Registration denied, this forum runs an active policy of not allowing spammers. Please contact us via the "Contact Us" page link if you believe this is in error"

I checked the stopspamforum site and input his email and IP but it came back clean.

What other options do i have? I don't want to turn off the spam filter just for him this one time if possible.

Thank you.

Sounds like you have names ticked for mod to check at SFS. If you do, un-check names and then mod will only send IP and email addy's to be checked.

Hmm... not sure what is going on but I have users telling me they are getting false positives, and I sitll have some spam slipping through the cracks.

I'm sure I'm only getting emailed once for ever 10 people that have the issue trying to register ...

Same ... actually when going to 4.2 is when this became an issue.

Is there any option in this mod that instead of denying registration, they goes in MODERATION so that I can check them myself if they are really spammer or not .. because denying registeration right away can deter lots of legit users. Also, generally people on dynamic IPs face problem as their IP gets blacklisted because once it was used by a spammer!

Our site has been flooded with new registrations from Vietnam recently, mostly using a @yahoo.com.vn email address. And they aren't blocked by Spam-O-Matic, unfortunately.

Any thoughts on how to block these spammers? Is it possible to block all registrants with @yahoo.com.vn addresses?

Edit: never mind, found this in ACP - User Banning Options

I have installed this great mod but it has false positive by denying legitimate user from registration.

In such situation how do i allow them to register?

I usually create an account for them myself in the ACP and send them the details. That only happens maybe once a month at the most so may be more difficult on much bigger forums.
