Works on my 4.1.12 forums :cool:

Thanks, I went ahead and installed it as well. I had an issue with having to hack the xml to fix mysql table create error. I read the solution elsewhere in this thread. It works great and I am looking forward to using it.

Thanks for all that valuable information that you just shared with us!! If we do not know what the error is then we can not help you fix it. Did you read the thread? There are a number of places where we have helped people with errors.

you know, it's mods that do sneaky things like this that give authors a bad name.. I disabled or minimized all the settings for 'credits' in the options.. Yet, unknown to anyone setting those visible options, when a moderator actually uses this mod, a HUGE advertisement with a graphic and coupon code and referral link is presented to them to start their own vbulletin board/forum using your hosting... Shameless....

I'm on the fence about this, it's an internal message that only moderators will see. This is a free mod, that boy does help when fighting spam, and is almost necessary.

Giving you the optional ability to remove credits in the footer is something other authors don't do.

So I wasn't hurt by it, what ticks me off are straight out advertisements stuck in my footer by authors, that kinda stuff is nuts (which this mod doesn't do)

You're always welcome to make your own. If you don't want to put your advertising it, let me know when you post it.

The problem i have is the huge graphic advertisement (with coupon and referral code) were not disclosed. I don't like surprises when I ad something to a forum. I was made to think the options in the admincp turned those off.. it doesn't mention that even if you turn it off, there's another giant ad. Also, every single post you get rid of will have an ad in the deletion comment as well (visible only to mods).

why dont you remove it then from the files

Its in the XML.

I do agree with vissa. As this hides from the admin, this secret advertisement of hosting to moderators is plain spam. It seems intended for moderators to start a competing forum, which would be simply malicious.

I find this very ironic for an addon that is supposed to fight spam. This should be clearly stated in the description of this addon.
