The last couple of weeks have been a constant battle against spammers. I hope this answers my prayers. Installed with fingers crossed.

Thank you GlowHost.

These last few weeks have been a spampede on my otherwise peaceful forum. Your Mod has blocked 5 attempted bot signups in the first hour it was installed and the posts from existing bot accounts are landing in my moderation queue and not on my forum.

Thanks again for a GREAT mod.

My forum is still small. Only launched a couple months ago and only 200 members so far. I get about 4-10 attempted spam registrations a day that are blocked by the above mod. Since installing, I have had 2 successful spammers. Otherwise, quite peaceful.

I get thousands of registrations per month. My site is practically spam free. I use this mod, some other mods and let my supermoderators moderate new registrations.

I would advise anyone to install this mod. It catches a lot of spammers. it should be default in vbulletin.

What other mods do you use with this? And do you have this check the username also?

Such an amazing mod that there cannot be enough praises said for it.

GlowHost, please PLEASE port this for a coppermine photo gallery mod, I'm in desperate need!

Yes, I have this check the username.

My other anti-spam measures:
- ISBOT (registration time check)
- vmail (email verification BEFORE registration)
- block fake/disposable email domains
- multiple accounts detection
- let super moderators moderate new registrations (impossible to moderate registrations on a big board by yourself)

And until recently:
- Bad behavior (block/ban spam bots and content scrapers)
I hope I will be able to get this functionality again. The old integrations do not support the latest version of BB and block Bing spiders.

This is probably one of the best mods I've seen here at vB.org in a long, long time. My hat is off to you for this!

I did notice your options for 2.0. Will it also automatically delete the user's signature, and homepage? We've got a lot of spammers signing up that enter their URLs there, and any physical deletion of anything in a 60GB database can have a performance impact.

Once again, thanks for an awesome mod!

We have close to the same setup, other than these 2:

- block fake/disposable email domains <-- I don't have a proper listing for this yet.
- let super moderators moderate new registrations (impossible to moderate registrations on a big board by yourself) <-- I don't have enough members to warrant this as of yet.

The Bad Behavior mod looks like it would need too much babysitting to keep it current, so I haven't bothered with that yet. I also use the Q&A for human verification.

You are welcome, thanks. It should get rid of most all traces of them. Of course I am sure we missed something somewhere. But if we see items that remain after deletion then we can add those into later versions of v2 based on feedback.

Its in final testing I was hoping to have it out by the end of this week but an elusive bug has resurfaced. Auto-Moderation should not moderate RSS posts and it was fixed...until this morning when I saw it happen again.

I would like to chase that bug down before we make 2.0 available.

I have attached some eye candy for you guys though so you know what is coming. See attached.

It this 1.2.8 the same as the 1.2.8 in this thread http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showt...=248470&page=4

Have you heard of many people having this work for 3.8.x?

GlowHost.com 13 Jan 2011 22:33

Yes, its the same. Does it work on 3? There are mixed reviews as you can see from the thread.

But these versions have been reported to work

Hey guys... just curious where the stats are displayed. I just installed an hour ago and can't find the location.
