Great work, thank you! Oddly this mod clashed with the following until I disabled it (Display unread)...

http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=231060

I'm also get a bitfield collision under:

Registration Spam Notification

An error occurred while processing the bitfield files, the following information was returned

but I can't read the rest of the error message even looking at the page source...

install .and work thanks

jrpark22000 10 Dec 2014 17:09

works like a champ, thanks for the .205 update.

For future updates, if we could get the option to disable the delete user feature in AdminCP that would be great. I'd prefer to only give the mods the ability to ban a user.

This mod sounds interesting.

Q: does it have the ability to log all registration attempts? I am currently using a modified version of Spambot Blocker and the version I have logs all registration attempts in the database for later analysis. I can see this mod has some abilities that are very useful, but I have come to love the log.

I have just installed your mod as I have had to delete Spam Hammer as support has closed. Hoping this does the job. Thanks, I will let you know how it goes on 4.2.3 beta

When deleting 3rd party info, even though Soft delete is NOT specified, blogs were left as soft deleted instead of physically deleted.

Hello i have been over run by spammers, like 75000 of them. I have installed the mod and every time i go to hit the delete, i come up with a http 500 error. What could be causing this, i have spent hours on trying to fix this forum, im literally going insane. lol

Check your server logs. It's probably overun of some server limits.
