As I said earlier (maybe in the thread for the vbStopForumSpam version by pedigree), sometimes their server can appear down for some users and not for others, depending on where you are when you're trying to access it.

As long as you set it to "allow registration" when the database can't be accessed, you'll be fine.

I don't really understand why but just in the last month I'm all of a sudden getting waves of spam registration attempts that are getting passed this add-on. Thankfully I have my forum set to where myself or another admin has to give a manual approval on the account so technically I have not been spammed. But when I first installed this mod up until just a while ago none of the slimeball spammers were even getting passed the Spam-o-matic...now they are...I think someone found a hack or a security hole to exploit.

Are Spammers suck! and Spam-O-Matic compatible? Do they interfere with each other in any way?

Yes. They do not compete with one another but target different varieties of spammers. Glowhost is primarily about blocking human spammers. Spammers Suck is about blocking spambots.

BEAST! THANK YOU!

I'm confused...is Easy Clean up something we are able to run manually? If so, how? Our site has been hit pretty hard by spammer registration (almost 100 a day, which is the reason I set up this mod) and I'd like to have them removed if they match anything in the StopForumSpam DB.

Any help would be immensely appreciated!

This mod as great as it is will not help you with the clean up of already registered members to the site.

This is what I do for registration:

I have this mod set to check new registration e-mail, and IP address. I also have it set to auto moderate the first post only, in case someone gets past the mod. The only problem with this is that you have to pay attention to the post to see if it's been moderated, and then allow access manually.

The second thing that I do is use another mod I use is NoSpam!Image Enhancement by BOP5 I'm not really suppose to talk about other mods on this thread, but with the two combined I have few to no spammers.

Manual clean up is required for you at this point. However, with the use of this mod it may take a little time but you can not only clean but you may also submit the spammers when doing so.

Hi All-

We will have a fix for the MySQL ENGINE/TYPE bug that is repeatedly reported very soon.

Also, a couple other common problems, plus a new feature (well, maybe a couple small ones too) is being added which has been requested many times over. Not telling what they are but this will be ready soon for your holiday present from GlowHost. :)

We are not doing anything major here, mainly code cleanup and bug fixes, because of the need for a vB5 version.

Stay tuned!

PS a big thanks to djbaxter, TheSupportForum, ForceHSS and I am sure I missed a few for your great help and support of this mod.

Can someone PLEASE tell me how to fix the problem of posts that cannot be approved. The only solution is to physically deleted them and that's not a solution.

Is that referring to the database error when installing the product?
In the past couple of days I've had more spammers than the rest of my forum's history combined, so this is the first place I came to but I can't seem to install it :(
