Well, if the email check is enabled and it passed, then it probably means the email is not in the SFS database.

Do the logs show any other spammers that were tagged by email?

yes, there are emails and ips fail to register.

I am not sure what that would mean then, perhaps SFS is not responding to your request and you have "allow registration" set if the communication fails.

Yes, "allow registration is abled. But whatever, it stops tremendous spammers on my board now. Thanks anyway. Marked as install.

You might test if your server is able to communicate with SFS by setting the option to disabled then trying to register with a spammer address. I just tried [email protected] on our forums and it was blocked.

Working fine on 4.0.8

[email protected] 26 Oct 2010 02:07

Installed this on 4.0.7 and I tried to do the old fashion ban and delete thread and it now says:

Warning: require_once(includes/functions_ghsom.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in [path]/includes/class_dm_user.php(1853) : eval()'d code on line 3

vmail (confirm email before registration) was also a real live saver in regards to spam and fake accounts being created. It prevents many fake registrations on my boards.
Unfortunately this hack is not available for vb4.

Please consider to add this function to Spam-o-matic.

AFAIK vBulletin does not need a mod for email confirmation, its already part of the basic install.

Had an extremely quick browse through this thread, there seems to have been 1 or 2 problems especially when the mod was newer. Is it more stable now? What current bugs/conflicts are there? Does it work with 4.0.7?

This could be the answer to my biggest vB problem! Looking forward to your replies

I am running it on 4.0.8 and it works great for me.

I am having an issue, where an Administrator with thousands of posts is having his posts put into moderation mode for having too many url's in it.

I have my moderation settings set to:

Auto-Moderation Minimum Post Count = 5
URL Count = 0

Don't know why the issue. I tried it from my account and my post was also put in moderation.

Any ideas?

GlowHost.com 28 Oct 2010 20:14

Does it affect all admins or just this one?

The difference is that the usergroup 'members awaiting email confirmation' has two different functions:
1) in the registration process. These members can be spammers or real members.
2) members that have already confirmed their email in registration, but their email account became inactive. These members are not spammers.

Problem 1: PM spam
Group 2 can have difficulty with their account and you want them to be able to contact staff to ask for help.

Group 1 should not be able to send PMs, because then they may send spam by PM.

Problem 2: Profile spam
Then there is the issue of profile spammers. Allowing users to register an account, without confirming their email address (vbulletin does allow registration even when the email confirmation function is on) in fact allows those same users to fill in profile fields, website link, and signature. So in short: profile spammers do not need a valid email address to add links to your site.
This is why there are so many vbulletin profile spammers.

You can solve this by changing the registration process and let users go trough email validation first, before they register an account. If the email is not validated, no account is created and users do not have the possibility to spam their profile, signature, website field or send spam PMs.

I installed your mod but it seems to need more checks IMO.

I was hoping to find some way to stop bots or a custom check, but didn't at all......

This mods only checks against a database, but would be cool to check the time it takes for the registraton, like "if registration time is less than 15 secs then deny".

I had this with Stop Bots Registration mod but it doesnt work on actual versions... would you consider adding some filter in the registration process?

Thanks a lot
