Some of the info you posted I already knew. I have never had a problem as I have always installed the right version needed and I know some forum admins are just to lazy to try and find there own fixes I am sure you see many posts of members asking for help (not just on these forums) but are to lazy to search for the answer. One of the reasons I don't answer a post right away gives them time to search. Another reason why I said what I did above as it makes others want to ask questions and search either here or google :)

Is there a way to approve an initially rejected registration marked as spam? I do not see any such options.

All I see is this for the particular account in question:

2012-08-12 05:09:45 72.53.xxx.xxx wendydavis423 [email protected] Spam-O-Matic Tagged ip - 72.53.xxx.xxx - Spammer Found and rejected.

Could be two things
1. You have vb3.8 and are using a plugin for vb4.x.x
2. Revert header template as you could have some php messed up in it
Or 3. Both 1 and 2

A. probably not. It might but its not recommended as we have not tested it and it was not built for vB3. There is an older version that works on vB3 here. http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=248470

Marka,

You might want to try downloading and installing the one linked above. If this one was written for vB 4.x, there are likely code references which are not valid for vB 3.x boards. If you install it "on top of itself" (i.e. don't uninstall previous version, but upload files and import XML in "overwrite" mode), hopefully it will keep your settings and stats.

Regarding #2, are you saying to revert to the default header template for vB?

Thank you for your assistance. For the record, I am not all that versed with vB, and for the past years have had assistance running the forums. The person who ran my forums has gone on to greener pastures, so I am left to a crash course.

as to your header as you never pointed out it was default vb skin then the problem is because you are using a plugin for vb4 that will not work for vb3 as alot has changed in the php

Or we could just hang him in the public town square and stone him. I'd vote for that option just for the entertainment. Seriously, television is total crap these days.

I can't thank you enough for this mod, and can't believe I've never used it before! For some reason, for the past few days, I've had an influx of spammers joining, even though I have captcha, security questions and all the rest of it. It was beginning to take up so much of my time.

However, since I've installed this awesome mod just a few hours ago, it's already stopped 12 spammers from joining!

Once again, thank you! :)

My site just went from PR2 to PR3 but still the flood of spammers this weekend has been so strange. I keep checking the logs because I feel like legit new registrations are being banned. Every time though it checks out and is a spammer. I'm just using email as a criteria as well. Something like 80-85 this one weekend.

Thank you so much for this mod. I installed it a while ago and wasn't automatically blocking new registrations because I only got 1 or 2 bad ones a day, starting last week I have been getting about 20 - 30 bad ones a day. I turned on blocking registrations that were in the StopForumSpam database and it has made my life so much easier.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Seems to be working ok. Just installed it on 2 forums.

Is there a solution to the blog spammers?

Nevermind, my bad.
