It isn't an issue with StopForumSpam being unavailable, as each as the indication, "Passed StopForumSpam checks. Sent to vBulletin Registration System."

Two examples from today:None of them are over the 90-day setting, which we use as recommended. We also use the recommended 30 minute setting for "StopForumSpam: Data Fetching - Cache".

Any suggestions? (Site: Sysnative.com)

Thank you, simonhind. Believe me, China is hitting other forum software just as hard.

Since I posted earlier today, we decided to supplement with NoSpam! Image Enhancement (New version of No Spam! for Custom Image Verification) and will see how that goes.

In the meantime, I'll share information about AbyssGuard with the rest of the Admin Team to consider.

I have been using this one and it really works well.

I installed this three weeks ago after one day coming on and having over 100 pending accounts most of which were spam, in those three weeks it has stopped 6987 Spammers which is an insane number, still though 20/30 are getting through per day but as I have members on approval then we catch them away.

MySQL Error : Unknown column 'akvbghsfs_akismet_permissions' in 'field list'

To fix this I had to remove an old file called :
?/forum/includes/xml/bitfield_glowhostspamomatic.xml
So make sure you remove this file if you are upgrading, this file is not included in the new 2.0 version.

Thanks for this, helped me out huge

I've just read this in the read me file

'' ==
* Please note, for this plugin to work, cURL must be installed on the server
or allow_url_fopen enable in PHP settings '' What does this mean?

Its a server setting, you would need to speak with your hosts or if you run your own server you would need to make sure these settings are available.

First of all I would like to say that this is a fantastic piece of software, thank you very much for sharing this with everybody. I installed it 1 day ago and when I tested it some more I will definitely donate to the author, much deserved!

Question: Is it possible to check the current user database to see if users match the stopforumspam database? I have a forum with over 500,000 users and I'd like to check if there are spammers amongst them.

Perhaps it would be possible to add the feature I described?
