You can edit that usergroups permissions the same as any other banned users group. Does that solve that problem?

2. Just report them to SFS. I try never to delete any posts or users. As I said elsewhere they get moved out of circulation...

So then would the soft delete option in the screenshot not do the trick?[/QUOTE]

Ideally being able to move all posts to a selected forum and the user to a chosen group would be my preference...

Ok, i first posted this yesterday in the 3.8 Thread of this Mod. Someone told me that support is only given here, so I post it here now.

This is what happend after I installed this Mod for vB3.8 on one of the Boards I am responsible for.

http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...9&postcount=50

Someone able to explain why that happend ? After I deinstalled it, all was fine again. Then I re-installed the old StopForumSpam for 3.x and its ok again. Just that Mod here is what caused issues.

With the 3.8.x version if I chose the option of deleting a user, the user is deleted first then I'm taken to the SFS submission page. Again I would like the option of just submitting to SFS without having to delete or ban, however if it's not an option I think the SFS page should appear before the user is deleted...

It doesn't appear the submit to SFS function is working from admincp whether I chose ban or delete option. I haven't tested whether it works when I delete a thread as spam yet because the users I'm banning have zero posts.

The reason support is given here in this thread, is because this mod is supported on version 4+ only as you can see in the mod description at the very top of every page in this thread.

Anyways in your case you might try disabling all other mods and keep SOM enabled and see if you still have problems. If not, then re-enable each mod, one by one that you disabled until you see where the conflict is. You can report that in the SOM 3 thread that you originally posted in. Who knows, there may be some updates there some day.

As mentioned several times recently the function you are referring to is no longer supported and will be removed in v2.

The idea is to report spammers who have posted actual spam, not arbitrary users who may or may not be guilty of being a spammer.

Is there any chance that you would add Bad behavior integration to this in the near future?

Now that recaptha is cracked, spam-o-matic is vital spam protection.
Bad behavior would block spam bots and content scrapers from the site.

It's possible, send me the link so I can learn more about it.

Alfa1 11 Jan 2011 21:39

Will get the the information. Thanks.

I cant send you any PMs it says your box is full, but this is what I wrote to you:

This seems like a good thought. I will put it on the list for possible inclusions into version 3.0. Depending on the number of user requests it may be bumped higher on the priority list. This seems like it would need extensive testing because even blocking one legit user can be a bad thing for a forum owner. What concerns me is the delisting process which they say takes about 5 minutes.

Most forum posters who take the time to post, are not going to take 5 mins to delist and then time again to re-post I fear.

I will follow Bad Behavior and do some more research on it though as its an interesting solution.

Alfa1 12 Jan 2011 01:56

Thanks. I deleted some PMs. Would be an interesting addition.

Thank you! 8) This put a hard stop to an hard and fast Russian spam attack.

When you from admincp choose to ban a user and you submit, it should open the ban window.. it does in fact do that, but if you changed the "name" of your modcp then it leads to 404. You might want to make sure it's parsing the $vbulletin->config['Misc']['modcpdir'] instead of just "modcp" :)

People who have installed this mod - have you found that it helped cut out the spammers registering on your site?

I cant speak for everyone else, but I am biased.

For kicks, I turned off human verification completely in vBulletin options, and this is the stats from today.

Spam-O-Matic Statistics:
165 Spammers Denied Registration

4 got through the filter.

Turning human verification on should make those 4 an even lower number.
