As of 23 Nov 2017 this modification has been withdrawn.

The ever popular "Miserable Users" modification.

Basically a way to really annoy anyone you don't want visiting your forum. Credit to Zzed for the original idea.

When classed as miserable, a member suffers ;

1. Slow response (time delay) on every page (20 to 60 seconds default).
2. A chance they will get the "server busy" message (50% by default).
3. A chance they will get redirected to another preset page (25% & homepage by default).
4. A chance they will simply get a blank page (25% by default).

If they get past all this okay, then they will be served up their proper page.

Note: All the above are set in vBulletin Options > Miserable Users.

To Install ;

Download the xml file to your pc and import it into vbulletin as a product.
Ceate your 'Miserable Users' usergroup and set the value of this group, and your preferred other settings, in the modifications settings (vBulletin Options > Miserable Users).


To make a member suffer just edit their profile - add them to the Miserable Users group (it will work as either the primary group or as a secondary group). There is also the option to set ip addresses.

As per post #63, since nothing I try causes this message, there is nothing I can do unless someone gives me admin access to their server so see what the cause is.

Hi Paul M,

I've got this installed and also get the same eval()'d error that some other people are getting. I tried disabling all my plugins (including CMS and Blog) with the intent of re-enabling individually, but the problem still exists with all plugins disabled.

If you'd like access to take a look at the issue in my environment, please let me know through PM and I'll send you details.

P.s.... loved this mod in previous version!

This is a weird problem caused by some server set-ups - they seem to be sending extra headers as part of the delay code. I have no idea why they do this.

The only answer appears to be to change the way the delay works slightly, which I have done in 4.0.6.

Excellent mod! I am running a local forum (where people physically get together) and this will be an excellent addition to deal with a few people.
