This is modified from a suggestion by Feldon23 at vBulletin.com dated August 15, 2009. It is especially useful for vBulletin forums requiring Admin validation of new accounts.
  1. Go to Admin CP | Languages & Phrases | Search in Phrases

  2. Find: Varname $vbphrase[newuser], Text "There is a new user, $username at $vboptions[bbtitle]"

  3. Click on Edit this phrase

  4. Translation for 3.8.x and 4.x prior to 4.1.4:


    Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
    Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

    Version for 4.1.4 and up


    Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
    Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

  5. Click on Save

v1.01 Added option to ban user if desired, instead of deleting. Tested on 3.8.4 PL1. Works for me.

v1.02 Added links for IP check. Tested up to 4.1.4

This is a nice and simple idea.

But instead of using and remove user, why not ban it ? In my opinion it would be better to include it in your ban list and not simply remove it. Otherwise Spammer will be able to try to register again.

I suppose you could do that. I prefer to minimize database size by deleting such accounts. If they are persistent, then I ban them but usually it's not necessary.

Try adding this line to the notification translation:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

I haven't tried it yet but I think it should work.

Thanks for the suggestion.

Now tested on 3.84 PL1. The ban option works as expected.

Original post modified as v1.01 to include the addition of the Delete option.

1. Try to add the sending address to your Gmail address book and/or whitelist.

2. Check with your host to ensure they are including the appropriate headers (SPF) in the emails being sent.

Why not just use the vBStopForumSpam mod itself?
