What does 'Marking As Installed' do ?

* It helps you to stay on top of updates - members who have installed modifications will be notified whenever new updates are available.

* For security issues - vbulletin.org will contact all members who have installed a modification whenever a security issue is brought to their attention.

* Marking a modification as installed also helps me know how many people are using my work, giving me extra incentive to provide more features and new modifications.

I appreciate the support!

"Post Icons To Use
Default icon is the smiley face.
To chose a different icon, find out the icon number via the "Post Icon Manager" within the ACP"

What if want no icon?

Or have the bot post the welcome thread in a hidden forum, then move the posts to the welcome forum, once you know the user is not a spammer.

That was my thought too!

So I did. And also tested this by registering a new account, and the thread was posted with no icon.

I really dig the amount of thought you put into this, all the different thread title/content options really makes this not look like a bot, and the ability to customize them is first rate!

Thanks, I was hoping by adding ten of each, it would be more random than the ones with four options. The random function (php) does not work so well, but this should help it.

I didn't realize there were randomization options from Admin CP. I didn't get that from the screenshots. I'll give it a try, because I'm not sure the one I'm using (it has four fields) is working.

Yeah I did not screenshot the title / message screen, it's to big to make it look right.

If you do use this, don't forget to mark as installed.
