As of 23 Nov 2017 this modification has been withdrawn.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.

There is no difference between them, other than the version number, so your issue must lie elsewhere.

Well I down loaded this ages ago but acually found the need to install it this morning We have a sexual predator ( lewd and lascivious molestation of a victim under the age of 12)that doesn't like the fact his picture is on the site. this is just perfect I had banned him once and he has come back with another profile (both facebook connect) but now my members want to play with him so this should crip him up just enough to make it fun without him screwing up a lot of the forum.

Off topic posts removed. This is a support thread for the MU modification, not a place to discuss disputes you may have with people.

Which part of OFF TOPIC did you fail to understand.
Post again about it in here and you will get suspended from the site.

Does anyone know a way to allow forum mods the ability to set usergroups, rather than just the admin? I'd love for my mods to be able to use this.

there are days I just want to stick this to a user like a voodoo doll pin and take it out before they get wise or check if someone else is having issues. Now I am becoming the sadist Paul and its fun Mu haha

A moderator doesn't have the ability to change usergroups... They can view a user's profile in the modcp, but not change anything. Unless I'm missing something, but I'd love to know if anyone has a way for moderators to have access to the MU setting.
