Hello,
Here i am sharing some spam Protection tips that i have personally used! For peoples who got hundreds of spam threads/posts from bots type users.

1st We start with vBulletin Default Options

1:
Make a New Group Based on "Registered Members" Group and name it whatever you like, eg: Verified Users, Active Members. and Turn ON Thrrad Posting For this usergroup.

2:
Turn of thread posting for "Registered Member" unless they reply in 5 or some Threads.

3:
Make a new "Promotion" in Usergroups>Promotions.
User Group = Registered Member
Set Reputation = Level to 100 or something you like,
Days Registered = 1 or greater.
Posts = 5
Promotion Type = Primary UserGroup.
Reputation Comparison Type = Greater of Equal
Move User to Usergroup= Verified Users or The UserGroup You Created in Step1

4:
Now here we need a 3rd Party Plugin. Install Spam-O-Matic Plugin By Glowhost n your forum and activate it. You can get this plugin from vb.org


Hope this will control spamming on your forum

If it needs instructions, there's room for improvement.
Give users what they actually want, not what they say they want. And whatever you do, don't give them new features just because your competitors have them!
