As of 23 Nov 2017 this modification has been withdrawn.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

Is there a way you could just enter the user ID of a member to make this mod work?

How would that be any easier than simply adding them to the miserable usergroup?

Well if you have set usergroups, why would you want a miserable usergroup? You might as well just ban them then and not even use this hack!! Maybe I am wrong but It would be nice to use this on members without them knowing! If you make a special usergroup, they will know somethings up!! My 2 cents

Correct. If the user were to find out what was going on they could easily work around it. So don't ever tell anyone. But there's no reason they should find out just because you added them to the MU group.

Do you mean, they could keep there promotion group and just assign them to an additional group? Wouldn't the know if they were assigned to another group?

Perhaps, if you had some system in place that told them, but not by default. Yes, as stated in the instructions this works simply by adding them to the MU group as a secondary, no need to move them there completely.

Because there is no reason to. Therefore Im not going to spend time changing a system that works as intended.

No one is going to know unless (a) You tell them, or (b) they know about this mod and guess (and then they still wont actually know unless you tell them)
