Is Bot: Registration Time Check
Mod Version: 1.0.0, by calorie (Coder) calorie is offline
Developer Last Online: Jun 2013 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 3.6.8 Rating: (66 votes - 4.88 average) Installs: 726
Released: 30 Dec 2006 Last Update: Never Downloads: 3427
Not Supported Uses Plugins Template Edits  

This mod calculates the time it takes to go between these two pages:
  • /forum/register.php?do=register
  • /forum/register.php?do=addmember
The point is to try and prevent bots from registering at your forum when the time between the two pages is humanly impossible, assuming that humans actually take the time to complete the registration page.

Should a user be blocked from registering at your forum, an email will be sent to your vB webmasteremail address and the user will see the vB noregister phrase message, so no screenshot is necessary.

I just received my first email about a potential spammer:

The following user name with email address was blocked by the Is Bot mod: osceshop - osceshop@cashette.com (XX seconds transpired)


Needless to say it's feels good that one didn't get away without getting trapped

Could you please add more info into the mails?

Maybe the IP addy? Resolved too perhaps?

Anything else you can think of as well

Great mod dude...hats off to ya....

edit: how about auto ban too? or maybe posting to a special forum with the details as well?

Perhaps a way to change the time without re-importing the product every time?

Other than thank you very much, and installed!

Again, I have to give my many thanks to the developer of this Mod. It blocks about 8 spambot registrations a day on my site. I'm using a similar mod on my phpBB2 site and both mods have saved me and my moderators plenty of anguish.

Good gawd... works awesome... even though I have other spam measures in place... they do not catch everything.

One more idea for this:

How bout the option to add Groups who receive the email too?

This is such a great mod I think it deserves a consideration for being part of the core vB.

I left it at 15 seconds, and during the night, caught MORE.

The following user name with email address was blocked by the Is Bot mod: deosaest - deosaest@cashette.com (1 seconds transpired)

The following user name with email address was blocked by the Is Bot mod: presley - presley@meta.ua (2 seconds transpired)

The following user name with email address was blocked by the Is Bot mod: DosugXT - dosug-x@nm.ru (1 seconds transpired)

WOW I am so happy, these were getting by before and I am running 3 other mods to prevent spam but this one is catching them.

Nice mod. How long before the spammer applications start adding a delay though?

thank you.

just to verify....

after adding that line to the registration template and uploading the product, there is no listing of it in the vBulletins Options menu.

correct?
