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: 3424
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.

Been looking for help against all the spammer bots and this looks like it help tremendously. Our rate of spam registrants has been slowly climbing even with all the blocks in place.

Great hack BTW. I catch 6-10 a day.

Any chance of getting this to post to a forum when blocked, like the AE detector, rather than via email?

Suppose I wanted to change the address that the mail from this mod goes to, but didn't want to change my admin mail...

I see the operative line;

vbmail($vbulletin->options['webmasteremail'], $isbot_subject, $isbot_message, true);

How would I format hardcoding foo@foo.com in place of the 'webmasteremail'?

Got it.

vbmail("foo@foo.com", $isbot_subject, $isbot_message, true);

Allows the mail to go to foo@foo.com instead of the webmaster mail. We have the webmaster mail set up to go to a bit bucket, so that wasn't working for us.

Excellent mod, THANKS!

What is the possibility of having this mod automagically update the vB banned email domain list with the attempted email address?

Wow, Within 5 minutes of installing this mod I got this email:

The following user name with email address was blocked by the Is Bot mod: Mellisa - margo77@web.de (8 seconds transpired)

I love this thing!!!!


I get 10-20 new sign ups a day, I wonder how many of them are bots.... I guess I will start to find out.

Looking for some help. Installed this mod but nothing is happening. No emails and spammers are still getting through. I just ran an email test using the vbulletin diagnostics (set to email admin) and got the email fine. What am I doing wrong here?

Thank You soooooo much for this mod. It works fantastic. As like everyone else posting it stops like 5-10 a day on my site.

Thanks again as I really appreciate it. I was starting to get really annoyed with the number of spammers signing up constantly.

Cheers,

Steve

No, these are new ones landing in the moderation queue. I have all new registrations going to that queue. Apparently this mod doesn't work if new registrations go into the moderation queue.
