Stop the Registration Bots

vB Version: 4.2.0 Rating: (20 votes - 4.50 average) Installs: 302
Released: 16 Jun 2010 Last Update: 07 Feb 2013 Downloads: 2163
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Template Edits Auto-Template Additional Files Translations  

Stop the Registration Bots for vBulletin 4.2.0 PL3 and up.

This mod will check the the time it takes for a vBulletin registration form to be submitted. If the form is submitted faster then humanly possible, the registration will be denied and the admin contact can be emailed about the event.

First we will add a custom hidden field with a hash. Second we will insert a randomly named hidden field with a random value. This should make it a bit difficult to program a bot since the field names on all sites will be different as well as the values.

Time stamps to check the time spent on registration submission are stored in a DB table and private.

Installation is very easy.
Template edits.
Files to upload.
Product xml file to import.

Backup your database before any install or upgrade.

To upgrade from 2.x to 4.0.2, remove the existing Stop the Registration Bots product in the ACP and then follow the installation file instructions.

Hey guys. I really want to get this mod to work but cant currently.
I found out why. I cant seem to edit my registration template. It just hangs on the loading screen forever so i was wondering....
Is there any way i can do this template edit manually? Not from within ACP i mean.
I really would like to get this mod going again.

Using this with 4.1.12 and it is a fantastic mod! I have a couple of barriers of entry for would-be spambots but thismod is catching a good 90+% of them before they even get to the others. Definitely thumbs up on it!

The 'Type =' part of the query is obsolete and no longer supported by newer MySQL installations.

Either delete that part of the query to use the default storage engine or replace it with 'Engine ='

Until the author fixes it, just edit the .xml file with any text editor prior to installing.

Then I can't help you. If you've changed line 8 I can't imagine why it would still say you have " 'TYPE=MyISAM' at line 8" if you really don't.

Maybe you tried to upload the original file? Maybe you forgot to save it after editing it?
