vB Version: 3.7.1 Rating: (15 votes - 4.73 average) Installs: 204

This is an updated version of my previous extension, Spam Decimator 1.0.x. This is for vB versions 3.7.0 and up. It may work with 3.6.8PL2 and up, but I cannot confirm this.

Features Include:

-Ban a spammer with two clicks.

-Delete all threads by a user (soft or permanent, ACP configurable)

-Delete all posts by a user (again, soft or permanent, choice is yours)

-NEW! Delete any spam comments and log them as well.

-Permit or deny mod/super mod access through ACP

-Email the spammer saying pretty much haha, caught you sucker (default email can be configured using ACP)

-Email the webmaster informing him/her of the attack

-Option to move all soft deleted threads to a specified forum (for safe keeping in case IP addresses or whatnot are later needed for legal proceedings or whatever)

Most everything here works with vB native functions (i.e. delete_thread, etc.), so forum, thread, and post counters are automatically updated.


Installing is quite simple. Simply upload the included files (three of them, decimator.php, includes/functions_decimator.php, and images/misc/spambutton.gif) preserving hierarchy and import the product file, and voila! you're done and ready to take on any spammer who comes your way.

***NOTE: if template hooks do not work for you, see the install file included in the package for instructions.

Other Stuff


Tested and functioning with vBulletin 3.7.1. I make no guarantees about compatibility with other versions.

Spam Decimator 2.0.0 is slated for a late June 2008 release, with a features list to follow.

That's basically it. Enjoy, and as always, click install

1.0.1 - Fixed problems with xml product file, validated for use with vB 3.5 Gold release.

1.0.2 - Fixed mod/super mod access bug as well as fixed templates for non-vB default styles.

1.0.3 - Fixed all known remaining bugs, rewrote email system to properly parse emails using native vB functions.

1.0.4 - Attempted to fix bug I can't find...updated main template.

1.0.5 - Fixed no mod access bug.

1.5.0 - Added post count limit to be decimatable, added plugin to control display of Decimator button. Fixed minor issues, rewrote several functions for improved performance.

1.5.1 - Fixed bugs, added vBulletin blog comment compatibility.

I gave a couple people permission to release updated versions, one recently, one a while back. Honestly, I have zero time to work on this right now, I'm okay with just about anyone rereleasing it for 4.0, just give me a heads up that it's out there.

My original was based on someone else's idea originally, I can't be too upset if someone does the same with mine
