Ozzy, I love your mods, I really do but expand your train of thought, not everyone uses VB the way you think.

This would be a perfect mod from one of my clients that uses VB only as a DB and not for forum use. There are many mods here that some would think are ridiculous, but there are many different uses for VB then one would imagine.

The problem is I would have to know the exact fields that are filled out during registration. If you add some extra fields, they need to be taken into consideration. I have seen sites that have upwards of 15 extra fields, so I would have to know each one.

Sure it probably could be coded to auto read them, but would it not be easier to get a mod that would read the info from the DB, then display it in a table?

Seems it is not going to be as easy to implement the DBTech's AUT mod as I thought it was. I can get it to show up in the post correctly, but the user gets no notification of the mention, nor does it show up in either members profile.

So I am going to have to put this on the shelf for a bit till I can really dig into the code to figure out a way to make it compatible.

I hope you'll find a way to achieve this.

And yes, it would be great if multiple threads would be solved somehow. It could be moderated after they are created, but in a way it beats the purpose of having mod to automatically create welcome threads, when you need constantly keep an eye on it. I know it's hard to reproduce, but something creates these multiple threads.

EDIT: I found out how to reproduce multiple threads. Actually it's very easy, at least on my site.

Register test user, have in settings that threads is created after email confirmation and when you receive email, don't use correct email confirmation link, use one that's incomplete. For example:

This is correct link for my test users:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

It's enough just to "shave off" a bit of code at the end, like this:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Using link like this will produce multiple threads creation. It usually produced two threads, but in one occasion (yes, I tried it multiple times, it triggered multiple threads constantly) it produced three.

Also, you can use link for manual activation, by using this link:
http://slobodni.net/register.php?a=ver

Just don't use correct email activation code and you'll have multiple threads. Actually, it seems that if you click very fast on the button after you try to enter code, you get as many multiple threads as many times you clicked on the button. Didn't checked out this thoroughly though, but you can certainly get multiple threads this way also.

Please try testing on your site, I hope you'll have same results and I hope you could solve this problem somehow. I'll change email message, enter more info for users, but they usually don't read instructions, as I see that error message they receive after this is actually acurate, but to no avail.

Just found this: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=82693

I know that you know much more about coding than me (actually, almost everyone knows more about coding than me ), but it looks like parsing problem to me. Anyway, if this link helps you in any way, great. If not, I hope you'll find a way to sort things out.

It may help, but I don't think so, I believe what needs to be done is when you mention someone in a post, what ever AUT writes into the mods tables, needs to be done with this mod also. So I need to go through what tables Fillip updates, and add that to the posting hook of this mod.

Well, can you execute your mod in a way that you send text to later parsing, what will activate AUT (or whatever mod for that reason) and it will parse text as if it was posted by user?

Also, I wrote it before, even if you quote text made by your mod, mentioning doesn't work, which looks strange to me, like this text isn't same as if it was produced by human (regular user).

There's something strange with this.

Try to quote text, parsing should work all right with quoted text, but it doesn't.

As I stated earlier, I got it to show correctly.
Now the issue come in with integrating it into the AUT mod, updating the DB with the same info as if you were making a post in the front end like normal. The way any auto posting mod works, is it inserts the post info directly into the DB, thus bypassing any mod that runs on a new post, so if you want something added to it, you have to update whatever you want when it inserts it's info.

I thought it's possible to mimic real human actions somehow with mod.

Anyway, you know better than me.

Did you managed to replicate bug with multiple threads created when you use invalid email confirmation link?
