Yeah that's very interesting, because it only hooks into 2 hooks.

newpost_complete - if you use the post scan.
register_addmember_process - for the registration checks.

Its a very light mod.

It looks like we are both using the newpost_complete. Looks like it was the executionorder, I set mine to a lower number and re-uploaded the XML file.

Been using it for a week now. Happy to report that spam registrations have dropped from about 250 everyday to about 10 a day !

Would love to have a country safe list in the next version like the country block list option. I.e I should be able to add my country to the safe list, anyone registering from my country should not be flagged as spam.

Good support as well. Overall 5 Stars.

v1.3 - Added section to Allow or Block countries. Last version only blocked countries.

Thanks. Allow / Block countries is working a little weird though. There should be two lists Allow & Block not Allow OR Block.

If for example I choose to allow the US then all other countries will be blocked or I can't block indivual ones. Example if I choose Block UK then all other countries except UK will be able to register but if I choose to Allow UK then all other countries except UK will be blocked !

What do I do when I want to allow US and UK but block China ?? This is currently not possible.

An ideal way would be to have two lists, one for Block and the other for Allow. This would let me allow the countries that I want on my safe list and block spamming destinations like China or Ukraine. Nothing from the country on the Allow list should be blocked.

Btw the support from the developers is quite good. I get email updates of spam attacks with IP, countries and spammers email info.

In this scenario it sounds like those are the only two countries you would like to allow, so you would set the countries to ALLOW and put US,UK in the allow country list. All the other countries will be blocked.

The idea is to narrow down what countries you want to Allow or Block. If you just want to block countries from your site then set it to Block and enter the list of countries you don't want to register. Example.. I don't want China, Ukraine and Poland to register to my site, so I set it to BLOCK and enter the country code of those countries. If just want to allow countries I would set it to ALLOW enter just the countries I want to register, US,UK,JP

It actually works the way you want it to, you want to allow US and UK but block China and Ukraine. Two ways of doing this, you can either ALLOW the two countries you want or block the countries you don't want. Its easier to ALLOW if you already know the countries you want. So set it to ALLOW and put US,UK in the country list. If you want to BLOCK, set it to BLOCK and put CN,UA in the country list. This will do exactly what you want it to do.

Great news, we're working on some new things that I hope it helps forum owners get an idea on what happening to their forum.
