Purpose

The purpose of the Stop Forum Spam database integration is to add an effective way to reduce the amount of Spammer registrations on your forum.

Limitations

As of v1.0.0, the modification only works with new registrations. A later update will allow submission of previously registered users as well as integration with moderator controls and user profiles. Also, the modification will eventually have the ability to have more actions besides rejection of the registration.

Installation

Installation includes the uploading of 1 file as well as installing 1 product through the Administrators Control Panel.
  1. Upload class_sfs.php to your forum's /includes directory.
  2. Install product_kk_sfs_integration.xml through the ACP (ACP -> Plugins & Products -> Manage Products -> [Add/Import Product]
  3. Modify the tolerance level, if desired. This can be found under the registration options.
  4. Enjoy

Default Tolerance Level

By default, the tolerance level is set to 2. Meaning it must match at least 2 out of 3 fields (Username, IP, and Email) to be rejected. If it only matches 1 field, it will be permitted to go through.

Release History
v1.0.0 -3/28/2010

It seems (from the description, as I have the other mod vbStopForumSpam installed myself) to have the option to allow something through on 1, 2, or 3, and can be any combination of the fields it checks. The other one allows you to disable one or more of the options for forbidding users to come through.

I wouldn't say so, I'd suggest it's a completely new one (admittedly I've not looked this over) but built on similar lines.

If the developer works on some of the other features, I'd certainly be interested, as it will have more options that the other mod. Until that time, I'm just gonna tag it.

Thanks for this...giving it a whirl. Marked as installed.

Anyone have any experience with this thing on it's "High" setting? Any false positives ? I'll try "Medium" for now.

Yes, this is completely new. My original class had the options to disable checks, but I needed something pronto, do I removed them. The reasons include with my fail method (tolerance level), a user could theoretically cripple the functions of the modification because of disabling two, yet keeping the same medium tolerance, meaning that it will never fail. There is logic I have to sort out before I implement such a feature. I am always open to feature suggestions, especially as I would like a complete solution that is as effective as can be.

Viarun, I have not had any experience about the false positives given by the high setting as it was just coded. The error message does suggest the user contact the administrator through the contact us link. This may be changed by editing the phases.

Your new mod here works better than the other one, where it actually works according to the criteria, where the other mod even tells me I'm a spammer. this mod all members not actually on the Stop forum spam list can register. The other mod blocked many who were not on the list and I think its a bug in the setting to block registration if the call to Stop forum spam times out even if its set at disabled. Clicked installed and nominated.

I am glad that I could have helped you. Hopefully I don't get too many false positives.
