Spambot Stopper - Prevent Spambots from Registering
Mod Version: 1.0.1, by kh99 (Coder) kh99 is offline
Developer Last Online: Aug 2017 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 3.8.x Rating: (11 votes - 4.55 average) Installs: 60
Released: 01 Feb 2013 Last Update: 08 Mar 2013 Downloads: 285
Not Supported Uses Plugins Auto-Template Re-usable Code Translations  

What is it?
----------------------------
This mod rejects registrations where the form is filled out in less than a minimum time. You can configure one of the following actions to be taken when an automated registration is detected:

- Show a "No Permissions" page
- Display the "Successful Registration" message but without creating an account
- Redirect the user to any URL you choose
- Reload the registration page with an error message of your choosing

You can also provide a list of email addresses to be notified each time a registration is blocked.

In the future, I'd like to add some simple logging and statistics, and a summary type of email notification (because people seem to quickly get tired of the single emails).

Note: I coded this myself from scratch, but I would like to acknowledge a couple of previous mods that used this same idea, by users Calorie and noppid, and maybe others. In any case, I believe this one adds some features that the others don't have.

Other advantages: no ads or links, no abuse of update notifications, no disappearing features, no threats to delete the mod (it will never be deleted, at least by me). Also, translations are allowed.

Installation:
----------------------------
1) If you have "Is Bot", "Stop the Registration Bots", "Spammers Suck!", or another mod that works on registration time, note any admincp settings for that mod then uninstall it.

2) Import the product XML file from the Product Manager.

3) Go to Settings > Options > Spambot Stopper Options and configure the desired settings.

4) IMPORTANT: try to register a new user to make sure that there are no problems with humans registering. If you want, you can also temporarily set the minimum time to a higher value (like 60 seconds) and test to see if the spammer rejection is working.

You're right - I made a mistake when I uploaded 1.0.1, and you're the first one who's tried to install the vb3 version (or at least you're the first one to report the problem).

I'll upload a fix shortly...

OK, this should be the correct file. (I had accidentally attached the vb4 zip file).

I also haven't kept the vb3 version up to date because no one had installed it, so it doesn't have all the features of the vb4 version. But the basic function of it works. I'll update it when I get a chance.

Great Mod, I had alot of anti-spam measures on my forums and just too much stuff in my VB 3.8 forum to move into VB4 just yet. Really nice addition, looking forward to the possible update on features.

Yes this one seems to be the best one so far. Of course the paid ones are a bit better but NO THANK YOU on buying them when we have this one. An update of this one plus a stats on forum page option would be just wonderful. Hopefully you get motivated and do this for us. Thanks again/

I couldn't reproduce that. What were you doing when that happened, just trying to register? If you do nothing but disable this mod does it go away?

This is kicking a** on my vb 3.8.7 PL 3 forum! Love it! It's stopping bot registration right and left, and not stopping the legitimate peeps. So far, so good.
