Anti-Bot: Are You Human/Bot?

Insight

Is it any great coincidence that the day I upgrade this mod to version 2.3 I get a torrent of spam users signing up?

I have been on member activation for a while now as the bots seem to be getting past both this and capctha and haven't had any new bots register for months.

Now I upgrade this and get 5 within minutes of upgrading and another 5 in the following day? This seems fishy to me...

Ever since i installed this mod on my smf 1.1.11 the bots just stopped. completely! i have settings to random and both questions.

It must be a coincidence as this mod helps to block spambots, NOT lead them right in!! :D

BTW, i'm looking for a compatible RC4 version of this mod. Can someone please help?

Go to Admin panel > registration > Settings > then check "Enable MOD Are You Human:"

In my experience, the best settings to block spambots are:
- Select the Question: "Random Question"
- check "Order Rand the Answers:".

Also, make sure that "Method of registration employed for new members" is set to "Member Activation" so as not to make it too easy for spambots.

When I try to run install1.php I get this error:
Fatal error: Call to undefined function db_query() in /home/******/public_html/Forum/install1.php on line 10

Anyone know how I can get this db_query to run?

Hi all, 

I have worked for 4 days trying to figure out why I have these errors on are you human?.  It is bedeviling me and driving me insane.

Can anyone fix this problem?

It involves line 190, 189, 185

See attached file.

I just cannot figure it out.  Gawd.

I have been having some issues with people registering.

When asked the question Are You Bot? If the user selects No they get the following error...

Please confirm that you are human in order to proceed with registration.
Bots are not allowed to register.

Not sure what you mean, you deleted the register.template files? and then reuploaded the same files? Not sure how that helps lol

Sorry, I am stupid and/or blind. Where do I find the instruction what to add manually to other themes?

Hey all...

Sorry for posting this in more then one topic some active mod creators I contacted but since the creator has not been online Ill ask here.

Im having an issue, I exported my database with this deactivated but not un-installed.

What I need to know is what does this modify in my database so I can MANUALLY erase it?

Thanks in advance,
Matt

How do I fix this? It will not let anyone register on my forum, hxxp:quietpietime.com [nonactive]

I think it's because I deleted the mod, instead of uninstalling it first.

What's the point of this? Is the captcha not enough?
Obviously not or forums wouldn't continue to get bot registrations and spam. There are bots that can read OCR, same as there as bruteforcers that can brute force Form logins using captcha/ocr.

Quote from: TEOC2 on November 09, 2007, 10:22:28 AM
I would like to see this mod replace captcha as it is now, its just not good for elderly or poor sighted people.

Most properly implemented Captcha includes an audio link so the visually impaired can also listen to it, something humans can do, but as of yet spam bots can not. (but I'm sure they are working on it! ;)

Personally I think a random math question which uses images for the numbers & operation requested would be the safest way to go.Imagine trying to code a bot that can read the image of a number then an image of a function ( + for example) then image of another number. Kind of a captcha# captchaoperation captcha#=   type question.I've been working on such a system, but its far from done.Should be usable by any forum, or anything using PHP actually.

For example: randomcap# randomfunction + - / or *  randomcap# as shown below (any answer other than 1292 and registration would fail)
