Quote from: snoopy_virtual on January 03, 2011, 08:00:56 PM@Angie KidneyKornerI suppose you don't have mod httpBL. If you had it you wouldn't have so many spammers registering.@pluggerI wouldn't recommend you to check usernames. A lot of normal names are already inside the DB, so it's not really worth it. I have been even thinking on deleting completely that option.
Quote from: snoopy_virtual on January 04, 2011, 08:22:10 PMIt's strange. I had to check today a few members I had no errors. Maybe the server was down just when you were checking.Are you still getting yellow icons?
Quote from: Angie KidneyKorner on January 03, 2011, 07:19:08 AMI don't think all of those triggers would be good indicators of a new registrant being a spammer.

I'm lost now. I thought that was already sorted.If it's not, contact me through Skype so I can understand it better and sort it.
Quote from: snoopy_virtual on January 05, 2011, 06:28:28 PMWhen somebody gets a yellow icon is because your server in not connecting with sfs server.But if it's yellow now and you check the same guy again it will turn to red or blue (depending in if it's on the DB or not). It will only stay yellow if there is no connection again with sfs server.At least that's the way the mod works for everybody. If it's not working like that for you there is a mistake somewhere.Can any of you contact me through Skype so I can see the problem with my own eyes and sort it?

QuoteVersion 2.3.9 - 9th January 2010 *Changes in the API key. From this version the API key is ONLY needed to report spammers, NOT to check them !Fixed the bug about once a member is marked "yellow" always stay yellow, reported by tm82 here with the solution proposed by himself +Added the buttons to "Check" and "Report" members also to the pages "Waiting for approval" and "Waiting for activation" +Added a system to check if the mod is ON, if it is up-to-date and if theconnexion with Stop Forum Spam's DB is OK *Changed 2 lines and added 10 new lines in language files ?Uninstall old version and install new one ?No need to edit manually any template file unless you are not using the default Theme and you have the files Register.template.php or ManageMembers.template.php inside the folder of the particular Theme you are using

Quote from: akc42 on January 07, 2011, 01:30:44 PMI just found a case where the unapproved member count gets to be wrong.This is because SMF (using 2.0RC4) doesn't adjust the count if the registration method is not = 2 (admin approval required), where as StopSpammer creates unapproved members if they are a spammer.... etc
Quote from: Sir_Trout on January 09, 2011, 12:56:56 PMJust installed this mod on Ver 1.1.12 and installed just fine with no errors. Then I checked if it connected to the remote host and it did. "Your host can make remote connection with the DB"The I went to "Awaiting Approval" to check out some new members and I can't see the mod?I went back to "Admin > Members > Registration > Setting" and the "Enable/Disable MOD Stop Spammer:" box was not check so I check and saved it. But when I come back it is still uncheck and I can see the mod any where?And Ideas on how to fix this?Thank You.-ST
