Quote from: busterone on December 18, 2010, 10:01:52 AMThat is odd snoopy. I have seen this mod automatically stop hundreds of spammers myself over the last year. Example- I happen to look at the who's online list and see an ip that is registering for an account. I manually check that IP in SFS database and I see that it is listed. I then wait and see what the registration outcome is and it never makes it to admin approval. It simply gets stopped cold. I have observed this many times. If it was not intended to do so, then there is a serious issue going on. My stopped spammer count is over 14000 at this time, and I daresay, the number of admin approvals in the last year are less than 200. I am puzzled now..

Meaning it will hit the registration page and mug up and go on to the next site and do the same thing. Or just sit there for awhile bouncing then leave.So basically, Stop Spammer is not turning them away, THEY are turning themselves away.
Quote from: SugarD-x on December 18, 2010, 03:52:41 PMThank you to those that provided the tiny SMF2 RC4 fix. Everything is working great again! The only issue I still have is the non-existent members that are still requiring approval. The bug is very well known and will not go away. Other than that, everything is running perfectly!

Quote from: Wizzlefits on December 18, 2010, 01:24:28 PM@cypdevilThe path (I don't think) should have a period in it.Code Select Expand/smf/Packages/temp/./install_1.phpShould be like;Code Select Expand/smf/Packages/temp/install_1.phpLine 556 is correct. Somewhere a period is getting thrown in the file path. I know it has to be a simple fix, but I'm no coder.

Doesn't seem to work. It's likely caused by the fact that I upgraded from SMF1. The bug is quite old and I've seen multiple places on the internet complain about it in the past.
Quote from: MCK on December 18, 2010, 11:23:07 AMWould love to install this mod on my RC4 forum but don't want to risk the manual install. Any ETA on the RC4 update?
Quote from: Wizzlefits on December 18, 2010, 12:24:14 PMOh, just a suggestion, comment, question, whatever ya want to call it.Have you ever thought of combining the two mods into one install package? Since the two really do work so well together. I know M-DVD created Stop Spammer and all.... just a thought!
Quote from: Wizzlefits on December 18, 2010, 12:24:14 PMReally don't think the code is to blame! Think it has a lot to do with bots hammering the registration page.
Quote from: cypdevil on December 18, 2010, 11:31:44 AMI receive several tens of spambot registrations/day and they fall into 3 categories:1. Registration started but not activated (16)2. Registration started and activated (18)3. Registration started, activated and a spam message posted (2)The figures between parentheses were the number in each category yesterday.On the advice of another user, I tried to install Stop Spammer, hoping it will deal with all 3 categories, banning and deleting them as automatically as possible.Does it do all these?
Quote from: cypdevil on December 18, 2010, 11:31:44 AMCould you please rewrite for me how the line 556 should appear with my paths, so that I can copy/paste it? You will understand that my knowledge of php code is almost zero and I need my hand held at this stage.
QuoteThe past several weeks I have been working on upgrading my site. So I made a RC4 version of stopspammer. See attached.
