Link to Mod

This mod allows the admin to pick trouble users and apply what amounts to a passive-aggressive method to encourage them to leave, by applying various 'problems' to them, for example a percentage chance of them seeing 'this has been disabled' error messages.

Current features:
* blank screen
* database too busy
* forum too busy
* redirect user to another page
* adds variable 1-100 second delay (configurable by admin, setting 1-100 second range)
* optionally disable search, unread replies, all unread
* Javascript popup message, configurable by admin, default is:
Quote
{membername}, you are not immune to anything that I have the power to do.

This annoying little alert box is visible ONLY to you.

Are you sure you want to annoy me?



Users to be added to the 'annoy' list are chosen through that user's profile. A list of the last ten active 'annoyed users' are visible through a new area in the moderation centre.

Many, many thanks to Dragooon for doing the work in porting this to RC2 for me :)


Due to the reliance on the moderation centre, this mod cannot be backported to 1.1.x

Don’t try to tell me that some power can corrupt a person. You haven’t had enough to know what it’s like.

FUN!  LOL LOL  8)   Nice work.  (ONE of these days, I'll have to go out on a limb and upgrade a BIG site to the 2.0 branch!)
Happily using a heavily modified 1.1.16 version of SMF!

Haha this mod cracks me up. I can see the whining from the members who experience this.  :D " Halp, I can't see the forum." etc.

O:) <---- My face as I nicely explain I have no idea what they are talking about.

Too bad it's not for 1.1.10 though, I would totally use it.

How you can help SMF

"Before you allow people access to your forum, especially in an administrative position, you must be aware that that person can seriously damage your forum.
 Therefore, you should only allow people that you trust, implicitly, to have such access." -Douglas

1.1 support is really something I thought about on this before saying no to it (certainly for now). While the admin area stuff is all possible, and so are all the other changes, with little effort, the moderation center isn't. I'd have to find some other way to display the list of annoy-users in 1.1 and I have no idea where to put it.

Ah I see. Well I will keep my eye on this mod, in case that changes. Hehe.

I'm not saying it won't change, but I'm not saying it will either. I now develop everything on 2.0 first then backport to 1.1; it's just a ton easier that way with all the restructures (and improvements) in 2.0, IMO.

Thanks for the translation! Though someone suggested some new features to me in IRC earlier which I'll be including (yet more ways to annoy trouble users!) so if it's OK with you I'd prefer to run those out then if you could let me know the other translations once that's done, then I'll add it all in together.

Best mod for Administrator.

Will it be flexible to banned list of members also.

So we could avoid more spams to our large forums.

It's unfortunate that the mod center doesn't exist in 1.1.x for backporting purposes.
