vB Version: 2.2.x Rating: (0 vote - 0 average) Installs: 9
Released: 22 Feb 2002 Last Update: Never Downloads: 0
Not Supported Is in Beta Stage  

UPDATED!!! AGAIN!

This is a more effective solution than the standard "ban", and is meant to be used for very annoying troublemakers that keeps re-registering once banned. Anyway - once a user is placed under the "Hellban", the following happens:

1. Every 3:d time the user tries to load a page, he is greeted with a fake "500 Internal Server Error" message.

2. Nobody but moderators and the user himself can see his posts. He is, essentially, under a site-wide ignore.

This may not be a 100% fail-safe solution, but a lot of the morons will hopefully get tired and go away.

Here is how it's done:

1. Run the following query on your database:

INSERT INTO usergroup VALUES("666","Hellban","","0","1","1","1","1","0","1","0","0","0","1","1","1","1 ","0","0","1","1","1","0","0","1","0","0","0","0","0","0","0","0","1");
ALTER TABLE post ADD hellban INT UNSIGNED;
ALTER TABLE thread ADD hellban INT UNSIGNED;

2. Add this at the bottom of you global.php

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

3. Find this in newreply.php:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

REPLACE it with this:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

4. find this in newthread.php


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

in that file, also find this:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

After that, find this:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

and replace with this:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

I showthread.php, find this:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Replace with this:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

in forumdisplay.php, find this:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Replace that with this:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Now, whenever you want to get rid of a user, simply set him or her to usergroup Hellban.

I loved the 505 error bit, so I only took that bit from this hack, and removed the random number generator so that it happens everytime, and the person is effectively locked out of the board for good. (unless they clear their cookies - but most probably won't even know whats going on).

Is this thing going to make it to a final? Sounds like an interesting hack.

Search for the miserable users modification which is available for version 3.0.x and 3.5.x which does the same thing.
