I redirected it to my forums, but with a slight spelling mistake, and they get the dreaded 404 error page

After a while they must give up

Great idea.
I might have the redirect stay on the site and go to a page saying "under Construction" or something irritating like that.

Along those lines, would it be possible to redirect to the forums offline page? Is that even viewable when the forums are online?

So, here is one issue that I have noticed...

I have tried using this for unregisted/not logged in and forwarding it to a pseudo welcome page within vbadvanced...but once it redirects them, it goes into an endless redirect loop

That is exactly what it will do, cookies are set and you will not be able to login. Not exactly an issue as it falls into the nature of how vbulletin works. you are always unregistered/ not logged in until you login. If this happens to you, you will still be able to login to the admincp directly with a url and change or remove the code.

heres a beter solution, not to drive anyone awa. but if you have access to your sites cpanel (which you should) go there and hopefully you have the ability to create custom errors. Well go into and edit the 403 error one, this is what shows when someone is blocked fro ma website. and place this in there. if you do this, if you ban the persons IP from your website rather than the forums they will be redirected no matter what unless they get smart and use a proxy.

do you really think a banned user doesn't immediately clean their cookies? at best these tactics only work one time, and only act to turn a banned user into a determined banned user.

anything less than an ip ban is just giving the admins a false sense of security.
