The problem is that Tor detection is built off of Tor's exitlist. Which is their own IP address blocking script. Somehow their script is throwing false positives, and I am not understanding why, so this requires me to build the script to block the ip's individually. The problem with this is that I would have to update the ip definitions weekly or possibly daily. Which I don't mind doing, but I am unsure on vBulletins policy with automatic file updates. This may have to be something I do in the premium version. However I am ok with updating the definitions on my website server, but that means extra work for everyone else on uploading a new file every week to their servers. I even did a check for one of the IPs and found no results:

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

So yes it can be done, but I need to check with vBulletin staff to see if I could do automatic file updates from my server.

No I am not, I am just balancing two jobs and working for a third party on another project, and have not any time to work on anything the last couple months, and probably will still not have time for another 2-3 months when this project is completed.

But I urgently need this option:
Not Allowing users to post Tor
I thought that was already available.
When you think have it?

Thank You
This is something that will be added to the next version.


EDIT: Approval from staff was given, when I have some spare time, I will upgrade detection.


Update: I have pushed out 1.9.3 to everyone. There was an issue that referred all proxies as tor detections. Now you can appropriately track an incorrect detection. If you are still receiving false positives from Tor side, then please let me know and I will code everything based on IP instead of Tor's API for blocking.

Donīt wanna jump a train but if this eMail has gone out to us Pro-customers, I have no mail, too. Doesnīt matter, cause since the mod isnīt really usable without a false detection quote of 30% I donīt use it anymore.

Whitelisting is nice - but heck, I canīt go through 8.000 dynamic IPīs each day and add them one by one to the list. Esp. nearly every mobile carrier uses proxies, where the half is beeing detected false as TOR-users. As I had the mod activated my mailbox turned into pandoras box with complaints over complaints.

Unless there is no data-service which handles & checks (!) the ipīs and ip-ranges for proxies, I wouldnīt recommend to use this on boards with >500 members.
