Spam Decimator
Mod Version: 1.5.0, by RaidenDAWG2 (Member) RaidenDAWG2 is offline

This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 3.7.1 Rating: (15 votes - 4.73 average) Installs: 204
Released: 22 Jun 2008 Last Update: 22 Jun 2008 Downloads: 944
Not Supported Uses Plugins Auto-Template Additional Files Re-usable Code Translations  

This is an updated version of my previous extension, Spam Decimator 1.0.x. This is for vB versions 3.7.0 and up. It may work with 3.6.8PL2 and up, but I cannot confirm this.

Features Include:

-Ban a spammer with two clicks.

-Delete all threads by a user (soft or permanent, ACP configurable)

-Delete all posts by a user (again, soft or permanent, choice is yours)

-NEW! Delete any spam comments and log them as well.

-Permit or deny mod/super mod access through ACP

-Email the spammer saying pretty much haha, caught you sucker (default email can be configured using ACP)

-Email the webmaster informing him/her of the attack

-Option to move all soft deleted threads to a specified forum (for safe keeping in case IP addresses or whatnot are later needed for legal proceedings or whatever)

Most everything here works with vB native functions (i.e. delete_thread, etc.), so forum, thread, and post counters are automatically updated.

Install

Installing is quite simple. Simply upload the included files (three of them, decimator.php, includes/functions_decimator.php, and images/misc/spambutton.gif) preserving hierarchy and import the product file, and voila! you're done and ready to take on any spammer who comes your way.

***NOTE: if template hooks do not work for you, see the install file included in the package for instructions.

Other Stuff

**UPDATED!!!

Tested and functioning with vBulletin 3.7.1. I make no guarantees about compatibility with other versions.

Spam Decimator 2.0.0 is slated for a late June 2008 release, with a features list to follow.

That's basically it. Enjoy, and as always, click install

Changes:
1.0.1 - Fixed problems with xml product file, validated for use with vB 3.5 Gold release.

1.0.2 - Fixed mod/super mod access bug as well as fixed templates for non-vB default styles.

1.0.3 - Fixed all known remaining bugs, rewrote email system to properly parse emails using native vB functions.

1.0.4 - Attempted to fix bug I can't find...updated main template.

1.0.5 - Fixed no mod access bug.

1.5.0 - Added post count limit to be decimatable, added plugin to control display of Decimator button. Fixed minor issues, rewrote several functions for improved performance.

1.5.1 - Fixed bugs, added vBulletin blog comment compatibility.

What happens if the spammer doesn't post? I have gotten bombarded with spam registrations over the past 3 days. I ban them before they have a chance to post. But I have to do all of this through ACP manually.

Is there any way to use spam decimator on the user before they post?

I'd look at using a different plugin if you want to automatically block them ..

Ok, would you have a suggestion? If it's a competitor, can you PM me, so as not to upset the dev for this one?

Thank you

That would be the one I use as well. This add-on was really designed to be a reactive thing to clean up spam after it happens, not prevent it.

Yes, this was designed to work with both 3.7.x and 3.8.x.

Folks, I apologize for the lack of progress on converting this to vB4. To make a long story short, I've taken a new job with long hours and I barely have the time to convert my own site over, let alone this mod. If any coder wants to take over the mod, please just PM to give me a heads up.
I can not find this setting.
Could you please help me where to change this?

Thanks.

vbseo developers have already modified the plugin for vb4 and they use it on their own forums. they cannot release it because the plugin is not in open source and they cannot release your work in their name. i wish you can give them the permission to release the modified version that works with vb4! thanks.

This works on vB4 because I see that vBSEO.com is using it on their forums....SO I think it might work on vb4

they have made changes to the extension to make it work on vb4. they cannot release it on their own because the extension is not open source. (i did ask them and they refused).
