This mod will automatically generate a report thread when a new user posts a reply to a thread that has been inactive for a time (necro-posting) and/or has included certain words in the content of their post (and signature if you want). This includes the case where the new user edits an existing post they have made to add such words.

In the included screenshots, you can see the options provided via the AdminCP to configure the product to suit your needs, the default message shown to new users upon editing a post to add flagged words, an example of a thread as listed in the designated report forum, and the body of the generated report.

I want to give a profound word of thanks to BirdOfPrey5 because it was the study of his XML files and the fact that he allows his code to be reused that allowed me to be able to package my products.

Updated version 1.1:
  • User is allowed to chose excluded usergroup(s) from list of available groups
  • User is allowed to chose destination forum for generated reports from list of available forums
  • User is allowed to opt out of generating reports (moderate posts only)
  • Bug fixed where user editing existing post to include flagged words was shown moderation queue message even when posts were not moderated

Updated version 1.2
  • Excluded usergroup selection is 2 columns to save space
  • Added the option to exclude users by username
  • New users may now be blocked from creating/editing signatures containing flagged words
  • Customize the error message shown to such users
  • Destination forum for generated reports is also a 2 column format
  • if no destination forum is selected when saving the settings the first time, the forum used for user-reported posts is auto-selected
  • Bug fixed with regards to the first post of a thread being put into the moderation queue and user post counts

Updated version 1.2a
  • Resolved conflict with "Automatic Tagger From Message Content and Title"

Updated version 1.2.1
  • Include new user's IP address in report post, with link to resolve IP
  • Report which flagged word(s) were found in post content and/or signature

Updated version 2.0
  • Added the option whether to exclude users by postcount
  • Allow standard wildcards in flagged word definitions
  • Allow product to either act globally or in select forums

Updated version 2.1
  • Added the option whether to include posts/signature in report whether flagged or not.

Updated version 2.2
  • Allowed domains: sites to which links are allowed.
  • Quoted content (as long as it has not been altered) is exempt from being checked for flagged words.
  • When a new user's post goes into moderation, they are shown a static error message, rather than vBulletin's fleeting message new users often fail to be able to read/understand.

Updated version 2.2a
  • Found and fixed a syntactical error preventing selected forums setting from working correctly.

Updated version 2.3
  • Will now auto-add the unresolved report thread prefix when creating the report if "Report Thread Prefix Management" is installed and active.

Updated version 2.3.5
  • Data-type for destination forum fixed to positive integer.

Updated version 2.4
  • Fixed broken link to post when the reported post is the first in a thread.

Updated version 2.5
  • Replaced usergroup and forum selection settings with select elements.
  • Added the option to decide whether to display the product's moderation queue message or to use vBulletin's default message and redirect.
  • If your automated reports go to the same forum as user reported posts, then any subsequent user reports will be appended to the thread generated by this product.

Installation:

Download and extract the attached zip file, then upload the contents of the "upload" folder to your forum's root directory.

This add-on isn't meant to block the usage of words, only report on their usage and then place the post into the moderation queue.

There already is the option to choose which forums on which this product is active. Adding the post title to the check isn't a bad idea though, so look for that most likely in the next update.

If you are looking to block words from being posted in the first place, I would point you to this product which works very well:

Is it possible to disable the error message from displaying to the poster of said moderated message? Getting an error message annoys members and they try to get around it by posting the same/similiar message again. Is it possible to have it so that both the staff and the original poster of the message sees his/her post, thus making it so that the poster doesn't think anything is wrong and sees no reason to make a duplicate/similar post? I'm not asking to add this option to the modification, I'm happy to be able to do this on my own if you let me know what I'll have to modify.

Well, my intent with the message to the user is to explain that their post/thread has been added to the moderation queue and will be dealt with ASAP, thereby preventing them from thinking their post just disappeared.

Now, in the product's settings you can choose to set "Moderate Posts?" to "No" and then the user will see his post has been posted like normal, but a report is generated that your staff will see and can then take action.

Ah ok. I was hoping that the post still get moderated and that no one on the forum but the staff and the poster his/herself would see it until the staff took care of the post. I guess that's not possible.

Well, that would most likely be possible, and so I will certainly look into the possibility of making this an option.

On the issue of users being able to view their own moderated posts, I would direct you to the following thread:

Users can see own moderated threads prior to approval

I have installed this nice plugin. But I have some questions:
We are using this for being able to get infos when an user write special keywords in his post. Then 2-3 admins should be notified. Is it possible in any way, that the admins get a PM or eMail when a post is reported?

I will look into adding this as a feature for a future release.

Ok, thank you very much! And let me ask another question: Where will a post be reported?

I have enabled your add-on and have put in one keyword. But the admin gets no report anywhere - what can I do?

The report will be posted to the forum you have set in "Destination Forum For Reports." A report will only be generated when a non-exluded user has fewer posts than the threshold you set and includes one of the "Flagged Words" in their post and/or signature or if they attempt to necro-post, where you define the threshold in days for that.

The posting with the "flagged word" in it gets in the status that has to be moderated.
But there is no report that the user that id is set under "Userid For OP Of Report Threads" will see.
