Is Bot: Registration Time Check
Mod Version: 1.0.0, by calorie (Coder) calorie is offline
Developer Last Online: Jun 2013 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 3.6.8 Rating: (67 votes - 4.88 average) Installs: 733
Released: 30 Dec 2006 Last Update: Never Downloads: 3479
Not Supported Uses Plugins Template Edits  

This mod calculates the time it takes to go between these two pages:
  • /forum/register.php?do=register
  • /forum/register.php?do=addmember
The point is to try and prevent bots from registering at your forum when the time between the two pages is humanly impossible, assuming that humans actually take the time to complete the registration page.

Should a user be blocked from registering at your forum, an email will be sent to your vB webmasteremail address and the user will see the vB noregister phrase message, so no screenshot is necessary.

Here's an idea... Why not grey out the submit button and have it display a timer so that the user cant hit submit till the 15 seconds are up therefore they will never be caught. Whereas the bot will just be programed to push the submit code and never know of the timer. Just a thought.

If you've added the product via the Add/Import Product interface, and modified the "register" template as instructed, then the product is "on" and working. You can disable it without uninstalling it, or you can remove it altogether through the same Manage Products in the Admin CP.

FWIW, I installed this hack on two different vB installs, and it blocked several (and apparently all) spam bot registrations. But, on one, as a test, I enabled reCAPTCHA, and disabled Is Bot, and haven't had a spam bot successfully register since.

Disable the plugin - the option to do this isn't there.

Bots are getting tougher and tougher. Remember: Every bot is programmed by a guy who wants to show, how smart he is. This way you will lead him to the solution...

It makes nothing, if one of 1000 real persons has a register problem and needs to contact the admin.
