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: 945
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.

There's no easy way to undo it either. I can try to write something to undo the damage, but it's going to take me at least a day or two, I'm backlogged with work on my own site right now.

no problem i can wait, thanks for considering my request

I'm going to work on this a bit tomorrow, it won't be anything flashy, and it'll just be a file upload coded to work with your entered admin group(s) (no super or mod permissions for it), but it should get the job done (I hope).

It's complicated as hell, but it'll be in the next release as well.

Sorry, I've run into problems with my own site. I've not had time to write a fix for it, plus it's next to impossible to do thanks to the way the extension's programmed (thus all the warnings).

Just not in the cards right now, I apologize.

I think you could add one thing. After clicking Spam button we are moved to new page with question like this: "Do you really want to ban and delete all post & threads of user...." and below two buttons YES and NO. I think that with this would be no mistakes.

I was using this One Stop Spam ban Mod, which was good, it deleted all the posts, banned the user, banned the IP Address and it also was able to Delete the user...

That was a really good mod, but, it has been stopped because the mod creator died,

Can you also have this mod Delete the user? And is there a way of adding this mod into the Profile, so that moderators do not have to click and see the thread itself to use this mod, thank you

I dont want the Mods to have Options To Tick whether I get an Email and certainly, I do not want us to waste time Sending Emails to Spammers!! So, this should be in Admin CP too, so that these options do not appear for the mods

SO, I Want A button Inside the Profiles, So With One Click, all their Posts are Deleted and the User is Deleted and their IP is Banned.. ---

Otherwise, people have to look at the Spam posts to Delete them, I am Using Monkey Stop Keyword and URL Moderator, its quite nifty in that it puts any new posts under moderation, so most spam is caught like that. Then all we need to do is BAN/Delete User, ---

This works in 3.8.1 with no problems.

I would like to see the button removed from all PM's and also, the options should be in the admincp and not for the mods to decide.

Thanks for a great hack!

Anyone know why my Supermods can't see the spam button? I have the setting correct but both my regular mods and supermods cannot see the button. I've done everything I can think of and it's not working for them.

I do know the settings are correct...but they still can't see it.

Any ideas?

Thanks

This will fix that:

http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...0&postcount=38

At first glance, I thought it might have just been to make the boxes unticked by default. But, I tried it and it does in fact make them unticked, grayed out and unable to be ticked. So, it completely removes the option for mods to have the emails sent.

I'm only just now trying this mod locally and deciding what to use for the live board. I'm torn between this and the 1-Touch Ban and Clean or whatever it's called. I like some aspects of both so far.

RaidenDAWG2, I'm sorry if this was answered and I missed it, but are there any plans to add a feature to delete all the spammers outgoing PMs (even in the distant future :P) ? Thanks either way

Nice work, a 2 minute mod to get it rolling. My mods and admin love the option and are waiting for a spammer to test it out.

I assume that if it used when it should not have been, there is a way to restore the user? Does it write to .htacess or ACP or both?

Thanks for your effort!
