As of 23 Nov 2017 this modification has been withdrawn.

The ever popular "Miserable Users" modification.

Basically a way to really annoy anyone you don't want visiting your forum. Credit to Zzed for the original idea.

When classed as miserable, a member suffers ;

1. Slow response (time delay) on every page (20 to 60 seconds default).
2. A chance they will get the "server busy" message (50% by default).
3. A chance they will get redirected to another preset page (25% & homepage by default).
4. A chance they will simply get a blank page (25% by default).

If they get past all this okay, then they will be served up their proper page.

Note: All the above are set in vBulletin Options > Miserable Users.

To Install ;

Download the xml file to your pc and import it into vbulletin as a product.
Ceate your 'Miserable Users' usergroup and set the value of this group, and your preferred other settings, in the modifications settings (vBulletin Options > Miserable Users).


To make a member suffer just edit their profile - add them to the Miserable Users group (it will work as either the primary group or as a secondary group). There is also the option to set ip addresses.

I have used this hack in the past before, but on the upgrade to 4.0.0 and this hack, I get this error message on the server redirect while under a miserable user's account:

Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at [path]/includes/class_bootstrap.php(93) : eval()'d code:23) in [path]/includes/functions.php on line 3736

This suggests that something you have installed is inteferring. Its fine for me on my test forum.

Most "Miserable" mod ever!

Long-time user, back before it was written as a "product". My mods love it! Thanks Paul!

If you need a user in time out because they tend to be troublemakers in a cycle but are otherwise popular and add to the forums....

I love this mod. I don't have much of a user for it because I rarely have a troublesome forum member, but it's really looks like a lot of fun!

Correct.

I removed the search and flood limit as they are fairly useless, the main 4 are more than adequate to do the job required.
