I don't really get bots because I use Cloudflare, but I would like to take a look at the code of the plugin.

Do you run any anti-spam plugins and/or native vBulletin anti-spam stuff?

Just Cloudflare and reCAPTCHA, no anti-spam plugin from vBulletin.org.

Native vB human verification of any type? Is the reCaptcha native?

We ask the testers to turn off ALL anti-spam stuff for testing, in case you would like to try it. My experience with CF tells me you'll be surprised how many bots get through and try to register.

It's the one built into vBulletin, yes.
I probably don't get any bots because I have "Under attack mode" in Cloudflare turned on at all times, something that's mandatory for a gaming community due to DDoS attacks. This mode requires JavaScript which probably stops pretty much all non-human visitors.

I don't mind to give it a shot though by disabling reCAPTCHA.

It will give you a full report of anything it does catch. No need to mess with your CF settings but yeah, lose the reCaptcha at least.

So how does it deal with tapatalk in-app registration (if enabled)? I'm just curious because tapatalk in-app reg bypasses the vB screening stuff.

Not sure, as I don't use that, and it obviously has its own deal and bypasses vBulletin stuff.

Well, tapatalk defaults to in-app registration. Last I checked, leaving in-app reg enabled on the plugin would divert away from all forum registration security measures configured on vB (i.e., CAPTCHA, random questions, anti-spam plugin interventions, etc). The tapatalk in-app reg process only required that a user enter an email address and a password to complete registration. I'm unsure whether or not tapatalk has fixed the issue.

If you're at all interested concerning the above described behavior, here's a thread in which forum owners were trying to get tapatalk developers to address the issue or at least come up with a workaround for vB 3.x/4.x as applicable to various devices: https://support.tapatalk.com/threads...rations.20426/

Has no effect on it whatsoever. And couldn't possibly. Tapatalk is enabled on two of the testing forums already for this, no issues at all.
