The Encheferizer

Product
: Encheferizer 1.05
Author: Hugh Messenger (cheesegrits)
Support: On this thread only
Tested on: vBulletin 3.6.0 through 3.6.4
Average Install Time: 30 seconds

Summary

Do you have some troublesome users you want to punish but don't want to ban them just yet? Or maybe play a practical joke on some of your users? Or just have some good old fashioned Swedish Chef Fun? Then this is the mod for you.

What it Does

Displays all posts from a configurable list of UserID's and / or in ForumID's in "mock swedish". You don't have to have seen the Swedish Chef from the Muppet Show, but it sure would make a lot more sense if you have, Bork Bork Bork!

Individual encheferized users see their posts as usual:

Attachment 57831

Everyone else sees them like this:

Attachment 57830

Encheferized forums are "translated" in entirety - posts, titles, descriptions and all. Encheferized posts are NOT altered in the database, they are encheferized on the fly during template evaluation. So when you've had your fun, you just remove ID's from the list and things will go back to normal.

There are some options to control how victims see their own and other victims posts, see the ACP Encheferizer options for details (under the main vBulletin settings list). As of v1.03, the Encheferizer supports bbcode, smilies, IMG's and URL's.

Why?

Good question. Well, apart from just being funny as all get out, I wrote this for a friend who has some very persistant troublemakers on his forum. It turns out that Encheferization is a remarkably good tool for controlling Bad Boyz & Gurlz. It has a way of focusing peer pressure, creates much confusion amongst the Encheferized, and much hilarity for everyone else. Best of all, it renders the Encheferized unable to properly vent their spleen - after all, who can take threats of violence and foul language seriously when it is rendered in mock swedish?

And of course, having an enchererized forum on your board is just good old fashioned family fun!

Installation
  1. Copy bb_encheferizer.php to ./includes in your forum root.
  2. Import the product XML from your ACP Product Manager.
  3. Don't forget to hit the install button on this page. No, I'm not bucking for HOTM, I just want to be able to let you know about any updates!
Configuration
  1. Find the Encheferizer under the vBulletin Settings menu in your ACP.
  2. Enter a comma separated list of userids and/or forumids you want to encheferize.
  3. Light blue touch paper and stand well clear.
Upgrading
  1. Copy the new bb_encheferizer.php to your forum ./includes folder. If you are upgrading from 1.02 or earlier delete the old encheferizer.php.
  2. Re-import the product XML, remembering to set Overwrite to Yes.
Uninstallation
  1. Uninstall the product from the ACP Product Manager.
  2. Delete the ./includes/encheferizer.php and/or bb_encheferizer.php file(s).

for me it would be interesting if the user see all posts Encheferized. That would be hilarious because he have to logout to read it in correct language, so he cannot use his account.

lol, nice work, something for those members who never learn. however i think any member who had this occur to them would then start making lots of threads saying whats going on etc. and then that would add to the spam... maybe ill leave this for a special occasion like April fools like the above said... nice work tho.

I've already added two new options, that control whether encheferized users (or "victims") see their own posts as regular or encheferized. One option lets you define if individual victims see their own posts encheferized or not. The other defines whether all victims will see all other victims as encheferized or not (setting to Yes overrides the per-victim option).

I'm also adding a "forumids" option. I've had a couple of folk say that their users WANT to be encheferized, but only in specific forum(s).

I'll be uploading the new version some time tonight, probably.

Oh, but that's where the fun is! I wish I could point you at some of the threads where the victims are trying to work out what is going on, and everyone else is just having a fine old time. But I don't want to publish those links without explicit permission from the admins running those boards. All I can tell you is that some of the threads have reduced grown admins to tears of helpless laughter.

Yes, it does cause quite a commotion for a little while, but a) watching the victims curse and threaten and generally go ape sh*t in Swedish Chef speak is just too funny for words, and b) you can turn it off any time, and let the victims know that if they annoy you again, they'll get encheferized again, or booted.

Basically, the reason I wrote this was as a last resort before having to ban trouble makers. As I said in the release ntoes, encheferizing has a way of bringing peer pressure to bear on trouble makers. You don't even have to say a word - your members will eventuall work out what's going on. It worked on Usenet 15 years ago, and it seems to work on bulletin boards now.
