Moderate New Registrations Based On IP Geographical Origin
Mod Version: 1.00, by Jafo232 (Coder) Jafo232 is offline
Developer Last Online: Nov 2018 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.0.0 Rating: (16 votes - 4.81 average) Installs: 211
Released: 27 Dec 2009 Last Update: Never Downloads: 694
Not Supported Uses Plugins Additional Files  

This mod will put any new registration into moderation so you can either approve or deny based on the physical location of the IP address. If the IP is located in a country that you white list, the registration will go through as normal.

This may be different for everyone else, but on my forums, I have yet to have a Russian IP sign up for anything other than posting SPAM. This plugin has moderated them all!

I hope to have time to eventually expand this to do other things. This also works on 3.8.x.

You MUST download the zone files from this site:

http://www.ipdeny.com/ipblocks/

The free license does not allow me to include them with the product, plus it is better to download the latest files anyway.

No real screenshots to show here, sorry.

Changelog:

12/20/2008
  • Coded the routine in, instead of using external whois program.
  • Now compatible with Windows
  • (39 download of 1.0)
2/11/2009
  • 77 downloads at this point
  • Rewrote application to use zone files rather than relying on Arin
12/27/2009
  • Verified it works for 4.0
To upgrade, READ THE README, and re-install product (select overwrite).

Uploaded the all the zone files into plugins/zones and it still says I need to download the zone files.
Are you sure it isn't working? I think it always says you need to install the zone files, but says you will see an error below if they aren't.

Talking

I love this mod and have recommended it to other vBB forum admins I know!

Strangely, they ALSO love this mod!

One thing I would like to see though...

I'd like it to auto accept IP's on the whitelist [which it presently does], REFUSE IP's on the black list and moderate everything else...

This would allow me to crack the whatsits with Russia and the Ukraine, but still moderate everything else.

But again - love the mod - tis excellent

Hi, I'm currently running 4.0.7

I have the plugins/zones folder (with all .zone files added) set in my vbulletin root folder. I get the error message saying I didn't upload the zone files. I have read the readme and followed the directions to a T. Does this version not work on 4.0.7?

Tested this on 4.0.8 and my test registration was moderated despite me being on a major USA based ISP... and US was white listed.

Same at 4.1.7. Test registration from different IPs were all moderated despite being on IPs in whitelisted zones.

That's because this doesn't work with 4.x.

Really?

I have been running this since vB4 was released and haven't noticed any issues, even on 4.1.7 PL2 I'm running now.

I have already cleaned the queue today, but a very quick flick through the logs and the usernames all look to be what I expect. I'll keep an eye on it, but it all looks good for me.

I have just updated the zones list today so will see if that makes any difference. It's a great mod, something I couldn't do without anymore!

I guess this mod is non-functional in 4.1.10. Too bad.

Was it working for you before? I'm yet to update from 4.1.9 (where it's still working perfectly), although should get a chance in the next few days and hoping it keeps working :S

So do you have to moderate each new member or if they are on the white list it does it automatically?

Got it up on 4.1.10 and I think it's working. No real way to test it though.
Nominated!

Is this mod going to be upgraded to work on 4.1.**? I hope so .....

The daily grind

Every day I have to delete delete delete and all from the same regions!
I ban IP's but still have trouble!
Even gone to the extent of moderating ALL new users .... frustrating for me and genuine users!

Sound familiar?

This mod is excellent. I have it running on 4.1.7 fine. I used to upgrade my vb4 everytime a new version was released but no more. Wait some time in between the versions.

I also ask questions only my industry will know at registration time. This filters 99% of all BS users and spam. It keeps your forum clean and level of content high. The bots figure my questions out eventually (about a week) and then I change my question/answer.
