Spammers Not Welcome Message in Russian
Mod Version: 1.1, by segwayon (Member) segwayon is offline
Developer Last Online: Feb 2013 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 3.7.3 Rating: (0 vote - 0 average) Installs: 5
Released: 21 Oct 2008 Last Update: 22 Oct 2008 Downloads: 20
Not Supported Template Edits Additional Files  

What is it?
-----------
It displays a message image in Russian on the register.php page stating that "Spammers are not welcome here." I only created this modification after seeing a ton of spammers coming from the Russian Federation, and we have in place a lot of tools to stop these spammers from trying to join. The hope is that this message will prevent a lot of wasted time and resources for all involved. Enjoy!

Release history:
----------------
v1.0: 21 October 2008 - Initial release

V1.1: 22 October 2008 - Improved on the translation.
If you installed the v1.0, then please download the zip file again
and replace the original "no_spammers.png" on your server with the latest one.
In other words, to upgrade just follow step 1.


************
* STEP ONE *
************


Upload "no_spammers.png" to <forumroot>/images/misc


******************************
* STEP TWO (register_rules): *
******************************

Sure, Fungsten. I went into Google Translation to acquire it.

"Спамеры не приветствуем здесь." translates as "Spammers are not welcome here."

http://translate.google.com/translat...elcome%20here.

And then I re-translated the Cyrillic Russian back into English as a check.

I guess they hate everything we come up width to make life for them as hard as possible but i cannot see how something like this would be of any help as most spammers are automated robots they won't read or even see the message.Some spamgangs do use humans to pass any verification checks.There bot can "beep" when it needs assistance from a human

Off Topic of the mod, but On topic of these spammers:

Just wanted to let everyone know I have been using these blocklists and have cut almost all visits off from unwanted countries. Just stumbled onto the site. Hope you use it. You may want to sign up for the auto email changes to the lists.

I am in NO WAY affiliated with the site.

"Спамеры не приветствуем здесь." - it`s wrong translation

"Спамеры здесь не приветствуются" - will be correctly

On paper this seems like a good enough idea, however....

It not like SpammerX is going to come to your site, see the message and suddenly get an attack of morals and leave.

There is a Chinese-Korean Blocklist, Exploited Servers Blocklist, and Nigerian Blocklist in addition to the Russian at that site.
