New Thread on User Banning by BOP5
Mod Version: 1.3, by BirdOPrey5 (IB Staff) BirdOPrey5 is offline
Developer Last Online: Jun 2019 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 3.8.x Rating: (7 votes - 4.71 average) Installs: 55
Released: 13 Jan 2011 Last Update: 17 Oct 2011 Downloads: 320
Not Supported Uses Plugins Re-usable Code Translations  

The purpose of this mod is to create a new thread in a forum you specify whenever any user is banned.

NEW In Version 1.3 - More REPLACEMNTS available in post body. {USERNAMEL} and {BANNEDBYL} are now links to the profiles of the user who was banned and the user who banned them, respectfully. In addition {USERID} and {BANNEDBYID} have been added in case you have any use for them.

Also as of version 1.3 this version no longer works on VB 4.x. Please see the VB 4.x thread for a different version.

NEW In Version 1.2 - Set a minimum post count for a user before a "new thread" is created on their banning- this way you don't bother making threads for spammers with just a handful of posts.

The title and message posted is easily customized, as is the username of the thread starter.

This has been tested on vBulletin 3.8.6 and it should work on all versions of 3.8.x. It may work on earlier versions too. See this thread for a VB4 version: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=257041

Read the info txt file in the .zip for full instructions.

See the screenshots for more details.

Please "Mark as Installed" if you use this.

Default banned usergroup ID 8 but several forums have more similar banned usergroups like this (Read only, Full ban, and other specific groups) or different ID for default banned usergroup. It requires one extra option which you must specify the ID of banned usergroups.

Not sure if this is of interest to anybody, but this is how I've configured ours:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Any ideas on how to list/add details for infraction history without going into the Admin panel or the profile infractions tab? I'm going to play with it today, and see if I can figure it out.

BTW - here are the details I would like to add. I do not mind sharing this screenshot. Everyone should be on the lookout for anyone coming from the bugmenot domain. Shared logins = bad.

Infraction info is stored separately then the banning and user info, there is no easy way to pull that info with this mod.

Just a heads up - we discovered a bug where banning multiple members using vBulletin's delete posts as Spam feature triggers multiple threads, but does so under a single username. For example in the following picture banning all 4 members at once would have created 4 duplicate threads, but the same name would have been shown for each member being banned, vs. each of the member names -- as demonstrated in the second image:





Note the username shown in the second pic is not shown in the first pic. This is due to the fact that I had to snap two different screenshots to illustrate the point.

On a board of our size, it's sometimes necessary to use the delete as spam because it can ban multiple members at once, and because of the added functionality it offers of deleting all posts and threads from the affected members.

------------------

On an unrelated note -- cookie stuffing is back. Be on the lookout for broken images in a post. When a newer member has a small number of posts, you might find that there is weird link wrapped in [img] tags. The browser tries to resolve the link and in the process downloads a file from the site (usually a gif or php) stuffed with cookies containing affiliate ID's. The nasty part is that these cookies are downloaded onto the members computer, and unless they are deleted -- every purchase made on the site with the affiliate ID in the cookie is credited toward the person who planted it there. Most are Amazon and Ebay links. Very shady and morally wrong. That's more of a tip, but I thought I'd mention it since I was on the topic of Spam. Also, note that Firefox does not display broken images, which makes it kind of tricky to spot them. Most of the time you can edit the gif file in a text editor for further proof.

Hi Joe, i've changed the vb phrase "Never" for my forums, is it possible to replace it in your mod?, what i mean is if the ban lift time is "never" then display a custom message or actually "Never"

Nice mod.
Would it be possible to implement thread prefix into this somehow?

How do I make this work only for permanent bans? Also is there any easy way to include the registration date and postcount of the banned member in the thread title and/or body?

I can confirm this bug. When banning multiple members through the delete posts as spam function (be it in forumdisplay.php or showthread.php) the number of ban threads is correct but they are all duplicated. Could you please fix this?

Please don't report posts asking for bug fixes, that isn't what the report post system is there for.

I am sorry but I have no plans on fixing this issue. I've used the mod for years without running into the bug so it just isn't a pressing issue.
