User Punishment by BOP5

"This is cruelest mod ever released since Miserable Users..."

This is the VB 4.x version.
VB 3.x version here.

Version 1.2

For too long we as admins have been limited on how we can take revenge on the users who drive us crazy. You know the ones- they don't break the rules per say but they certainly break the spirit of the rules.We don't want to ban them, Infractions don't really mean anything, So what could we do? We were stuck... until now.

User Punishment by BirdOPrey5 is Here!

This mod adds teeth to infraction points or can be used against specific users. Basically this mod will slow down a user's browsing experience by 1 or more seconds per request. A couple seconds here or there doesn't sound like a lot but think about it, if they make 30 clicks on your site per visit with a 2 second delay you've stolen a minute of their life. A minute they can never, ever get back.Like the torture machine from the movie "The Princess Bride" you have robbed from them the one thing no mortal man can ever recover. And like that torture machine you can turn it up as high as you like. [Insert evil grin smiley here.]

This mod has two ways of working. If you use the built in infractions system in vBulletin you can enable the mod to slow down a user's page load request based on the number of infraction points they have. By default 1 second for each point however you can multiply this with a setting- slow them down by 2, 3, or even 4 or more seconds per infraction point.

Now infractions actually mean something. As points expire their browsing speed will automatically return to normal.

The second option allows you to target specific users. In this mode you enter three pieces of data: The User ID, the Minimum Delay in Seconds, and the Maximum Delay in Seconds. The mod will then RANDOMLY slow down every request from the user for a time between the two numbers, inclusive. This mode is best used silently. Targeted users will simply think your forum or their Internet connection is being slow. They probably won't even say anything- but YOU will know. You will know every time they post or browse you are sucking their life away second by second.

Please Mark as Installed if you use this.
If you enjoy it please consider nominating it MOTM.

Please PM a link with a username/login of a user on punishment.

Are you using the infractions or directly targeting users? if direct please also post or PM me a copy of all the text in the settings box.

The issue with dmm2020 is that his 4.1.4 forum was not actually giving infraction points to the users. It was as if they were all warnings only regardless of whether he checked warning or not. He is submitting a bug report with vBulletin but this is not a problem with this mod. If anyone else gets this running on 4.1.4 it would be great if you could confirm you had it working (or not).

I have verified this does in fact work in vb 4.1.4 AND that the errors I was getting was configuration issues, not related to this mod. Good work and same recommendation I passed via PM. I recommend that delay either be in microseconds OR set up to allow decimal numbers. I would prefer the delay be suttle at first. Perhaps have the delay gradually fade away as the infraction ages without a repeat.

HI all,

I need to understand how to get the user ID. I have seen on a lot of forums that people say use the URL but the URL's on my forum simply displays the user name not the ID. I am also not a coder but would dearly love to use this mod.

I have candidates for this lined up.

Thanks in advance for helping me reap my evil revenge.

The easiest way is to "Search for Users" in your Admin CP, enter the username, and hit search.

On the very top of the left column it will say something like: User: Pam (id: 11)

Where "11" is the userid in this case.

This is the best mod ever. This mod allowed me to force some wannabe users to leave the forum without banning them. My forum has improved its quality amazingly.

I love this mod but I have a problem. The user with punishment can create another account an this account will work fine.
This is bad.

There are other mods that can detect "AE" (Alter-Ego) accounts. I suggest a policy of 1 account allowed per user.

Of course, there are easy ways around that one too. It's important you keep this in mind when disciplining members.

It's also important to keep in mind that it's JUST a forum in the end... Is it really worth much effort to "discipline" anyone?

If you have a low amount of users, it is. But If you have a large amount of users, it is unmanageable.
