It might be a good idea to optimize the mod so that it will only send one request per registration instead of three. You can do that like so:

http://www.stopforumspam.com/api?ip=91.186.18.61&email=g2fsehis5e@mail.ru

This will speed up the process and will also reduce the server load for stopforumspam.com.

This is done now - V0.1.1 attached to the first post.

I'm still yet to look into the DNS queries suggestion though...

Manually installed this on my 2.3.1 forum, seemed smooth, except for slight changes in one of the search lines.

So even less spam registrations now. I can't thank you enough for this mod, Derek!
  

Improving my forum, one mod at a time!


Now up and running again, with an accurate link.

You're welcome Batchman, I'm just glad it's of some use. No doubt there will be times when spammers who aren't in the database will still get through, but I'm hoping to add a feature at some point so that you can also report spam to them when they do.

Hi Derek,

hmmm, not work. Conflict with another mod? See the error message.

Maybe a conflict with yamms????

Hi pyragony,

It's because you haven't got one of the Modules installed. Try uploading the attached 'XML' folder to the yabb2/Modules directory. There's a chance it still might not work if it depends on other Modules too, but give that a go for now.

I just installed this mod.
great idea.

odd though, testing it out i entered a registration and got hit with the Known Spammer error.

I went to the stop forum spam site and searched for everything i had listed and there were 0 results

i picked a different name and email address and that one registered fine but i am perplexed as to why a random name i chose and a valid email address would bounce if not found in searching the stop forum spam site?

I just got this error, but the forum spammer mod has been working fine before this one:

Could not find YaBB.xml in ./ at ./Sources/Register.pl line 584

Hi Derek, the next one.

Hi again pyragony,

You need to get XML::SAX installed:

http://search.cpan.org/dist/XML-SAX/

But I don't think it's as easy as just uploading the files to the Modules folder - ask your host if they will install it for you...

Hi BloodyRue,

Someone else said this happened to them too - what was the username and email you were trying to register with?

I've no idea why that would happen. Open up Register.pl in a text editor - what do you have on line 584?

Patty Kache was the name, when I changed that to something else it registered me fine, it wasnt the ip or the email

this also happened for the register name: Toasty


584 line says this:


    $spam_user_check  = $xml->XMLin($get_reg_spam);

Strange. I can register fine with both of those usernames. Undecided

So, where did you see the error? From reading your post over at YaBB, I'm assuming that it was in the forum Error Log and it's only happened once?

Hmmm, I really don't know what could have caused it, sorry. If it's only happened one time I don't think it's anything to worry about though. I guess it could have been some sort of server hiccup or something - you'll have to keep an eye on it to see if it happens again...

I take it this mod won't work in 2.3? I've tried installing manually and get an 'Internal Sever Error'.
