    • It was adding a "1" to the server field, which was causing a redundant DNS lookup which should fail
  • Update Tor scoring to support non-numeric scoring (ie explicit reject/moderate/add-to-group/none)
  • For new installs, enable "Show Detection Methods" option by default.
    • This option will likely be removed in future releases and always enabled
  • On install, only enable getipintel if the "Contact email address" option is a valid email address
  • Better handle when getipintel rate-limit is being applied to avoid server IP bans
The getipintel feature has a 500 queries per day limit on the free plan.

When using shared hosting, this include XenForo Cloud, you may receive the following error:
[SignupAbuseBlocking] Server appears banned from, disabling getipintel option

If this happens, you can contact getipintel for information about a paid plan. Re-enabling the integration using the free plan may result in further (and longer lasting) IP bans from this service.
