Need A Partner For A Rating/Dating Site

    I don't want to host it because it would require me to upgrade my server and I don't make enough money to upgrade so I'm looking for a partner. One of the reasons I had this idea is because most rating and dating sites suck due to admins letting fakes creeps run wild. With a strong moderator team that wouldn't happen. It would also provide much-needed traffic back to my own site and my partner's site if they have one. I think this is a good since everyone's addicted Facebook and Twitter these days, but they never tire of rating/dating sites.

    I read that it integrates with vBulletin and I still have my vBulletin license. I could create a subdomain on my site and install both, integrate them and test it out.

    While Tufat has some interesting stuff, the support / updates are pretty much non-existent.

    Oh in that case, that sucks. I would like something that has support.

    A friend of mine has a domain that she never uses so I'm going to use her domain to experiment.

    I tried a dating site with XF, all I can say: the spammers from Nigeria and Ghana will come after you and spam it like crazy.
    It`s a 24/7 job to detect and delete spammers.....

    • StopForumSpam registration integration and submission
    • BotScout registration integration
    • FSpamList registration integration
    • No proxies

    Add Cloudflare.com and watch the spam issue be almost null

    I have used "StopForumSpam" and "FSpamList" as well, but it did not help a lot. I also used "XenUtiles" which is actually great!
    Still, it was just a nightmare dealing with fake users. The biggest help was to block certain "Countries" entirely, but this only works if you run a dedicated server.

    A question for XenForo:
    I have read somewhere a post from Mike or Kier that they will include "StopForumSpam" in some of the next XF-versions. What about XenUtiles?
    Is there a plan to also integrate "prevention of Proxies"? Or should I rather go with Borbole's Add-on?
