sonnb submitted a new resource:

sonnb - Stop Spam Here - Stop Forum Spam API (version 1.0.0) - An additional addon that bring Stop Forum Spam API to "Stop Spam Here" addon

What is this?
- This addon contains Stop Forum Spam API that allow you to access to SFS API and would integrate with Stop Spam Here addon (http://xenforo.com/community/resources/sonnb-stop-spam-here.1086) to perform spammer checking.

Why we have to use this instead of directly integrate to Stop Spam Here?
- Stop Forum Spam's ToS does not allow their API to be included inside a paid script. Stop Spam Here is a paid script so it could not add SFS API to its source. This...

Hi there, thanks for those outstanding plugins! Glad I'd bought it! It already prevented us from a LOT of dirt in those few days :)

One small issue:
A few spammers still get through although their IP is definitely listed on stopforumspam.com.

Example-IP: 216.172.135.135 (name: testerus , email: teste@teste.de)
Found here: http://www.stopforumspam.com/search?q=216.172.135.135

Check is activated for username, ip and email and its really just a few - the log clearly shows that both (StopForumSpam & SpamBusted) were used for a lot of registration aborts.

Any idea why this is happening? Should the plugin prevent every ip listed in the database, despite how often it was reported? If yes (and that's what we would like that it does), it seems to have a small bug here.

Hello DerFlash,

Thanks for your information. I have answer for your concern as bellow:

- You are able to see from this url http://www.stopforumspam.com/ipcheck/216.172.135.135 that "No activity seen from this IP in approximately 12 weeks". This mean this IP is an inactive bot.
- Secondly, you could check this link: http://www.stopforumspam.com/api?email=teste@teste.de&username=testerus&ip=216.172.135.135&f=json This link is API parse for your given information. As you can see in the result, the confidence of this check is 21.09%, that means the connection from this IP with provided information probably not a bot. We (the API) only mark this IP as spam if confidence is above 70%.

Hope this is clear to you.

Best Regards.

Hi sonnb,

actually I've soem problem with the registration check.

As soon as I install the add-on http://xenforo.com/community/resources/bd-tag-me.386/ the registration check does no longer work.

What I could find so far on trying to debug this:
  • 'registration check not working' means, that the 'load_class' gets executed just fine BUT the 'actionRegister()' in Register.php does not get called
  • if I disable 'file_health_check' and 'init_dependencies' of the TagMe add-on, the check works again
  • if I enable both, but comment out everything within the connected functions, it still does not work (so it seems just to be the fact that I've enabled them, not their content - or is it the fact that xenforo then runs some other things?!)

Are you using this addon together with Stop Spam Here addon? I am using bd tag me and do not have above issue. What are version of bd tag me and Stop Spam Here and this addon you are using?

sonnb - Stop Spam Here 1.2.3
[bd] Tag Me 1.6.6
Could you send me list of your addon via Personal Conversation or email? Tag Me has no concern with Register.php so it is hard to say this was caused the problem. Maybe you are using some other addons that also checking user registration that conflict with our addon.
