i will need this when i open my new site
http://www.stopforumspam.com/downloads/I want to say there used to be a way to download the SFS database to check it locally. Can't quite remember, but I think the idea was pulled for a bit because of the bandwidth. That way people could check the DB locally and not be in any legal trouble.
Lucas, go to stopforumspam.com and search your username (Lucas), your IP, and your Email. If it appears, that'd be why. Not sure if they'll take it out, but you could try.Looks interesting, but every forum I see with Stop Forum Spam ends up blocking me for no reason, I guess it's because I live in Costa Rica and my freaking ISP uses IP's from Guatemala. Otherwise, this would be great for me.
Yeah, none appear there, yet when I joined two other vB4 forums who have this system enabled, it wouldn't let me register.
From the mod over at vBulletin.org , there was a report list of the number of spam bots that tried to register but failed.Not at this second, no. I feel the stop of spam (if noticeable), at some point is enough.
I find the vB log useful when someone contacts me that they are not a spammer and have been blocked.Not at this second, no. I feel the stop of spam (if noticeable), at some point is enough.
Upload the folder within the upload/ folder to your library/ folder in your root directory.I have the zip now but not sure where to install all of it or more precisely where all the pieces of it go in my root. I can handle it from that point on but I want to be sure that Im putting the files or folders in the proper locations first.
