Re: pun_stop_bots

This is totally different extension fantasma.
You are confusing

Antispam System

    * Created by PunBB Development Team.
    * Version v1.3.4.
    * Adds CAPTCHA to registration, login and guest posting forms. Puts restrictions on adding user signatures and website links.

and

Stop spam from bots 0.2

The extension will ask some questions to prevent bot registration and posting.

Yes!
I installed and then disabled it. I can not annoy forum users with questions when they are posting. But now 2 weeks I am experiencing spam bots attack and captcha at registration do not prevent them...

I just wondering about this one (I thought modification is not finished):

Re: pun_stop_bots

Installed. Not have seen bugs (in forum).

Re: pun_stop_bots

I think I may have been testing it while testing something else that was giving warnings.
Let me know if you do hear anything from users about it though.
Thanks.

Re: pun_stop_bots

I've had this extension installed for a couple of hours and have just had a new user registration which I'm sure is a spambot. It's the usual vague name plus a number at the end. I've checked the account with the geo extension and can see the account is from Pakistan. My forum is for people in a small town in England

Re: pun_stop_bots

You could always
turn pun_approval on (just for registrations)
and install stopforumspam.com extension
and report IP, email and username to stopforumspam.com

Pakistan often will be human spammer... they'll answer the question without too much trouble...
maybe even feed the answer to someone running bots...

You can also hope someone creates this addtion for pun approval - so that any UK users would get though without manual approval:

Re: pun_stop_bots

Thanks. The last time I tried pun_approval it didn't have an option to disable approval for posts.

Thanks for your thoughts about the Pakistani account possibly being human.

I could ask a question that they can't find out such as.... what colour is the new supermarket in Royton Town centre. That could get awkward though, I'd need to think of a better question.

Re: pun_stop_bots

I've had 5 spam accounts today so far.
2 from Phillipines
1 from Pakistan (http://sonya55dslr.com/ in signature)
1 from Malaysia (http://www.calvetloans.us/)
1 from the UK

Re: pun_stop_bots

under
» Administration » Start » Forums » Edit forum
you can untick the post approval...

was always there, just not first place one looks...

regarding those accounts mentioned above
if you go to
» Administration » Users » Searches
and search for unverified users   (near bottom) - make sure you have none.... as they'll still be activating those accounts created before you installed stop bots...

Cheers for those tips. I wasn't aware of either of them
I've just deleted 170 unverified accounts smile

Re: pun_stop_bots

Working very well, should be added to the repository, or propose and option to enable/disable post questions.

Excellent job
