Alright, I finally fixed it! Did some backtracking and found a missing insertion in the file includes/usercp_register

So that being said, I got 1.0.3 of this mod to work fine with the latest 2.0.22 of PhpBB.

Hmm, I decided to run the db_update.php file again. Some new things were inserted, though I got a few errors for some duplications.

However the forum still seems to accept new registers no matter what they answere in the questions. Still puzzled.

Hey guys, I'm back again. Noticed phpbb went through a new version release, 2.0.22. I decided to ugprade to this. Then noticed that the spam bots were getting through again. I figured that may happen. I then spent my 20 minutes last night re-editing the files as the mod indicates, and doing everythi...

So... I went through hours of work trying to sort out out all the spam bots and prevent them from registering.. and just a simple thing like this would have worked?

I just checked the forum this morning. No spam got through, though it's possible one of the moderators beat me to the cleanup phase. Good thing you can customize the questions in this puppy, otherwise it would be as useless as the VC within a week. So far I'm happy. The time spent trying to install ...

Ok, well I did get at least one spam registration so far. But it is possible it was a human at the other end. Anyhow, the spam has definitely been cut down, which is a good thing. I'm still curious for the results during the rest of this week.

Ok, I set up my forum to ask users a logical question during registration. This seems to have fooled most the spam bots. I did get one which got through, but it could have been a human at the other end. At least more than 90% of the pedophile porn has been cut down. I was getting ready to shut down ...

Alright! Took me like an hour to get my templates set up. But it looks like we are good to go for now! During the process I got some more spam posted, but I'll be curious to see if anything slips by now that this mod is fully operational. I'm going to keep my fingers crossed, and we'll see by mornin...

Ok pissed off....

Deleted 30 messages this moring for rape/incest/beastiality/gay/kiddie porn.

Took a 40 minute break, and poof, already 10 more. Not to mention the typical lame Britany spears porn as well.

I'm going to try the anti-bot question mod. The only thing vc does is confuse human users.

I never bothered trying to peek into my client's private mails. But I guess people being people, there is always those who HAVE to know... If I am on a forum where an admin is like that, id' rather just post something private in public, and the rest in private. That way he'll never pay attention to ...

Speaking of spam, I just deleted about 20 posts this morning. Then i also noticed my e=mail server isn't filting things out just right.

Umm... I thought most admins came to the realization that word censor lists don't really work. They actualy tend to cause more problems than they fix. Why do you actually need one?

Do you plan to also stop people from insterting dots or typos for certain CENSORED words too?
