Re: [MOD] Very Simple Anti Bot Registration (VSABR)

I prepared a "addon"-version of VSAB ...

https://github.com/GWRon/fluxbb_addon_verysimpleantibot

Feel free to reuse it to your likes (zlib/libpng). It uses the same approach like your module but tries to avoid loading ressources as much as possible.
Different to yours it does not request a "captcha" when using the preview-button of a post form.

EDIT: fixed some code as Quy pointed out an error (missed some things when changing to fluxbb-coding style)

bye
Ron

Re: [MOD] Very Simple Anti Bot Registration (VSABR)

Sorry for "bumping".

Currently I extend the VSAB-addon with the hints and suggestion of Quy, feel free to provide patches and suggestions - albeit I myself am not trying to add feature after feature (as it already does what it should in my board ... keeps the bot users out).

The last days the addon got this added compared to vsabr:
- enable/disable addon at all (registration + postings)
- enable/disable "captcha" for postings depending on user type (guest, member)
- use a specific member post count at which the member has no longer to validate their postings (requires "posting captcha" to be set to "for all users")
- use an enhanced hashkey for the questions to avoid bots reusing old question hashes and known answers (which is possible with VSABR) -> currently a hashkey is valid for a maximum of 2 hours

bye
Ron

Re: [MOD] Very Simple Anti Bot Registration (VSABR)

Lately I have been getting bots that sign up (I get an admin notification email), but since they can't validate their email, they don't show up in the user list. However, my user table has gotten quite large. This is a definite problem, sadly. sad

Re: [MOD] Very Simple Anti Bot Registration (VSABR)

there is a cleanup-module somewhere in the module-registry. Use that to prune all invalidated accounts registered X weeks before now.
