Favorite vBulletin Mods to fight SPAM

Postby hostingforum » Tue Jul 17, 2012 9:44 am

Hi there, what are Your favorite vbulletin mods which helps prevent overspamming of the forum?

This is what i do on my vbulletin forum:
- Im using custom antispam questions on member signup
- Im using "VSa - Advanced Permissions Based on Post Count". This is good mod and i like i can apply posting/viewing restrictions based on post count. Restrictions examples: Reading forums, Posting replies, Posting New threads, Sending PMs and more. But spammers go around it that they post spam messages without links and then add them additionally after they reach required post count.


This plugin: "Mod Limit Number of Posts&Threads in Forums Within a Time Frame" can be used to limit number of new posts or threads added per day to one forum folder. But im not using it bacause i think spammers can distribute new threads and posts to all my subforums. If the mod has global settings like maximum 1 thread daily per whole forum for the first 5 days it can be good.
