  • Users listing and bogus accounts

    Is there a way that upon editing a user, the menu can go back to the user listing, instead of my having to keep re-selecting Show All Users? It'd be nice to have that option so there wouldn't be unnecessary mouse clicks.

    My problem is my forum gets garbage users...either its automated or something, but I get alot of russian IP addresses and user named things like

    Naxizwpmz etc.

    I've had to shut my forums off because it wont stop. They havent hacked it, but the posts are garbage porn ads etc. If its automated, I cant figure how they are getting past the image verification. Banning doesnt work because they just shift Ip's constantly.

    Any ideas??

    You don't have image verification turned on in your forums. Also the image verification in your version is weak and has been broken by some bot programs. I recommend upgrading to the latest version of vBulletin to gain better captcha functionality.

    Though not all will apply to your version, you can follow these steps here as well:
