Miserable Users.

vBulletin 3.7 Version

Support questions from members who have not marked this as installed will be considered low priority.

The ever popular "miserable users" hack for vb 3.7. Basically a way to really annoy anyone you don't want visiting your forum. This version is based on the vb 3.6 version. Credit to Zzed for the original idea.

When classed as miserable, a member suffers ;

1. Slow response (time delay) on every page (20 to 60 seconds default).
2. A chance they will get the "server busy" message (50% by default).
3. A chance that no search facilities will be available (75% by default).
4. A chance they will get redirected to another preset page (25% & homepage by default).
5. A chance they will simply get a blank page (25% by default).
6. Post flood limit increased by a defined factor (10 times by default).
7. If they get past all this okay, then they will be served up their proper page.

Note: All the above options are set in the vBulletin Options.

To install this hack simply download the xml file to your pc and then import it into vbulletin as a product - then create your 'miserable users' usergroup and set the value of this group, and your preferred other settings, in the hacks settings area (vBulletin Oprions > Miserable Users). To make a member suffer just edit their profile to add them to the miserable users group (it will work as either the primary group or as a secondary group).

Upgrade from 3.6
If you upgraded your forum with the 3.6 version installed then it will continue to work, no need to upgrade - otherwise install this in the normal manner.


3.7.001 - Initial vB 3.7 version.
3.7.002 : Installation Code Updated.
