Might be fun dealing with the time differences, but it's not like you're getting autospammed anyway, correct?

I speculate that this mod is redirecting the bots. Thereby stopping them. But, of course I don't know that. But you're not getting spammed and your spaminator log no longer shows any new entries past the 95?

I think it's going to be awhile before we get an answer, his last post was on September 19th.

I have a suspicion that the pop-up may be inadvertently stopping the bots because they might not be making a User Group selection.

I am unable to replicate this. I tested on my test site, and after I filled in the fields it was indeed logged.

Only thing I can surmise is that the pop-up is blocking automated form submission.

I seem to have a problem since activating this. I have email confirmation turned on and signups appear to be stuck on the 'awating email confirmation' status. I thought it was coincidence but it's happened to the last around 10 signups which can't be coincidence. I've disabled it for the time being.

The forum is only three days old so I don't really have a spam problem but it's already blocked several dodgy signups so that is good.

I am on 2.1 with the Core template from ThemeHouse.

Thanks

Well I don't know now. I posted that then went back to my forum, disabled the addon then checked the user logs and saw that a user had successfully signed up three minutes earlier.

Maybe the string of awaiting email confirmation signups was just coincidence. I just don't know

The Spaminator is just a template edit of the registration form. Exactly like all of the native xf anti-spam registration features like the captcha and timer, are. Exactly like any custom fields you might use. As such they have nothing to do with email confirmation after registration is completed.

Getting the emails confirmed by the user, that's always a crap shoot. First, they have to put in their correct email address with no typos or mistakes. Second, they have to have access to the email account they entered. Third, they have to know to look in their junk folder. Fourth, they have to check their email, find yours, open it and click the link in it. It's not an automatic thing, and certainly is far too inconsistent of a thing by its very nature, to be useful as a troubleshooting sign or even a symptom.

One thing you might do is register a test account on your forum and see if you get the confirmation email. Might even do several.
