Avatar Verification v1.5
By Akyhne

For SMF 1.1.x (No new features are added)
For SMF 2.0, SMF 2.1 Alpha 1

GD-lib 2.x

REQUIRED: A manual edit is REQUIRED for ALL themes (other than SMF Core Default) which have a custom Register.template.php
If you don't do perform the edit, nobody will be able to register using those themes.

o Adds a verification of 10 avatar images when people try to register
o Uses images from the forums avatar folders. You can control which folders to use*
o Adds bans to the ban list on failed attempts. Can be disabled in the admin center.
o Decide how long people should be banned by first hacking attempt
o Decide how long people should be banned by the following hacking attempt(s)
o Receive email on every bann attempt, only continousy ban attempts, or disable email
o If there's not enough avatars in the forum, a simple image with numbers are used

*) As standard, the standard avatar folders of SMF are used (For SMF 1 & 2.0.x Actors & Musicians, for SMF 2.1 Oxygen)

Simply install the package to install on the SMF Default Core Theme ONLY.

A Manual edit will be required for ALL themes (other than SMF Default Core Theme) which have a custom Register.template.php
If you don't perform the manual edit, nobody will be able to register using those themes.

Just uninstall the mod as usual from the package center.

Where to change settings for the mod
In SMF 1.1.x: Goto the admin center, choose registration -> Settings
In SMF 2.0 xx: Goto the admin center -> Security and Moderation -> Anti-spam

Additional Notes
GD lib is required for the mod to work.
Note that GD Lib cannot create thumbs from corrupted images. That you can view images via your browser, doesn't nessescarily mean they are not corrupted. Check your avatars! You best do that by trying out the mod several times to see if some avatars are not generated.
Servers that have Sleep() disabled, will give an error in the log. I have no solution, but to enable the sleep function! Ask your host.

Supported languages
English British
