It's been a while, but we haven't stopped looking for ways to help websites expand their reach and operate more efficiently. Since member management continues to be a challenge, especially with the continued onslaught of spammers, the current focus for nukeSEO is on these areas.

Your feedback in the forums will help determine priorities.

Currently, we're looking to:

RNYA
- Replace the grid, search and maintenance functions with the DataTables class used in nukeSPAM
- Add functions to delete users without notification and add domain / subdomain to the blocked mail domains list
- Share blocked mail domains list across sites
- Add tools for removing members who never logged in, identifying members from blocked domains

nukeSPAM
- Integrate nukeSPAM with RNYA for simplified domain blocking (e.g. add this domain / subdomain to the blocked domains list)
- Integrate nukeSPAM with additional blocking tools for email validation services and Disposable Email Address (DEA) lists / services
- Auto-block domains / subdomains with multiple offenders

The current functions for managing users are inefficient and could be significantly improved by replacing the list, search functions with the DataTables class used in nukeSPAM.

Spammers create new aliases, email addresses, and spoofed IPs all the time and use them to get past nukeSPAM. The option to simply suspend, deactivate, or remove these accounts without providing an explanation would be useful. I'm not sure whether this should be a configuration option (i.e. send a notification when suspending, deactivating, or removing users), or separate functions so you have the choice at the user level. I'm leaning towards the configuration option.

There is a great tool for removing inactive users called Last Visit. This tool runs periodically to identify inactive members, but could modified to also identify spammers, DEA, etc. Integrating it with RNYA might be useful. For example, it could specify the reason when suspending, deactivating or removing an account, and for flagging accounts to be suspended, deactivating or removed.

Sharing a blocked domains list across sites would enable us to minimize maintenance effort across sites. For example, this site's list is quite extensive and includes domains that frequently spam, DEA domains, and most free email domains. It would be helpful to consider replacing or merging or consolidating with the receiving site's current blocked domains.

Since there are limits to services that identify known spammers, as well as to the additional services that validate, identify and qualify email addresses, it's important to only submit those requests after comparing a new registrant with previously blocked domains. Enabling nukeSPAM to easily add blocked domains to the list, will help this, as well as automatically adding domains with more than a specified number of unique blocked email addresses (e.g. Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login!, Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login!). Of course, there should be a list of domains excluded from autoblocking (e.g. gmail.com), as well as a log showing what was autoblocked.

Which of these are important to you? Which are NOT important?
