Proxy Detection
#1
I've been looking around for a Proxy Detection mod for MyBB and haven't been able to find one. The closest thing I can find is a proxy disabler, but I'd rather just know who is using proxy version ban them outright. Does anyone know of a mod for 1.8.7 that can do this?

As far as I know you have to use a blacklist. Users who use putty portforwarding, VPN or other more sophisticated methods are undetactable as they behave exactly like normal users.

It's generally a better idea to check the ASN of the connecting IP address. If it belongs to a datacenter there's a good chance this is a proxy or VPN of some kind, as opposed to the ASN of a residential or business ISP such as Time Warner Cable (AS3456) etc...
