Solved Guest invasion

Post by 50 Calibre on April 28th 2012, 3:37 pm

I have a forum set up for use on a browser game I play. I have it locked down tight so that only members of my alliance can see any part of the forum once they have been activated. Guest who have not be activated can only see the log in/register page. However I have been seeing IP addresses on the forum viewing threads all the while as being guests. I have visited the forum under different browers to make sure I have it set up correctly and it is. I can only access and see the log in/register page as a guest. I have had several other players and family members also go to the sight to verify and they also see only the log in/register page.

So are these guest floating thru my forum members of the forumotion team who are monitoring the forum or do I have a serious security breech going on???

Hello,

Some of the guests might just be considered spiders(if that's what they call it) indexing your forum and placing some information on search engines.

If they are in case a litigation staff(workers on FM company who's in charged of Banning and taking reports of forums), you don't to worry as long as you follow our TOS:
