User a possible banned one, how could I tell?

Post by cookiemonster395 on September 17th 2012, 11:24 pm

I have a member who's posting style is uncannily like that of a member I banned a while back. I was wondering how it would be possible if at all to connect the two?

I clicked the question mark that reveals the IP address but it doesn't really tell me if any other users are sharing the same IP address.

I understand from some ISP's that due to IP's often rotating it may be possible for some to be sharing an IP, but it would just be helpful for me if I had the heads up that this may be who I think it is.

Any help greatly appreciated. xx

Typically I would use the IP address. But Since you're not looking dor that snubby answer.

Find a base to enforce a ban on him. If he comes back just refer back to the previous IP.

If you have banned a member & their IP address they should not be able to rejoin your forum using the same IP.

You can check whether the IPs are the same by going to your AP>>Users & Groups>>Users>>Ban Control>>Ban an IP Address. There you will find the list of IP addresses you have banned. Check to see if the same one is listed.

The problem I have with banning an actual IP address as opposed to a specific user is that if the IP if is a dynamic address it could be shared by innocent parties who might share the same LAN and could effectively be banned also if I were to use this method.

I'm looking in particular for something that might possibly list the members that have shared the IP address rather than just listing the IP addresses a member has used, which doesn't really help me achieve what I want.

Is there a feature that could do this for me?

Nopes, there is no such feature. Banning the user Id is the only sensible way to go about it unless the user keeps returning & spamming with violent or rather bad content.

OK. Thank you for taking the time to reply.

Is this something you could possibly look into for the future?
