One Account per IP Address?

In progress One Account per IP Address?

Post by Fouret on January 15th 2014, 4:41 am

Hello! I would like to make my forums into a "One Account per !P Address" rule. There are too many accounts and I'm positive that the majority of those users own about 5-10 accounts. How can I regulate this? I've already used to "One account per IP per day", but it doesn't help at all. Please help?

Hi,

From my knowledge, I don't think Forumotion has an option to reduce or make that certain change.  Rolling Eyes 

Forgive me, or us,
Sir Chivas.

Would you guys be able to add it in one day, hopefully? Hopefully it wouldn't require a lot of coding... ):

You do understand that two accounts that have the same IP address does not exactly mean that it is the same person.  Two family members on the same computer register on your forum will have the same IP address.

You can suggest it here: http://help.forumotion.com/f29-suggestions and hopefully one day it gets accepted because, honestly, I think that will be a great idea to add into Forumotion's Forums.

I disagree because as SLGrey has pointed out, this will prevent family members of current members from joining and in general would be a very bad idea...:|
