One Account per IP Address

Post by Fouret on January 16th 2014, 2:44 am

I know many of you forum Administrators had the same issue with one person making multiple accounts before. Why not do something about it to condense the problem? Please vote!

Edit: You have an option to turn it on/off.

I would not be in favor of this--unless it is an option you can turn on and off, I suppose. I have several friends that are on my forum that will visit me and we both use my forum on the same IP. I also have a roommate that visits my forum from time to time, so for him to be unable to visit my forum, as well as for any other friends that get together and visit, it would only harm my abilities to keep those members and lower their satisfaction.

I voted no.

Sorry for the confusion. I meant that site Admins are allowed to choose whether or not they want the option, so YES you can turn it on/off.(:

^ Awesomesauce! Then I'd be for it, why not? Some may lose members over it, but it's the Admin's choice, so that's really no problem to me. =)

Hmm... I don't know. I guess I can see the appeal to some people and I get it would be optional but what about people of the same house wanting to join the same forum? They can't have their own accounts? I just don't know...

Hello !


Nowadays, most people get dynamic IP so it would not work.
If active, people with static IP would just create their account somewhere else.

And of course as already said, would prevent many people using a same IP to register, memebers of a same family, workers of a same enterprise and so on.

And "IP address accounts creation limit, for each 24 hours :" already exists in our admin panel to prevent users to create multiple accounts a day.

Isn't their an option to limit the number of registrations with the same IP address within a period of time?

Its located ACP --> General --> Security

It does the job of stopping multiple accounts to an extent but doesn't impact on what Leah7 describes.

I've voted yes.

And increasing to don't: When a person register on forum with the same IP, the adm will receive a PM and will be responsable to able the new member or not.

And when a same IP use more than one account and one of them was banned the person can let only that one account there's was not banned.

Hi Very Happy

That would technically cause a problem for people with the internet like mine. One of my internet sources has an IP change everyday which makes it very difficult for me if I enter a site that needs 1 IP only.

Though, it's also a problem for some others like friends. I'm friends with Kaizer Lee, actually, she's my relative and she has 2 warnings already. Considering we do live in the same condominium, she uses my personal computer from time to time and introduced me to Forumotion and I actually have a goal of wanting to become as a staff member of this site (Helper at the very least) so it is technically a problem once the staff checks my IP and finds out I possess the same IP/'s as hers :/ .

I voted no for other reasons as well that I won't state.

Regards,
Pizza Boi

I think thesuggestion was poorly worded >>I<< think. Thaht will be so helpful to me but just only do that for register an account.To create another account by the same IP an adminsitrator must activate it (or block register more than one account for IP), but if someone visit your house can use it own account, with no problem. It will be optional only for stop and more times.

I would have to vote yes but
there is already a thread sort of the same here but it's more of a warning system telling the Admins there is more then one member using the same Ip so the admin has the right to ok that member or to say no to it

the link is here
http://help.forumotion.com/t90885-multiple-memberships-ip-warning-system same sort of thing really just warns you not stops you.

This wouldn't work in my instance , since 3 of us are already using 1 IP address, in my house, me , my son, my daughter, they both come on to my forum to chat or whatever. But since you have the option to turn it off, I voted yes.
