IP logging for New Users and PMs

Post by Quirinus on December 26th 2014, 10:43 pm

1) Log the IP the user used when he/she created a new account, and add a button to compare it with the other IPs. (like the IP button on the posts currently does) This would make tracking and catching bad guys even before they can cause problems much easier.

2) Add the IP button to the PMs, as is now on regular posts. I want to know from which IP a PM was sent. To combat vs people that are using 0 post smurfs to stir up trouble. (yes, we allow 0 post people to send PMs, but our forum case is a bit specific and tied with other external resources, so we don't want to disable this feature)

We can somehow live without the 2nd suggestion, but the first one is a basic necessity for any normal forum.

I agree with this a lot. Before the code Jscript made I had to wait till the user logged in to get the IP. Ever since I have used the code, it works great. It was a work in progress but it finally worked.

Thanks for the code, I was going to write my own (as I had to for a bunch of other things since we have limited access to forum php code and db...), but I was just making this thread because this should be a default feature.

It should be default. This is a great suggestion and should be implemented at some point.

Give me the forum code & one db table field, and it would be implemented in less than one hour. Razz

i agree this system prevents us from suffering from those losers (to not put a harsher but derserving curse word for such lowlifes).

We suffered like hell me and some other moderators for not having such an IP controlling system; (and facing such losers) actually existing on free PHP.bb websites and existed already some 10 years ago.

I vote a big "yes"! Smile

so either it can be voted no as it exists already, or proposed by the poll writer as an easier solution around the probem?

no.
if someone wants, he can disable JS, or just that part of JS code from running, thus avoiding his IP being logged. and people that want to do bad things with a new account are usually prone to doing nasty things like that to avoid detection (if they're tech savvy or informed enough).

if it was server side, there would be no way to avoid it (well, except proxy ip, but that can be dealt with as well, as long as it's logged).

but I can see how this probably is low priority for you.
