Administration Panel > General > Security

This feature makes it so that new users with the same IP Address can be made until a period of time. For example, if I created an account with that feature that had 6 hours, I would have to wait 6 hours in order to create another account on the same computer. If I used a different computer with a different IP Address, I'd be able to create another count without any time limit except I'd need t wait 6 hours on that computer to create another.

Basically, this stops spammers from being able to create multiple accounts over and over again that could potentially violate your rules.

It's ultimately up to you. If you would like to add it, I myself, wouldn't put it too much, but even a few hours can help greatly of your forum is at risk for these types of things. So, I'd suggest 2 hours, but it's ultimately up to you.
