Signing Up With the same IP address.

Post by Flight X Pilot93 on January 14th 2007, 6:10 pm

Do you think that it would be a good idea to have it set so that you cannot sign up for a forum if you have already signed up with that same IP address. Or you could turn this feature off if you dont want it on.

I don't like this idea. Myself and my two sisters who live in the same house and share the same IP are all on HE's forum. A lot of people on the site know each other and share computer's/IPs.

This would cause a lot of problems, and is not really necessary.

Well, see I run a School Forum, And I have problems with people making mulitple accounts and saying they are someone else. Or You could make something that would send a PM to the Admin if someone signed up with the same IP.

Just click on the I.P button on the posts.
Except on large forums, it's effective for finding multiple accounts Cool

It's a pretty bad idea for many reasons. But, it's also good for security purposes.
I personally donít agree with it.

I can see why it would be useful but I am against it for the reasons stated above. Many of my members share computers and I just see it as an unnecessary and probmatic thing.

Perhaps instead have a way of checking multple IP users which is easier than the IP button in posts

I don't see this suggestion is open though...
Seen as most users's I.P changes at least every 24 hours Razz
