Hello everyone!

I need to know if I can detect ONE PERSON having up to 3 or 4 Usernames in this way.

For example:
If a guy called John is going under the Usernames of Robot, Crazie, Jimmy, and Joker, would I be able to know that it is John who is pretending to be all these 4 people?

Thanks for your time.

Many people can share a PC so an IP number doesn't tell you if they are just one person or many different users Smile

true that,

@D0WN
but not always the case, you would have to use your best judgment or just ask who these other people are with accounts coming from the same ip or if it they are just more accounts from the same person.

Or dont ask anything and just delete all other accounts and leave the most active one.
But what ever the case they have to be different email accounts as well. because you can only use one email address per account.

Is there any definitive tool we can use to confirm one way or another if a member has more than one account?

IP addresses can point to multiple users if they are working for the same company, posting at a school or anywhere that has computers routed through an NAT (Network Address Translator). Free wifi hotspots are another example of this issue.

Just deleting accounts makes no sense. Please advise.

Simple. Email or IP.
If the email is different, you can check the IP to see if it matches. In order to see the IP, you go to the admin panel and check, "Who is Online?".

Not Simple at all. Read the post I wrote on the subject. People running through a NAT show up as the same person. Don't know what an NAT is? READ MY POST!

This is already an old topic bumped a year ago, in case you got the same problem, please open a new topic rather than bumping old topics.
